Despite the traditional image of revellers welcoming in the New Year in Times Square as the ball drops, more Americans are plumping for the bright lights and casino glamour of Las Vegas for their end of year celebrations.
This is according to the latest poll from Travelocity, which shows the top ten New Year’s Eve destinations. New York made it to second in the list, ahead of Cancun, Orlando and Chicago, which complete the top five.
Elsewhere, Los Angeles is falling out of favour, dropping from third to sixth this year, while San Diego made a comeback to the top ten for the first time in recent years.
Genevieve Shaw Brown, Travelocity's senior editor, said: "Travellers who booked their New Year's Eve trips as vacation packages are ahead of the curve. This money-saving tactic is definitely a trend in travel for the coming year."
