Girls Getaway Weekend Ideas

If you haven’t been part of a girls getaway weekend, then you may be the one that needs to pull the group together and start planning.  After all, someone has to get the party started and it might as well be you. Also, there are many getaway weekend ideas that you can consider, whether you choose among beach weekend getaway ideas, a spa weekend, or  a shopping getaway!

Girls Weekend GetawaysThe first couple of things you want to decide is when you want to go and what you want to do. Then you can decide where it is you want to go. Unless there is already a place in mind that you have been dying to visit, it may be best to decide where later. That’s because there are so many variables when you plan a weekend getaway for other people.

For one thing, don’t assume that you have to go in the summer. While most people plan vacations in the summer months, you can go away for a weekend virtually any time of the year. What’s more, if you enjoy the winter then you may want to plan your girlfriend getaway when there’s snow on the ground so you can go skiing or sledding.

Sometimes you don’t have much choice, especially when there are several people involved. You may just get one shot and that is the weekend you have to go. If that’s the case, that is fine and you will still be able to find lots of great activities.

There are special events and activities all across the country each month of the year. Once you decide which month your getaway will take place in, you can search for festivals and special events that you might be interested in. Some women prefer to spend the weekend getting pampered at a spa and others would rather be outdoors the entire time. Once you find out what your group wants to do then you can set about finding the best place to do it.

Some women really don’t care what they do; they just want to get away from it all and visit with their friends. They may be so happy to have a break from the boardroom or the babies that they will be happy to just hang out. Other women like to plan adventurous weekends, such as murder mystery weekends or weekends that involve hang gliding, sky diving, or bungee jumping.

Actually, planning girlfriend getaway weekends are almost as much fun as going on them. Once you talk to all your friends and find out what everyone wants to do, you can start looking for the perfect place to do it. The most important thing, of course, is that you’ll all be together.

  • Egg Harbor in Door County, Wisconsin, offers a getaway weekend for women – Girlfriends Great EGGscape. The third annual event is held May 12-15, 2011. It’s the perfect Midwest opportunity to relax, relate & release!

  • We have a core group of four girls that travel every year to a new destination. Picking the destination is always the hardest part. So, every year before the end of our trip we all put our top three picks for the next year in a hat and do a vote. The destination with the most votes wins – unless something better pops up before we book it:)
