Five Hot Spots to Ring in 2017!
2016 Dec | By
New Year’s Eve always seems to fall between the cracks of all of the holiday cheer and bustle, and often times becomes an after thought. Although we’re only a week-and-a-half out from ringing in 2017, there’s still time to plan a quick escape for the holiday. After all, who doesn’t want to kick off the New Year in style?
We’ve rounded up a handful of exciting go-to hot spots for New Year’s Eve, in no particular order.
1) Miami Beach, Florida – If you haven’t made a reservation by now, you might find it tough to find accommodations for New Year’s but you won’t struggle to find a party or a spot on the beach. Clubs and bars all along Collins Ave. are hopping and if you’re looking for a more quiet swim spot, drive over the causeway to the parks on Key Biscayne.
2) South Lake Tahoe, California – The ultimate winter wonderland, South Lake Tahoe, has something for everyone. Between the casinos, slopes, nightclubs and the annual SnowGlobe Music Festival, South Lake Tahoe is the perfect escape for skiers, boarders, dancers and music-lovers alike. And if you’re determined to swim over New Year’s, check out the awesome indoor pool at Montbleu Resort!

3) San Juan, Puerto Rico – Sure, the Caribbean commonwealth is majorly in debt but that doesn’t mean they can’t party. Park yourself in a nice hotel near old town to find the fun and then swim off the New Year’s blues at Pine Grove Beach in the Isla Verde suburb out by the airport. You’ll feel refreshed and ready to tackle 2017!
4) anytown, Cuba – Retro 1960s cars, cheap prices, beautiful beaches galore and now direct flights from several cities along the East Coast. What’s not to like about Cuba? Sure the tourism infrastructure might be lacking but they are up and running on airBnB -- so for any intrepid traveler, this is sure to be a fun way to ring in the New Year and get some great swimming in at the same time. Feliz año Nuevo!
5) San Diego, California – San Diego kicks the celebrations off early with the Holiday Bowl parade and game on Tuesday, December 27. If college football isn’t your thing, you can find plenty of other activities to do NYE weekend like midnight cruises on the water, beach parties on the sand or a fun dinner in one of the many hip and happening districts. We especially love Coronado Beach
