Amazing Locations For A Girls Only Trip

Offering something for any girlfriend group, amazing locations for a girls only trip are beautiful, exciting, and fun!

By Rowan MarleyPublished 7 years ago 7 min read

Having a girl's weekend is something that is simple in theory, but difficult to put into practice. Ideally, the place you guys go together will be one that is female-friendly, glamorous, and filled with fun things to do that make you feel awesome.

Venues, of course, are a problem. A typical girl's trip might involve brunches, cabins, and maybe camping - but those kinds of venues can only be fun for so long. They get boring, hackneyed, or just downright overrated after a while.

That being said, there are some locations that are excellent choices for even the most varied group of girls - and many of those venues might even be purposefully designed to be female-friendly. They're few and far-between, but they are out there if you know where to look.

We ranked some of the best venues for vacationing with the ladies. Have you been to any of these?

Dominica, Lesser Antilles

This tiny, little known island is also nicknamed "Nature Island" thanks to its rich rainforests, beautiful waterfalls, and natural volcanic spas. As one of the very few locations in the world that has rainforests but remains incredibly safe, Dominica offers a slew of incredible adventures for ladies who want to unleash their inner explorers.

Breathtaking rainforests tours, snorkel-ready waters, and some of the most affordable spas in the world make Dominica an amazing place to journey. In a word, this is the best choice for stylish ladies who want to become one with nature.

Along with having amazing hotels and spas, the tourism industry of Antilles also boasts special women-only tour packages that make things affordable and truly girls-only.

Bangkok, Thailand

Though it may have a slight reputation for having sleazy sides, make no mistake about it, a trip to Bangkok can be a woman's dream come true, too. Here, ladies can enjoy some of the world's most luxurious medi-spas, truly authentic pad Thai, and impressive live shows unlike anything that you've ever seen.

Thailand has a very strong female presence in business, which means that many hotels, restaurants, and spas are owned by women. Needless to say, this means that you can guarantee a certain level of safety when resting up in the right hotel.

New York City, New York

Though there are definitely quite a few places in New York that aren't exactly girl-friendly, we'd be lying if we didn't say that NYC offers a huge range of amazingly fun things to do with the ladies. In fact, there are some tour ideas that are basically classic girls' weekend itineraries among travelers from around the world.

We'd suggest starting off with a Broadway musical, then hitting a fine restaurant, then hitting up a club - and that'd just be the first day! If you have time the next morning, unwinding at one of the city's myriad spas would probably be the most glamorous way to nurse that hangover.

Seriously, though. The sky is legitimately the limit in New York.

Las Vegas, Nevada

Vegas is one of the few cities that allows both men and women to cut loose - and whatever happens there, tends to stay there. If you're looking for one of those kinds of trips that really pushes the limit on how wild and crazy you can be, then Vegas is your best bet.

Along with casinos, ladies who check out this place can find killer nightclubs, great restaurants, stellar spas...and some of the cutest male strippers you could imagine. Just be careful here; people tend to lose sight of how much money they're spending when in this town.

Grand Bahama, The Bahamas

Looking for a classic island getaway? The Bahamas have become somewhat of a staple in the tourism world because of the wonderful weather, the crystal clear water, and the awesome hotels in the area. Simply put, the Bahamas have locations that are basically designed for dream vacations - and that makes their biggest island a great pick for girl getaways.

If you're looking for a location that allows you to feel like a millionaire on a cruise, you're in luck. Cruise ships sail directly to the Bahamas all the time, and most of them have amenities that make them comparable to upscale luxury malls.

If you do go, make sure to wear sunscreen. The sun is deceptively strong here!

The Hideout Lodge, Wyoming

Women who want to see the West in luxury will love The Hideout - a luxury working cattle ranch that overlooks the Shell Mountains. This rustic dude ranch has amazingly homey accommodations, world class food, amazing drinks, and basically is a town in and of itself.

Along with great amenities, visitors at the Hideout get to choose from a very wide array of different activities. Horseback riding, fly fishing, and trapshooting are just a small hint of what you can experience here.

It's worth noting that they've had such great success with female clients that the ranch has also started to have Girls Weekend specials to cater to all the girl gangs they've gotten.

Walt Disney World, Florida

If there's one thing that most girls adore, it's Disney movies. So, why not actually take a trip out to the Happiest Place On Earth and let your inner Disney princess out?

Even though it may be one of the very few locations on this list that doesn't involve loads of liquor, we can't help but feel like a girls' excursion at Disney is a brilliant idea. They have rides, awesome restaurants, real Disney princesse - oh, and they also have spas, too.

With all the fun there, do you really need liquor, anyway?

Harajuku District, Japan

If you're a fashion fanatic, then you already know why this location is on this list. It's Tokyo's hottest fashion district, and happens to a major shopping vacation destination for the trendiest people in the world. Going to Tokyo's Harajuku District means that you are going to get to check out the coolest fashions before they even make it to the US.

Many J-pop stars hang out at Harajuku, so if you love J-pop, you might be happy to see your favorite idols here. Additionally, there are plenty of spas in the area that make it possible to look good while running into a cutie here.

It's also worth noting that Harajuku has a lot of "host cafes," so you can spend some quality time chatting up gorgeous Japanese male models if you so choose. So, it's not like you can't get a little flirtatious and fun on that level here, too.

Ocean City, Maryland

Ocean City is the perennial beach town - and that's why so many women love going there for weekend trips. There's a little bit of something for everyone here. Bars are there for girls who need a cool pint of DuClaw, mini-golf is there for girls looking for a low stress sport, while the ocean is there for ladies who just want to hit the beach.

As a classic resort town, it's hard not to fall in love with Ocean City's charm. The best part about this location is that it's actually the cheapest of the bunch - making it an affordable getaway for any budget.

Napa Valley, California

Oh, Napa Valley - you are the center of American winemaking, and that's why we love you. This town has more vineyards than anywhere else in the United States, and has become a globally renowned hotspot for incredible wines and equally amazing food. Between the breathtaking vineyards and the dizzying number of wines, it's a glutton's dream come true.

But, there's also stuff for health aficionados as well. Napa Valley has also gained a reputation for their awesome Yoga-Wine vacations. So, if you don't want to totally veg out and drink, going to one of these spa-style retreats is a great way to kick it in Napa Valley.
