6 Family Friendly New Year’s Options in Jupiter and North Palm Beach County
Remember when you and your significant other partied into the wee hours as you watched the ball drop, the fireworks explode, and you welcomed in a new year? While that might seem a lifetime ago, and because parents age in dog years it was, new traditions spent with little ones can be just as fun. Really.
If tricking them into believing they stayed up late via Netflix isn’t your favorite idea, why not try one of these great local options?
