It's time to wrap up 2018. How will you celebrate the end of the year that brought us Kanye West rapping, "Poopity scoop"?
It won't be an easy choice, because few cities can match Miami's New Year's Eve prowess. Great weather and party excess come together perfectly to create an amazing end-of-the-year kiss-off. That also means nightclubs and hotels don't have to do much to persuade entertainers to spend their last few hours of 2018 in the Magic City.
This year, the Fontainebleau's NYE celebration returns with Latin music superstar J. Balvin and EDM DJ/producer Alesso. Across the bridge, Migos will help E11even ring in 2019, while Jamie Jones and Marco Carola will keep the party going well beyond midnight at Space.
However, if you aren't interested in spending your life
