MUST READ! The Recipe for the Perfect Girl’s Trip

So…you’ve booked your Girl’s Trip. Chances are you and your gal pals would have fun doing just about anything – but, you want to know what’s going to take your girls getaway to the next level? Here are some of our top tips to make this girl’s trip your best yet. Here is our recipe for the perfect girl’s getaway…

The Best Girls Trip

Move over spas…ladies want some adventure! Better yet, let’s have both.

That’s right. Choose a destination where you and your gal pals bond over shared experiences. Whether it’s an incredible sunrise hike, a cultural tour or white water rafting – think outside of the box when it comes to your next ladies’ trip. If this is a stretch for your girl gang, listen to Thrive Global: take this opportunity to do something you never thought you could do! Create new experiences together.

Grab your blueprint so you don’t waste precious time together.

There’s nothing worse, in my opinion than wasting those valuable vacay moments trying to figure out what to do & where to eat when I’m in a new destination. Ahem…that’s why Wild Bum was born! Wild Bum consumer, Josephine, proclaimed, “With only a few days to celebrate, Rachel‘s guide cut through the clutter of researching and planning and helped us get right to spending those precious hours enjoying the highlights of Scottsdale and each other.” YESSSSS! Go with a plan, at the very least, a loose (vetted) blueprint so that you can spend those precious moments wisely!

Adventure Girls go to Chattanooga

Wild Bum Guide Architect Mary Allison Lyons calls Chattanooga one of the best destinations for an active girls getaway. It is filled with biking, hiking, and outdoor activities! Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains and split by the Tennessee River, it’s picturesque and loaded with culture and history. Who says a girl’s trip can’t be both fun and educational!

Traverse City, located on the gorgeous Grand Traverse Bay, is home to over 40 wineries and countless breweries making it THE perfect weekend adventure for your gal pals. 

Best Girls Weekend

Have FUN!

Most of all, taking a girl’s trip is an opportunity to let loose and have some fun. And, listen to the scientists when they say women who travel:

  • decrease their risks for heart disease
  • are less likely to become tense, depressed or tired and are happier with their marriages.
  • experience improved mood and reduced stress. It also can temporarily help boost productivity.
  • People who travel more frequently are more satisfied with their physical health and well-being.

Amen! Pack a fun board game, like this one, some face masks and let the F-U-N begin.

Cheers to more girls’ getaways…and the life-changing magic of travel.

Happy #wildbumming!
