New Year's Eve is a time that everyone likes to get out and celebrate!

The good news is there is no shortage of fun going on across the Northland on December 31st. In fact, there are so many amazing places to ring in the holiday that it might be hard to decide just where you want to spend your last moments of 2018.

I did a little research on parties across the area and came up with a list of 7 places you can ring in the big day across Duluth and Superior.

By the way - don't forget that the Duluth Transit Authority is offering FREE rides on the 31st beginning at 5 p.m. and continuing through the early hours of January 1st. This covers Duluth and Superior.

It is very important to make sure you have a sober ride home on New Year's so that nobody is getting behind the wheel.

Once your sober ride is squared away, you can have some fun at one of the 8 awesome parties listed below.

    New Year's By The Lake

    A bunch of venues are better than one! Celebrate New Year's across downtown Duluth at a party described as an "extravaganza that hasn't been seen in decades." This party takes places across four different venues with great food and of course, an amazing view of the lake. The cool thing is a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Bluebird Foundation, which gives scholarships to kids majoring in the arts. Tickets range from $25 bucks to $109 dollars.
