Girlie weekend ideas

Updated November 21, 2016

Girls' weekends can be as simple as a get-together at one person's house or as elaborate as a weekend out of town. The goal of a girlie weekend is to stick with girl-centred activities that are suited for girls-only groups. Choosing between girlie weekend ideas is done by determining the budget available to spend and the time everyone can invest in the event.

Atlantic City

Atlantic City in New Jersey can play host to a girls' weekend away. Atlantic City is located approximately one hour from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and two hours from New York City, which makes it a convenient location for many East Coast residents. Atlantic City has casinos, resorts, a boardwalk, restaurants, spas and shopping. Take advantage of the girls' getaway package offered by the Tropicana Resort and Casino, which is located right on the boardwalk. The Tropicana promotes girls' weekends that can be held right at the casino and resort where there are bars, nightclubs, spas, shopping and gambling all under one roof.

New York City

New York City is a travel destination that would be ideal for a girls' weekend away on the East Coast. There is a variety of lodging, dining, shopping and entertainment options, making it easy to plan a girls' weekend in the city based on every budget. The Paramount Hotel, located in Times Square, is one of many hotels that caters to girls' weekends. Its weekend package pays homage to the popular New York City-based show "Sex and the City." The package includes lodging, a "Sex and the City" tour of spots profiled in the show and movie, a four-hour shopping trip to some of New York's most notorious stores with a shopping assistant serving as a tour guide, and theatre tickets to a Broadway show.

Stay-at-Home Retreats

For the budget-conscious, a girlie weekend can be hosted at the home of one of the girls. You could make a stay-at-home, girls-only spa party. Purchase an assortment of spa-quality products available for home use to have a party for practicing and trying out new products. Invite a group of girls over, have a sleepover and have makeovers and spa sessions with one another. You could also have everyone bring a dish along or purchase ingredients and practice trying out new recipes for food and drinks. Set the girlie mood by playing music chosen by the girls attending. Make childhood slumber parties a thing of adulthood by adding some grown-up activities like cocktail hour, manicures, pedicures, cooking and watching movies. This type of a girlie weekend is only limited by the imaginations of the women attending.
