Avoid the Madness: New Year’s Eve options dodging the Strip

In recent years, Las Vegas has become one of the top New Year’s Eve destinations in the world, attracting hundreds of thousands over the holiday.

That’s great for the economy but not so great for locals who want to enjoy a Vegas new year without having to brave those crowds on the Strip. Luckily, there are several options for ringing in 2011 that don’t involve the Strip or partying tourists.

Try your hand at New Year’s Eve bingo at Gold Coast or check out the Society of Seven at the Cannery. Lake Las Vegas is throwing a New Year’s Eve party, complete with fireworks.
