Las Vegas New Years Eve 2022

New Years Eve in Las Vegas

New Year's eve is a great time to be in Vegas. Ring out the old and ring in the new, the Las Vegas way. Las Vegas New Year's Eve is always packed on the Vegas strip and don't expect this year to be any different.

The 2020 - 2021 Las Vegas new year's eve celebrations was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With all restrictions lifted in Las Vegas, expect the 2021 New Year's Eve celebrations to draw huge crowds. The entire 4 miles of the Vegas strip, from Russell to Sahara, which covers all hotels from Mandalay Bay at the Strip's southern end to the STRAT Hotel Casino and SkyPod at the north, will be closed down to traffic around 6pm.

On this night, the Vegas Strip becomes a giant pedestrian mall and everyone parties outside till midnight. Tens of thousands of visitors walk the Vegas strip decked out in silly hats, noisemakers and holiday cheer. Las Vegas New Year's Eve 2022 will include a spectacular fireworks show.

It's going to be freezing! Bundle up. It also helps to have a plan 3 or 4 hours before midnight. If you plan to celebrate indoors, remember once it hits 11:00 p.m., majority of the hotels on the Strip stop letting people in.(You will require a room key to access the property). They re-open their doors around 1:00 a.m. (To avoid crazy drunk people I guess). Actually it's their way of keeping the crowds inside the casino within occupancy limits set by Clark county. You don't want to find yourself stuck outside and have to use the bathroom.

If you don't want to spend money on hotel, food and don't like crowds, New Year's is not the time to be in Vegas. People come from all over the world for this holiday and it's as busy as it gets. Sadly everything is really expensive during this time.

Get to the strip early, around 5 or 6 p.m. Earlier if possible because they will close the strip down around 6 p.m.

If you drive, park your car in the hotel garage nearest to where you'll be partying. Most Strip Valet and Self-Park garages are expected to be full by 5:00 pm. Once you park, do the smart thing and take a photo of the garage and floor where you parked, incase you need it later. Remember, you won't be able to leave until well after midnight.

If you're going to a party in a club, enjoy it for all it's worth considering what it will cost to get in. Also be aware you can step outside to watch the New Year's fireworks displays but check with the club first.
