Like the song goes, “Girls just want to have fun.” Ladies weekend trips are growing in popularity as women appreciate some much-deserved bonding time with their besties.
A 2021 article in the Washington Post notes that “girlfriend travel” generates social support that becomes invaluable in times of stress. Ladies weekend trips are supposed to be special. That is why many women are choosing to start and end that trip in luxury aboard one of Elite Jets’ private jets:
Looking for ideas? Below are five destinations that are popular for ladies weekend trips:
Shopping on Fifth Avenue
The best shopping street in Naples is Fifth Avenue South, but Fifth Avenue in New York City is a true shopper’s paradise. The list of retail stores on Fifth Avenue is a who’s who of fashion: Chanel, Prada, Gucci, Tiffany, Louis Vuitton and many more. With a trendy new outfit and handbag, it’s time to venture a few blocks over to catch a Broadway show.
Sipping Wines in Napa Valley
Just outside San Francisco, “wine country” encompasses Napa and Sonoma valleys. Collectively, the region has more than 800 wineries, many of which welcome wine tourism. Wineries offer tastings and behind-the-scenes tours of fields, caves and wine cellars. For special events, wineries partner with local farm-to-table restaurants and chefs to create a magical ladies weekend.
Spa Retreat in Vail
Colorado is known for its numerous ski resorts, and Vail certainly has some of the best. Surrounded by natural beauty, Vail has become a spa destination for those seeking to relax, rejuvenate and indulge in their own health and wellness. Massages, facials, oxygen bars, nutritional cleansings and other female-focused services offer pampering and a respite from daily routines.
Hilton Head Beach Retreat
Beach retreats require more than just sand and water. Hilton Head’s white sand beaches, brilliant sunshine and blue-tinged surf look amazing on postcards. Stepping away from the coastline can reveal additional treasures: bike trails, wildlife refuges, outdoor sports, spas, galleries and endless shopping. The island’s laid-back atmosphere and Southern hospitality make it perfect for a ladies weekend trip.
South Beach by Helicopter
Helicopters fly at lower altitudes than jets, which turns a cross-state flight to South Beach into an eco-tour over the Florida Everglades. Affluent individuals frequent South Beach to be seen, so arriving in a helicopter creates a grand first impression. Once on the ground, visitors can charter yachts for sightseeing trips, take a culinary tour down A1A or simply people-watch on the beach.
