Girlfriend getaways have become increasingly popular. Whether it’s heading down the highway or soaking at a spa, time spent with the girls can restore sanity and create memories that are certain to be some of the best moments of your life. Getting away from the everyday pressures of being “everything to everyone” is just the ticket to revitalize and rekindle valuable old relationships, create new friendships, and remind yourself that sometimes girls just want to have fun.

The time and energy it takes to find the perfect location, book flights, hotels, and theatre tickets, and plan sightseeing can be overwhelming and adds one more thing to your already overflowing list of “to dos.” Luckily, now all you have to do is choose the spot. Whether you’re looking for a destination close to home or somewhere far away, the perfect escape from it all is available just for the asking through AAA Exclusive Getaway packages.

You and your girlfriends can put your diets on hold and explore the legendary cuisine of New Orleans, famous for its French bistros and exquisite Nouveau Creole dining. Stroll through the French Quarter and sample the handcrafted chocolates and one-of-a-kind pastry masterpieces from the Sucre’ shops. Take a cooking class and discover new dishes to dazzle your dinner guests back home. Listen to the best jazz around when you spend the evening enjoying the music and magic of Bourbon Street.

If a visit to the wine country sounds inviting, consider spending a few days in beautiful Northern California experiencing the wineries of the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. The scenery is absolutely magnificent, and the wines are considered to be some of the best in the world. It’s the perfect place to relax with your friends and enjoy a taste of “the good life.” Be sure to ship a case of your favorite vintage home so you can savor the wine and memories when you return renewed, refreshed, and reenergized.

If the plan is to shop till you drop, then Chicago might just be the answer. Or, if just being pampered has the majority vote, then indulging in the ultimate of spa treatments at the Red Door in New York is guaranteed to de-stress and invigorate your spirit.

Fortunately, the perfect getaway vacation isn’t seasonal. You can find AAA Exclusive Getaway pre-planned packages to suit everyone’s schedules and tastes during any time of the year. So, when it gets to the point that a night out with the girls just doesn’t do it anymore, then consider a few days away. You’ll be glad you did.
