What could be better than a little R&R with your besties at a spa?  It’s the ultimate girls getaway! Here are some wonderful places to try. Just an hour outside of Toronto is Briars Resort & Spa. In Muskoka, there’s the JW Marriott The Rosseau Muskoka Resort & Spa where you can enjoy amazing spa facilities & then check out the quaint shops of local Hunstville.   In the Blue Mountains region near Collingwood is the rustic & serene Scandinave Spa Blue.  Just a short drive from Ottawa is the Wakefield Mill Hotel & Spa  where you can enjoy the beauty of the surrounding Gatineau River and partake in the spa & wellness activities.  
Niagara on the Lake is a perfect destination for a girls' weekend. You can combine your cultural craving at (Shaw Festival – April –October)  with your desire for decadent food & wine in one fabulous weekend.  The Niagara Region is known internationally as a food & wine destination of choice and the wineries of the area have won accolades & awards year after year. Tour the beautiful grounds of the wineries, check out the ever-changing local activities & festivals and sample all that the region has to offer. You can buy a Year Round Tasting Pass or take a wine tour to enjoy many different wineries in one weekend.

If you and your friends are more the adventurous types, why not plan ahead for an outdoor adventure next spring or summer? Have you heard about Glamping yet? Glamping is glamorous or luxurious camping and is a way to enjoy an amazing outdoor adventure without sacrificing comfort. In Ontario, there are 18 amazing glamping destinations to choose from.  You can stay in a treehouse 22 feet above the ground over the Mississippi River in Perth, Ontario or stay in a luxurious safari tent while on a ziplining getaway.  And if you’ve ever wondered what staying in a yurt is like, you can try that too…
For the serious foodies, there are some amazing culinary adventures & fantastic outings to experience with your friends.  In Toronto, check out the Culinary Adventure Company who offer lots of amazing tours, like their award winning City Canoe Paddle & Beach Dining Adventure.  Toronto also has Foodies on Foot to explore the city’s gastro scene.  For gourmet food tours in Ottawa, there’s C’est Bon Gourmet Food Tours.  In Southwestern Ontario, there’s the Elora Culinary Walking Tour.  Chow Bella Taste & Travel is also based in Toronto (and offers many local tours) but offers many tours around the province in Prince Edward County, Niagara Wine Country, Stratford & Southwestern Ontario.

Fit Girls
It isn’t just the boys that like to play games! Girls like to get away and test their skill too. How about the Girlz Getaway CASINO RAMA with both games of chance and skill? Or deal them up at a girls Bridge weekend at Fern Resort.
Some girlfriends became besties through exercise – they took a spin or yoga class and met like-minded women. So why not go away and continue the practice? How about a Fit Chicks retreat at Horseshoe or a Retreat at Shanti Retreat on beautiful Wolfe Island, near Kingston or at the 150 acre oasis at Sugar Ridge Retreat Centre. Healthy bodies…healthy friendships!
