Top 5 / North America


New Year’s Eve celebrations happen worldwide and now is the time to plan where you will spend your evening as the clock strikes midnight. Here are the top places in the United States in which you should consider counting down the clock.


New York City

The famed Big Apple is viewed on televisions around the world. Why not try to get in on the action this year? Be prepared though — once you get into Times Square you cannot get out until the end of the night unless you want to lose your spot.


New Orleans

As one of the biggest party destinations all year-round, New Orleans will not disappoint for New Year’s. The warmer climates make celebrating more enjoyable with a drink in hand and fireworks over the Mississippi River.


Las Vegas

More than 300,000 people travel to Las Vegas for a huge party in the streets. The Las Vegas Strip is shut down to allow pedestrians to enjoy the choreographed firework display by all of the casinos.



Disney is a great spot to welcome in the New Year. Eat and drink from around the world in Epcot and then end the night with a spectacular fireworks display in Magic Kingdom.


Los Angeles

Have a glamorous evening in Los Angeles. With so many clubs, restaurants and lounges to choose from, your night will be anything but boring.

Barner 2.0 Computer Glasses

Hours spent staring at itineraries or looking through online guidebooks can wreak havoc on your eyes. It’s important to take steps to care for your vision — travel won’t be quite as fun if you can’t take in the sights! That’s why the Barner 2.0 Computer Glasses are a great piece of gear for travelers.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

How to Get From the Airport to Marrakech

The mystifying city of Marrakech, Morocco, is a delight to the traveler’s senses. As a fast-growing tourist destination, the largest city in Morocco welcomed a record-breaking 2 million visitors in 2017. Marrakech’s Medina dates to the 10th century when it was a Berber walled city, and its souks sell everything from fabrics to carpets to household goods, for negotiable prices.
