Here it is, the moment we have all been waiting for, "It's the most wonderful time of the year!" I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting to conclude 2022 with some special memories that I, along with my family and friends, can cherish for years to come!
Therefore, I have provided a list of fun and memorable events in an area near you! Striving to make each year filled with special memories, I hope these events will provide just that! In addition, extending an invitation to any of these events could be the perfect opportunity to rekindle a connection with that "someone" you've been meaning to reach out to.
In short, regardless of how you spend your last month of 2022, I hope this year ends with new friendships and stronger bonds, ultimately bringing you closer to those you love.
Visit the L.A. Zoo: Animals Aglow!
Disneyland, Sea World, Knott's Berry Farm, and Universal Studios (and many others) are known amusement parks that have transformed their magical, thrilling, and awe-inspiring worlds into holiday playgrounds for you to come and enjoy! However, one place that should not be overlooked and is equally as remarkable is the L.A. Zoo: Animals Aglow event! Although they are closed most Mondays & Tuesdays and on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day, you can find this event open and in full swing all other days from 6 pm-10 pm until January 22, 2023! During this event, you will take a self-guided 60-90 minute stroll through wildlife-inspired lantern displays, interactive elements, and fabulous photo ops (for your posting pleasures!)
