From north to south and east to west, America boasts some of the best cities for nightlife and partying in the whole world. Whether you are looking to eat at a world-class restaurant, relax with some cocktails or hit up a club, there is no shortage of options. Though I could write thousands and thousands of words about the cities which come to life after the sun goes down, here we will just focus on five of the main ones you could visit for yourself.
They don’t call it the city that never sleeps for nothing! In terms of the variety of nightlife options available, you would struggle to find anywhere better than the Big Apple. You could take in one of the shows on Broadway, eat some delicious food from basically any type of cuisine in the world, and head out on a huge bar crawl afterwards. You could live here for years and still be surprised and amazed by something new every single day. What’s your favorite part of New York City?
During the day, Miami Beach is a beautiful stretch of sand where you can relax, take part in some water sports, and even look for a yacht to rent in Miami. But when the sun goes down, the area becomes a packed nightlife scene with booming clubs and luxurious hotel lounges. Many of the country’s rich and famous come here to let their hair down, and as you can imagine, things can quickly get pretty expensive! Where is your favorite beach?
There is nowhere else like New Orleans in the whole of the country – and it’s a city equally fun to explore during the day and at night. I graduated with my Master’s in Nursing in New Orleans and loved exploring the city! The French Quarter should be your first stopping point – the food alone is amazing. Bourbon Street is wildly alive with bars, music, and street life, though there are plenty of other lively parts of the city in which you can party. The biggest event of the year is the world famous Mardi Gras which is a spectacle to behold! Have you been? We ate at Vincent’s, a local Italian spot. SENSATIONAL yall!
Nashville is on my list of places to visit. I’ve heard SO many amazing things about this city! Fans of country music will be at home here almost instantly, but this is not the only musical genre to enjoy on a trip to Nashville. More and more live venues are springing up all over the city. If you want to sing until the early hours of the morning, this is certainly the place to go! I’m just itching to go to the Grand Ole Opry! Do you have any favorite country music artists?
Finally, we come to arguably the most famous party city in the whole wide world. Las Vegas needs no introduction, but most of its revelry centers around the decadent and glamorous hotels/casinos situated along the main strip. If you feel like you have seen every one of them, another great area for nightlife is Fremont Street, where you will be greeted by a neon-lit oasis of activity. I’ve been going to Vegas with my family (for business) since I was old enough to walk. We all celebrated my 21st birthday out there! Yes.. this is 21 year old me and my adorb parents (hilarious).
No trip to any one of these cities would be complete without taking in the nightlife, and you are bound to come away with plenty of memories – some which may be hazier than others!
