Just because subzero temperatures got you down, that doesn’t mean that it is time to pack in your swimsuit cover-ups or your vacation ideas just yet. Call up your girlfriends and tell them it’s time for a premature celebratory summer hoorah! A getaway just for the ladies.
All sun. All fun. No boys allowed…..yet.
Napa Valley, CA: Napa Valley is one of the leading travel destinations in the world. Picturesque mountains splayed with vineyards year-round and wineries at every turn of the road. Besides the fact that I had you at wineries, Napa Valley also has a slew of other activities to partake in with your girlfriends. Have lunch at the renowned restaurant Morimoto with light fare such as the whitefish carpaccio or the hamachi tartare (MMmm). Afterwards, relax in Calistoga with a skin rejuvenating mud bath. If I haven’t sold you yet on this being one of the best buddy-bonding trips, did I mention Napa Valley has wine?
Bermuda: With its impeccable location in the Atlantic, Bermuda rarely sees the extremes of either hot or cold. Which means it is time to show off you beachwear-bod because it is bikini time, all the time . Grab the girls, rent a few scooters and head on over to Jobson’s Cove, arguably one of Bermuda’s most visually stunning beaches. With crystal clear water secluded by natural rock formations, enjoy the sun and unwind in the sand. Later on, dance in the streets with Bermuda’s famous Gombey dancers or sip a Dark and Stormy at a local hot spot. If you girls are feeling truly adventurous, participate in any one of the offered beach excursions from snorkeling to paddle boarding.
New York City, NY: Although this location may be stating the obvious, Carrie Bradshaw would murder in Manolos if we didn’t mention New York City as the premier girlfriend destination. Take a long weekend and enjoy the stunning sights of Manhattan with a plethora of things to do, from snagging tickets to a Broadway show or taking to Chelsea to walk the High Line. Nothing brings the girls together faster than a brunch reservation at The Standard Grill with Orchard Bellinis and Housemade Raised Donuts in cinnamon sugar. Still not convinced? Three words: Fifth Avenue Shopping.
Las Vegas, NV: You don’t need to have a bachelorette party as an excuse to go to Vegas. Just go. Never a dull moment in this sinful city, bring your swimsuit because there are pool parties galore. Wet Republic tops the list as the pool party to pop off with scantily clad cabana boys and specialty cocktails. Win back the money you dropped on bottle service at Ghostbar by playing a few rounds of roulette with the girls. Finish the night catching a Cirque du Soleil show and remind yourself why that extra yoga class Saturday morning matters.
