New Year’s Eve is next week already and if you’re looking for a place to celebrate, there’s 5 places in Fort Myers perfect to ring in the new year.

I don’t know where this year has gone. Especially the last few months, they have just flown by for me. Maybe it’s because here in Fort Myers, with the weather unchanging that it’s all a blur when one season runs right into the next. Or maybe life is just busy enough that time goes by in the blink of an eye.

There are so many ways to celebrate the end of one year and the start of a new one. My pup Rocket, is NOT a fan of loud noises. Since I’ve had him, I make sure I’m home at midnight when the fireworks go off. At most, I’ve gone out to dinner on New Year’s Eve. But in recent years, I have people over. We enjoy a good time with food, drinks, games and watching the countdown on TV. It’s always a great time spent with loved ones and a great way to usher in the beginning of a new year.

But maybe you’re looking to get dressed up and hit the town. Champagne toasts, dancing, fireworks..there’s lots of fun to be had. And if you’re looking for a great place to celebrate in Fort Myers, thanks to News-Press, here’s a few you’re destined to have a good time at. For the full list and for celebrations in other SWFL cities, click here. Now all you need to do is show up ready to party.
