New Orleans

Our recipe for the perfect gal-pal getaway is simple. Begin with a beautiful venue and simply add in wine, a spa and as many BFF’s as you can round up. Reduce stress and let simmer for the weekend. Easy, right?

Not sure where to take your gal-pals? Check out some of our favorite places to hang out in this world. Feel free to steal what looks like fun to you:

Oxnard, California – While the community is deeply rooted in agriculture, it’s grown up in recent years and boasts an extraordinary number of elegant, beautiful places to hang out, dine and sleep. While we were only in the city for a weekend, we left with taste buds tickled and craving to return again soon.

Bermuda – Bermuda is a 3-hour direct flight from New York or Boston and 2 hours from Miami. This beats the plane hopping necessary to see much of the Caribbean. You can be checked into your Bermuda hotel and on the beach with a cold drink before mid-afternoon.
