For years we have taken a vacation after Christmas. Partly because it's a good time for us to get away and partly because our anniversary falls between Christmas and New Years. We have spent New Years Eve in many interesting places.
- South Beach (more than once, including 1999)
- Hollywood, Florida
- Key West (last year)
- Charleston, South Carolina
- Pensacola Beach, Florida
- Clearwater FL.
- Puerto Rico
- Belize City
- San Jose, Costa Rica
- Montego Bay, Jamaica
This year we are taking a beginning of the year trip but we aren't leaving until New Years Day. We will add another impressive location to our list, New Orleans.
It occurred to me that after living in New Orleans for many years (actually most of my life) we haven't spent a festive New Years Eve in our home city. Every year we stayed here has been either a small group of friends or a quiet evening at home watching fireworks across the rooftops, sipping champagne.
This year I plan to change that.
We are actively soliciting New Years Eve suggestions from anyone who wants to contribute. The only caveat is we must make a noon flight on New Years Day.
