5 Getaways for A Girls-Only Escape

A good friend listens to your adventures. A best friend makes them with you. And

according to Thelma & Louise, “Sometimes all you need is a great friend and a tank of gas.”

This one goes out to the ladies who love a great escape with great gal pals.

Need some inspiration for planning your next girlfriend getaway? Here are five hot spots

for girls who golf, city-loving ladies, female foodies, beach-obsessed babes, and

wonder-seeking women. Each destination offers something special and sacred for a

girls-only escape.

For girls who golf

Surrounded by the Catalina Mountains sits Omni Tucson National Resort, a golf-infused

getaway. The property is a PGA Tour favorite and attracts pros from around the world.

Flaunting two desert-infused picturesque golf courses, the Sonoran and Catalina, the

Omni offers plenty of golf packages that will have you playing par. After a round,

celebrate your swings over a spiked milkshake at Legends Bar & Grill, or reward

yourself with a massage at the new Mokara Spa. The resort recently underwent a multi-

million-dollar renovation resulting in spacious haciendas to accommodate gal-pals. Do

dinner at Bob’s Steak & Chophouse and be sure to order a Smoked Paloma (upgrade

the drink for a tableside presentation and pouring for four).

For city-loving ladies

Inspired by the beauty and the energy of the city, The Ritz-Carlton, Denver is the most

luxe spot for city-loving ladies visiting the Mile High City. The property recently

revamped its Presidential Suite boasting plenty of space and amenities for a traveling

girl’s group. The Suite is designed with homey amenities; a personal fitness space (with

a Peloton), a full kitchen with cooking range, and a living space to host guests. They

also offer a private chef experience, or you can dine at ELWAY’S, the steakhouse

located on the Plaza Level. Experience the city by visiting the Denver Art Museum, the

esteemed Cherry Creek shopping district, or check out the area’s Beer Spa which offers

brew-inspired spa packages. You can also reserve a spot at The Inventing Room Dessert

Shop which creates magical & seemingly impossible treats thanks to “sugar science.”

For female foodies

The San Diego-based mecca of all things yummy are in the heart of Little Italy nestled

between the downtown core and San Diego's glistening waterfront. Packed with patio cafés, restaurants, pubs, art galleries, and shops, this district is truly a San Diego

gem. Featuring the most charming piazza, a 10,000 square-foot Italian-inspired

pedestrian-only space, you’ll find yourself relaxing by the fountain or listening to live music. Stroll through the impressive Farmers’ Market every Saturday and Wednesday,

year-round and treat your pallet to the best in brunch, lunch, and dinner. Topping my list

for dining hot spots include Barbusa, a culinary project by the well-known Busalacchi

family, and favorite among SoCal celebs. Barbusa offers authentic Modern Sicilian

Cuisine with flare; artisan pizzas, handmade pasta, and seafood-centric dishes. Ironside

Fish & Oyster Bar is another go-to positioned in a renovated warehouse with quirky,

nautical design accents and happy hour specials on oysters and drinks. For a nationally

recognized brunch menu, check out Little Italy’s Farmer’s Table, complete with 10-

pound Bloody Marys as featured on the Food Network.

For beach-obsessed babes

Elevate your Orange County escape at Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa, a beach-

chic hotel overlooking the dazzling Pacific Ocean. Located near Doheny State Beach,

Dana Point Harbor and Laguna Beach, the resort offers modern rooms and suites,

multiple pools, a full fitness center and on-site spa to delight in specialty treatments and

striking views of Dana Point. When hunger strikes, visit the resort’s OverVue lounge for

tapas and cocktails, or utilize Laguna Beach’s free trolly services shuttling you to town

for dining, shopping and more.

For wonderous women

For ladies seeking adventure and a trip immersed in the great outdoors, visit some of

the nation’s most esteemed national parks. Escape to the fancy Four Seasons in

Jackson Hole, Wyoming, neighboring the Grand Tetons. At Grand Teton National Park,

take the breezy stroll around Jackson Lake and hike Cascade Canyon (just keep your

peepers peeled for moose!). You’ll be surrounded by your besties and towering

mountains, a perfect spot to slap an inspirational quote on Instagram before a

refreshing splash in a chilled mountain lake. You can also daytrip to Yellowstone, where

you’ll witness Old Faithful erupt amidst the world’s largest concentration of geysers.

Also in the area, plenty of action-packed adventures: river rafting, horseback riding, and

an abundance of wildlife tours.
