The Countdown to celebrate the end of 2021 has started now!
Miami Beach is one of the most happening places to bring in the new year and celebrating new years and the arrival of 2022 in this beautiful destination, which will create lifelong memories. Not only will there be parties taking place throughout South Beach, but the area’s restaurants will ensure that you can bring in the new years in style, and the beach, of course, is always a popular place to enjoy the festivities.
The Beacon South Beach is situated perfectly for enjoying end of year activities and start of year fun. Top-notch restaurants are nearby. In fact, A Fish Called Avalon is next door. Clubs, such as Mangos, are a short walk away. The beach is even closer with the waves just a few hundred feet away.
This art deco boutique hotel also provides a respite from all of that excitement, ensuring that you can relax when you want to. In addition, its commitment in providing excellent hotel customer service will ensure that your stay is a positive one.
One other consideration to make when deciding what region, you want to be in while bringing in the new year is the expected weather. Note that even those elsewhere in Florida will often experience a nice bump up in temperature when coming to Miami Beach for New Year’s. Take off your coats, hop into some swim trunks and soak up as much sun as possible, or not, the sun will be here 365 days of the year.
What are some of the events happening in and near South Beach as we welcome in 2022? Read on.
Ode to Joy: A New Year’s Eve Celebrations
Those looking for a classy celebration that is free and family-friendly to bring in the new year should consider heading a mile north of the Beacon South Beach to Collins Park for Ode to Joy: A New Year’s Eve Celebration! There, Orchestra Miami will produce beautiful music from 7 p.m. until 2022 arrives at midnight with a fireworks celebration.
Bayfront Park New Year’s Eve
Arguably the region’s largest celebration bringing in the new year will be downtown Miami’s Bayfront Park New Year’s Eve. This free event consists of a street party full of music, dancing and festivities, starting at 8 p.m. and lasting past midnight. Note that the crowds here are significant, generally numbering in the tens of thousands, which is great if you want that type of atmosphere while those looking for a more laidback celebration should head elsewhere.
