There’s something to be said for taking a vacation with a few of your closest girlfriends. Family vacations are great and time away with your spouse can be fun but there’s something extra special about time spent with the girls. Large metropolitan cities may instantly pop to mind but sometimes going a little off the beaten path can create wonderful experiences. You’ll need to consider what activities your group of friends enjoys before making a decision however most of these locations have something for everyone to enjoy.

5 Great Girlfriend Getaways:

Santa Fe, New Mexico

Artists have been coming to Santa Fe for years but what might draw you in is the artisanal chocolate that this area has become known for. From hot chocolate elixirs to chocolate chili peppers you’ll be in chocolate heaven! Spend the day browsing unique one of a kind boutiques, dine on exceptional Southwest cuisine and cozy up in one of the dozens of small inns. If you’re looking to relax the Ten Thousand Waves Mountain Spa is a play on traditional Japanese hot springs and offers a women’s only soaking tub.

Willamette Valley, Oregon

If beautiful scenery and sipping some of the best wine in North America is your idea of a getaway then a visit to Oregon wine country is a must. With 9 listed wine trails you can make your way through different areas of the valley sipping as you go. Some focus on art, some on shopping, and some just the wine itself. When you’ve had your fill, enjoy amazing food or a horseback ride.

Charlotte, North Carolina

Charlotte is an often overlooked gem nestled in the heart of North Carolina. This cool capitol will keep you and your friends busy for a weekend or a week! Visit some great museums like the Betchler Museum of Modern Art or Mint Museum Uptown. Stop off in the historic neighborhoods of Myers Park or South End for boutiques and Carolina-made treats. When you get hungry Charlotte delivers with hundreds of options but whatever you do, make sure to eat some Carolina barbecue and hush puppies before you go!

Minneapolis, MN

Minneapolis gets a bad rap for its long (and cold) winters but this Midwestern gem has a lot going on. Above the Falls Sports has great kayaking trips for groups. If you’d rather not paddle, take the Minneapolis Queen Paddlewheeler cruise instead. Interested in great food? Minneapolis has a huge agricultural tradition and many restaurants are big on local, organic foods that pay homage to Midwestern roots. If international is more your style, visit Eat Street (yes it’s the real street name! ) where you’ll find dozens of restaurants from all over the world. If you’ve always wanted to visit Broadway, try the Guthrie Theatre, for world class off Broadway productions of famous theatre shows.

Austin, TX

Ready for some pampering? Texas may be just what the doctor ordered! Lake Austin Spa Resort is not only a great place to visit, they’ll work with you to create a completely personalized visit for your group.

You just show up and enjoy! Of course you can always head into town for a night on the Riverwalk, no cowboy hats required. For the group that truly needs to recharge the Travaasa Experiential Resort offers an inclusive rate that allows guests access to a host of classes, spa treatments, and dining opportunities without leaving the property.
