With kids in tow, you're not going to be able to do the bar scene this New Year's Eve. But we found these events, where you can bring the whole family, and have a good time ringing in 2013.

Countdown at ZooLights

The final night of ZooLights at Utah's Hogle Zoo ends with an early New Year's Even countdown at 9 p.m. Just think of it as counting down to 2013 with those on the East Coast. Beforehand, enjoy some hot chocolate while the fam browses the grounds filled with stunning animal light displays.

Family New Year's Eve Party at Treehouse Children's Museum

The Treehouse is already cool enough to spend the day on Dec. 31, with plenty of interactive exhibits, plus their namesake—a giant spiral staircase treehouse filled with activities like dress-ups, but they're also having a party. Join the museum for a confetti toss, face painting, magic shows and more.
