New Years Eve is brewing and if you’re like many Miami residents, you still have no plans.

Partying with friends and family at home is a solid option and it’s certainly more financially friendly than popping bottles at a South Beach nightclub. However, some may still have the itch to go out and there are still options for those who want to do so on the cheap.

The following is a map showing the best free New Year’s Eve events in Miami on Sunday. Props to Miami.com, Miami New Times, and Miami On The Cheap for some inspiration.

Also, thank you readers for making Curbed Miami such a big success in 2017!

Our map of Miami’s best free New Years Eve events is ordered north to south.
