Best Places to Celebrate the New Year

Slide 7 of 26

Edinburgh, Scotland

Edinburgh’s Hogmanay (or "last day of the year") is such a big New Year’s event that it spans four days. A massive street party in Edinburgh’s city center is only part of the madness. Events include concerts, a Viking-led torchlight procession and the Scottish version of the Polar Plunge—called the Loony Dook—in the freezing Forth Estuary waters.
