New Year’s Eve is days away and people across the Central Coast are getting ready to wrap up 2018.

From staying in or going out people have different ideas of how they want to spend their final night of the year.

“Well we don’t have any plans right now, at all, and we’ll probably just keep it that way,” Paso Robles resident Amanda Brown says.

She says some years they don’t even stay up until midnight.

Michelle Erata lives in Paso Robles and Nicole Huffman lives in San Luis Obispo. They both don’t have plans now but Huffman says she does want to plan something.

“I wanted to go do something fun like go to a rooftop bar except we only have one rooftop bar in the area and they’re doing singles meet up and I don’t want to be there,” Huffman says.

Another Central Coast resident Sarah Clark is partaking in a New Years tradition, going camping with her friends and family in Santa Barbara.

According to Wallethub 24-percent of Americans plan to celebrate New Year’s Eve at home this year. The personal finance company says 83 percent of Americans will spend less than $200 on ringing in the New Year.

About 15 percent of Americans plan on going to a public event or parties and three percent don’t plan on celebrating at all.
