Government-run locations, such as the Department of Motor Vehicles and public libraries, are most likely going to be closed.

The U.S. Postal Service will not deliver mail Wednesday, and U.S. post offices are closed as well. FedEx and UPS will also be closed.

Banks are generally closed, although ATMs are always available.

If you plan to visit a museum, call to make sure they aren’t closed. Not every museum is open on New Year’s Day.
