If you don’t believe in love at first sight, you’ve clearly never been to California. It’s cool-girl heaven. It’s that long stretch of west coast that makes eyes glisten, teeth bite lips, your skin glisten with the sweet sweat of summer and all you’ll want to do is “dance to remember and dance to forget”. It’s paradise. It’s curved palms and ocean vistas. It’s people wearing flowers in their hair and love in their eyes. It’s the perfect place for cool girls of every kind; beach babes and bohemian chicks, those wanting to enjoy some tinsel town glam and those wanting to enjoy some countryside chic. Did someone say next girls trip?
So, if you’re wondering where to go on your next girls getaway, grab your favorite Panama hat, round up your squad and take to the open road like Thelma & Louise, giving that story the happy ending it deserves. And, to help you out, we’ve pulled together a list of badass destinations that will make your long-weekend getaway absolutely epic:
Spa In Palm Springs
There is no better way to relax, recoup and recharge your batteries than escaping to the desert sun, and nowhere does pampering better than Palm Springs, where every resort will have you slipping into a state of laid-back euphoria you and your gals never knew existed. Magical massages, ayurvedic treatments, mud baths, yoga sessions, saunas, steam rooms, and pools – saltwater pools – all before you end the day right with a glass of something delicious in some hacienda-inspired town. Mmmmm. That’s how to do a spa weekend. You won’t regret a California Spa getaway!
Lick Your Lips In Santa Barbara
Imagine a weekend enjoying wines with the girls you love the most in a place more picturesque than Napa Valley, and a whole lot less pretentious too. That’s how laughs are shared and memories are made; memories that won’t fade for a lifetime. You can just imagine it now. Enjoying a weekend filled with getting up late, breakfast under the hot sun before sipping on more wines & tasting room filled with you and your giggling girls, the late dinners and even later nights becoming the perfect tonic. Oh yeah. This is the perfect getaway for wine-loving girls like me.
Beach, Please! OC-Style.
When you’re looking for a way to seas the day, pin a towel to the white sands with four perfect conch shells and feel the warm waters roll up your shins, there is nowhere better than Orange County. Take your pick; Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Corona Del Mar – it really doesn’t matter which because they all boast a plethora of impossibly pretty villas. How you make memories is totally up to you too. You could simply relax by the pool and catch up with your girlfriends before splashing out on a bit of retail therapy and heading out for some drinks at any of the thousand bars, or you could explore sunny Cali, hop into a classic convertible and drive down the Pacific Coast Highway, destination unknown. This is California dreaming at its very best.
