4 Girlfriend Getaways For When You Want Some Quality Time With Your Besties


Calling all girl squads! September is International Women’s Friendship Month, AKA 30 days to celebrate the wonderful women in your life. That means it’s the perfect time to get out of town with your besties. We like these four destinations for a ladies weekend because, well, what’s a girls’ trip without a little indulgence?

1. Nashville

The Cinnamon Bun, The Cookie Monster, and The Boy Scout! Which Waffle Mondae is your favorite??

In Music City, you’ll get country music, delish food and a great Airbnb market. To split a place with four friends, you’ll pay between $30 and $60 per person for a stylish loft or condo. And because ladies weekends have no calories, have a decadent dessert waffle at The Soda Parlor. The Cinnamon Bun ($8) is a cinnamon Belgian waffle, praline ice cream, cookie butter, caramel syrup and pecans. Leslie Knope would be proud.

2. San Francisco And Napa Valley

We love the idea of combining a San Francisco weekend with some Napa wine. If you do a little bit of research, you can find tastings for $15 to $30 (we’re looking at you, Napa Cellars!) and have plenty of money left for a nice dinner closer to the city so no one is stuck as the designated driver. San Fran Airbnbs average at just under $100 per person for 4 people.

3. Portland

We like the East Coast Portland for September. Just 2o minutes away from the endearing Maine city (can you say lobster rolls?), you’ll find amazing views of the fall foliage in Bradbury Mountain State Park. Or take a brisk walk along the coast. Of course, you’ll want to make a pit stop at Portland’s favorite Holy Donut for some hot-off-the-presses, Instagramable treats. Airbnbs are in the $70 per person range for a girls’ trip split four ways.

4. Savannah

let's go back

You and the girls can rent a cute Victorian cottage in Savannah for around $35 per person, just around the corner from sweeping southern mansions. And unlike the stuffy big city, you can wander around the historic town while sipping your drink of choice. Wet Willie’s on the River Walk is famous for its boozy slushies, so throw it back to your favorite childhood flavor combos with some additional adult beverages.
