One of the fastest growing travel specialties is the “Girlfriend Getaway” and it’s easy to understand why. After all the stresses of everyday life, there’s nothing quite as enjoyable and relaxing as getting away from “reality” with those true friends who allow ( and even encourage) you to totally be yourself without fear of judgment. Of course, the same goes for the guys, although they may not admit it as freely. A few days away with “the guys” on the golf course can be more valuable than hours of therapy. Read on for a few suggestions for creative escapes.
A little Retail Therapy? If you love to shop – even if it’s just window shopping – why not combine a weekend in the “big city” with great shopping, dining and entertainment options? New York City and Chicago come to mind first, but there are many amazing options that are centrally located and served by convenient airports.
Love being pampered at the Spa – how about a Spa or Yoga retreat? A little luxury and pampering during a wellness weekend never hurt anyone, and you might even come home with some healthy new habits, and feel a couple pounds lighter…both good things!
“What happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas”… you’ve heard it before! In addition to casinos, Las Vegas offers amazing dining, shopping, live entertainment and world class golf courses…and most resorts have ridiculously gorgeous pools and spas.
Have a group of foodie friends? A few days spent wine tasting or at a culinary boot-camp can be fantastic otpions for a getaway. Because wine and good food are ALWAYS a great idea!
A sports related trip works well for both ladies and men. What about a fitness retreat for those who love to exercise? Or a golf weekend at an amazing resort with daily tee times? Or Stand Up Paddle boarding in the Caribbean? All it takes is a shared interest and some planning.
All inclusive resorts or cruises are natural fits for this type of travel, where your biggest decision for the day might be whether to order champagne or a mojitio…or if you'll sit by the pool or on the beach.
Everyone can use a little mental “down time". So, think about YOUR ideal getaway….who do you need to spend some time with? Most of us have people in our lives that are long over due for a meaningful visit. Why not let us help you plan that all-important trip soon.
