Where better to celebrate New Year’s Eve than in the ultimate party city, New Orleans? The setting for my upcoming novel, Crescent City Lies, NOLA is the ideal city to ring in 2017.
The Audubon Zoo and the Louisiana Children’s Museum hold events for the entire family. The Allstate Sugar Bowl New Year’s Eve Parade, which proceeds through the French Quarter is fun for all. You can also enjoy the festivities from the deck of a riverboat or a balcony in the French Quarter, or at one of the many fabulous restaurants scattered across the city
My favorite way to welcome the New Year is the celebration in Jackson Square. An annual tradition with music, the traditional fleur-de-lis drop, and spectacular fireworks show called Symphony in the Sky, the heart of the French Quarter is the place to welcome 2017.
