1. Edinburgh’s Hogmanay
Edinburgh’s three-day Hogmanay Festival is considered one of the Best Places to Celebrate New Year’s Eve in the world. So this is one of the 10 best places to celebrate New Year’s Eve. It was even featured on the Discovery Channel’s Top 25 World Travel Experiences. The festival starts with a Torchlight Procession on Dec. 30, which is expected to include 30,000 people walking through the Scottish town. The fun continues with concerts, street parties, and an old-fashioned Old Town Ceilidh. Bring your kilt and try to break the world record for the largest Strip the Willow dance. Some of the events are already sold out, like the New Year’s Day dip in the freezing River Forth.
