Planning a girls’ getaway? Add these activities to your itinerary

When the stars finally align and you and your closest girlfriends’ schedules and lifestyles allow for a girls’ getaway, you want to make the most of it.

Those rare times spent together are an opportunity to make memories that will last a lifetime, but if you want to get the most out of your break, it does require a little pre-planning.

If a girls’ getaway is on the cards in the not-too-distant future, here are some fun and unique ideas of things to include on the itinerary that will make your trip one to remember.

Go on a hike

Okay, so not everyone is outdoorsy, but if you do feel up to it, a nature hike is a great way to take in some beautiful scenery and fresh air while also getting some exercise in.

Whether you’re in the mountains, by the ocean or in the countryside, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find some great hiking opportunities that aren’t too far away from your accommodation.

Check out the local food spots

Sampling the local fare should always be high on the agenda for any girls’ trip.

Make sure to do your research in advance to find out what the must-try venues and dishes are in the area you’re visiting.

Once you have a list, work out what most appeals to the majority of the group, and remember to make your reservations early so you don’t find yourself disappointed at the eleventh hour.

Relive your childhood

For most of us, the older we get, the more serious we get — so a girls’ trip is a great opportunity to shake things up and revert back to your yesteryear, remembering the carefree days of your childhood.

Try out some theme parks, go for a trail ride on horseback, floor it with some go-karting, or play a round of putt-putt golf. There’s guaranteed to be plenty of laughs and good times!
