A Dream New Year's Eve Destination

Alumni Steward Platinum 8 Reviews

New Year's Eve--it's more than just a date; it's an experience, the ending of one year and a commencement of another when we'll take a cup o' kindness, yet, as the song goes.


What's that special destination where you'd like to spend New Year's Eve?  Is it Times Square where you and a million or so of your new friends will ring in the new year, or is it more leisurely at the other end of the US, sitting at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco hoping the fog will not be too thick to enjoy an evening under the stars?  Perhaps you'd like to get away and see Paris, the city of lights, for that day? Maybe down under in scenic Sydney on a warm end of December night? Dreams aside, what are your plans for December 31st?


Check out the poll posted at the top of the page in which you can vote for your favorite Dream New Year's Eve destination.  I've got my choice marked, what about you?

    Alas, I'm a boring person.  My New Year's Eve is always the same, whether at home, in Paris or Rome.  To bed at 8pm with the hope that outside noise won't wake me up until the New Year.  That's when life gets really interesting, with the NFL playoffs and Super Bowl.

    Las Vegas, Baby!!  Bring in the new year in the city that never sleeps. You dont have to dress warm and stand in crouds, the drinks are cheap, you dont need a cab, no children, and lastly, you already speak the language.

    Not on the list but I vote for California's Desert during NYE. We've done this for the last couple years.  A nice party (no cover in the past) is always held at the JW Marriott and a local attorney (not affiliated with the hotel) is kind to provide FREE cab rides home for all who need that service.  A very generous thing.

     

    If the weather cooperates you can watch the swans gliding along the Lake at the JW and see more stars that you ever thought were possible. And we West Coasters can watch NYC's ball drop, stay warmer than they are and be in bed by 10 pm PST, at the latest!

    I would like to have a really fast jet at my disposal and spend the New Year in as many locations as possible.  My husband votes for Hawaii.

    While I'd prefer to be somewhere (ANYWHERE!) warm, I will be in New Jersey with friends and family doing a progressive dinner party on NYE.

    Stepping:

     

    An experience it is! After having spent most of our years celebrating in the cold up north and then many more with friends when we had our home in the Caribbean, we have now settled into our Florida landscape for the occasion. We like to share it with good friends (when they can make it from their faraway destinations) and neighbors from our Santa Rosa Beach area.

     

    Since we are in the central time zone (yes, northwest FL is in the central time zone!) we can all watch the craziness in Times Square and then when we strike midnight here we retreat to our upper floor deck and watch the incredible fireworks displays that unfolds along the coastline in front of us from Destin to Panama City Beach. It is quite a sight!

    NewHilton:

     

    You betcha!.....as long as there's an invite to the progressive dinner!

     

    That might be a thought.....wouldn't it be a grand idea if Marriott could put together an Insiders bash somewhere!

    Tonga then fly to New Zealand. Marriott really needs to get to those places.
