Meanwhile, one of the top five places in the nation to spend New Year's Eve is in the Crescent City. In a Facebook survey done by the Weather Channel, fans said New Orleans, Disneyworld, Las Vegas, New York City or Savannah, Georgia, would be their destination choice if they could go anywhere in the U.S. for New Year's Eve. The New Orleans' celebration includes a fireworks display over the Mississippi River and the drop of Baby New Year from atop Jax Brewery.
