For excitement, music, and crowd-loving travelers, Jackson Square is the only place to be. It's located in the middle of Jax Brewery Shopping Mall and the French Market on Decatur Street. The New Year’s countdown features the fleur-de-lis symbol descending from a pole followed by a splendid fireworks display.
This lush waterfront park is located along the Mississippi River. It gives a clear and romantic vantage point to view the fireworks during New Year’s Eve. It closes right after the fireworks but is within easy reach of all the nearby NYE after parties.
Heading out to Algiers Point at New Year's Eve allows you to view the fireworks set against New Orleans’s stunning skyline. The ambiance from this side is more laid back and tranquil. It's located at 101 Morgan St., not far from many New Orleans hotels for New Year's Eve.
