Getaways for a Single Woman

Getaways for a Single Woman
If you are a single woman who thinks of a couple's retreat when you hear the phrase "weekend getaway," then it may be time to reinvent your idea of vacation. Just because you do not have a mate is no reason not to splurge on some solo rest and relaxation. Consider the options below while planning your single-girl getaway trip.

Ranch Resort

If you have a soft spot for wide-open spaces, then a getaway to a ranch resort might be your ideal getaway. At the Mountain Sky Guest Ranch in Montana, you can go on a Wild West Women Adventure. During your stay, connect with nature by hiking, saddling up one of the horses and dancing a two-step with one of the ranch cowboys. A cowboy will even pick you up at the airport to transport you to the ranch to begin your adventure.

Surf Camp

If lounging on the beach sounds boring to you, consider the Northwest Women's Surf Camp. The two-day program taught by a certified instructor will have you riding the waves in no time. While you are not learning to master the surf, relax and stretch your tired muscles during a beach yoga class. Organic meals will keep you feeling satisfied and energized.

Spa Day

What could be more relaxing than a day of spa treatments followed by shopping while noshing on healthy spa cuisine in between? The Oaks Spa at Ojai is the perfect getaway for women who when asked about activities desired for a weekend trip answer, "Nothing!" Spa treatments such as full-body massages and body wraps will calm the body and mind. Once you are rested and ready for a little adventure, take one of the fitness classes offered at the spa. Specialized theme weekends, for example a weekend for yoga lovers and mother and daughters, are available.

African Adventure

Ready for something a little more exotic? Become a jungle queen during your getaway by traveling to Africa. Women-only walking tours will give you a chance to get up close and personal with the African plains and tribal life. Be sure you are in good shape for this one, as the tours usually require about five miles a day of walking.
