Here are a few ideas of what you can this Valentine’s Day in the East Valley area.
Four Peaks Brewery
Breweries seem to be all the rage lately, offering up an eclectic range of beers and food in a laid-back setting. Head to the Four Peaks Brewery and sign up for a tour to see how these tasty brews are made. After the tour, sit down with your date and show down on some of the top burgers and fries in town.
Want to sweep your date off their feet in a Disney-like setting? Walk into a magical space filled with fluttering butterflies at the Butterfly Wonderland at Odysea in the Desert. As the largest butterfly conservatory in the country, the wonderland regularly holds events for visitors of all ages, such as Paint Nights and Bug Love! Date Night for adults.
For a more wild date night, head to The Perch, a unique and charming rooftop bar in Downtown Chandler. Home to more than 50 rescued birds, guests are surrounded by a flurry of colorful feathers while they imbibe on specialty cocktails and craft beers.
Nervous about that special day? Arizona’s only ice bar, Polar Bar, is the perfect icebreaker for a first date. Visitors are whisked away to a cozy cottage setting that creates the perfect intimate date atmosphere. After warming up by the fireplace with a toasty drink, put on a fur jacket (provided by the bar) and head into the ice-carved bar.

Winter is finally in full swing here in the desert, and with it comes the excitement of various winter activities for you to enjoy with your friends and family. Though the Chandler area may not have the traditional weather associated with winter fun, it marks the best weather of the year. As it happens, the entire East Valley provides numerous opportunities to enjoy the winter, so here is a list of activities to mark on your calendars this year.
Merry Main StreetThe Temple Lights event, held annually at the Mesa Arizona Temple Grounds, will unfortunately not be possible this year due to renovations. However, the Merry Main Street event held in downtown Mesa, is still planning to go on strong from the end of November through the beginning of January. The event will have an ice-skating rink, a meet-and-greet with Santa, a Christmas market, and a fantastic ride on the Polar Express via the light rail.
One of the most magical part of the holidays in many communities is the lighting of the town Christmas Tree. The tree lighting event in Chandler combines the festive decorations of the holidays with a desert twist - a tree made out of tumbleweeds. Children can visit Santa’s house and workshop and also write letters to him, that are guaranteed to be delivered in time for Christmas! At 7 p.m., there will be a parade for all to enjoy, and the lighting of the tree takes place around Eight.
Because the Phoenix winter weather is the best weather of the year, it’s a good idea to stay outside. Riverview Park is one of the top parks for a day outdoors. There are several climbing structures and all-age zip-lines. Spend some time having a late Friendsgiving or Friends Christmas BBQ at one of the many picnic areas.
Alamo Drafthouse Chandler
Nothing screams the holidays like a winter movie marathon. The folks at Alamo Drafthouse Chandler are holding a number of movie parties, including the Alamo Encore series, where they’ll be playing classics like Love, Actually, Elf, A Christmas Story,and Scrooged. They’ll also be holding a number of kid friendly events and have special discounts for different days.
And, of course, nothing beats the classic holiday tradition like loading up the carand heading out to view neighborhood Christmas lights. Ahwatukee, Mesa, Chandler, and Gilbert have some of the best voted housesfor light displays. Spend some quality time with the family enjoying each, and maybe come away from the experience with a few ideas for your displays for next year!
Whatever you choose to do, the important part is the time you spend together. Each of these activities are sure to bring good cheer and lifelong memories. Get out and enjoy the gorgeous weather of the winter season in the East Valley!
