New Year's Eve in Amsterdam

Comments  (3)

Dec 4, 2012 —  Everyone has at least one epic New Year’s Eve party memory. After all, New Year’s is one of those few times when we’re all pretty much encouraged to go a little crazy; something you can do with relative ease thanks to major citywide parties that are organized all over the world.

Even if you have never set foot in New York, you’ve no doubt seen the millions of people who cram into and around Times Square to watch the ball drop. But that’s hardly the only game around.

Huge fireworks displays are commonplace in London during its aptly named New Year's Eve Fireworks Display, but also in Rome at the massively attended Piazza del Popolo festivities, and in San Francisco, Chicago, Amsterdam, Madrid, and beyond.

Most of these parties are free to attend, leaving you with plenty of coin left in your pocket for all the other holiday events (and shopping demands) that do require money. Check out our great collection of New Year's parties below.

It's been a yearly tradition for my friends and I to gather at someones house. We all bring drinks and food or snacks. We have music and party all night long until the countdown. Then we all gather do the eating grapes tradition hug each other and continue partying :D

Find a nearby house party so I can avoid the roads and/or public transportation completely. Catching a cab in Chicago or SF after midnight is miserable. Catching public trans after midnight in SF is nearly impossible. Chicago makes it all free but it is still a pain. So I like to find a place I can walk to or sleep at and ease into the new year with drunk slumber after a night with friends.

Love the tradition in Madrid of eating grapes at midnight...one for each bell rung from the clock. Seeing everyone try to get the grapes in their mouth while intoxicated is also pretty entertaining.
