The Fireworks

Unfortunately, the famous Las Vegas New Year’s Eve fireworks on the Strip won’t be happening to ring in 2020. Don’t fret! Downtown Las Vegas will still be making the sky dazzle at midnight. The fireworks show will go on at the Plaza Hotel & Casino. You’ll be able to catch a good view of the fireworks at Stadium Swim at Circa Las Vegas. In true Vegas fashion, Downtown will be sending out 2020 with a bang – and hopefully a flash of light for a brighter 2021.


The Hotels

If the typical Las Vegas New Year’s Eve parties can’t take place like previous years, you know our hotels will still pull out all the stops to make sure your experience is the best possible. And since it’s Vegas, it’s never just a hotel. It’s a casino, bar, sportsbook, restaurant, and even shopping center depending on where you decide to stay. That means the celebrations are all around you. On top of that, Las Vegas hotels take COVID health precautions very seriously, meaning you can have your fun while knowing you are in safe hands.

The Walkability

For everything you need, you can walk to it in Vegas. Walking between bars, restaurants, casinos, and any other New Year’s Eve Las Vegas activities is not only easy, it’s fun. From the Fremont Street Experience to the Strip, there is so much to experience by foot. No need to order Ubers or hail a cab. Just be sure you plan your NYE outfit accordingly so your feet aren’t miserable when 2021 kicks off.


The Weather

Las Vegas is one of the best places for New Year’s Eve because of the fairly mild winter weather. With days in the 50s and nights in the 30s at the end of December, you will still need to bundle up, but at least you aren’t snowed in. This weather allows you to spend more time outdoors to enjoy the lights, fireworks, bars, restaurants, and other Vegas attractions instead of needing to spend time indoors. In fact, you can still even enjoy Las Vegas pools in winter here thanks to Circa’s year-round heated pools.


This year has certainly been one for the books. There have been plenty of highs and plenty of lows, and we cannot wait to welcome 2021 with you for New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas as we look forward to the highs of the future! We are still here with our Vegas energy and welcoming arms. Book your stay at the D Las Vegas to be in the heart of all the action.
