Walking in a winter wonderland…in Arizona! Many venues in the Scottsdale area put a little extra special touch to get you into the holiday spirit. Beginning November 20, the season starts at Westgate with Santa, holiday music, ice skating performances, holiday tree lighting, and a magical snow will fall nightly. Kids will enjoy free ice skating and the magic of the holiday season.
The Phoenix Zoo puts up an amazing holiday light display called ZooLights that the whole family will enjoy seeing. Since you can only enjoy the light in the evening, don’t expect to see too many animals.
Train lovers will enjoy a ride through the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park where visitors will be able to see the park lit up for the holidays. Santa will be in the park too until he needs to leave in time for his Christmas Eve ride.
If you still have a bit of holiday shopping to get finished up, the Days Inn & Suites can help. Book a room at this special rate and receive a $25 American Express gift card.
