New Year's Eve Fun Facts

Most of you know the basics when it comes to ringing in the New Year, however, we wanted to share with you some Fun Facts & Tips we thought of to help you make the most out of your celebration!  

  1. NYE in Times Square is a bonafide international phenomenon!
  2. In every step you make you will be submersed in crowds of people from all walks of life, from all areas of the world, in all ages! There is no where else in the world, except the Olympics, that you will be around such a diverse group of people!
  3. Be sure to enjoy and take in all the excitement around you, as this is all part of the experience.
  4. Don't forget to bring your camera! You will want to remember the fun moments with your friends and loved ones, record the ball dropping, and take photos to preserve this memory forever.
  5. Don't forget to bring your friends! What is more fun than bringing in the New Year with your best and closest friends. Who may even make new friends too!
  6. And lastly, don't forget to bring your patience and sense of humor. Venturing to your Applebee's party location may cause quite a frustration with all the crowds, but don't let this ruin your night. Keep your cool and you, and those around you will have an amazing, unforgettable night.
