Forget the party: Plan a relaxing New Year’s Eve vacation
By Aimee Heckel
You could follow the flashing lights and loud music this New Year’s Eve — or you could kick off the new year a little differently.
After all, don’t they say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result?
If you want to make 2014 different, start it off with a relaxing New Year’s Eve vacation, instead of burning the midnight oil.
Here are three relaxing, quiet, peaceful inspirations for a New Year’s Eve vacation.
1. Attend the New Year’s Eve Concert for Peace in Manhattan. This celebration of light and song will be at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, features classic music, a choir and orchestra and more. There are a limited number of free tickets, or you can get reserved seats starting at $30 and going up.

3. Create your own spa night — at home, or nearby. Rent a cabin the mountains or a room at a bed and breakfast nearby. Take an Epsom salt bath and exchange massages with your loved one. Paint your nails, give yourself a deep conditioning hair treatment, light candles and relax in the hot tub as the ball drops.
If you don’t want to start 2014 with a hangover, you can always share in a pot of apple spice tea or pour some bubbly grape juice. Surprise your loved one with a sweet letter at midnight of what you are thankful for in 2013 and everything you are looking forward to in 2014.
