TRAVEL EXPERT CASSIDY SMITH - CHEAPTICKETS.COM RELEASES THE TOP NEW YEAR'S EVE DESTINATIONS
Kick off 2016 with a big-city celebration by staying just outside of the action
New Year's Eve celebrations are notorious for raking up bills at exclusive parties and high-end hotels in top destinations. But why not kick off 2016 with a budget-friendly New Year's Eve vacation? Big cities can equal big prices, and sometimes thinking outside-the-box can result in big savings without missing out on the fun. Consider staying in neighborhoods and suburbs just outside of the hustle and bustle of this year's top New Year's Eve destinations. Think West of the Strip in Las Vegas, or Kissimmee instead of Orlando. And, staying in Midtown East instead of Times Square in New York City can cut down on crowds and save you over 12% on the cost of your hotel.
