Girlfriends Weekend Getaways

A weekend away with just the girls is always good for the soul.  With all the responsibilities of life and budgets that can’t accommodate a jaunt across the country, here are a few places within our own peninsula that are easy to get to and will give you and your girls some rare and coveted time for relaxation and reconnection.

About 85 miles north of Miami on the southeast coast of Florida is Jupiter Beach.  This gorgeous little beach town has 3.4 miles of pristine beaches with natural features such as dunes, mangroves, sea grape trees and warm, clear waters.  From private paddleboard tours or extended time on PonTiki, the party boat, to sipping cocktails or enjoying a delicious French dinner, fill your days with relaxing in the sun or adventuring around town.

Venturing to the northwest panhandle, the charming community of Rosemary Beach can be found along scenic route 30A.  Enjoy the signature Florida weather in the least “Florida-y” place in Florida. It’s breathtaking scenery and inviting atmosphere guarantees a weekend to remember with bike rides through town, sunset cruises, boutique and gallery browsing, and relaxing at your delightful beach house rental. With its white sand beaches made of clear quartz, you and your girlfriends may just return year after year!

Last, but not least, is the versatile Amelia Island off the northeast coast.  This 13-mile-long island is a mix of Victorian splendor, breathtaking beaches, world class events and local pubs that highlight and celebrate its rich history.  Getting massages, taking ghost tours, watching foreign films, shopping at upscale consignment shops, and going sailing are just a few of the activities you and your girlfriends can enjoy on this unique, one-of-a-kind island.
