If you’ve ever been to Savannah, you know that we know how to throw a party. If you’ve never been to Savannah, there’s no better time to discover our party-throwing ways than on the biggest party of the year — New Year’s Eve. To help you plan your New Year’s stay, we’ve put together a list of some of the best places to enjoy the big night.
City Market New Year’s Eve
Enjoy the celebration in the center of it all with New Year’s Eve at City Market. Make reservations at one of the many restaurants, then stroll through the market to enjoy the festivities, including live outdoor music throughout the evening. Stop by the many bars to enjoy their New Year’s festivities, or keep the party going outside. Since open containers are allowed in Savannah’s historic district, you can take your drinks on the go.
Tybee New Year’s Eve Fireworks
If you’re looking for a quieter New Year’s Eve, take a trip to the beach to enjoy fireworks with the family during the Tybee Island NYE Fireworks show. Bring a blanket and chairs and huddle together on the sand as you enjoy the fireworks display, or take it all in from a beachfront restaurant. The fireworks are set off from the Walter W. Parker Pier at midnight, so be sure to get a spot to enjoy the show.
Up the Cup on River Street
This is Savannah, and we don’t do anything the normal way. So, instead of the traditional New Year’s Eve ball drop, Savannahians welcome in the new year with a twist; by raising a cup instead of dropping a ball. The Up the Cup event takes place every New Year’s Eve on River Street from 8 PM to 12 AM, and it’s a salute to the to-go cups you’ll see while walking through Savannah’s historic downtown streets. Stop by to enjoy the fireworks and countdown, and raise a glass of your own to the new year.
Looking to avoid the bars this New Year’s Eve? Well, Savannah offers a unique way to ring in the new year with New Year’s Eve riverboat cruises. These three-hour cruises feature hors d’oeuvres, music and entertainment, a champagne toast at midnight and a cash bar for more drinks. If you’re interested in enjoying the party on the water, you’ll need to make reservations early, so don’t wait until the last minute to secure your spot.
NYE Yoga Celebration
If you’re looking to get a head start on your new year’s resolution, there’s no better way than with an evening of mindfulness, mediation and inspiration for the new year. Savannah Power Yoga’s New Year’s Eve Yoga celebration begins at 10:30 PM, and will feature a yoga session followed by a fire ceremony to burn off the old and make room for the new. This is the perfect place to get a healthy start to the new year.
