Did you get your tickets for the year 2023? Well, if you’re reading this, you received a ticket and are now present and admitted into the brand new year. Yeah! Welcome to the event 2023, another year, a new marker, a line in the sand. The 20s decade started out turbulent with Covid, but things are looking up in the third year of the decade which according to the Chinese calendar is the ‘Year of the Water Rabbit’. Sounds a little better than the year of the lion and the dragon. What is a water rabbit? Well according to Chinese astrology the Year of the Water Rabbit’ should be more peaceful. The sign of Water Rabbit is a symbol of longevity, peace, and prosperity in Chinese culture. 2023 is predicted to be a year of hope.

What do you hope for this year?

Personally, I like to start the year hopeful, set some goals, write down a few resolutions, and schedule some fun travel plans. If you’re not a fan of making personal résolutions, why don’t you get out a calendar and create some travel resolutions for the year. With airfare a little on the expensive side, those of you that are reading this most likely can drive to Rocky Point avoiding the most expensive part of a vacation, the airfare.

Now is the best time to make some future plans for upcoming busy weekends and reserve your accommodations. One way to be full of hope is to look at each month and try to figure out a weekend getaway or a vacation. I mark my calendars with anticipation and know each month holds an adventure. Rocky Point is no longer just a seasonal getaway, we have amazing events every month. With that in mind, here’s the short list of events that are worth making note of and making plans to come to Rocky Point.

Please note… any given weekend there’s always live music and events going on, as well as charity events, sports events, golfing, fishing, and family events. But if you want to vacation in a condo or Airbnb, make a note of the following short list of busy weekends and scheduled events, and reserve now before the town gets sold out.


Get ready to start the year with some live music at the beach. January Jam is now a full-on weekend of music celebrating their 15th year. Live Music at various venues, around town featuring Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, and many others and a Canción golf tournament. January 13-15.


Whale season, remember it is the ‘Year of Hope’, so hopefully the whale sightings will begin in January and continue throughout the Spring. Many local companies offer whale tours and are expert at spotting the spouts of the humpback, grey’s or fins. This is a great reason to visit a Rocky Point in February. Another very special whale event that happens this time of year is Tony’s Mystic Whale Tours. Resident Tony Ballesteros’s shares this magical journey with you for groups of 5 or 6. A bucket list trip, that originates out of Puerto Peñasco Airport and is all inclusive of flight and tour to the city of Guerrero Negro, Baja California Sur (the Grey Whale capital), Mystic Whale Tours is the whale tour of all whale tours and is taking bookings from January 16, 2023 to March 16, 2023. Contact Tony at 520 249 2337 or email tonyballesteros2@msn.com.


Two words— Spring Break. The month of spring break will bring many musical activities and events. Depending on what high school, what state or what university Spring Break runs most of the month of March. One event worth taking note of is Rocky Point Country Bash March 24-26, 2023, a three-day country music festival at Manny’s featuring hot Nashville artists. Check out Manny’s Facebook page or Rocky Point Country Bash on Instagram.
