Here’s Where to Go for Your Next Ladies’ Getaway
Gather up the squad and hit these 6 locales
Boys may come and boys may go, but your girlfriends? They will always be there to help you dissect that latest episode of Vanderpump Rules and tell you you can pull off a poncho. Celebrate your amazing squad by booking a ladies’ getaway to one of these awesome locales.
Best for foodies: Charleston, SC
Come for the picturesque B&Bs, boutiques and horse-drawn carriages on cobblestone streets. Stay for the awesome food scene, which has totally exploded in recent years. Sign the girls up for a cooking class at Charleston Cooks!, then take a walking tour of the historic French Quarter, where you can nab some famous boiled peanuts. For dinner, book at table at FIG (the ricotta gnocchi is to die for) or low-country favorite Hominy Grill, and wash it down with a few jalapeño-honey and cucumber gimlets at the Belmont.
Where to stay: The Zero George
Best for beach bumming: Bermuda
With its iconic pink-sand beaches and crystal waters, Bermuda is a tropical paradise for you and your besties. Grab a spot on Elbow Beach or Horseshoe Bay with a piña colada and Us Weekly in hand. Then, when you’ve had too much sun, head to the Heritage Court at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess for an English-inspired afternoon tea. Look at you--so ladylike!
Where to stay: Tucker’s Point Hotel and Spa
Best for wine lovers: Willamette Valley, OR
For a tasting trip that’s more low-key than Napa or Sonoma, look no further than Oregon’s idyllic wine country, which features more than 250 vineyards. For the region’s finest Pinot Noirs, make a tasting reservation at Beaux Frères Vineyard and Domaine Drouhin. Or, since you guys obviously won’t be driving, just book a day-long limo tour that starts in Portland and stops at boutique vineyards along the way.
Where to stay: Black Walnut Inn and Vineyard
BEST IF YOU WANT TO TALK FOR 48 HOURS STRAIGHT: Martha’s Vineyard, MA
The population skyrockets after May, but consider visiting in the off-season for a relaxed, low-key getaway perfect for serious catching up. After a full day of gabbing at the beach house, head to Atria’s cozy cellar bar (open year-round) or pick up some lobsters and seafood from the renowned Larsen’s Fish Market and have a clambake.
Where to stay: 5 Bedroom Colonial in Edgartown
Best if you all need to seriously de-stress: Scottsdale, AZ
Get away from the kids, the job and the dishes in this Sonoran Desert resort town, which boasts more spas per capita than anywhere else in the U.S. By day, you and your pals will get hot stone massages surrounded by the serene desert landscape. By night, dine at stellar local restaurants like Virtù, known for Mediterranean fare with a Southwestern twist.
Where to stay: Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain
Best for partying: Nashville, TN
If music, dancing and general getting down is your thing, then look no further than this honky tonk haven. Country is king here, and you can hear it while enjoying a few drinks at the Basemet, the Station Inn and Bluebird Café. The second most important thing in Nashville is the food, so make sure to fill your stomachs at Martin’s Bar-B-Que and Loveless Café.
Where to Stay: The Hutton Hotel
