You won't have to travel far to find one of the best cities to celebrate the arrival of 2018.

Christmas is less than two weeks away, which also means that 2018 will be here in less than three. How? I'm not sure. Time has certainly flown by, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't excited to start a new year with a clean slate.

Now, where should we celebrate?

WalletHub has set out to answer that question for us. They took a look at the "Best Places for New Year's Eve" and compiled their findings in a list from best to worst. Aside from fun activities, they factored everything in like weather forecasts, the legality of fireworks and even the average price of a party ticket. With all of that in mind, New York City still reigns supreme, with Orlando, Atlanta, Los Angeles and San Francisco rounding out the top five.

However, there are some great cities to celebrate in the Ark-La-Tex.

For instance, Dallas ranked number 12 on the list, with a few other metroplex areas receiving recognition. Dallas-Fort Worth may be worth the trip. New Orleans came in at number 14 on the list, followed by Austin at number 15.

What are your plans for New Years Eve?
