Perfect For: Celebrate New Year's Eve in the most iconic way possible
When you think of "New Year's Eve," three things come to mind: champagne, "Auld Lang Syne," and the ball dropping in Times Square. Yeah, it's cold and insanely crowded, but it's one of the most famous events in the world, the kind of thing you should do once in your life, especially if you're living here. Make sure you get there early, because it tends to fill up quickly; but it's not like there's a shortage of things to do in Times Square.
