There is nothing better than spending quality time with your girlfriends. And how to celebrate your friendship better if not with a girls’ trip? Traveling together will tighten your bond and help you create beautiful memories together. However, planning the trip raises a big question. Where to go? To help you out, we put together a list of top US destinations for a girls’ trip. Check it out and pick your favorite. Or, even better, visit them all. We can guarantee you will have the time of your lives together. So, pack your travel toiletries and your bags, and let’s go party.
Austin is one of the best destinations for a girls’ trip in the US. There is always something going on, even if the city seems pretty laid back at first glance. The live music capital of the world will amaze you with its superb live music, incredible food, and breathtaking scenery. You will have so many fun activities to choose from that you might need to extend your stay. First, you can start a party on 6th street, the home to the best bars, live music venues, and restaurants. There you can have some of the best cocktails and, why not, sing some karaoke? Then, you can have a fun and active day together and go swimming in a freshwater pool, kayaking on the Colorado River, or hiking. For relaxation, you can go to a spa and have a girls’ brunch at one of the many cafes.
New Orleans, Louisiana
NOLA is known for being the bachelorette capital of the US, and with good reason. It is the city where you and the girls can have some of the best experiences together. You can, for example, embark on a food tasting trip in the old district. By doing so, you will be able to sample the famed local food and even learn how to prepare some of the dishes. Or, you can try the most famous drinks in NOLA on Bourbon Street. For a “terrifying” experience, you can go on one of the many ghost tours or visit the Voodoo Museum. And for a real taste of history, you can take a stroll in the French Quarter or visit the 1850 house. You will be fascinated to see how people lived more than 100 years ago.
Miami Beach, Florida
If you are looking for some fun in the sun with the girls, Miami Beach is the destination for you. Here you can relax on the beach, sip some cocktails by a pool, or go on a shopping spree. In addition, you can book a boat tour and visit the famous floating tiki bars or go on a Street Art Tour in Wynwood. During the day, you can go to the Miami Zoo, as well as the Seaquarium. They are fantastic places to visit for plenty of fun and entertainment. During the night, you can have a taste of Miami’s famously vibrant nightlife. For instance, you can go on a Club Crawl and taste some casual drinks or hang out in Little Havana. The Cuban neighborhood is the best place to have a strong and energizing Cuban coffee and take over the dance floors of the clubs.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
To chase away the cold season and continue the relaxation in the sun, visit San Juan. The capital city of Puerto Rico is the perfect mixture of history and modern times. The Old San Juan district, for example, will take you on an exciting ride back in time. You can find beautiful monuments and Spanish colonial structures from the 16th and 17th centuries just by walking down the street. On the other hand, in the new Santurce neighborhood, you can admire the colorful murals and party in one of the numerous bars. And if you come to the best destination in the Caribbean, you just have to taste the food here. The unique blend of Spanish, French, African, and local influences will blow your tastebuds away. It will make you understand why San Juan is one of the top US destinations for a girls’ trip.
The Queen City of the West combines art, culture, and history like no other city does. There is so much entertainment here that it will keep your crew busy for days. During the day, you can visit the Denver Art Museum or the Denver Selfie Museum. You will have lots of Insta photos to take and post as a group. Then, you can go to a local brewery or winery or even go on a whiskey tour. Imagine how much fun it will be to sample so many delicious drinks. For even more fun, you can visit Estes Park for the views, the Red Rock Amphitheater for a live concert, or go to a Rockies game. In addition, going to Elitch Gardens theme park is a fantastic way to spend a wonderful day with your besties. So, pack your bags and head to Denver for your girls’ trip. And don’t worry about leaving behind some of your valuables. You can have your important items safely stored at a storage facility and travel carefree.
Las Vegas, Nevada
What kind of girls’ trip doesn’t end in Sin City? Of course, we had to include it, especially with all the entertainment options available. Live fashion shows, popular selfie spots, gondola rides, and the first digital art museum in the world are just some of the attractions in the city that never sleeps. Also, you can gamble in the casinos, sing your heart out at karaoke, or immerse yourselves in Italian culture at the Streetmosphere shows. Every day, the 15-minute live performances from St Mark’s Square will take you on a trip to Italy without moving from your seat. Musicians, dancers, jugglers, and other performers dressed in Venetian outfits will enchant you time and again. But if you want an unforgettable experience, you can go on a helicopter tour. Admire the Las Vegas lights from above or even head out to the Grand Canyon. A-ma-zing!
A word of advice
Although going on a trip with your best friends is exciting news, don’t overlook the importance of your safety. Traveling during COVID-19 requires you to take some extra precautions to ensure that you will have a good experience. Before you leave, inform yourselves about the possible local restrictions and requirements of your destination. After you do so, the sky’s the limit. Take the top US destinations for a girls’ trip list with you, check all the locations, and have the time of your lives.
