The old adage still rings true; "to each his own." When celebrating the incoming New Year, you may be a stay-up-past-midnight party animal or a proverbial early riser asleep before sundown. Each of us has our preferred celebration, so we've put together a list of things to do with options! Whether you're looking for family-friendly and non-alcoholic live music or a fancy, ticketed date night, the possibilities are endless!
