With average daily December temperatures in the 70s, Miami is a great destination for those dreaming of a balmy ball drop. It's also a mecca for serious party-goers. Beautiful people, club kids and frat boys from around the world flock to South Beach for all-night dance-a-thons like the one held at Mansion, an Ibiza-esque dance palace housed in an old French casino. If your techno days are behind you, seek out Miami's old-world glamour at The Biltmore hotel in Coral Gables, a 1920s Spanish Revivalist resort known for its opulent New Year's Eve gala. Revelers looking for something a bit more family-friendly should head to the Big Orange. Some 250,000 local folks and international visitors watch Miami's tropical rendition of New York's famous ball drop — the 35-foot neon "Big Orange" descends from the InterContinental Miami, with a grand finale of the largest fireworks show south of Times Square at Bayfront Park. There'll also be musical entertainment, family activities and many ethnic foods to savor.
