8. San Diego: Big Parties on the Beach

Why do you go to San Diego? For the warm weather and beaches. The New Year’s Eve Beach Party brings all the best of that together at the Catamaran Resort. You could also choose to skip the sand and head straight to the water. There are plenty of New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day cruising options. The Hornblower is the most well-known and popular, but you can also start the New Year with the New Year’s Eve Yacht Party — the floating sibling of the beach party. While there are plenty of parties to choose from, Big Night San Diego probably offers the most bang for your buck, with 10 different party areas and five dance floors — at the Hilton on the beach, of course.
