Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

It’s always a great time to plan a girls’ getaway with your sisters, friends, co-workers or neighbors. Every girl needs time away with her besties, so we’ve made our list of top girlfriend getaways perfect for a summer or fall vacation.

The consistent top choice for girls’ getaways is Riviera Maya in Mexico, just about 45 minutes from Cancun International Airport. Hop on a 6:00 a.m. charter flight from St. Louis and be on the beach by early afternoon. Our favorite all-inclusive resorts include all meals, drinks, non-motorized water sports and some even include spa services for the ultimate pampering girls’ getaway.

If you and your girls are itching to cruise, several lines, including Norwegian and Royal Caribbean, offer shorter three-night trips to the Bahamas from ports in Florida. If you have the time and an adventurous spirit, a river cruise will take you into cities all over the world that are impossible to see by traditional cruise ship.

A weekend trip to New York City is always a great way to celebrate your friendship. Treat yourself and the girls to afternoon tea at one of the city’s iconic luxury hotels. Or take in the New York Botanical Garden, shopping in Chinatown and a Broadway show.

A fun, relaxing weekend of sightseeing in San Francisco paired with a trip on the Napa Valley Wine Train is one of our most asked-about girls’ getaways. The 3-hour ride travels past California’s vineyards and comes complete with a multi-course gourmet meal that includes, of course, a wine tasting.

A girls’ trip to Paris?  Of course!  The French capital is a beautiful place to visit any time of year. Visitors should be sure to take in the spectacular view from the top of the Eiffel Tower, the magnificent Notre Dame Cathedral and the priceless works of art on display at the Louvre, including the Mona Lisa. Be sure to leave time for people-watching from a café, as well as strolling through the city’s parks and along its boulevards. Louis XIV’s elegant Palace of Versailles, a short train ride away, is a perfect day trip.
