      Oooh, Venice. How I wouldn't mind spending New Year's Eve there. So many of these destinations sound so wonderful, it's been too long since I had a good vacation outside my local area. Having grown up in NYC I can say it's also a pretty awesome place to be for the New Year celebrations. So much to do, not even counting Time Square (which is pretty insane). Great hub, I had fun reading it even though I'll be spending New Year's Eve at home with my family in my PJs eating Chinese take-out, playing cards or putting together puzzles or something as we watch movies.
