Ring in the New Year with Your Significant Other

There are so many ways to celebrate on New Year’s Eve. You can enjoy a party at home, celebrate with your children and watch fireworks. There are events in the Houston catering to every crowd and interest, from family-friendly celebrations to adults-only dance parties. But many area hotels also host specials, and if you’re looking for some one-on-one time as the year winds down, here are some hotels and parties to check out.
