Want to ring in the New Year in the place where the leaders of our nation met to change the course of history a few centuries ago? The American Heritage RV Park, the highest-rated park in Williamsburg, offers 70 acres of beautiful green meadows and woodlands and nine spectacular golf courses. The park features pull-through sites, full hookups, and is pet friendly. Just 8 miles from historic Williamsburg, this park is a perfect location to set up camp and head out into Virginia’s beautiful Historic Triangle (Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown), where our country’s history was born. Step back in time and walk the streets that our forefathers walked, see costumed interpreters along the streets of Williamsburg, marvel at the historic homes, shops, and public buildings that have been well preserved, and enjoy meals in the same taverns where George Washington and Ben Franklin discussed America’s future. On New Year’s Eve, Williamsburg is the place to be for family fun. First Night Williamsburg, a family-oriented, non-alcoholic celebration, celebrates the performing arts and features the area’s finest professional entertainers, such as singers, instrumentalists, magicians, storytellers, jugglers, clowns, puppeteers, bands, and more. The children’s show runs from 3-7:30PM. Live entertainment runs from 6PM-midnight with a spectacular fireworks display to end the evening.

For a beautiful fireworks display over the Atlantic Ocean, plan to visit Tybee Island, Georgia’s northern-most barrier island. Tybee Island knows how to do the holiday season right, starting in early December. They have a traditional tree lighting ceremony, Lights on for Tybee Celebration, and the annual Tybee Island Christmas Parade the next day to get everyone in the holiday spirit. But on New Year’s Eve, they really light it up! Grab your beach chair or blanket or head to a nearby waterfront restaurant and get ready for a dazzling show that will leave you awe-struck. Shot off from the Walter W. Parker Pier & Pavilion, the fireworks look brilliant reflecting on the water. And if you’re looking for a way to start the New Year off with a bang, register for the annual Tybee Polar Plunge Dress Up and jump into the Atlantic with thousands of your closest friends. For delightful accommodations while camping on the island, set up camp at the River’s End Campground & RV Park on the island. Just 3 blocks from the beach, this full-service campground and RV park offers a variety of sites (primitive, full hookup, preferred full hookup), a pool, gift shop, picnic tables, Laundromat, dump station, and more.
