"Five of my girlfriends who I have not seen since 1974 and have reconnected on Facebook plan to meet for a long weekend in May in Cape Canaveral, Florida. We all live in different parts of the country and have decided from this year forward we will meet someplace once a year in May. First up Florida, where one has a condo on the beach." —Karen Kuczka Daines
"I would recommend Asheville to anyone for a great girls weekend. Visited the Grove Park Inn, Toured the Biltmore Estate & Winery (which not every man would have the patience and appreciation for) and took in all the amazing food & drink available in Asheville. Wish we had even more time to explore all the wonderful boutiques there!" —Grace Sak.
"We went to Door County, WI, in the winter. It was so relaxing. Sure there wasn't much open but [one of] the few things we liked was the Hands On Art Studio. They even have Adult Nights where you can bring in food and wine. Then going back and watching the snow was so much fun!" —Taunya Hagen.
"We went to Stevensville/St. Joseph, Michigan on Lake Michigan. Tosi's for dinner, The Chocolate Garden for truffles, Bit of Swiss for breakfast/pastries, and the local area winery's such as the Round Barn. Walked Lake Michigan looking for sea glass." —Lisa Fravel Murray. Check out these other great winery-based day-trips around the country.

"My two best girlfriends and I lead very different lives in very different parts of the country, but we choose a destination every year for a getaway. This year the plan is to rent a 4x4 in Costa Rica and plan our own tour. Even though it is difficult to plan these vacations (I have two small children), I come back so refreshed that I know I am a better wife and mother after my little break." —Heidi Wark Schroeder.
"NYC for sightseeing/shopping and Florida's Southern Gulf Coast for relaxing and cure for the winter blues!" —Sharon Gillon-Cato.

"Tulips in Oregon, fresh seafood and a castle tour in Victoria [B.C.] and chocolate tour along with more seafood in Seattle. Of course Forks was to take in the 'Twilight' hype. Took the trip with by best friend and we purchased fun, lady-like hats at one of Portland's outdoor markets and wore them throughout the trip. I'll always remember that trip." —Solo Travel Girl Blog.
