Las Vegas New Year's Eve
While New Year’s Eve celebrations will look very different from years past, Las Vegas will still bring the excitement to say hello to 2021 in style. From socially distanced entertainment, intimate lounge festivities and amazing dining options, Vegas lets you bid 2020 adieu – and good riddance – in the most amazing way possible.
Guests will be dazzled when the clock strikes midnight as these intimate parties take place up and down the Strip.
The LINQ Hotel is offering two incredible ways to celebrate on the Strip as 2020 ends. One of the world’s tallest observation wheels, The High Roller, is offering a NYE toast including a 30-minute revolution plus a glass of champagne. Or choose to travel 1,121 feet over The LINQ Promenade on the Fly LINQ Zipline, the first and only zipline by the Strip.
SAHARA Las Vegas will toast the end of 2020 and welcome the new year ahead with an evening of indulgence with bottomless premium champagne, cocktails and spirits, plus an all-you-can-eat assortment of decadent desserts and a midnight champagne toast!

One person will be selected to jump from the iconic casino’s 829-foot SkyJump attraction at the stroke of midnight on Dec. 31. The selected winner will also receive an exclusive, celebratory experience to share with three guests on New Year’s Eve.
