4 Great Ideas for a Girlfriend Getaway

From “glamping” outdoors to wine tasting and enjoying good food and conversation, now is the perfect time to start planning your girlfriends’ getaway. With the summer season right around the corner, there are plenty of hotels offering unique girlfriend getaway packages. Of course girlfriends are always more concerned with who is traveling, than where, so choose your destination wisely and make sure you consider the diverse interest of your friends. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Gone “Glamping”
Falling Waters Adventure Resort
North Carolina

If you love the idea of sitting around a campfire, but you’re not a fan of getting your nights rest in a sleeping bag and using the bathroom outdoors, glamping may be the perfect option for you. Glamping is a luxury term used to describe the combination of the great outdoors and glamorous comforts of home.

Situated in the Great Smokey Mountains of North Carolina, The Falling Water Adventure Resort offers a series of water activities and luxury glamping accommodations. There are 3 bedroom luxury cabins, cottages and “yurts” —big round tents with wooden lattice frames, available for travelers.
