Adults, Stop Bogarting New Year’s | 5 Destinations to Share With Your Kids

Grump boy and title "Adults, Stop Bogarting New Years"

From burning scarecrows to sleeping in cemeteries, dropping colossal peaches to breaking dishes, humans have developed a spectrum of odd rituals to welcome in the New Year. In my early twenties, New Year’s Eve was a late-night celebration at electronic dance parties. As a mother in my thirties, I’m just trying to figure out how to keep my kid up past 9:00, so that we can blow a party horn, fling some glitter in the air, and fall asleep watching Rudolf and Frosty’s Christmas in July.

Not Just Disney | The Real OC for Kids

Fireworks spray like shooting stars over Orange County every evening, with ooohs and aaaahs from the “Happiest Place on Earth” drifting through the original Disneyland theme park. There’s no doubt the Magic Kingdom turns family travel into an enchanting romp through kiddie heaven, but there’s so much more to The OC than what first meets a million star-struck eyes. From roaring beach fires to windswept fishing piers, tethered hot-air balloon rides, ice skating, and the crack of pro ball at Angel Stadium, you’ll find all kinds of magic brewing and bubbling when traveling with kids in Orange County.
