Another year has come and gone in the Magic City. And what a year it was. For all that we experienced – the good and the difficult, the loving and hurtful, the growth and the losses – 2021 serves as yet another example of resilience and tenacity. Now, let’s take the time to celebrate all that this past year represented; and more importantly, to anticipate with exuberance and hope what 2022 will bring. This is the time to come together with loved ones and cherished friends to bring in what may be the best year yet. In these exciting celebrations, let Miami be the perfect backdrop for all your New Year’s festivities. To help you ring in the new year, here are the finest NYE events happening in Miami.

New Year’s Eve Fireworks Paddle & Dinner

This is probably the most unique, intimate way to ring in the new year. The festivities will begin around 7 PM at the gorgeous Virginia Key Outdoor Center, situated on the Virginia Key between mainland Miami and Key Biscayne. With live music, food, and drinks, enjoy partying the night away. The most special part will happen at 10:30 PM when you’ll kayak or paddleboard out into Biscayne Bay. From there you’ll enjoy the firework displays on the bay; the shows in Coconut Grove, Key Biscayne, and Fisher Island will combine into one spectacular mega show. If you’re not a fan of the water, you can also observe the fireworks from the shore. Plus desserts will be served at midnight! (Tickets: $125 per person until December 26th, $150 per person until December 30th.)
