Bonding time between girlfriends is an honored tradition and choosing the destinations for these holidays is not an easy task. We hope the list below makes life easier for you and your girls. These are girlfriend destinations in the United States and each travel destination guarantees good food, good time, good chit chats, and a good reason to have another such getaway the next time.
Hawaiian Road Trip
Go with the girls and fly to the Big Island in Hawaii. You can get a car rental and have a joy ride and enjoy the most beautiful views while on the road. The varying landscapes provide an endless backdrop to a great bonding time with your friends at the plantation of the Holualoa Kona Coffee or exploring towns for the best foods.
Drive around lava fields and enjoying the offerings of the national parks might make you hungry, so grab a snack from the Punalu’u Bake Shop where the best of breads are served and have some fruits and relaxation at Shipman House Bed and Breakfast. Make sure you include in your list the barbecued pork and coconut prawns from the Bamboo Restaurant and a cup from the Hilo Coffee Mill.
Enjoy great flavors in Charleston, South Carolina
Book a room at Charleston Place and you can go out for walk or maybe glam up for dinner. Whatever you plan to do, do not go to the spa so soon since it might just be too hard to leave. For a memorable dinner, get a table at High Cotton or enjoy some drinks at The Gin Joint. If you want some sweets, head to the Bakehouse for their cupcakes and cookies or sample the cheeses made by Goat-Sheep-Cow. If you want your dose of brunch while chatting with the girls, go to Palmetto Cafe where a hearty, classic Southern dishes are served.
Sonoma Valley Wine Tasting
One classic girlfriend destination is Sonoma in California and one good reason to visit is to taste some of the best wines in the region. We choose Sonoma over Napa since we want the girl bonding time to be free of headaches as Napa has a ton of wine trails which also means a thick crowd of travelers. You can rent a ride in San Francisco and head to Sonoma. The group can go for a yummy lunch at Fish along the Harbor Drive in Sausalito and then head to the family vineyards of TR Elliott.
The big dinner with the girls should be at Cyrus Restaurant in Healdsburg at the heart of the valley and you can either reserve a room at the Auberge du Soleil or the Farmhouse.
Spa Trip in Sedona, Arizona
Another worthwhile getaway with your girlfriends is in Sedona for a spa holiday. You can choose from the best spa destinations like Sedona Rouge, L’Auberge de Sedona, or the Mii Amo which can guarantee that you will be rested and refreshed after receiving their treatments. Aside from the pampering you can also enjoy the healthy cuisines that they serve.
Party in Miami
If you are not looking for some R&R, then head to Miami and have the best time of your life with your circle of friends. Check in a The Townhouse or at The Raleigh then stop at Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink for dinner. Get some cocktails at The Delano’s Rose Bar or sample mezcal at the Mercadito Midtown. Ceviche 105 is the place to visit if you are looking to satisfy your craving for Peruvian food and have some grilled seafood at Garcia’s Seafood Grille. Enjoy the pool by the day or head to the organic weekend market at Coconut Grove.
