Kiss holiday stress goodbye

PHOENIX -  If the holidays have you feeling a little stressed, who could blame you? Between traveling through crowded airport terminals, shopping for everyone on your list, making sure the house is in order and making it to all of those parties and get togethers, this just might be your busiest time of year.

But marriage and family counselor Mark Bell says keep it all in perspective.

"Connection not perfection," said Mark Bell. "The holidays are about connecting with people, not trying to do everything perfectly. Don't be afraid to say 'no' to certain people or certain events."



Holiday light tour from the sky and other holiday adventures

How about a ride in a Cessna Caravan? Desert Splash Adventures in Scottsdale is offering $99 holiday light tours from the sky.

The nine-passenger plane will carry you from the East Valley to the West Valley for a birds eye view of the best light displays and the big landmarks around town.

You can also book flights on other tours the company of Alaskan bush pilots offer.

If flying isn't your thing, how about a double decker bus?

Just like the ones driving through London, the Real London Bus Company offers holiday sightseeing onboard their massive red double deckers. The company, founded by two British gents, also offers other tours throughout the year.

Finally, we offer one more way to see the sights in the cool December air.

Ollie The Trolley is a staple in Old Town Scottsdale. On this trip, you can see the lights while learning about the history of Scottsdale.
