Of all the holidays, New Year’s Eve tends to be the one with the most fun and the least amount of work; especially when you choose to go away for the holiday and leave all temptation of throwing your own celebration at home behind! If you have been considering ushering in the New Year from a new locale, may we suggest a wintry celebration in our favorite hometown? Bend, Oregon is the perfect spot to start the new year out with a bang, and of course, our Arrived Now vacation rentals offer the perfect spot to stay for a Bend New Year’s!

Bend New Year’s Eve Bonfire on the Snow

Over the years, you have probably celebrated New Year’s in many ways, but we can pretty much guarantee you have never celebrated on snowshoes with a bonfire in the middle of the forest! Wanderlust Tours offers this once in a lifetime (unless you come back next year!) experience on New Year’s Eve, starting at 9 PM. For $100 dollars per person, you and your family will snowshoe through the woods to an area that they have carved out of the snow; once you arrive, there will be hot cocoa (with Vodka for the over 21 crew!) desserts, a nature talk, and at midnight? As you sit around the bonfire surrounded by nature, friends, and family, a champagne toast will be offered to the New Year and for those who believe that what you are doing on New Year’s Eve will be what you do the entire year, we really can’t think of any better way to do so! Tickets are limited, so book here as soon as possible.

Live Music with Larry and His Flask

Sometimes, all you need for a really excellent celebration is your partner in crime, some good music, and a few drinks to end the Bend New Year with a bang. Live music with Larry and his flask fits the bill nicely. Held at the Midtown Ballroom, 51 NW Bend Avenue, tickets are $17 and the mood will be mellow. The doors open at 7:00 PM and the party lasts until 2 AM the next year!

Stay Home with Those Closest to You

And the mellow mood continues when you celebrate with just those you love the most in comfort and style in your Arrived Now vacation escape! Build a fire in the fireplace, pop some frozen hors-d’oeuvres in the oven, open a bottle of your favorite champagne and watch Rockin’ New Year’s Eve on the state of the art television; 2019 promises to be a year to remember! Reserve your stay today!
