Posted on Blog, Family and Home, Holidays January 1, 2019

Are you spending New Year’s in Florida with the family this year? Here are 5 memorable ways to celebrate the biggest night of the year.

Who needs a white Christmas?

Despite what the songs say, most people would probably prefer to celebrate the holiday season in flip-flops. Who needs snow then you could surround yourself with beaches and lush, tropical landscapes?

What Florida lacks in seasonally appropriate weather, it more than makes up for in cool places to party and unique ways to ring in a new year.

If you’re looking for the most fun way to celebrate New Year’s in Florida, look no further. Here’s everything you need to know about the best way to ring in the New Year in the Sunshine State.

  1. Hit the Beach!

No matter where you are in Florida — you’re never more than 60 miles from the beach.

It doesn’t matter if you’re closer to the white sandy beaches of the Gulf Coast, the crystal blue waters of the Atlantic. Most coastal cities hold a New Year’s celebration that, more often than not, includes fireworks out over the water.

So, why not ring in the new year in classic Floridian style by heading out to the beach.

Grab your beach chairs, gather your friends and family, plan a cookout, and get ready to count down to midnight in the sand and under the stars.

  1. Celebrate at Universal Studios

Orlando is Florida’s most visited city for a good reason. If theme parks know how to do anything, it’s how to throw a celebration you’ll never forget.

Universal Studios Florida, arguably the best version of the park, is famous for its spectacular park-wide parties.

With fireworks, parades and musical performances, Universal Studios is the place to be when the clock strikes midnight.

  1. Get on the Water

There’s no better way to experience fireworks than on the water.

Most coastal cities in Florida have a few spots where you can either rent a boat or catch a ride on one. Whatever way you do it, welcoming the new year on the water will always be a fantastic way to celebrate.

  1. Ring in the New Year with Mickey

Disney is the original theme park, which means you can expect them to set the bar a little bit higher when it comes to celebrations.

There’s no more magical way to welcome a new year than by watching their dazzling fireworks display over Cinderella’s castle. That said, the Magic Kingdom isn’t your only option.

Every park has its own special and unique way to celebrate. So, you’ll be sure to find something to excite everyone in your family — from the princesses to the Jedi-in-training.

One of the best parts about ringing in the new year at Disney is that you don’t have to go into the park to do it.

Disney Springs holds its own special New Year’s Eve event as well. So, you can soak up all the magic, without paying entry ticket prices.

  1. Visit Sloppy Joe’s in Key West

Finally, if you’re looking for the most Floridian New Year’s celebration around, you’ll have to head down to the state’s southernmost city.

Key West is famous for its weird and wonderful city-wide New Year’s celebration. But, what makes Key West’s party better than every other party in Florida is watching the Conch Shell Drop over Sloppy Joe’s.

While the famous Conch is not the only fun drop you’ll find in the state, it’s one of the most fun to witness in person, and a great way to ring in the new year.
