So, you are still on the fence as to what you want to do on New Year’s Eve, right? One thing you know for sure is that you probably don’t want to be behind the wheel of a car. Of course, I don’t think that YOU would be a problem behind the wheel, it’s the 2 million other whack jobs that you have to watch out for, right?
Here’s an idea… Let someone else drive.
I mean, why not? If you don’t already live near a light rail station ( I’m not sure what you are waiting for ), you could always find a place to stay and let METRO cart you around all night for just $3.50. Seriously, that’s a whole lot cheaper than a cab to take you party hopping. ( See info on light rail holiday hours. )
While the Fiesta Bowl Block Party in Tempe draws HUGE crowds, there is also a big bunch of New Year’s Eve action at CityScape in Downtown Phoenix.
If you want to get all gussied up, the Phoenix Symphony might be your style. Close to Symphony Hall there are several great places to have a nice dinner and maybe a few drinks. Of course, you can walk to CityScape from there, as well, where you will find local bands, ice skating and vendors selling a variety of spirits. Don’t miss the parties within the party at CityScape, as well. Most of the venues have special happenings for just about anything you could ask for.
In Tempe, there will also be parties within the big party. The Bash on 6th is gonna’ get crazy, for sure.
So, take a look at a light rail map or two and make a plan of attack. ( Find a Park and Ride lot, but remember you can’t leave your car over night.) An all day / night light rail pass is just $3.50.
If you have other New Year’s ideas or know of other things happening along the light rail line, leave a comment here or on the Rail Life Facebook page, or please let us know on Twitter.
