SA Ranks 25th in Priceline.com "Top 50 New Years' Word Party Spots"

Pretty neat for SA! Although this may be old news (December 2009) I don't think it was ever posted in the forum. We are the only city on the list from Texas and placed ahead of other major cities such as: Seattle, Paris, Toronto, LA, Sydney, Rome, Boston, and Amsterdam

Priceline.com's Top 50 Destinations list is the definitive guide for those who want to find the crowds - or stay away from them on the New Year. To compile the list, priceline.com looked at a sampling of more than 30,000 Name Your Own Price(R) hotel room booking requests made by priceline.com customers for the New Year's holiday. Because the survey is based on actual booking requests, and not on consumer preference polls or votes, priceline.com believes its annual survey is one of the more accurate predictors of New Year's travel trends. Also, by focusing on hotels instead of airline tickets, the priceline.com survey is able to include the travel intentions of consumers who will drive to their destination
