Most Sinful New Year's Eve Getaways
Envy: Malibu, CA
Why It’s Sinful: Hollywood gossip is a favorite pastime of Americans, and at the heart of it is pure envy for celebrities’ looks, fame, and money. The big stars set up camp in Malibu, a dazzling seaside community with 21 miles of deep beaches. On December 31, book a table at the scene-y Geoffrey’s, where you can watch the who’s who of Hollywood flash their diamonds.
Where to Stay: Co-owned by David Geffen and Larry Ellison, the Malibu Beach Inn is a low-key, stylish oceanfront hotel. Private balconies in every room look out on to Billionaire’s Beach.
How to Atone: Stalk good times instead of stars at Disneyland in Anaheim—you’ll feel like a kid again.
