Watch the sizzling fireworks display
To celebrate New Year’s Eve, the Las Vegas Strip is hosting America’s Party–a stunning fireworks display launching from the rooftops of seven iconic resorts: MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, ARIA Resort & Casino, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Caesars Palace, Treasure Island, The Venetian, and Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower.

Revelers can rock the night away at the Fremont Street Experience with the Downtown Countdown New Year’s Eve 2016 Celebration. This year the ultimate New Year’s Eve street party is themed ‘TributePalooza’ and features 13 of the world’s greatest tribute bands. The event takes place from 6 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. on Dec. 31, with a year-in-review retrospective on the Viva Vision screen, a midnight countdown, and an epic fireworks display.

The High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel, at The LINQ Promenade offers a 360-degree view, 550 feet above the Las Vegas streets, making it one of the destination’s best spots to watch the New Year’s Eve fireworks display. Visitors can purchase VIP cabins that begin loading at 10:30 p.m. and will be at a standstill for the midnight display.

Attend a concert or show
The “Entertainment Capital of the World” is ready to delight all visitors with an endless amount of world-class performances.

Britney Spears will ring in the year with two dazzling performances on Dec. 30 and 31 at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

Celine Dion, the best-selling female artist in history, will perform all of her number-one hits and more at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas will play host to a roaring New Year’s Eve weekend celebration. Guests can celebrate 2016 with Bruno Mars at The Chelsea, rap star Fetty Wap at Marquee Nightclub, Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox at Rose. Rabbit.
