You could freeze your ass off in New York's Times Square watching a crystal ball drop, or you could enjoy the warmer climes of Miami and welcome 2017 without the North Face apparel.
Miami might not do a lot of things rights (see: real estate, climate change, politics), but it certainly knows how to party. And New Year's Eve just so happens to be the day Miami's party prowess really shines. With every nightclub, hotel, and music venue hoping you'll come ring in 2017 with them, there's definitely no shortage of options. Acts like Billy Joel, Justin Bieber, and Jamie Jones are set to help Miami celebrate the new year, guaranteeing that at least the first few hours of 2017 are going to be amazing.
We'll be updating as new parties get announced, so check back often. Is your New Year's Eve party missing? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
