Between cooking, making lunches, car pools, extra curricular activities, teacher meetings, school plays, and your job, there’s not many hours left in the day to devote to yourself. Sometimes we just need to get away from it all — work, kids, husband, the works. It always seems easy for the men to organize weekends golfing, camping, fishing, etc. Why is it so hard for women to do the same? If you’ve ever thought about taking a mini vacation with girlfriends or even a solo vacation, these ideas may just fit the bill. Bon Voyage!
Rest & Relaxation
When you think R&R, Arizona always comes to top of mind. At Miraval Resort & Spa in Tucson, the luxury wellness resort is just what a busy woman needs – to balance their physical, emotional, spiritual and intellectual needs. Activities include art and photography, trail rides, healthy living, exercise physiology, nutrition, biking, zip-ling, tightrope and more. Grab a few friends and enjoy the Girlfriend Getaway Package that includes casita style accommodations, meals, snacks, fitness, spa and self-discovery activities.
“Big” City Escape
Indulge yourself with a trip to the Big Apple, take a Broadway show and shop til you drop. Be sure to take in a Sex and the City tour and visit some of the show’s most famous hotspots. Fans of the show may want to stay at Hotel Giraffe, which doubled as Mr. Big’s apartment in Sex and the City: The Movie.
Grab your best girlfriends and head to the beautiful Beaches Turks & Caicos for the Best Friends Forever Getaway. The package includes a cocktail party, beach bonfire party, jewelry and wine soiree, private catamaran cruise, seaside yoga and mediation just to name a few of the fun activities Beaches has planned.
Are you a foodie or just want to cook like one? Culinary vacations are all the rage as vacationers learn the secrets to local cuisines. The world’s your oyster (no pun intended) as you decide where you want to visit. Perfect for short weekend getaways, week long tours or for the solo traveller. There are no shortage of sites like Epitourean that cater to this popular niche.
