Chicago New Years celebrations and running away.

I'm looking for two answers for the story I'm planning for NaNo (I've suddenly become all inspired, I don't want to lose momentum so early on).

First off, what kind of celebrations would Chicago have had for New Years in 1959, going into 1960? I found this, but I'm not sure whether they had this kind display in the 50s, or if maybe there was something special to see the new decade in?

Secondly, if a young American couple in 1959 who were frustrated by the lack of women's/civil rights were going to run away, which country would have seen like a good option at the time? I really didn't know what to search, since it's so subjective.

Thanks!
