BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The clock is ticking on 2014. Are your New Year’s Eve plans in place? If not, we have some fun ideas for families, young adults and visitors.

Gigi Barnett has more.

When the Baltimore night sky fills up with lights come 2015, where will you be? Many revelers head for the Inner Harbor.

But if your bedtime is long before the stroke of midnight and you just happen to be a kid, the best place to head is the Science Center. Its celebration kicks off at noon.

“We’ll countdown with the band Milkshake. Lots of fun activities during the day: noise makers, party hats, snow globes. So, it’s going to be a lot of fun,” said Molly Melendez, Science Center’s promotions coordination.

Looking to steer clear of the large crowds down at the Inner Harbor? Nobles Bar and Grill might be the place to ring in 2015. The six hour all-you-can-eat-and-drink bash is hosted by Bmore Around Town, a local sports advertising company. It draws young adults from all walks of life.

“You’ll have people that will put on a suit and come out and have a fancy night out. And then you’ll have people who’ll just throw on jeans and a nice shirt and have a casual night out. So really, whatever you’re looking for, we have,” said Chris Caldwell, Bmore Around Town.

And when all of the revelry is over and celebrating 2015 on the first day of the year is really your thing, then the Four Seasons beckons. It’s hosting a New Year’s Day brunch at Wit and Wisdom Tavern. It’s sure to keep visitors in town and extend staycations.

“It will be a little bit more toned down. No DJ, the champagne flowing. But there will be some mimosas and Bloody Marys, definitely. We’ll have a live band going on,” said Jose Gonzalez, general manager of Wit and Wisdom.

Experts say there’s another idea that’s a different twist on the parties. Look for music concerts and dinner specials that start early and end early, leaving you plenty of time to spend a quiet evening at home on the last night of 2014.

If you feel like staying in, we will cover the New Year’s Eve Spectacular, starting at 11 p.m.
