When was the last time you took a trip with just the girls? If you’re like me, it’s been more than a year since I’ve vacationed with my best ladies. I’m well overdue for a girls’ getaway.
Now, the question is: where to go?
I gathered four of my favorite places in the US to take a girls’ trip. All four are easy to get to and offer something special!
Destination 1: Santa Barbara, California
Southern California is home to some incredible beach towns, but Santa Barbara has my heart. I love breathing in the fragrant floral air as I explore the city, whether that be on long beach walks, casual city strolls, or breezy boardwalk bike rides. Aside from the incredibly luxurious hotels you can stay in, Santa Barbara offers some of the best urban wineries on their urban wine trail. Don’t worry, you can balance out your sips with healthy meals from plenty of local spots.
STAYkini Must-Have Piece:Wrap Skirt
The secret to packing perfectly for a SoCal vacation is bringing all the layers, including swimwear.
Destination 2: Austin, Texas
This southern city has become a girls’ weekend staple in recent years. And it’s no wonder - Austin has something for every occasion, from bachelorette trips to birthday celebrations. Every neighborhood is special, offering the most delicious food — even beyond Tex-Mex — incredible live music, and beautiful landscapes.
STAYkini Must-Have Piece:Keyhole Tankini Top
Our most conservative top will help you keep comfortably covered as you take on all the water activities on Lake Austin and the Colorado River.
Destination 3: Miami, Florida
What better place to travel with your girls to than a beach? What I love about Miami is that it can be a relaxing retreat or a lively party. And, no matter how you take in the city, it’s always an opportunity to look your best. I recommend packing your favorite jewelry and most trendy outfits for this fashion capital — or, at the very least, your credit card to get the most out of the shopping.
STAYkini Must-Have Piece:High-Low Bottom
This versatile piece will help you transition your look from day to night, which is a complete necessity in Miami…since we all know you won’t be leaving the beach.
Destination 4: Scottsdale, Arizona
With an average of 299 sunny days per year, you can soak up the sun any time of year in Scottsdale. And while we love a good desert pool party, Scottsdale has so much more to offer. From quaint Old Town Scottsdale to high-end shopping, you and your girls can make this trip your own. One thing you can’t miss out on is a trip to the spa. Don’t worry, there are plenty to choose from. Scottsdale is home to the most spa resorts of any city in America.
STAYkini Must-Have Piece:Twist Front Bikini Top
Our classic bandeau is the best way to get that golden southwest glow you’re dreaming of.
These are my four favorites, but I have to admit, the toughest part might be deciding where to go. But, who says you can only choose just one? Safe travels, STAYkini family!
