On average, over 300,000 people are on The Strip every December 31 to celebrate the new year. The Strip closes around 6:00 pm and opens back up around 3:00 am. If you are sightseeing elsewhere in Las Vegas, make sure you are back on The Strip before it shuts down so you won’t have a problem getting to your hotel room or suite. Usually the monorail is the only public transportation available, so bring a pair of comfy shoes as you will be walking a lot. Rideshare can drop off those with hotel reservations but will not be able to pick you up during The Strip closure. Keep glass containers of any kind in your hotel room as they are banned beginning at 6:00 pm. Beverages in glass containers will not be available for sale beginning at 6:00pm. Closer to the NYE countdown, hotels will require a room key to access the property, so keep your room key with you at all times.
