The Ultimate Girlfriend Getaway

Margaritas, manicures and your best gal-pals

I remember being perched on the edge of the tub while Mom teased her hair, slathered on her lipstick and shrouded herself in perfume. Times have changed and going out is a whole new experience for women today. Sure, there'll always be date night and business meetings after cocktail hour - but there's also wonderful, magical spas. Add in your girlfriends and you've got the perfect girlfriend experience.

Girlfriend ExperienceGirlfriend ExperienceI love the spa - just ask all the guys who work with me how shameless I am about my need for absolute pampering. But I also happen to love wine, margaritas and my girlfriends. Now I can have it all - without missing a day of work.

Want to get in on the fun? Have a look at these fab spas in Canada and the United States that are making the "Girlfriend Experience" priority number one.

Shag in Boston - If the name doesn't intrigue you, the wine and cappuccinos during treatments will. The best part is how cozy the salon is so catching up on the office gossip while your color sets is totally doable. If you want to get "shagged" check out Shag online.

NiteSpa - This spa comes alive when the stars come out. Bachelorette, birthday or just the ultimate girlfriend experience, isn't it time you treated yourself to the NiteSpa-a-go-Go? Concierge service includes party planning, spa appointments, cocktails and a discount on take-home products. Visit NiteSpa online and rediscover why you just can't live without your girlfriends.

Millcroft Inn - We'll admit that the name isn't as fun as Shag, but if you're in need of a stress-detox, this is the spa to escape to. Hide yourself away in an artist studio, stroll through the picturesque countryside or go antiquing - all between spa appoints, of course. It's a busy spa (lots of city escapees flock here on the weekends!) so book well in advance if you have your heart set on a specific weekend. Visit the Millcroft online for more info.

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
