Making memories together is one of the things you and your best girls do best. That's why you want the right destination for your next girls' getaway — a place where you'll have an unforgettable experience. These top regional destinations offer plenty of scenery, nightlife, dining, and shopping to please everyone in the crowd.
You don't have to be a history buff to enjoy a weekend in Boston. The city has plenty of experience (400+ years) operating as a cultural center. Among the narrow streets, public squares, and historical landmarks lies a vibrant, diverse community. Here you'll find some of the nation's top museums, galleries, restaurants, and more all waiting for you and your girls to visit.
Stroll through the Seaport District and stop for a drink with a view at a rooftop bar, check out the Institute of Contemporary Art or listen to live music. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery at the Public Garden and take a ride in one of the city's famous swan boats. Then, treat yourselves to a late lunch and afternoon tea (including tea-infused cocktails) at the Boston Public Library before a night out in the Theater District.
Must-see Boston: Step back in time and walk the Freedom Trail. This 2.5-mile red line connects 16 historic sites that tell the story of the American Revolution. Stops include the Paul Revere House, Old North Church, and the Bunker Hill Monument.
The Windy City may be known for its sports teams and deep-dish pizza, but you and the gals will quickly discover it's second to none. Here you'll find top-rated museums, towering skyscrapers, rooftops with stunning views of the city, and some of the finest collections of public art in the country. In short, there's something for everyone here.
While you're in town, stroll the Chicago Riverwalk where you can explore public gardens and take a boat tour or spend the afternoon relaxing in a traditional bathhouse. Check out Millennium Park and the city's iconic "Bean" sculpture before you grab a slice of deep-dish pizza at Giordano's and drinks at Time Out Market Bar. Then stop for a quick rest at your hotel before the squad heads out for a show at Second City or Untitled Supper Club.
Must-see Chicago: Shop 'til you drop along the Magnificent Mile, a 13-block stretch of department stores (including Nordstrom's flagship store), three multistory malls, and boutiques. This is retail therapy at its finest.
When you need a getaway where you can let it all out and glam it up, Las Vegas is your place. It's flashy, fast-paced, and unashamed of its reputation. From the hustle and bustle of The Strip to the stunning scenery on the outskirts of town, you and your squad will find plenty to do for everyone in the group. Best of all, the iconic jewel of the desert will keep all of your secrets — as long as you keep them off your Instagram stories.
You can easily spend your entire time in Vegas exploring the hotels and museums. Where else can you stroll through ancient Rome and Egypt, Venice, and New York City, or get up close and personal with the city all in a single weekend?
If you and the girls prefer a quieter spot for some bonding time, head out to Red Rock Canyon for a hike or spend the afternoon in one of the city's posh spas. Or put on your best little black dress and dance the night away in the Chandelier Bar at the Cosmopolitan or Omnia at Caesars Palace. End the night at The Peppermill, where you can slide into a red velvet booth for a late-night omelet.
Must-see Las Vegas: Play a game in a casino just for fun. Give yourself some spending money and try a slot machine, roulette wheel, or blackjack table. Whether you win or lose, you'll experience the thrill of possibility in the city's most recognizable attractions.
Coastal charm drapes Savannah like the Spanish moss in oak trees. Steeped in history, stunning architecture, and Southern hospitality, Savannah beckons you to slow down and unwind. Just bring your camera everywhere you go. The cobblestone streets, historic squares, and eclectic art displays are the perfect backdrops for Instagram-worthy posts to show off for friends back home.
Start the day with a leisurely brunch at Collins Quarter (try the lavender mocha!), where you can connect with one another and plan the day. Tour the city on the Savannah Slow Ride. You can sip on your favorite beverage and work off your brunch calories. End the day with a night of bar-hopping or ghost tours through historic cemeteries. While you're in town, get your fix of sand and saltwater on Tybee Island as you enjoy steamed seafood, fish tacos, and cold drinks on the beach.
Must-see Savannah: Stop by the Savannah City Market for an eclectic cultural experience. This is the spot to check out work from emerging artists, pick up a locally produced souvenir in one of the galleries or shops, and jam out to live music.
