Where Will You Party on New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas?

New Year’s Eve is the biggest party of the year in Las Vegas, and if you’re lucky enough to be in town for the world-class festivities, brace yourself for a one-of-a-kind, you-probably-won’t-remember-much-of-it (in a good way) celebration.


Baby, you're a firework. Metaphorically, in all likelihood.

Of course, one of the challenges of a New Year’s Eve in Sin City is figuring out where to party. There are so many options, it can be overwhelming.

If your plans aren’t already set, you might consider one of the New Year’s Eve events at hotels in the Caesars Entertainment family. Nightclubs and restaurants across Vegas will be hosting New Year’s Eve blow-outs, often with celebrity guests, such as Nicki Minaj at Pure Nightclub at Caesars Palace.


Nicki Minaj was born in Saint James, Trinidad and Tobago, which we dare you to find on a map.

Our friends at the Las Vegas Sun have put together a fairly epic list of all the events in Vegas on New Year’s Eve.

Of course, a highlight of the evening will be the fireworks displays launched from the top of seven Strip hotels, including Caesars Palace and Planet Hollywood.


You're going to need more eyes to see it all.

This year’s 8-minute fireworks display will have a musical accompaniment, featuring songs like “Auld Lang Syne,” “Whistle,” “Raise Your Glass,” “Le7els,” “Light up the Sky” and “Glad You Came,” several of which we actually recognize.

Yes, this blog took this photo. We are not a complete troglodyte, you know.

For the eighth year, the dazzling fireworks will be coordinated by the premier fireworks company in the nation, Fireworks by Grucci. Flawlessly executing a show from atop seven hotels is a massive undertaking.

We don’t want to get overly technical, but the fireworks are shot out of these tube thingys.


The tubes are connected by wire thingys.

There are probably computers involved, too. And circuits of some sort. Look, we can’t know everything about everything. We are a blog, not a V’Ger. (Ahem.)


It's essential your fireworks be kept as fresh as possible.

The fireworks display in Vegas on New Year’s Eve is the biggest anywhere in the world. And even if that statement hasn’t been “verified,” or even “researched a little,” we want it to be true, and it’s definitely the biggest in America, so there.


This is what your "ooh" and "ahh" look like prior to take-off.

Even if you won’t be in Vegas for the big night, you can still take a look at our fairly inept coverage of last year’s fireworks extravaganza, captured in all its out-of-focus glory from the highest point at Rio Las Vegas, just above the VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub.


New Year's Eve in Vegas wouldn't be New Year's Eve in Vegas without accoutrements.

Oh, and before we forget, street closures around the Las Vegas Strip get tricky on New Year’s Eve, so plan carefully.

No matter where you spend your New Year’s Eve, have a blast, and here’s hoping your 2013 is filled with frosty cocktails, lap dances, slot jackpots and high roller suites. Several of which can be found in Las Vegas. We’re just saying.
