Park City (Utah)

This inviting town just east of Salt Lake has scheduled things for adults that wants to celebrate with their kids… then later in the evening, without them. The fireworks come early on New Year's Eve, with an afternoon of music and events like a rail jam, followed by 7:30 p.m. fireworks at the Beach at Canyons Resort. Then put the children to bed and head out toward Main Street, where the packed historic business district can party like Hollywood. Sky Blue’s rooftop lounge will make you feel like you are previewing the Sundance party circuit (and it has a hot tub) and the chic Star Bar on Main Street will be pumping a dance-first DJ vibe. Plus, Emmy-winner Kristen Chenoweth (Glee) will headline a show at The Eccles Center for those in the mood for a dazzling soprano.
