    A new report ranks the top 100 cities in the country to celebrate New Year's Eve and not surprisingly, New York City, comes out on top of the list.

    The list, put together by personal finance site WalletHub, ranks the Big Apple tops for the entertainment and food options but way down at number 99 for cost.  If you're looking for a fun but more affordable option, the site recommends Orlando or Atlanta.

    The 100 cities surveyed were ranked based on 25 key indicators ranging from the legality of fireworks to the weather forecast on Dec. 31.  Other factors included the average price of a New Year's Eve party ticket, local wine prices, and hotel room costs.
