Travel site Priceline.com, recently released a ranking of their Top 50 New Year’s Eve Destinations. The rankings are based on total booking requests for the days around New Year’s and the top spots should be no surprise to any experienced partier.
There is definitely a strong U.S. slant to the list. As you would expect, New York, New Orleans and Las Vegas occupy the top 6 spots (they break them out by city section) and every spot in the top 10 is in an American city. You won’t find a non-American destination until Paris at #14.
Here are the top 20 places. You can find the full list of the Top 50 New Year’s Eve Destinations here.
