Summertime is the perfect time for a girls weekend getaway! From street food and shopping to beaches and blackjack, we want to help you plan the perfect getaway to pamper you and your closest friends.
1. Cancun, Mexico
From 5-star all-inclusive hotel resorts to the bluest beaches you’ve ever seen, Cancun is high on our list of fabulous destinations for a getaway with your girls. Dig your toes into the sand with a tropical drink at Playa Delfines, Cancun’s favorite public beach. Later, you can sign up for a “Cuncrawl” where locals take you and your friends on a tour of the city’s hottest nightclubs and discotheques. They’ll safely escort you back to your hotel for plenty of sleep before you wake up for a facial and massage at one of Cancun’s many spa resorts.
2. Austin, Texas
Whether you’re looking for something laid back or a night out on the town, Austin is just the place to find it all. Soak up the sun and take a dip at one of Austin’s many swimming holes like Barton Springs or Deep Eddy’s. Don’t miss the eclectic shops on South Congress or the fashionable 2nd Street district for a day of shopping. At night, you can find amazing restaurants for unique dining experiences or hit up the bars along 6th Street for plenty of dancing and people watching.
3. New York City
Home of the first Macy’s Department Store, New York City is known as a shopper’s dream. In addition to Macy’s 11 floors of merchandise, New York boasts nearly 3,500 clothing and fashion stores with new shops opening weekly. If you’ve maxed out your credit cards, enjoy one of the 83 New York museums or a live show in one of 40 professional theaters along Broadway.
4. San Francisco, California
San Francisco is home to several attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge and the stellar views from Half Moon Bay. Take a tour through San Francisco’s wine country to experience the boutique wineries of Sonoma or the big favorites in Napa. The city hosts a variety of vibrant neighborhoods like The Haight, where you can find exclusive shops and high-end vintage clothing, and Chinatown, which draws even more visitors annually than the Golden Gate Bridge.
5. Las Vegas, Nevada
Many consider Las Vegas one of those destinations where you’re bound to have more fun visiting with your girlfriends than anyone else. Take advantage of the glitz and glamour by booking a fabulous hotel along the Las Vegas strip. You can catch a mesmerizing Cirque de Soleil show at MGM or see Blue Man Group at the Bellagio. Of course, you have to cruise the hotel casinos and stop in for a game of Blackjack. If you’re not a big gambler, check out the buzzing nightclubs along the strip like the rooftop Drai’s Nightclub at The Cromwell, and dance the night away!
6. Miami, Florida
While Miami is host to attractions for everyone, the city is an exceptionally enticing destination for an all girls getaway. Enjoy cocktails on South Beach or a day of sun on Miami Beach, also known as “America’s Riviera.” Miami also caters to those who need a little pampering. Visit Mandarin Oriental Spa for facials and massages or the reputable Spa E that takes manis and pedis to a new level. Whether you’re relaxing, shopping, or taking in the nightlife, you’re sure to have a blast when visiting Miami.
