Celebrating the New Year is different for everyone. There are those who just like to stay in and do nothing, others who just go out with friends, and then there are those who like to do it up right, with a fancy party or celebration. Well, if you’re in the ladder, it seems there are some cities where you’re bound to have a better time than others.
