New Year's Events on the Space Coast

Where will you be this New Year’s Eve? When the ball drops at the strike of midnight, pop the confetti at one of the many New Year’s events on Florida’s Space Coast and kick off 2017! Spending New Year’s Eve on the Space Coast doesn’t have to stop at one of these parties either. Make it a weekend one to remember by planning a weekend getaway for two, with the family or with friends. From oceanfront happy hours and long walks on the beach to sunrises on the shore, Florida’s Space Coast creates the perfect backdrop to your New Year’s weekend getaway.
