3, 2, 1, Happy New Year! 12.29.10

There are just a few days until new Year's Eve, which is always a popular time to travel and celebrate. And guess what? It's not too late to make plans for this weekend. Ideally, you would have made your plans far in advance, but as long as you can click the buy button and pack a bag, you can can be in a party mood on Friday, so get your fancy duds out and get ready to do something fun to ring in the new year.

What do you love best about New Year celebrations? Do you like to have a quiet night watching New Years Rockin' Eve or do you want to go out dancing until midnight and countdown with a bunch of other party-goers? There are different ideas for any kind of bash you have in mind.
