New Year's Eve, SoFla Style

Whether you're celebrating in Broward or Dade, here's where to get your countdown on

New Year's Eve is right around the corner and if you still don't know what to do or where to go yet, here are a few suggestions:

In Miami-Dade County:

The City of Miami Beach is closing down Ocean Drive to give patrons full access to stores and restaurants. Fireworks will be set off at midnight at 8th and Ocean. The event, which is free and open to the public, will include music, dancing and dining.

Head to Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami for the annual big orange drop and countdown to midnight. A disco dance party will kick the night off at 8 P.M. The event is free and open to the public.

Head over to Haulover Beach for one of the most unusual New Years celebrations in the country: Nude Year's Eve is a clothing optional event where most partygoers will opt for their birthday suits.

In Broward County:

The Broward Center for Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale is featuring the off-broadway comedy hit "Defending the Caveman" at 8:30 P.M. and the Tony-winning musical "Phantom of the Opera" at 7 P.M. Tickets range from $25-$72.

If you're looking to spice up your night, try Athena By the Sea in Lauderdale By The Sea. The restaurant will be holding a "Big Fat Greek New Year" celebration. The fun begins at 9 P.M. You'll get dinner, one bottle of champagne, party favors, and entertainment. RSVP for your spot. Tickets start at $75.
