St. Pete Beach Revelers Can Take the Elevator Home after Epic New Year’s Bash

Imagine ringing in the New Year at a resort that rests on a white-sand beach, in a celebration bound to please the senses. You’d throw away your cares, shaking what your mama gave you in the dance contest. You’d spoil yourself with treats like lobster shepherd pie, letting the richness roll over your tongue. Balloons would tumble from the ceiling, noisemakers would bleat, and glasses would be raised.

You don’t have to imagine anymore, because you’re invited to the TradeWinds Rockin’ in the Midnight Hour New Year’s Eve Party, Dec. 31, 2013. You can enjoy this epic party for $140 per person. But I’m thinking you should make it a mini-vacation.

You could begin the year with sand caressing your bare feet. You could take a spin in a paddleboat and ride on the High Tide slide.  You could reconnect with your loved ones, let go and enjoy life. And you could indulge in the biggest luxury of all: doing absolutely nothing.

Besides, with the TradeWinds two-night Rockin’ in the Midnight Hour package, it only makes sense to stay.

Starting at $590, the package includes accommodations at the Island Grand or the Guy Harvey Outpost, two tickets for the Rockin’ in the Midnight Hour New Year’s Eve party and a Vacation Gourmet Card good for a 20 percent discount on food and beverage at all TradeWinds outlets. The packages include unlimited rides on the High Tide Slide, a hooded beach cabana, paddleboats, tennis court play, fitness center, self-parking, wireless Internet access and more.

And you can bring the whole gang. Children ages 4-12 can ring in the New Year with their own luau-themed party, complete with games, crafts, dinner; kids ages 13-17 can play at the Teen Bash, complete with graffiti t-shirts, dancing and singing.

Smells like fun to me!
