New Year's Eve is a night that's meant to be memorable, and you can't ask for a more unique and photogenic spot than Niagara Falls USA to greet the new year. Whether your style is a low-key romantic dinner for two or a big bash where you can party with pals all night, there is something for everyone in Niagara Falls for New Year's Eve!

A Family-Friendly End to 2019

For families seeking out kid-friendly activities (maybe before the more adult fun begins later in the night) head to Old Falls Street USA where kids of all ages can enjoy giant inflatables, stilt walking, juggling, magic, a social media photobooth, the Balloon Brothers and a DJ spinning tunes! For those who hang out till the end at 10 p.m., you can enjoy a festive balloon drop. If you bust out early, head for a family-friendly dinner that's still gourmet enough for the adults at the Griffon Gastropub. Call ahead for reservations!

A Lucky New Year’s Eve

Looking to try your luck as the ball drops? Head to the Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino, where you can mix gambling with plenty of cocktails and fun throughout the casino. Choose from dining on Asian fusion and delicious sushi at Koi or fine Italian dining at La Cascata. If you don't want to go far at the end of the night, consider spending the weekend at Sheraton Niagara Falls, which is connected to the casino by an underground tunnel — you can wear your favorite sparkly dress without having to worry about a coat for outdoors!

Relax and Ring in the New Year

Stay in luxury nearby at The Giacomo hotel, where you can choose from beautifully decorated rooms — or suites if you're going with a group. Unwind at the end of the night in the hotel's lounge on the first floor, where they host musical performances and happy hours throughout the weekend. Did we mention the chocolates in each room and cookie delivery at turndown every night? Pretty sweet.

A Foodie Not Be Forgot

A romantic dinner hits the spot for a lot of couples on New Year's Eve. Head to Remington Tavern & Seafood Exchange Choose from a selection of steaks, seafood or shucked to order fresh raw oysters or clams. And of course, plenty of champagne for toasting! For an ultimate romantic long weekend, book yourself into the Red Coach Inn. Enjoy fine dining for an affordable price next to a roaring fire in a historic hotel that originally opened in 1923. Spend your evening dining leisurely on a gourmet meal from Webster's Bistro & Bar, with an array of deliciously hearty choices in a cozy and friendly environment.

The Perfect Midnight Kiss

And of course, let's talk about getting the perfect backdrop for that midnight kiss. The Falls themselves will be illuminated from 4:30 p.m. to 2 a.m. on New Year's Eve, which is a spectacular sight. And there will be fireworks over the Falls at 9 p.m. and midnight. Bundle up and watch the fireworks from Niagara Falls State Park for a full view of the display over all three Falls visible from the park.
