MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Where do you want to be when 2009 rolls out and 2010 rolls in? If the website is any indication, you're close to one of the world's best places: Huntsville.

Huntsville, according to the site that bills itself as the world's leading hotel meta-search engine, beats out New York City, London and even Rio de Janeiro on the top ten list!

The site bills Huntsville's Marriot "Blue Moon Ball" as one of the best ways to ring in the new year with its continental breakfast with champagne at midnight.

Some assume the list is a spoof asking how Huntsville's celebrations could possibly beat out the events of Times Square or Las Vegas' huge fireworks displays.

The site names Waikoloa, Hawaii as the number one spot to be on Dec. 31.
