Leave winter behind and embrace the changing of the seasons with a girls’ getaway trip. While all vacations are great, nothing quite compares to a trip with your best girlfriends. So pack your bags and head to some of these fantastic destinations for a spring getaway you all are sure to remember.
For girls who love hiking, spring is an ideal time of the year to hit the trails. It’s not as hot as the summer, and the temps are milder than winter, so it’s one of the best times of the year for a hiking trip with the girls. Just be sure to pack some lightweight, packable jackets just in case temperatures dip or a little rain comes along. Wondering where to go? While there are incredible hiking and national parks across the country, one of our top picks for a late spring hiking trip is Aspen, Colorado. You may be able to catch the spring blossoms coming up and the famous aspen trees budding.
If you and your girls are die-hard skiers and aren’t quite ready to put away your winter snow boots just yet, consider taking a spring getaway that will let you enjoy the last of the snow. While not everywhere offers spring skiing, late-season ski trips are definitely a thing. Top ski destinations such as Arapahoe Basin in Colorado, Sun Valley in Idaho, and Whistler Blackcomb in Canada are still powdery into the spring.
If you’re keen to escape the winter cold and start working on that summer tan, a beach getaway with the girls might be just what you’re looking for. Even if you live in the northern part of the country, a plane ride to a sunny beach is only a handful of hours away. Pull out the swimsuits and beach dresses and bid winter farewell in style. International destinations such as Mexico and the Caribbean are not too far away, but you can also stay domestic and check out Florida and Southern California. San Diego in California and Delray in Florida make fun and warm spring beach getaway destinations for you and the girls.
If winter has really got you and you need a serious escape, perhaps Europe is calling. A trip to Europe can make an amazing girls’ trip because of the culture, food, and historical landmarks. In the spring, it’s especially nice to see the fields of lavender in France, tulips blossoming in the Netherlands, or explore the incredible cities of Italy. To be sure, Tuscany in Italy is one of our top picks for fun spring girls’ getaways. Sip wine, eat pasta, and stay in a medieval villa with your best friends before the heat of summer sets in.
A girls’ trip to the big city can be one of the most fun experiences you’ll share. And spring is the perfect time of year to explore cities, as it’s not sweltering like summer and not blistering cold like in the winter. The United States has several incredible, world-famous cities to explore with your besties, such as New York City, San Francisco, Savannah, and Charleston. Pack some of your best walking shoes and cutest dresses and get ready to hit the town.
If you and your girls are down for an adventure, there’s nothing quite like a road trip with your best friends. Springtime can be a refreshing time to hit the road and go on an adventure. Road trips are also a great and more affordable alternative to flying, especially if there’s a group of you going. Check out your local region’s best road-trip routes to get some inspiration of sites to see, things to do, and places to visit together. Some top picks for spring road trips are Joshua Tree in California, the Florida Keys, Grand Teton National Park, and any coastal road.
If you love the great outdoors, take your girls on a getaway to enjoy all this beautiful country has to offer in the way of nature. The US has so many national and state parks that it’s difficult to know where to start. But if you plan on a camping trip with the ladies, make sure you check the weather and are prepared for whatever climate you’re planning on camping in. We recommend heading south for spring camping trips and checking out places like the Grand Canyon National Park, Bryce Canyon in Utah, Joshua Tree in California, and the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. A getaway with the girls can be an unforgettable experience. Especially in the spring after a cold winter, nothing soothes the soul more than some laughs and fun with your best friends. Plan a getaway this spring with some of these great ideas.
