Here are a couple alternative ideas for fun New Year’s Eve that don’t require boozing it up …

  • Ski & Stay — Say “See ya later” to the city lights and hit the road to your favorite ski resort. Many offer ski & stay packages that include lift tickets and accommodations.
  • Fireworks in your own backyard. If it’s is legal where you live, this could be a really fun way to spend NYE. Grab some fireworks stashed away from July 4th and ring in the new year with Roman candles, spinning tops, and sparklers.
  • Stay home and rent some movies. Cuddle up on the couch and watch those movies you have been wanting to see or the new ones you just received for Christmas.

Do you avoid the party scene on NYE? What are your plans?
