My friend recently tried out a Donut Boat rental on Tempe Town Lake and had such a fun time!

World of Illumination in Glendale and Tempe

I love how the holiday season brings so many fun events to the valley! Over the weekend, we took in World of Illumination’s new Glendale location drive-through light show. We attended this event twice last year (both their previous North Phoenix location, as well as their Tempe location) and it was a hit. The concept is an immersive light show experience, synchronized to music, and it can be enjoyed without having the leave the comfort of your vehicle. It is a good alternative to Glendale Glitters or Zoolights if you want to avoid walking through crowds of people, especially if you have small children or elderly relatives with mobility issues.
