Lifelong friendships are made during school and college days and a girls’ getaway weekend is the perfect way to meet up and catch up on news with old friends. Georgia is easy to reach, mild all year round and there are plenty of accomodations to choose in the city or right on the beach.
Inspirational Girls’ Getaway Weekend Ideas
It is usually a special event or occasion that prompts someone (possibly you!) to think about organizing a reunion of long-term girlfriends. Whether you still live in the same town or have scattered further afield, a girls’ getaway weekend is sure to be a fun, relaxing break.
You may wish to celebrate a special birthday year and gather together for a joint celebration of your 30th, 40th or other milestone birthday. Another good excuse for a girlie getaway is to celebrate a forthcoming marriage.
Hire a luxury mansion, such as the Wedding Cake Mansion in Savannah, and plan a bridal shower to remember! Everyone can contribute to a bumper feast, or organize a chef to cater for your special celebratory meal. That way no-one has to worry about driving, and the party can run as late as you choose.
Things to Do on a Themed Girls’ Getaway Weekend
Themed weekends are popular for girls’ weekend getaways. Make it a beach-themed weekend and stay in a beautifully restored beachfront condo or penthouse overlooking the beautiful sands of Tybee Island beach. It’s the perfect place to relax and chill out in summer, or take long walks and leisurely lunches during the cheaper low season.
Tybee Island is a great place to get around by bicycle as a group. Climb the historic lighthouse or look for turtles and wildlife in Tybee’s wetlands sanctuary. You’ll find plenty to see and do on this laid-back Georgia island.
Savannah, GA is the perfect destination for a history-themed girls’ getaway. Organize a private walking tour or a horse and carriage ride as part of your getaway treat. It’s also a great city for golf, shopping, dining and spas!
Visiting one of the historic plantation homes around Savannah can take up a whole day as you wander around the gardens chatting, tour the property with a guide and enjoy refreshments in the café or restaurant.
Wormsloe Plantation is one of Georgia’s most historic gems with its colonial history and tabby ruins. Enjoy exploring the nature trail, museum and theater and pick up inexpensive souvenirs for all the girls in the gift shop.
Relax and De-Stress on Your Girls-Only Getaway
If you still need persuading that a girls’ getaway weekend is for you, then consider the fact that studies show that getting away with other women is actually good for your health. When women socialize, they produce a hormone called oxytocin which quells stress, lowers blood pressure and strengthens the immune system.
A weekend without the children, husbands, partners, family dependents, work and worry is a wonderful way to laugh, have fun and relax. That’s what friends are for, and that why a girls’ getaway weekend in Georgia is a great idea!
