Whether it’s mother-daughter bonding, an school friend’s reunion, birthday parties or a bachelorette party, girlfriends’ getaways provide the perfect opportunity for girl time. Your girlfriend getaways can focus on spas visits, wine tasting, shopping, dining, cooking, lounging in the sun – or even better – a little bit of everything!
For theater-loving gals, it’s hard to beat a London getaway – from classics in the West End, to Shakespeare at the Globe, and avant-garde productions at the various Fringe Theatres. Add in dinner at one of London’s great restaurants and you’ve got the perfect recipe for a girls’ night on the town.
Just like on the men’s list, one of the top destinations for the ladies is Las Vegas. What better place to have a bachelorette weekend than this notorious party city? Besides the gambling, fantastic restaurants and world-famous nightlife – the shopping in Vegas is fantastic. The great part about this city is it pretty much has everything: you can shop and lounge by the pool during the day, and party into the wee hours at night. It’s pretty much a one-stop shop location for a girlfriend getaway.
Like Vegas, another great one for the girls is New York City. There really is no place better to shop than NYC. From Fifth Ave to Chinatown, designer to discount – this city has it all. Plus, the ‘Sex & the City’ nightlife is perfect for girls of all ages!
Relaxing in an all-inclusive is another great option. Los Cabos, Mexico is a fabulous choice. But really there are tons of great all-inclusives all over Mexico, the Caribbean and even Central America. This choice really provides a relaxing and easy vacation – no cooking or cleaning – plus you know your budget before you go. Sun, sand and spa all perfect components to help girls relax and re-connect. On a side note – this also makes a good option for a mommies and kids trip.
Finally, how about a wine-sipping tour in Sonoma? Few things say “girls’ night out” like a bottle of wine. Extend the fun of the evening into a full-blown getaway based around the fruit of the vine in Sonoma Valley, one of the country’s best wine regions.
