Where To See Fireworks in Vegas on New Year's Eve

December 15, 2011 at 7:24 PM | by | ()

It's probably one of the most asked questions on The Strip on New Year's Eve -- where should I be at 11:59 p.m. to see the fireworks the best?

We now know that eight Strip hotels will shoot pyro from their rooftops on December 31st. They are Tropicana, MGM Grand, Aria, Planet Hollywood, Caesars Palace, Treasure Island, Venetian, and Stratosphere.

With that list, we would probably plant ourselves on Las Vegas Boulevard near the turn off into CityCenter. That'll put you right in front of Aria and within eyesight of MGM and Planet Hollywood's displays. Maybe even Caesars' and Trop's, too. Another choice would be on The Strip roundabouts The Mirage, giving you a view of Venetian's, TI's and Caesars' displays. Whatever you do, do not place yourself right at the base of any those hotels. Unless you want to use the neck strain as an excuse to go to the spa in the morning.

The show itself will last almost nine minutes so if you happen to lose track of time, you should still be able to run outside (as long as you're not too deep inside any particular hotel) and catch something.
