Family-Friendly New Year's Eve Fun in Houston

While typically considered a holiday largely for adults, ringing in the new year isn't solely for the 18-and-up age group. In fact, Houston has quite a few festivities lined up that allow kids to ring in the New Year with their families in a safe, fun environment, whether it's making a trip down to the Kemah Boardwalk to watch fireworks over the water or heading to the ever-popular Children's Museum of Houston for a kid-approved balloon drop and "Noon" Year countdown.

The fun doesn't end on New Year's, either. Our Guide to Holiday and Christmas Events will carry you through the holiday season this year and our Winter Bucket List is the perfect resource for those days after the holidays when being off of school may start to get a little boring...
