It happens to you every year. Once you have finally begun to get settled into 2013 — boom --— another new year has snuck up on you. It’s about that time to make your New Year’s resolutions, drink away the past year’s regrets, and celebrate starting all over again in 2014. Miamians looking to ring in the New Year with a bang can catch fireworks shows in Miami Beach and Bayfront Park.
Few places rival the energy and partying of Miami Beach any time of the year, but come New Year’s Eve, it’s even better. Granted, the traffic will be a nightmare, but you’ll likely wake up on the shore with sand plastered to your face at dawn when the traffic is all gone anyway. Gather on the sand (Ocean Drive and Eighth Street, Miami Beach) for the City of Miami Beach New Year’s Eve Celebration. There will be a live musical performances and entertainment throughout the night, and the best part is it’s free. The festivities run from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Tue., Dec. 31, 9 p.m.-2 a.m., 2013
