Miami, this time of year, is a wonderful place to be. The temperature is pleasant and go to the beach is more than fun. Traditionally, many families already planned to spend New Year in Miami. And the best year’s Eve party in the city is at the Bay Front Park. It is the largest Free party in South Florida and the “Big Orange”! At the park’s south end, this New Year’s Eve icon will slowly ascend the side of the InterContinental Hotel, reaching the top at midnight in conjunction with a grand display of fireworks shot over beautiful Biscayne Bay.
These are the information as per the DDA site:
“Do not miss out – Bayfront Park is the place to be on New Year’s Eve!
