If you want peace and tranquility to define the start of the new year for you, then head over to Santa Fe. It has the perfect weather for some end-of-the-year shopping, as well as some wild weekend spots you can party in. Fond of antiques, museums, and galleries? Santa Fe boasts of vintage shops and indie boutiques.


Please tell me if there’s something better than watching the fireworks over Waikiki Beach and the Aloha Tower Marketplace.
