New Years Eve in Las Vegas

New Year's Eve 2015 Las Vegas

 

New Year's eve is a great time to be in Vegas. Ring out the old and ring in the new, the Las Vegas way. New Year's eve in Las Vegas is always packed on the Vegas strip and don't expect this year to be any different. The 2014 Las Vegas new year's eve celebrations drew over 320,000 visitors to Las Vegas and this year's crowd is expected to be larger. The entire 4 miles of the Vegas strip, from Russell to Sahara, which covers all hotels from Mandalay Bay at the Strip’s southern end to Stratosphere at the north, will be closed down to traffic around 6pm.

On this night, the Vegas Strip becomes a giant pedestrian mall and everyone parties outside till midnight. Tens of thousands of visitors walk the Vegas strip decked out in silly hats, noisemakers and holiday cheer. Las Vegas New Years eve 2015 will include a spectacular fireworks show.

It's going to be freezing! Bundle up. It also helps to have a plan 3 or 4 hours before midnight. If you plan to celebrate indoors, remember once it hits 11:00pm all the hotels stop letting people in. They re-open their doors around 12:30am. ( To avoid crazy drunk people I guess). Actually it's their way of keeping the crowds inside the casino within occupancy limits set by Clark county. You don't want to find yourself stuck outside and have to use the bathroom.

If you don't want to spend money on hotel, food and don't like crowds, New Year's is not the time to be in Vegas. People come from all over the world for this holiday and it's as busy as it gets. Sadly everything is really expensive during this time.

New Years Eve in Las Vegas Besides the Vegas strip, another great place to ring in 2015 in Las Vegas would be at the Fremont Street Experience in downtown Vegas. The New Year's Eve America's Party at Fremont Street is always a blast.

This year the best of the best will be performing for 9 combined hours of live concerts on three stages. Here are a few things you should know about this event:

It's an adult only event. You must be 21 yrs old to attend.
Admission: TBD
Get there early to pick up your tickets at the box office.
Gates open 6:00pm
Capacity is limited so plan to get there early
There's no better place to ring in the new year than downtown on the Fremont Street Experience.

2015 Las Vegas New Year's Eve Fireworks

 

If you are looking for the best place on the Vegas strip to be as the clock strikes 12 midnight, you should know that the 2015 Las Vegas strip fireworks display calls for fireworks to be shot from seven casino rooftops this year. There will be music and fireworks shot from the rooftops of the

Stratosphere Tower,
MGM Grand,
Caesars Palace,
Planet Hollywood,
Treasure Island (TI) ,
The Venetian,
Aria Resort & Casino at MGM Resorts International's CityCenter complex.

The fireworks show will last 8 minutes and 23 seconds and consist of more than 80,000 fireworks explosions.

Great spot to watch fireworks

Besides getting to the Vegas strip early and securing a great spot with a view of the roof-top of one of the hotels listed above, another great place to enjoy great view of the midnight fireworks is the upper floors of various parking garages.

If you can get there early, other good vantage points are the miX Lounge and Foundation Room atop Mandalay Bay. These venues offer a bird's eye view off all the action on The Vegas Strip with an outdoor patio and floor-to-ceiling windows.

The outdoor patios at Diablo's at Monte Carlo and Nine Fine Irishmen at New York-New York will put you right in the middle of all the action and great spots to watch the fireworks .

 

 

 

Las Vegas New Year's Eve 2015 survival tips

Get to the strip early, around 5 or 6 p.m. Earlier if possible because they will close the strip down around 6 p.m.

If you plan to ring in the New Year at Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas, plan to get there early.

If you drive, park your car in the hotel garage nearest to where you'll be partying and remember, you won't be able to leave until well after midnight.

If you're going to a party in a club, enjoy it for all it's worth considering what it will cost to get in. Also be aware you can step outside to watch the New Year's fireworks displays but check with the club first.

Dress warm. Las Vegas is a desert and it gets very cold at night.

Beware of the "mystery kissers", who just kiss someone at random at the New Year. They're OK and funny,

It does get crowded and very loud. Basically, it's lots of people, food, alcohol, music, dancing, drunks and 100% fun.

Just because you are in Vegas doesn't mean there are no laws. Take a minute to read the Las Vegas New Years Eve Ordinances to understand what you can and cannot get away with. The cops here do not play and the famous, "I'am a tourist" excuse does not work for them.

Don't be afraid to sip your favorite drink as you go - alcohol is allowed to be consumed on the streets for this holiday celebration. (Must be 21 yrs or older) - metal and glass containers are banned.

Beware of the city's general curfew and the Fremont Street area curfew. Anyone under 18 years old must now be accompanied by an adult.

The Las Vegas Monorail will be the only public transportation operating on the strip. Trains will be running until 3 a.m. Jan. 1.

Bus Routes 201 (Tropicana Avenue), 202 (Flamingo Road), and 203 (Spring Mtn. Road / Desert Inn Road / Lamb Blvd) will provide the closest possible access to the Strip but will not stop on the Strip.

If you are planing to get to a particular hotel on the Strip after the strip closure, here are buses and New Years Eve bus stops close to the Vegas strip.

Note: The Vegas Strip is scheduled to close to vehicle traffic around 6:00 p.m. on New Year's Eve
