If you’re looking to pamper yourself with a little TLC, it’s always way more fun to do it with your best girlfriends. Relax, reminisce, and reconnect when you indulge in any one of these weekend getaways near DC just for gals.
Relax in style with a two-night stay at this 340-acre resort just an hour outside the capital city. “The First Ladies” getaway is a must for girlfriends who want to add some class to their weekend away. Enjoy chilled wines upon arrival, a Crushed Cabernet 80-minute spa treatment, and Stress Burner Yoga or Happy Hour Yoga to really take the edge off. 500 N. Pendleton St., Middleburg, VA, 540-751-3160
While the activities outlined for the four day girls’ trip at Nemacolin focus a lot on holistic healing and restoration, there’s still a lot of wining and dining thrown in for good measure. Once you’ve fully relaxed in the infrared sauna, participated in a private guided meditation, and relaxed with a hot stone massage, crank up the volume with a night out at the resort’s casino after you’ve sipped and savored all the flavors at any one of the gourmet restaurants. 1001 Lafayette Dr., Farmington, PA, 866-344-6957
For a truly memorable trip where you and your gals can escape the hustle and bustle of the city, opt for this luxurious package in Maryland that’s all about food, friends, and fun. Spend one night or even a whole week indulging in outdoor adventures, rejuvenating day spa treatments, world class dining, spectacular views from a beautiful room, and top notch room service at your beck and call. 2700 Turf Valley Road, Ellicott City, MD, 410-465-1500
Ladies who wine together, stick together. Spend your Saturday with the women you love touring two premiere Loudon County wineries in Northern Virginia and enjoy deluxe accommodations at this award-winning resort upon your return. Be sure to take in the scenic views of the Potomac River while you tuck into a delicious breakfast the following day. 44050 Woodridge Pkwy., Leesburg, VA, 877-513-8400
If you and your friends love to be out and about, a stay at this charming inn, housed in a restored historic mansion, is just for you. This girls’ weekend away allows you to explore all that the Shenandoah Valley has to offer with vineyard tours, hiking, skiing, and shopping in Harrisonburg’s downtown historic district.
