Girlfriend Getaways

There is nothing better then a time away with girlfriends.

Sometimes a quick weekend trip with besties is just what you need to recharge, laugh until you cry, and reconnect with the ones who know you best.  

All of these recommendations you can take without the need of a passport and direct flights from most major cities.

Fire up that group chat and plan a getaway!

Destination: San Diego

Vibe: Surfs up and Sunsets

Do: You can always count on San Diego for lovely weather, miles of beaches and a laid back vibe.  Days can be spent riding bikes on Coronado and wandering Balboa Park.  Looking for something more active, drive just up the coast to Encinitas and take a surf lesson, followed by dinner and drinks at the Roxy.   

Stay: The timeless Hotel Del Coronado.

Destination: Chicago

Vibe: Cheers to the Third Coast

Do: Shopping in Wicker Park followed by tacos at Big Star.  Drinks in West Loop and Blues at Kingston Mines til the wee hours of the morning.  The Windy City is perfect for a whirlwind getaway that you may need another vacay to recover from.  Don’t worry, there is nothing brunch at Lula Cafe can’t solve.

Stay: Ace Hotel just named to Conde Nast Traveler 2018 Hot List

Destination: Zion

Vibe: Girls Gone Glamping

Do: The National Parks are the ideal destination for active friends looking to get off the grid and explore the beauty of Zion.  Take on the adventure of The Narrows and if you are feeling ambitious, hike to the top of Angels Landing. This incredibly challenging yet rewarding hike will be one more bond between friends.

Stay: Camp under the stars at Under Canvas



Destination: Santa Fe

Vibe: A little spice and Everything Nice

Do: This eclectic Southwest town is a great destination for a low-key weekend.  Spend the morning finding treasures at Vintage Outpost and Shiprock. The afternoon falling in love with the southwest spirit at the Georgia O'Keeffe museum followed by dinner at  local favorite The Shed just off the main square. Wrap the weekend up with a spa day at Ten Thousand Waves to be transported to another place entirely.

Stay: Inn of the Five Graces 



Destination: Miami

Vibe: Havana Nights and Poolside Days

Do: With its Art Deco glam, Miami is THE destination for a retrochic weekend in the sun. Take a day escape to the barrier island Bay Biscayne to explore the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, wander Little Havana, and enjoy rooftop cocktails at Sugar.  But we all know the real scene is pool side, so reserve a cabana and rose´ the day away

Stay: Beach Place Three from Oasis Collections.  Check out the new apartment rental site that allows you to use and earn Hyatt points.  Perfect mix of apartment independence with hotel amenities.
