New Year's Eve NYC Party Tips

Before you travel to NYC for the NYE 2017 celebration, there are some helpful New York tips you need to know. Scroll below for a complete list of helpful tips when it comes to celebrating New Years Eve in NYC.

  • Plan Your NYC Trip Way In Advance: This is perhaps the most important tip we can give you when planning a New Years Eve trip to NYC. The best hotels in NYC are booked well in advance of New Years Eve. We recommended reserving your NY hotel well in advance if you plan on celebrating New Year's Eve in NYC and using some of the New York City hotel promo codes to save you a little extra to spend elsewhere.
  • New Year's Eve Parties

    That crazy New Year's Baby can't wait for that ball to drop! Since 2000, the ball is now designed by Waterford crystal.

  • Reserve Your NYC NYE Party Tickets: New Years Eve parties in NYC often require attendees to purchase tickets, which can range anywhere from $25 to well over $500. Don't wait until the last minute to reserve your spot at the best New Years Eve parties in Manhattan - NY party tickets often cost more at the door, and in many cases are sold out altogether.
  • Cash or Open Bar?: Before purchasing your NYC New Years Eve party tickets, make sure to note whether the New York party features a cash bar or an open bar. While open bar NYC tickets usually cost more, they tend to pay off over the course of the night, which is why we recommend them over cash bar NYE parties in NYC.
  • Avoid Times Square: Unless you plan on spending New Years Eve in Times Square, its best to completely avoid this popular NYC attraction. With well over a million people descending on Times Square, there's a good chance you'll get stuck in the New Years Eve NYC crowd.
  • Eat a Good New York Meal: With many NYC tourists choosing to celebrate the New Year with alcohol, it's best to fill up on a great NY meal before you hit the town. Check out the NYCTourist restaurants page for a list of the best restaurants in NYC.

And our final NYC New Year's Eve tip is ...

  • Stay Safe! We know New Years Eve in NYC is one of the most exciting nights of the year, but make sure to take the necessary precautions before you hit the best NYE parties in NYC. This means don't drink and drive - use the NYC subway or hail a NY taxi cab! Also, don't travel with tons of cash, and make sure to know where your wallet and purse are at all times.

After all, safety in NYC ensures you'll have the best possible time at your NYC New Years Eve party!
