According to the website, Branson, Missouri is one of the Places to Go for New Years. Branson makes the list of 14 cities with places like New York City, San Diego, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas, but what about Branson makes it a New Year's Eve destination? On the site they say...

"Several luxurious resorts and hotels offer flamboyant New Year’s Eve bashes to get the party started, including the Chateau on the Lake, Big Cedar Lodge, and the Hilton Branson Convention Center...Another one of the best places to spend New Year's in USA is aboard the Showboat Branson Belle New Year’s Eve Cruise on Table Rock Lake. Additionally, the Wonderland New Year’s Eve Party at Big Cedar Lodge is a top choice for the kiddos."

The site also mentions how Branson has top-notch shows during the New Year's Eve celebration time, and of course a ton of natural beauty in the Ozarks.

For our readers on the Illinois side of the river, the site does list Chicago as one of the best places for New Year's Eve as well. They mention how Chicago has a ton of amazing places along (and on) the lake to see their massive fireworks display. To read more about Chicago and Branson's NYE celebrations click here!
