New York City is certainly an exciting place to be on New Year’s Eve, but if you’re looking to escape the crowds and the exorbitant bar and restaurant prices, it’s not too late to book a last minute getaway. Here are some suggestions for a fun-filled New Year’s Eve away from NYC:
Beautiful Bristol Harbour Resort offers guests incredible views of the Finger Lakes, 5-star dining, a world class spa and skiing nearby.
