When it comes to ringing in the New Year, what’s the first image that comes to mind? Times Square? We see it on television every year: the thousands of people wearing the goofy glasses as they dance to the songs of their favorite performers and watch the magical crystal ball drop during the exciting 10-second countdown. Of course, who could forget all of that multi-colored confetti as it rains down on the crowd as the clock strikes 12? Despite the excitement of Times Square, sometimes there is nothing better than to get away from the crowd and noise to celebrate the start of a new year. And here in Arizona, Hidden Meadow Ranch may be just the place.
At Hidden Meadow Ranch, one can find tranquility and bliss among confetti of snow as they celebrate with friends and loved ones. Located in Arizona’s White Mountains, guests wanting to escape the city can experience the wilderness in luxury as they make their stay in elegant log cabins amid aspen groves, whispering Ponderosa pines and twinkling lakes and streams.
“What better way to wrap up the past year and welcome in the new than to take a peaceful stroll through a meadow at dawn and catch a glimpse of visiting elk, deer or bald eagles?” asks Jane Lenci, general manager of Hidden Meadow Ranch. “Make your first New Year’s resolution to ring in 2013 in a most relaxing, restorative frame of mind.”
As part of the New Year’s Eve festivities at the Hidden Meadow Ranch, guests can expect a special menu from Chef Kurt Jacobsen, the Ranch Roundup evening children’s program from 6-10 p.m., music from the Desert Thunder Band from 8:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m., and a special champagne toast at midnight with party favors.
Get away from the city this holiday season and make a trip to the Hidden Meadow Ranch as you let go of the old and celebrate exciting possibilities with the new.
