Surviving New Year’s in Las Vegas

The countdown to 2016 is sure to be the party of the year. Fireworks, cocktails, music and more! Here’s a few tips on how to survive the best night of 2015.Viva Vision 4th of July

Arrive Early and Prepare for a Late Night
Get to your New Year’s destination early. The City of Las Vegas begins street closures several hours prior to festivities beginning. After the fireworks go off, the party really begins. Plan to get home after the sun rises.
Take a photo of the garage and floor that you are on. If you ring 2016 in right, you’ll need that photo to find your way back.
Dress Warm
Although snow may not be falling across the city, Las Vegas is a desert and nights get pretty chilly. Bundle up with sweaters, scarves, gloves and your best New Year’s hat.
Drink up because Las Vegas has plenty of transportation to get you where you need to go. RTC public transportation is offering free rides every 20 minutes from 6 p.m. New Year’s Eve to 9 a.m. New Year’s Day. Pick up locations include Westcliff Airport Express and the Centennial Express. Between Uber, Taxis and public transit, you’ll have not excuse to even consider drinking and driving.

The biggest tip to remember for New Year’s in Las Vegas is HAVE FUN! Ringing in 2016 in Las Vegas is an experience you won’t find in your average city.
