Celebrate New Year’s Eve near Arizona golf communities

It’s hard to believe that 2015 is coming to an end and a new year is on the horizon. Whether it was a rough year and you’re ready to start anew, or you had a fantastic year full of memorable milestones, celebrating the New Year is fun (and cathartic) for all.

Here are our top activities to help you usher in 2016 in style!
Family Friendly Finds
Help the kids celebrate early with the Phoenix Zoo’s Noon Year’s Eve event. Festivities run from 9 am-12 pm and include real snow with a snowball toss, music, dancing, games and a cider toast to the New Year at noon. There’s even a special area for those under five to play safely. The event is included with regular zoo admission. You can also catch the famous ZooLights later in the evening at an additional cost from 5:30-10:30 pm.
You can also take the kiddos to Mesa’s Golfland for their New Year’s Bash on December 31st. For just $19.99 per person (online advance ticket price), everyone can take part in unlimited activities like miniature golf, laser tag, arcade games, and race cars, plus a balloon drop at midnight!  The bash kicks off at 6 pm and runs until 1 am.
Grown-up Entertainment
Kid-free for New Year’s Eve? Take advantage with a couple of more mature parties and activities. The Phoenix Symphony is hosting a New Year’s Eve concert at Symphony Hall. The mix of classic waltzes, seasonal tunes, Broadway hits, and even some pop favorites will appeal to almost anyone. The symphony offers two performances at 4 pm and 7:30 pm. Tickets start at $18 and include a complimentary glass of champagne.
One of the Valley’s most popular New Year’s Eve event is the NYE Block Party on Mill Avenue in Tempe. Once a part of the Fiesta Bowl’s series of football-themed events, the annual Tempe Block Party is now a standalone event with fun, food, dancing, live entertainment, and over 18 separate bars. While kids may attend, it’s recommended for those ages 18+. Gates open at 7 pm and tickets are $10 in advance or online. For added safety, the city and festival sponsor Coors Light are making all buses and METRO light rail rides free from 7 pm-2 am.
Want to stick a little closer to your Scottsdale golf community? A few hot local hotels are hosting their own NYE parties, too. The Saguaro in Old Town Scottsdale is throwing “an upscale affair” including a three-hour premium reception, hors d’oeuvres by their own Iron Chef Jose Garces, silent auction, casino gaming, interactive performers, a DJ, and of course a midnight champagne toast with confetti explosion. Tickets are $105 per person or $145 for a VIP ticket. Guests can also take advantage of the reduced room rates to stay overnight.
Looking for something different? How about a James Bond-themed black tie affair at Flourish in Fountain Hills? This is the perfect choice if you live in Arizona golf homes in the area and don’t want to venture too far into the city. Guests can compete in a “Best Bond Girl” competition or simply enjoy the four-course dinner, champagne toast, and a ball drop at both 10 pm and midnight. Bar seating is $98 per person or $300 for up to four people at a table.
No matter what you decide to do, The Matheson Team wishes everyone a fun and safe New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Celebrate 2015 and welcome in the endless possibilities of 2016!
