There’s nothing quite like setting off on a new adventure while having your very best friends by your side as you explore new places and make new memories together. Sometimes you don’t even need to go out of the country to broaden your horizons and try new things. Below are six great trips to take with your girlfriends that will keep you staying active and having tons of fun!

New York City is a great place to visit if you and your girlfriends are up for a wild adventure and don’t mind the hustle and bustle of a big city. New York City is known as the “melting pot” of the United States, so expect lots of great food and wonderful cultural experiences! Experience a day of tourism and visit places like Central Park, Times Square, The Statue of Liberty, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Empire State Building, or indulge in a theatrical experience at a Broadway play or musical. No matter what adventures you choose to embark on, you’re guaranteed to have an amazing experience.

Charleston, South Carolina is the perfect low-country destination getaway if your friend group enjoys exceptional seafood, rich history and beautiful historical landmarks, and of course, the beach! From Charleston Harbor tours to exploring the Battery and Fort Sumter, Charleston is home to beautiful views and excellent tourist sights. After spending a few hours scouting out the best sights and touring the grounds of Boone Hall and Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, you and your girlfriends should treat yourselves to a night of drinks and excellent cuisine on King Street.

Nashville, Tennessee is known as the home of country music, so if you and your closest friends can’t help but join in every time a country song comes on the radio, Nashville is the place for you. Some great places to visit in Nashville include the Grand Ole Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and Music Row. For those who aren’t as keen on country music, don’t fret, Nashville has something for you too! Places like the Tennessee State Capitol Building, Belmont Mansion, and The Gulch, are all destinations that are sure to impress the history lover, the fashion expert, and the art connoisseurs of the group.

Denver, Colorado is full of beautiful, scenic sights and tons of adventurous outdoor activities. Some must see places in Denver include the Denver Botanic Gardens, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and the Denver Art Museum. If you like to hike, there are so many wonderful hiking trails that are less than an hour outside of the city!

Wine Country in California is a must if you and your girlfriends love wine almost as much as you love traveling! Explore the Napa or Sonoma regions with your friends, and treat yourselves to an abundance of fabulous wine tastings and upscale cuisine as you take in all of the rich culture that Wine Country has to offer. A few things to check off your travel list when in Wine Country includes touring the stunning vineyards and participating in a wine tasting, going on a hot air balloon ride over the valleys, or exploring on the ground on a bike tour.

Blowing Rock, North Carolina is the perfect destination for friends that love a scenic view of the mountains. You can spend your days hiking and enjoying the beauty of nature, or roaming through the various shops in the picturesque downtown of Blowing Rock. From skiing and exploring waterfalls, to spa days and winery tours, Blowing Rock has a little bit of everything for everyone in your friend group!

No matter the destination, wherever you decide to go you’re sure to make a lot of wonderful memories with your girlfriends... and don’t forget to take a lot of pictures to document your travels! And since today is International Women’s Day… don’t forget to celebrate those friends that are always behind you or beside you every single day.

As always, my goal is to share chic, ageless style and endless fun, from a sincerely silver perspective.  I feature fashion, beauty, and relevant lifestyle information and help women continue to grow and bloom as we share this ageless journey together!  Thank you for reading!
