5 Epic Girls Weekend Ideas

Steve Shoup

Any woman knows girls’ trips are more than just a fun excuse to go away for a weekend. They are an absolute necessity. Getting time away with your girls to relax and bond is crucial to your mental health.

If you’re looking for great ideas for your next girls’ weekend, look no further. Below are five great destination spots with everything from spas to wine to history to shopping. Read on and start planning your next trip with your ladies!

  1. New Orleans

New Orleans is a top destination for bachelorette parties and Mardi Gras trips, but it also makes a great spot for a girls’ trip. Rent an Air BnB in the French Quarter, get beignets at Café du Monde for breakfast, grab an original muffuletta from Central Grocery for lunch, and take the trolley over to Magazine Street for some shopping and spa time. Bourbon Street has you covered for evening entertainment, and if shopping isn’t your speed, you can always visit the aquarium and zoo in the city.

  1. Austin

Austin, Texas, is a prime girls’ trip destination spot, with both historical and relaxation attractions alike. In the city, you can visit the Texas State Capitol building and South Congress Avenue. And if you drive about thirty minutes away from downtown, you can visit the Lake Austin Spa Resort, which has over 100 spa treatments and delicious cuisine made from food grown in their on-site organic gardens.

  1. Huntington Beach

If you and your friends are wanting to live the California girls lifestyle, Huntington Beach is the place for you. You can hang out in luxury cabanas and relax on the California beaches. You can even take a yoga class on the beach or hang ten with surfing lessons.

  1. Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket 

Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are among the best destinations for a girls’ trip. There are amazing beaches, top-notch shopping, incredible restaurants, and gorgeous New England island vibes. Plus, New England cruises are a great twist on classic cruises.

  1. Williamette Valley

If you and your girls are the wine mom types, Williamette Valley in Oregon is worth a visit. The valley is an hour south of Portland and was named the Wine Region of the Year in 2016. You can tour vineyards, get four wine pairings and food for just $20, and stay in some amazing Air BnB rentals.
