Though not the most exciting option, sleeping to celebrate the New Year is the activity of choice for many small children and people who prefer to spend the night as they spend every night – warm and comfortable in their bed. Set the alarm clock for 11:55, watch the ball drop on T.V., or simply call family to say ‘Happy New Year’ and return to sweet dreams.

9. Watch Ball Drop in NYC

Disney World is party central for many families on New Year’s Eve.

3. Run 4 Miles in Central Park

While a mass of people stand pressed together in Times Square, another (more spacious) gathering forms about 30 blocks north in Central Park. Join the New York Road Runners for a festive 4-mile run beginning at the stroke of midnight. Hundreds of runners and non-runners run beneath the fireworks each year. Arrive early for music and festivities at the band shell. Enjoy the champagne stop at mile 2, local crowds cheering you on, and the bagels after. Wake up on New Year’s Day with 4 miles already under your fitness belt.

2. Fireworks over the Falls

Take in the scenic, peaceful falls on the New York side of Niagara Falls during the day. At night, head to Queen Victoria Park for food, live music, drinks, and the firework show overfalls for a breathtaking New Year’s Eve spectacle. More than 3 million lights illuminate the falls for the 30,000 people in attendance and the nation that watches the live broadcast.

1. Host a Party

Sometimes it’s fun to get all dressed up. Give yourself a social circle someplace to go and host a potluck New Year’s Party in your home. Hang a disco ball and white Christmas lights, play the ball dropping in the background, and make a champagne toast at the stroke of midnight.
