Fireworks On The River

What’s New Year’s Eve without fireworks? There are tons of spots to watch awesome firework shows throughout Philadelphia. Our choice? The Rivers Casino New Year’s Eve Fireworks on the Waterfront. This exhilarating fireworks show has two free showings — one at 6pm set to music by the great American composer, John Williams, and the other at midnight which will feature groovy hits from the 1970’s.

A Night At Home

There’s no shame in the stay-at-home game. Some of our favorite New Year’s Eve hangs include staying in, having a nice dinner in our pajamas and popping a bottle of bubbles when the clock strikes midnight. After the year we’ve all had, it might be nice just to hang out at home and hit the hay by 12:05.
