The Hotel Valley Ho is one of our favorite spots in the Valley. Great rooms, awesome restaurants, and an excellent pool, Valley Ho has it all. It’s almost September and that means that stores around town are getting ready to put up holiday stuff. Yeah, we know it’s a little excessive to see Thanksgiving decorations when it’s still 100+ degrees outside, that’s just the way it goes. But we have some holiday news that you can appreciate. Just released is all the fun things going on at the Valley Ho this season. Let’s take a look.
