Besides boasting architecture that makes you feel like you’re in a fairytale, Barcelona is one of the most festive feeling cities on earth! NYE fireworks ring out from the rooftops of many of the city’s biggest hotels and there are parties that fill the streets of Las Ramblas and Plaza Catalunya all night. Book a table at 4 Gats and enjoy one of Picasso’s favorite meals before you hit the streets!
This Cajun city boasts the longest recorded NYE fireworks display in the nation. They are 15 minutes long and they explode across the sky over the Mississippi River! Live music fills the streets with the sounds of brass bands and jazz and the city even has it’s own version of the “ball drop” with a Fleur de Lis in its place in Jackson Square.
With this city’s most famous export being champagne, how can you NOT have a good time?! The sites and sounds will provide for excellent Instagram fare. I’m headed here this year and cannot wait! I mean, there’s a light show surrounding the Eiffel Tower! There’s also a huge street party within the Champs Elysees. Oh and let’s not forget the glitzy bars and clubs–the choices are endless in the city of love!
