Take 10 Tuesday: US Girlfriend Getaway Destinations

Spring Break can be a great time to soak up the sun, stay up all night and party your week away. It can also be time for groups of girls to run away and escape together. Maybe you’ve outgrown some of your usual grounds and are looking for a new place to escape. Nearly a quarter of the ladies have taken a girlfriend getaway and many more are discovering why these trips are so fabulous. Between the clubs, the nightlife, the shopping, or just the company, girlfriend getaways will only become more popular in years to come. If you’re looking for a place to escape with a group of girls, check out these top picks by HotelsCombined.com.

8. New York City, New York: Ace Hotel

We’re detouring slightly off our original list for a newer spot in New York City. The rooms at Ace Hotel are small and reminiscent of a dorm room but also right in the heart of Manhattan with subway stops nearby that can take you anywhere in the city.  You’ll also be within walking distance of Times Square and many of the Broadway theatres. If you want to go shopping, start at 34th Street and work your way out. You’ll find many shops to spend all your money at, including the flagship Macy’s.

This is a relaxing place for a more mature crowd. The Inn on Biltmore Estate is on-site at the Biltmore Estate, a mansion on the grounds of a winery.

You’ll have access to visit the Biltmore house and gardens and you can stop by the house’s bake shop and ice cream parlour. Meanwhile, the Antler Hill Village and Winery offers a wine bar and tastings, more dining options, shops, and outdoor activities.

Rent a bike and head across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito and try their Italian treats.
