Looking to rub elbows next to a Hollywood star or two on New Year's Eve? Well, you're in luck. Stars like Eva Longoria Parker, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, and Lady Gaga will be ringing in the new decade at hotspots from coast to coast.

In New York City, celebrity friendly club Avenue is a good bet for star-gazing – and it's just minutes from where Jennifer Lopez and Chris Daughtry will be performing and hanging out with Ryan Seacrest at Times Square as part of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.

In Los Angeles, Adam Lambert will perform at Gridlock’s annual New Year’s Eve bash, hosted by Pamela Anderson.

Meanwhile Sin City will have no shortage of celebrity revelers, including busy parents Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, who will take a mini-break from the kids to celebrate at LAVO Las Vegas.

For those hoping to ring in the New Year in the Miami heat, you have your choice of doing so with Lady Gaga, who is set to perform poolside at Fontainebleau, or with 90210’s AnnaLynne McCord, who is hosting a New Year's Eve celebration at the W South Beach.
