With cold, snowy winter weather, it's no surprise more Americans are trying to get somewhere warmer to ring in the New Year.

Hotwire put out its list of the top 10 most popular destinations to welcome 2014.

Orlando, Fla., topped the list. New York, a perennial New Year's Eve favorite comes in at No. 2.

Las Vegas, Chicago and New Orleans round out the top five.

The destinations are based on hotel bookings made on for travel between Dec. 30 and Jan. 2.
