For all the times you worked from home, all the times you self-quarantined instead of catching your favorite actor’s new movie at the theater, and all the trips you had to cancel in 2020, it is now time to start anew. The end of the year is fast approaching, and although we are not out of the woods yet, there is a light at the end of that tunnel. When you feel you can’t stare at the same four walls another evening, a magical New Year’s in St Louis and a stay in one of our JZ Vacation Rentals New Year’s properties is guaranteed to give you a brand new outlook on the brand new year that you are facing!
Take It to the Streets
Sometimes in real life we get so caught up in the mundane chores, we forget that we like to have fun too, and many of our New Year’s Eve celebrations fizzle out before they even begin. But if you’re looking to shake things up a bit during your St. Louis getaway, the streets of St. Louis offer a plethora of ways to greet the new year in spite of the chilly temperatures! Watch St. Genevieve’s La Guignolee singing troupe perform in front of a bonfire at 7 PM as revelers dress in strange costumes and whoop it up. In past years, the singers would literally take it to the streets, as had been done for centuries, but this year’s festivities have been toned down just a bit.
Pub Crawl’s DIY Style
The official New Year’s Eve Pub Crawl for St. Louis doesn’t appear to be taking off this year, but there’s no reason you can’t do a safer and smaller version of the big event! Stop by the Tin Roof for live music and Southern style pub grub or spend the evening sipping your favorite drink while playing vintage arcade games at Start Bar on Spruce Street. Revive the blarney that is deep in your soul with a visit to Nick’s Pub on Manchester Avenue, get swanky at Three Sixty and enjoy the views of the interior of Busch Stadium, or enjoy the youthful vibe offered at the Wheelhouse Downtown. Although you may not be able to hit all these spots in one night, you will sure have fun trying!
Laugh Your Way into 2021 New Year’s in St Louis
There wasn’t a lot of laughter over the last 12 months, so it makes a lot of sense to end the year doing something beneficial to your health; laughing at the antics of the world-class comedians working the mike at Helium Comedy Club! Adam Ferrara will tickle your funny bone with his unique look at the world in his New Year’s Eve Special, and as you sit laughing in the dark with the remains of your meal before you, you will feel the healing begin; reserve your tickets today!
Gather Your Family Close
For those who are ready to travel but are not quite ready to face the crowds, an evening spent indoors gathered close to your family can be the most spectacular way to greet the new year! Pick up some frozen appetizers from the grocery store closest to your vacation escape and pop them in the state of the art stoves found in our fully equipped kitchens. Sipping champagne as the scent of baking deliciousness wafts through the house is guaranteed to perk up your mood, and if you cheat on dinner with a few leftover Christmas cookies, who is going to tell? Light a fire in the fireplace to ward off the chill of the night, spread a blanket over the hardwood floors, and picnic in the dark with only the fire lighting the night. These are the moments when relationships are made stronger, as you discuss the past and then forge on to your hopes, dreams, and wishes for 2021.
Families can spend the evening playing old fashioned board games, some of which could be provided by the owner of your vacation escape, and some of which you picked up during your earlier explorations of St. Louis! Fantasy Shop Maplewood, located at 7329 Manchester Road, offers an amazing selection of wares, ranging from comic books to cards to board games from all generations! And finally, when the ball begins to drop and you find yourself holding on tightly to your most precious gifts, you will know that even though 2020 didn’t turn out the way any of us planned, you are doing the right thing by facing 2021 with the ones you love in beautiful St. Louis!
