A Girlfriend's Getaway Weekend is a short vacation in which husbands, boyfriends, children, and the like are not included. A Girlfriend's Getaway Weekend is becoming a synonym with girl empowerment, and more and more women are now going on trips that test their physical and mental limits.

A Girlfriend's Getaway Weekend is usually organized among women who know each other and have a history together. Many of them live in different parts of the country and don't get to see each other often, so a Girlfriend's Getaway Weekend is the perfect opportunity to reconnect, share experiences and ideas, and create new memories. Sometimes bringing "guests" to the trip is encouraged, in an effort to enlarge the circle. A Girlfriend's Getaway Weekend is based on the idea that women need time to reconnect with themselves and escape the daily grind of work, family, and city stress.

This is one of the main reasons that a Girlfriend's Getaway Weekend often includes trips to the country. Many women chose to rent a cabin and enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, while others go together to spa getaways to rejuvenate and be pampered. Some women have a Girlfriend's Getaway Weekend far away from home, while others decide to stay within driving distance. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to choosing a destination, but some popular options include: mountain cabins or cottages, beach bungalows, luxury spa resorts, and adventure trips such as whitewater rafting or camping.

Road trips are also becoming a popular way to enjoy a Girlfriend's Getaway Weekend. Route 66 and the California's Pacific Coast Highway are popular choices, but just any scenic route will do. Road trips are a great way to feel young again without the pressure of having to sleep in cheap motels because you're living on a student's budget. You can think of it as the luxury version of a road trip.

Wherever you decide, a Girlfriend's Getaway Weekend is a great way to reconnect with old friends and enjoy some "me" and "us" time without the interruptions of "real life."
