Las Vegas is the place to be for New Years-Las Vegas Tops Poll as Favorite City to Ring in 2010

No surprise to those of us who live here. 

Last year the fireworks sucked here in Vegas because they took them off the hotel and casino rooftops. Everyone complained and the powers that be woke up.

Well, this year they should be back to normal as our Mayor Oscar Goodman and everyone agreed they are going back on the rooftops this year.

You don't even have to be on the strip to see them and sometimes you may even getting a better view of the overall fireworks being just a bit off the strip.

Well, no matter where you are at this year--Have a Happy New Year everyone!

According to those polled, respondents would rather spend time in Las Vegas on New Year's than other traditional New Year's Eve destinations. In fact, Las Vegas (35%) beat out New York City (30%), Miami (19%), Los Angeles (9%) and Chicago (7%) as respondents' favorite New Year's Eve destination. Possible reasons for this result include the A-list entertainment at the city's top clubs and shows, the massive party on a pedestrian-only Strip with fireworks lighting up the sky at midnight, and the availability of incredible deals that Las Vegas has to offer this year.

Las Vegas is the preferred New Year's Eve destination among a variety of travelers this year
-With its many different offerings, Las Vegas is not only the preference for the general group of respondents (35%), but also amongst a wide range of sub-groups.
-41% of men chose Las Vegas as the spot for New Year's celebrations, which isn't a surprise considering all the great action that awaits at upscale sports books and table gaming rooms. On the other hand, women are virtually split between Las Vegas and NYC as the place they'd want to be.
-In addition, more than 36% of respondents 51+ years-old, 32% aged 31-40 and respondents with incomes between $35,000 and $99,000 plan to count down to midnight in Las Vegas. These results are a good testament to the wide appeal Las Vegas has created for itself through its diverse entertainment options and varying price points.
