Hawaii Celebrates the New Year
The New Year brings about optimism, excitement, and celebration, a time to reflect on the past 365 days and welcome the opportunity for a fresh start. Whether it’s from a personal or professional standpoint, new goals are set with the ringing in of the New Year, and taking the time to unwind before taking on these accomplishments is a must.
Celebrating is a time honored tradition, in which we stay up a little bit later, enjoy the company of new and old friends, and take advantage of the chance to take part in big festivities. Around the world, celebrations draw thousands of visitors to central locations for huge parties, from New York City’s Time Square for the famous ball drop or on Nashville’s famous Broadway for the dropping of the guitar, celebrations will be in full force this year, and the celebrations in Hawaii will be among the last in the world to ring in 2018.
Waikiki Beach - Oahu
For those looking to gather with the crowds and enjoy fireworks over the ocean, Waikiki Beach is the place to be. Drawing visitors and locals, this party concludes with a fireworks show that puts all others to shame, exploding as the clock strikes midnight. The streets of Waikiki will be filled with people ending the year and welcoming in a new year in the waning hours of 2017.
If you’re looking for a tamer and more relaxing New Year’s Eve, the offerings at sea are exceptional and you’ll have unmatched views of the fireworks of Waikiki, without the hassle of the crowds. Hawaii Discount offers a number of great New Year’s Eve Cruises on board Oahu’s top rated vessels, complete with dinner, drinks, and entertainment.
The place to be on Maui is Front Street in Lahaina, where a fun evening in the streets takes place, waiting for the New Year to arrive. Maui also features great cocktail cruises and include appetizers and complimentary cocktails, all while cruising along the coastline. Be sure to reserve your spots early, as this is an extremely popular New Year’s Cruise and will sell out fast.
