Celebrating New Year's Eve Twice in One Night!
10, 9, 8… The moon shimmers over the water make the perfect backdrop as the countdown begins in Port St. Joe, Florida. 7, 6, 5… Your friends hoist glasses of champagne and wear grins as wide as the expanse of white-sand beach that connects the charming fishing towns of Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast. 4, 3, 2, 1… Cheers erupt as the New Year arrives, and the well wishes and resolutions last well into the next hour—until it’s time to start the countdown all over again just a few miles down the road in Mexico Beach! The neighboring coastal villages of Mexico Beach and Port St. Joe, Florida, have a unique, fun, and safe event to kick off 2015. Celebrate Twice features 13 bars and restaurants throughout the two towns and a free trolley system that makes regular stops at each one, giving guests the opportunity to celebrate the countdown to 2015 in the Eastern time zone in Port St. Joe, then take a short ride over to Mexico Beach in the Central time zone and do it all again—without worrying about who will be the designated driver. Visitors staying in Mexico Beach can hop on the trolley at any six stops and have a worry-free night! The trollies run from 8:00 p.m.–3:00 a.m. EST (7:00 p.m.–2:00 a.m. CST). They also have fireworks on the beach in Port St. Joe at 10:00 p.m. EST and in Mexico Beach at midnight, CST. Learn more at and visit to plan your trip!
