New Year's Eve 2012

Hi--My husband and I are visiting Miami over New Year's, staying in the Dadeland Mall area. I am looking into the Metrorail so we can get to/from downtown Miami safely.

Does anyone have any recommendations for parties or places to go to celebrate New Year's Eve for a couple of 30-somethings? I'm not even sure where to begin my search or if there are any online newspapers or listings that would help me find this info. We're open to pretty much anything, though we aren't concerned about the trendiness factor.

If worse comes to worse, we'll celebrate at midnight on the beach, and that would by far not be the worst thing I could imagine. :)

Thanks for any help and suggestions!

Downtown Miami has no beach but getting there and back from Dadeland is pretty easy if you have no car...

Hop on the train to Downtown and transfer to the metromover if you want to attend the fireworks celebration at Bayfront Park. If you're up for a nice dinner, check prices (and see where there are still reservations available via opentable.com) at Tuyo, Zuma, Area 31, db Bistro Moderne, or Capital Grill.

Al of these places are close enough to walk & then get back to see the fireworks in the park...

Fireworks go off at midnight and you can move on to the all night honky tonk Tobacco Road or you can retrace your route quickly back to Dadeland or jump into a taxi home!

Have fun!
