Attend Global New Year's Parties through Webcam Coverage
Sunday, December 15, 2013
Those with small children or with a strong dislike of big crowds can enjoy New Year's parties from all over the world this New Year's eve through web cameras. For those who are unfamiliar with the technology, a webcam is a digital video camera that takes video and audio footage from a location and transmits it through an internet connection. You can then visit the website and pretend that you are there.
1. Myworldwebcams is arguably the most complete list of New Year’s celebrations. Here you will find cameras in a large number of cities, from Kiritimati in Kiribati which welcomes the new year first, to Honolulu in Hawaii that has to wait the longest. It features webcams from cities in all countries, from the largest and wealthiest to the most obscure.
2. Search for New Year on Mylivestreams and enjoy webcams in London, New York, Amsterdam, Paris, Moscow, Dublin, Sydney and Dubai. The cameras are well placed for the main party in each city, such as at the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Times Square and the South Bank on the River Thames. If you have a webcam that you want to stream, you can do it here.
3. If you want to see how Paris welcomes the new year, visit Goandroam you will find webcams all over the city. You can watch the light show at the Eiffel Tower, the street party on the Champs Elysees and fireworks throughout the city via a camera that shows the city skyline.
4. If New York City's Times Square is your thing, Newyears.earthcam offers a large number of cameras on and around the square at street and elevated levels to enjoy the spectacular fireworks display and count down. While Times Square is its New Year's pride, earthcam hosts webcams from other world cities too.
5. If you have never been to Reno in Western Nevada, it is not a city that does things by halves. Its biggest party is the Downtown midnight countdown and 15-minute fireworks display that is launched from four different rooftops and that can be seen from anywhere in the city. You can join at Reno.gov.
Enjoy your New Year's party without the trampling crowds.
