This American tradition is a spectacular way to welcome 2018!
Spend your New Year’s Eve at Times Square in NYC and treat yourself to this iconic celebration.
Where the Ball Drops
This celebration occurs at Times Square, with the ball dropping from atop One Times Square.
There is no need for tickets to view the ball dropping, though you should plan to arrive early. Dress warmly because you’ll be outside for quite a while, and New York gets chilly this time of year.
Drink, Eat, and Be Merry
Many restaurants and bars in Times Square will be open during the New Year’s Eve celebrations.
In the city that never sleeps, you can find any kind of food or drink you are looking for. For more information, check the Times Square Alliance’s Restaurant Guide. Remember that if you leave a place in the viewing areas, you likely won’t be able to return to it.
After the ball drops, spend the first hours of 2018 at the Courtyard LaGuardia Airport Hotel. A warm, cozy bed will be waiting to bring you and your dreams into the new year.
