Girls Vacation Ideas for your Travel Crew

Girls Vacation Ideas for your Travel Crew

I’m not much of a movie person, but as a travel lover, I just HAD to see the movie Girls Trip. Starring Regina Hall, Tiffany Haddish, Jada Pinkett Smith and Queen Latifah, Girls Trip is a comedy of four friends’ adventure in New Orleans during the annual Essence Music Festival weekend. My High School friends and I saw it opening weekend and the movie showed great lessons in self-discovery, bravery, friendship, and more. If you’re in the planning stages for a group vacation, here are some girls vacation ideas to plan with your travel crew.

Girls Vacation ideas for your your travel crew- Party Weekend in Miami

Girls Vacation Ideas: Party Weekend in Miami

Girlfriend Spa Getaways

Who doesn’t love rest and relaxation? Spa vacations are great for moms or busy bees that need a break from the stress of work and life. Spa Vacations don’t always mean facials, massages, and manicures. While these options are popular, many include wellness practices of yoga and clean eating. You can also visit a beach destination that includes spa services in or close to your hotel or resort.

Wine Tastings with the Girls

Wine tastings are a nice option for day or girls weekend getaways. Tours give you the ability to visit several wineries while getting expert knowledge on the wines and wineries. Popular destinations in the U.S. include The Finger Lakes, Napa Valley, and Smoky Hill Vineyards. Before the summer ends, I’ll be heading to North Fork wine country for an all-inclusive tour of the East End’s historic vineyards.

Girl’s Weekend Road Trip

Road trips are fun for spontaneous explorers. You can find a lot of hidden gems from less popular destinations and discover the beauty of a country while driving the open road. The cool thing about road trips is they can be planned in advanced or totally random. They are also a great way to bond with the group. Just make sure there’s more than one driver in the bunch because it can be tiring.

Girl’s Party Weekend

Party weekends are perfect for celebrating spring break, a birthday, graduation, wedding, or divorce. The best thing about partying for your girls weekend away is every city worldwide provides nightlife. Rent a party bus or make sure you have reliable transportation and paint the town red.

Girlfriend’s Cruises

Cruises have it all: food, entertainment, pools and you get to visit a new destination! When you think about it, you can easily fit all of the previous girls’ vacation ideas on a cruise with your friends.

Girls trips are something my friends and I discuss frequently. Since our trip to Thailand, we’ve been to Morocco and are planning for the next few years. Haiti, Bali, Belize, Italy, Iceland, South Africa, going Glamping, taking a cruise to Australia & New Zealand (and jokingly visiting Bora Bora) are just some of the many future girls vacation planned and we can’t wait to visit them all.

I was planning a 10 year reunion girls trip with women from my first international trip to Ghana. Unfortunately the plans fell through, maybe we will try again for next year. I haven’t been on a road trip in a while, that may be fun.

I can see it now, the sequel to Girls trip…”Guys Trip”…haha
I honestly prefer solo travel…but if I were going to take a trip with a group of fellas I’d probably want to do something active like hiking or mountain climbing.

Reply
Joanna E July 27, 2017 - 3:02 PM

Guys Trip would definitely be an experience. I enjoy solo travel too. Nature trips are nice. I did a hike in Barcelona and it was a great experience.

I haven’t done the Girls trip with a crew only ever really two of us at a time. The wine tasting is a great idea. The movie was super funny too!

I didn’t want to see Girl’s Trip at first but I’m so glad I did because I laughed from start to finish. I love your ideas for trips with your girls, especially the ideas of spas and the winery. My idea of a perfect girl trip is somewhere on an island with plenty of drinks and good food and beaches for me to read on. My last girl trip was with 9 other people to Morocco And Portugal!

Interesting topic! Thanks for sharing! I don’t have a group of friends to plan trips or vacations with, but I do hope that one day I can experience a girls night out or a girls trip. I really want to see the movie but I doubt my BF would want to come lol! Thanks for the tips! ❤️

Done several of these with my girlfriends! But a road-trip would be awesome… I’ll have to create a pitch 😉
Also nothing beats a spa weekend!!

A girls trip is something is only did once when I was 18 and I don’t have enough close girl mates to do one again haha ! But I have done a trip with just me and one girl friend which I prefer to a group. Nice blog though! That girls trip movie has only just come out in the UK I think. I should see it !

I love a good road trip! One of my favorite vacations was a road trip through northern Michigan with two of my high school friends. It was the kind of trip where we could just pull off the road when we saw something interesting and take our time doing whatever interested us. I miss having time to do things like that now that we’re all grown/working/some of us married/

Reply
Joanna E August 3, 2017 - 10:39 AM

That sounds great. It’s always good to plan one a few months in advance. I can’t do many random trips with a lot of girlfriends anymore either.

Jewels August 2, 2017 - 9:52 PM

I love road trips with my girls! We’ve taken a few this year. We actually went to Nola in April and we visited a lot of places in Girls Trip!

I LOVED NOLA! I met up with two of my coworkers, but I definitely need to go back with a group of girls.

Wine tasting, what a great idea! I love road trips too but only just passed my test in October last year so first on the list is a cottage/beach holiday next week with my two best mates <3 Some good ideas on this list 🙂

I haven’t done a girls trip, as I prefer to travel alone or with my boyfriend, but if I was going to plan a girls trip this would is useful, because I don’t have a clue about such things! Safe travels.
