Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!
We love our families. We really do!
But sometimes we just need to spend quality time with our girlfriends!
So, get in that full day of pampering and retail therapy,
and then get out for a night on the town!

You haven't seen each other in weeks, months, or maybe even years. And you know there is going to be a lot of late-night catching up to do! So the first question is whether you can get all that catching up done in a single night, or whether you'll need a few days. Because who knows when life will cooperate again to let you all get together! No matter the decision, we've got you covered with the best places to stay. Let the excitement begin! Cozy B&B? Lavish Hotel? Quaint Inn? Take your pick.
2) Warm Up
Rise and shine and start your day by getting a move on. Whether you decide to walk and talk all together, pair off for an exercise class, or go solo on a run, you won't find a shortage of ways to get your blood pumping.
3) Cool Down
After all that exertion you deserve a little pampering. We've got amazing spas and baths to help you relax and de-stress. Depending on how much time you have, your options are nearly limitless.

6) Get Your Zen On
What a whirlwind day! A little quiet to soak it all in can be the perfect change of pace. Maybe you're the type to enjoy a straight up Yoga class. or sit with a meditation group.
