What To Do For Winter Holidays In Scottsdale: Christmas & New Year’s Eve
The Weather Outside In Scottsdale
If you’re in NYC, Chicago or Philly or any of these other places where you have been freezing your butt off for a month already, Scottsdale may be just what you’re looking for right now. The weather from October to May is the most perfect premium weather you could hope for pretty much every day.
Spending New Year’s Eve In The Desert
Thinking about doing something different for NYE? Allow me to make some suggestions on where to ring in the new year. Scottsdale is a resort town and we have the weather to back it up. It’s shorts and golfing weather during the day with cooler nights to sit by the fire pit.
A December To Remember
If you have never been to Scottsdale before and you’re here in December, the #1 thing I would recommend doing is going to the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess in lower North Scottsdale. Every year their Christmas At The Princess event gets bigger and more awe-inspiring.
Where To Ring In The New Year
If you are looking for the best place to spend new year’s eve in Scottsdale, you have plenty of options. Talking Stick Casino has two parties: Mirrorball and Raven’s NYE Gala. Both require tickets to attend and will be very busy. Nothing like gambling your way into the new year. Your other options are to decide if you want to do a prix fixe meal at one of the amazing restaurants in town or if you want to go to Old Town to party all night. If you like bar crawls, there an 8 venue All-Access Pass with drink specials. The W Hotel in Old Town always does a fantastic job keeping a party going. The W will be hosting the Genesis New Year’s Eve Party with a W drop at midnight and fireworks.
About Your Attire
Scottsdale is not a dressy place. While there are plenty of places to see and be seen and big charity events like the Heart Ball and the Wish Ball, by and large, you can get away with golf attire at many restaurants. On new year’s eve, you want to step up your wardrobe game. The good news is that you’re not going to need a coat hopping from one Uber to the other. If you do bring a coat, keep in mind most places do not have a coat check so you will be carrying it around with you wherever you go.
Visit Scottsdale In The Winter
Whether you live in Arizona or not, Scottsdale is a great place to visit, especially in the winter months. The weather is seldom bad, the days are mostly sunny, it’s cool enough at night to wear a cute outfit and there’s plenty to do. Day drinking is practically a sport here but if that’s not your thing, Scottsdale has more than 50 golf courses to choose from as well as an amazing culinary scene. If you’re ready to do something this new year’s eve, definitely think of Scottsdale as the place to do it.
