It's possible people haven't been this excited about the arrival of a new year since the turn of the millennium. The death of George Michael was the final, crushing blow in a year that's been a total fail for everyone except Donald Trump.

But there's hope in the promise of a new beginning, so we've got serious cause for celebration. And if you want to watch things go kablooey (like all of your naive dreams for 2016), here are the best places to watch fireworks on NYE.

Bye, 2016. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
