New Year's Eve is a time to close out the year and usher in a new year. Annually, cities around the world ring in the new year in style and Detroit, the largest city in Michigan, is no exception. The Motor City offers parties and activities to fit a variety of budgets on New Year's Eve.

  1. Fun Run/Walk

    • For more than 40 years, the Belle Isle New Year's Eve Family Fun Run/Walk has been a New Year's Eve tradition in Detroit. Run/Walk categories to participate in include a children's one mile run for youngsters 12 and under, a one mile run that anyone may participate in, and a four mile run/walk that also is open to anyone. All races start and end in front of the Belle Isle Casino. Youngsters who participate in the one mile run will earn a trophy upon completion of the race. The first three males and females to reach the finish line in the four mile run will score gift certificates.

    River Cruise

    • Spend New Year's Eve cruising the Detroit River. For more than five years, the Detroit Princess Riverboat, a refurbished gambling ship that can accommodate 1,500, has been offering New Year's Eve boat cruises. Ticket prices include a buffet dinner consisting of prime rib, chicken, salmon, and pork chops. On the cruise, travelers can enjoy a champagne toast to ring in the new year and music and dancing all night long. All dining levels of the riverboat are equipped with top liquor, wine, and imported and domestic beers.
