If you’re avoiding the Strip and the crowds, and are still awake at midnight, here are a few great places around the valley to watch the fireworks displays that will launch from 8 resorts on December 31. 

Fox Hill Park 

Desert Breeze Park
or anywhere along Durango between Flamingo and Spring Mountain. 

Majestic Park 

Exploration Peak Park
The peak is a great place to watch fireworks across the valley.

Parking garages
If you want to brave the airport, the top level of the parking garage there is a great place. 

Also, the top level of the parking garage at Orleans Casino has a great view, but it depends on where you park.
