Whether it’s a mom and daughter(s) trip or a fun trip with best friends and colleagues, some well-planned time out with the girls is always a good idea for a break.
But this time comes around so infrequently, that you want to make sure it’s planned perfectly!
A well-planned girl’s trip could be the perfect escape you need; renewing your energy, relationships, and creating long lasting memories.
Struggling to come up with ideas? Here are five fun ways to take an all-girls trip.
5 Fun Ideas for Your Next Girls Trip
Take a Road Trip Style Vacation
Road trips are a great way to spend quality time, as you’re ditching the stressful time in transit between airports, for time in the car where you can chat freely, sing loudly, laugh often, and move at your own pace, discovering gems along the way.
Depending on the size of your group, the length of the trip, and how much gear you’re packing, lightweight travel trailers can be a great way to carry everything you’ll need for your trip.
Some travel trailers, such as the Rockwood 2109s, are built with such lightweight designs that they can easily be pulled along by your SUV, which can be a great way to travel if you’re worreid about finding hotel rooms at every stop.
Other ways to make this trip memorable, beyond your average road trip, could be to rent a sports car for a top down experience along a scenic road; a rare chance to cruise down the countryside at a generous speed limit, Bond style!
The benefits of hiking are too numerous to mention. It improves mental health and overall well-being; though hiking with friends is even better!
Hiking with the girls strengthens bonds and helps create lasting friendships. Choose a height to hike with your friends; at the peak, you can have a nice picnic to reward everyone for making the climb.
Before you lead a hiking trip, make sure you do adequate research on the climate and weather of the area, transportation, reservations, permits, and any local laws you may need to know.
Keep in mind that not all hikes have to be long and strenuous, and you can always choose a trail that’s not so tough to navigate, or that has a beautiful peak or waterfall at the end.
If you’re planning to spend several days or weeks on your trip, you can ask your girls to go backpacking instead. Backpacking typically involves multi-day overnight hikes while carrying some personal belongings in a backpack.
However, backpacking trips need to be well planned, so before you begin the trip, make sure you learn everything you need to know about backpacking.
Go to a Music Festival
Music festivals are a sure way to have an unforgettable time, especially if you all connect over your love for a particular band or musician.
Good music festivals often draw large crowds, so it’s extremely important to find accommodations before embarking on the trip.
Popular choices for accommodations include pitching a tent on the campgrounds in the area, RVing, renting an Airbnb, or booking a hotel room.
Visit a Food Festival
Food festivals offer a fun and memorable bonding opportunity, and often these may be in your hometown, so you can plan a staycation at a local hotel, for a time sensitive trip.
The New York City Wine & Food Festival, for instance, attracts thousands of fun-seekers annually. There are only two rules for food festivals. The first is to dress comfortably; the second is to be prepared to eat.
There’s never a boring moment at a food festival once you keep an open mind. The fun to be had include tasting different cuisine, some of which will be prepared by your favorite celebrity chefs, attending hands-on classes and seminars, and generally getting to meet and engage with industry leaders.
Going Wine Tasting
What’s a girl’s trip without some wine! (Only, obviously, if all parties involved are old enough to drink it!).
At wine tasting events, you get to try out different wines until you find your favorite. There are a few rules for going wine tasting, but the most important is to keep an open mind (and not drink and drive!)
Wine tasting is a great bonding activity as you get to find out more about your most preferred tastes while having a great time with the girls.
