Luckily, there are a handful of fantastic family-friendly New Year’s Eve celebrations that will entertain both you and the kids. Here are some of the most anticipated parties of the season, with spacious and affordable accommodations to match! Who says New Year’s Eve with kids has to be dull?
Head out west to Carlsbad, California for a fun LEGO-themed party! LEGOs are certainly ideal for kids and adults alike, and everyone will have a great time at this celebration. Live, kid-friendly bands play all day long, fireworks light up the sky, and a LEGO brick drops 22 feet from the sky to signify the “New Year.” Fortunately, LEGOLAND’s New Year is at the kid-friendly time of 6 PM! This leaves plenty of time for you to enjoy a family dinner and turn in early.
Carlsbad timeshare rentals offer swimming pools and spacious suites with multiple bedrooms. This way, you can tuck the kids in and enjoy a glass of champagne in the living area while ringing in 2017 with your spouse.
First Night is an affordable and fun way to spend New Year’s Eve with the family in New England.

One flat fee gets you into more than 30 venues and allows you to participate in all the activities. See theater, dancing, movies, ice sculptures, and more. If you wish to stay until midnight, you can enjoy fireworks over the Boston Harbor. If not, you are certainly able to pack in more than enough fun in a full day in the city.

What’s more fun than a sparkling ball dropping in NYC? How about a beachside ball drop at Panama City Beach? This event takes 800-pounds worth of colorful beach balls that glide 100 feet from the sky to ring in the New Year. Come early to enjoy the carnival complete with bouncy houses and street performers. There is also an earlier 8:00 PM beach ball drop so that you can get the kids to bed at a reasonable hour.

If you have very young kids, the Louisiana Children’s Museum provides the perfect environment to celebrate the New Year. Located in the vibrant New Orleans, you can veer off of the loud partying on Bourbon Street and find yourself in a child’s dream land.
