3. Chill Zone: NYE Fireworks Celebration at the Ice Rink at Cosmopolitan
For a break from all the insanity, perch yourself above the Strip at the only outdoor ice rink in Vegas. Drink Irish coffee next to the fireplace pits while staring at the 65-foot screen live streaming the Bruno Mars show from inside the casino. The encore? A killer view of the fireworks.
9p-1a. At The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, 3708 Las Vegas Blvd. S., The Strip (702-698-7000). $112 and up here.
