Where To Go For New Years Eve

2014The Holiday season is coming to a close – and it’s about time to ring in the new year. There are no shortage of great places to spend New Years Eve in Long Beach and Orange County, CA – but I’ll give you some highlights if you’re stumped for ideas.

Downtown Long Beach New Years Eve

Downtown Long Beach is hosting a huge New Years Eve bash on Pine Ave and Rainbow Harbor. There is a FREE Family Friendly celebration on the Rainbow Harbor waterfront from 5-10pm featuring live music and activities for kids. At 9pm there will be a ten minute fireworks display, sponsored by Gladstones, for families to ring in the new year.

The Pine Avenue Celebration will begin at 8pm till 2am, and will encompass 2 city blocks. There will be several options for live music, with two headlining bands: The Rival Sons and The Mowgli’s. Tickets to the Pine Avenue Celebration are $15 presale, and $20 at the door – it is advised you pick up your tickets prior to 8pm to avoid long lines. Tickets are available on the Downtown Long Beach website.

Long Beach Transit is offering FREE rides from 5pm to 2:30 am to help you get around safely! 

The Queen Mary New Years Eve Celebration

The Queen Mary is a New Year Eve staple every year in Long Beach. What can I say? It’s elegant, on the water, and it’s a great place to watch the fireworks. This year’s event, “Passport To A New Year” sounds really fun, with rooms honoring ports-of-call The Queen Mary would have visited as a passenger ship. Themed ballrooms for  Bombay, Rio de Janiero, Manhattan, Cherbourg, and Scotland will take attendees on a voyage of fun. General Admission starts at $99 – with various VIP and add-on packages available to make your evening extra-special.  Tickets are available on the Queen Mary website

From CBS Los Angeles:

“If you are looking for a little romance sprinkled into your New Year’s Eve party, then look no further than A Midnight Kiss at the Avenue of Arts. This Costa Mesa hotel party is in its third year, offering couples and strangers alike an open bar and a DJ to ring in the new year.”

This is the 3rd annual Midnight Kiss at Avenue of the Arts Wyndham – an event with three different rooms and an open bar.
