Celebrate San Antonio is one huge New Year's Eve street party with live music, performances, carnival rides, various entertainment, and food.

NYE at the Tower of the Americas

The night at Hemisfair ends with a spectacular fireworks display at midnight. Tower of the Americas, located at Hemisfair, is perhaps the best place to see the fireworks. The 750-ft (230-m) high observation deck of the Tower of the Americas grants a fantastic panorama of the San Antonio skyline. The ticketed party at the Tower of the Americas also features food, dancing, casino games, and live music.

NYE at San Antonio Riverwalk

Another popular destination on New Year's Eve is San Antonio Riverwalk, which looks especially festive with Christmas lights and decorations. So, a stroll down the Riverwalk or a river cruise will be a feast for the eyes.

NYE parties

In addition, many hotels, restaurants, and clubs located on the Riverwalk, like Howl at the Moon, Hotel Valencia, Bier Garten, and On the Bend, host gala events and vibrant parties with DJs, cocktails, and delicious food.

NYE at SeaWorld San Antonio

Another amazing place to usher in the New Year and take in splendid fireworks is SeaWorld San Antonio.
