There’s something festive about all the preparations for Halloween, but after the big night, it’s all over until the end of November and the holiday season proper finally begins. If you’re looking for something to do in the mean time, consider heading to the BlueWater Resort and Casino in sunny Arizona. The holiday blues are a real phenomenon—in fact, many people tend to feel a little anxious or sad leading up to and even during the holidays. To combat this, doctors recommend getting 20 minutes of sunlight each day, along with some exercise. The good news is that the BlueWater has plenty of sun and plenty of opportunities to get out and enjoy it.
Get Outside and Get Active
The BlueWater Resort and Casino has plenty of outdoor activities to keep you feeling your best and having a blast. Check out some water fun with Wakeboard Island, where you can wakeboard on a fun course in the marina that’s perfect for all ages and skill levels. If you’re in the mood to swim, there are three indoor swimming pools, a spa and hot tub, a huge waterfall and a giant water slide that your kids will absolutely love.
Do you love hitting the links? The BlueWater features an 18-hole golf course where you can enjoy the most desirable tee times as a guest of the resort. You’ll get access to a driving range overlooking the river, a snack bar for when those hunger pangs strike, putting greens, practice greens, golf pro lessons and a full-service pro shop.
Grab a Bite to Eat
There are four restaurants at BlueWater: River Willow Steakhouse, BlueWater Grille, River Walk Deli and River’s Edge Cantina. When happy hour hits, check out the Dig Bar & Lounge and the Atrium Bar. If a picnic is more your speed, enjoy a bite to eat on the beach or plan a barbeque with all your friends and family.
Take in a Show or Try Your Luck in the Casino
The BlueWater’s calendar always shows you what’s coming up for concerts and shows. Awesome entertainment, coupled with some gambling at the slots or tables on the casino floor, can make your stay even more enjoyable. In the casino, there are plenty of slots, table games, a poker room and bingo to find something to suit any taste.
The weeks preceding Thanksgiving are some of the best for NFL fans. The BlueWater loves its football! If you’re a big fan, take part in the $1,000,000 Pig Skin Pick-Em contest, in which you’ll compete with others to accurately fill out the brackets, and the Gridiron Football Challenge, where you could win $70,000 through weekly drawings. Come game time, head over to the Dig Lounge and cheer on your favorite team in style thanks to the nearly 20-foot wide video wall.
