We are just a few weeks out from the New Year. 2018 is upon us!

New Year's Eve is one of the biggest nights of the year to go out on the town and celebrate. With so many options, it can be hard to figure out what to do or where to go.

Do you want a low-key night or do you want to ring in the New Year like never before? Thankfully, the Twin Ports has parties for just about everyone, no matter which you prefer!

Here are 5 of the best places in the Twin Ports to ring in New Year's Eve.

P.S. - don't forget to have a safe and sober ride planned.

    Dubh Linn Irish Brew Pub New Year's Eve Bash

    Do you want to get an early start on ringing in 2018? This is perfect for you! The party starts at 6, which is one of the earliest in the Twin Ports. The bash is semi-formal so you don't have to dress to the nines but can still get spruced up a little bit. Stuff your belly with a three-course meal made from scratch then work it all off on the dance floor. There's a DJ and dueling pianos. This party is a winner because it's fun and easy and has something everyone will enjoy.

    New Year's Eve Party At The Depot

    This party will take over the whole venue which means lots of space for activities! Start the night with a happy hour at 8 as you're serenaded by the Lake City Smoking Section and DJ Ron. Food will be provided too. Noisemakers, hats and beads are all provided upon your arrival along with a champagne flute for when the clock strikes midnight. This party is perfect for those who want to have fun but also keep it some-what low key. The venue itself is also amazing - enough said.

    Behind The Mask: A New Year's Eve Gala

    This party is special because you can give back WHILE having fun! Plus, who doesn't dream of going to a masquerade party at least once? The Center Against Sexual and Domestic Abuse is throwing the party complete with a silent auction, wine toss (an intriguing idea), light food, signature drinks, games, prizes, live music and more. They also provide discounted hotel rooms. Why not roll into 2018 giving back?

    Want to take it easy this New Year's Eve? This is the party for you. At the low-key bash, you can enjoy live music from G.B. Leighton and Whiskey Trail while you enjoy a special dinner, drinks and dessert. Silos Restaurant has arguably the best view in all of the Twin Ports.

    If you want a big party, this is probably the place for you. The party is marketed as an "all night / all morning" thing. Expect great drink specials, free champagne for when the clock strikes 12, a live DJ and free breakfast. A free shuttle is provided too. This party doesn't shut down when 2018 rolls around - that is when it is just getting started. You don't have to buy tickets beforehand but you will want to get some sleep!
