Our Las Vegas New Years Eve Tips:

  • The Clubs – As you’ve seen above, absolutely no shortage of amazing nightclub activity happening for Las Vegas New Years Eve. You’ll be (for the most part) inside, out of the cold and each club pulls out ALL of the stops to make it their biggest, most incredible night of the year. Clicking the links in the above club list will give you details for each event. You may not see the outdoor fireworks, but you’ll certainly be creating some of your own!
  • Downtown Fremont Street Las Vegas – Note: At press time, we have no info on the specifics yet, so we’re just telling you about years past. Consider this controlled chaos. For an entry fee of about $30 (no charge for downtown hotel guests), various bands play throughout the evening as revelers fill the Fremont Street Experience. At midnight, a special “fireworks” show plays out on the four-block long overhead screens. Still outdoors and still a party, but easier to duck inside and not quite as rowdy as The Strip.Las Vegas New Year's Eve 2004 2005 058

  • The Las Vegas Strip – If you want to party with hundreds of thousands of your “closest” friends, this party can’t be beat. The entire Las Vegas Strip is shut down to traffic (generally starts closing down around 8 PM) and you get the chance to booze it up standing right in the middle of one of the world’s most famous streets.During this time, hotels only allow admittance for their guests (including parking in their garages), so scope out the porta-pottties early in the night. Hint: Ask any cop. Temps are usually in the low 40’s, although that doesn’t stop many from wearing very little. How much of a crowd do you want to be in? Simple: The closer to the center of The Strip, the more tightly pack the crowd. Want elbow room? Get yourself south of CityCenter or north of Wynn and keep walking away from the center of The Strip until the crowd thins.

    New “best kept” parking secret with The Strip closed down? Use Russell to get across The Strip (which is not closed that far south) and park in the industrial area just across the I-15 from CityCenter. Quick walk across the overpass and you are in the (city) center of the action. Google Map Example

    You’ll have a good view of the fireworks just about anywhere from The Stratosphere to Mandalay Bay as they erupt at midnight from the roofs of various hotels up and down The Strip.
    Use these resources to help you decide if The Strip is where you want to be:
