Boys, beers, and basketball. That pretty much sums up ‘March Madness.’ Guys crowd their local pubs or gather at their friend’s place for chips, Budweisers and victorious back slaps. But, girls, you don’t have to be left out of this month’s revelry. Gather up your best gal pals and make a fast break for a girlfriends’ getaway.
While the boys are drinking beers at the bar, you will be sipping martinis by the pool. And, instead of throwing high fives, you can indulge in mani-pedis. What about a weekend of downward dogs and organic eating with your girlfriends? At The Stanford Inn By the Sea, a Mendocino, CA, bed and breakfast inn you can start your day with a centering yoga class followed by a deep tissue massage to soothe any tired muscles. Learn about nutritious cooking during a seminar at the inn and savor vegetarian and vegan meals at The Ravens’ Restaurant located on-site. Calling all “damsels in d-stress:” a pajama party blowout awaits you and your best friends at the Inn at Harbour Ridge located in Osage Beach, MO. Start the weekend off right with complimentary wine, appetizers and dessert followed by your choice of the Neat Feet Party pedicure event, Poppin’ Peepers and a Pretty Pout eye makeup consultation, or the Pajama Party nighttime skincare lesson.
Remember the carefree weekend slumber parties of the past with your best friends? You can relive those memories at the Queen Anne Guest House located in Galena, IL. Lay back and relax with one of your favorite movies as you indulge in the 3 P’s: pizza, pop and popcorn! You could even sing a song to the good ol’ days courtesy of the inn’s karaoke machine. Looking for a chic, modern country hideaway to escape all together? The Inn at English Meadows, a Kennebunk, ME, bed and breakfast inn, can create an ultra-special weekend for you and your girls including a day of shopping at nearby Dock Square at Kennebunkport followed by afternoon tea at the inn. Later, gather around the gas fireplace in your guest suite for a toast courtesy of the innkeeper’s private collection before painting the town pink.
Don’t get mad at March, girls, get even. Make this a month for reconnecting with your good friends and leaving the guys glued to the TV screen.
