New York City is the hot place to be for New Year's Eve. But you can celebrate New Year's for a whole lot cheaper and a lot closer to home and have an incredible experience. Minneapolis was ranked as one of the best places to celebrate New Year's in the entire country by WalletHub!

Here's how WalletHub determined the rankings:

WalletHub compared the 100 biggest cities based on 28 key indicators of an epic New Year’s Eve celebration. Our data set ranges from legality of fireworks to average price of a New Year’s Eve party ticket to forecasted precipitation for Dec. 31.

Minneapolis came in as the 19th best city to celebrate. St. Paul is quite a bit lower on the list at 58. And unfortunately, Rochester was not included in this list. Beating Minneapolis out at number 18 is Birmingham, AL and right behind us at 20 is Louisville, KY.
