The saying goes that girls just want to have fun and there are many ways to do so. One way is by having an annual girl’s trip with a group of your closest friends. This is a chance for you to let your hair down, choose a destination and tick a location off of your bucket list. A trip with your friends can be a lot of fun as different personalities and characters come together to share a new experience. This article aims to give you a few fun pointers if you’ll be planning a girl’s trip anytime soon.
Choose a Theme for Your Trip
The first thing to think about when planning the ultimate girl’s trip is what the theme of your trip is. This is your chance to get creative, come up with funny hashtags, and even make t-shirts with your trip slogan. If you need some inspiration, you could come up with a theme that is related to one of your favorite movies, a popular girl band, or a well-known phrase. An example could be ‘Dirty Dancing in LA 2018’ if you and your girls love the movie Dirty Dancing and decide that your primary objective is to dance non-stop on your trip. It is your chance to have fun and be a kid again, even if it’s only for a few days. Another fun example could be something like “Celebrity South Beach” where you and the girls dress up like total rock stars and cruise the beach bars in Miami for a night of memory-making and tropical vibes.
Pick the Right Destination
Although a large percentage of how fun a trip is probably dependent on who you go with, the destination you choose is also important. Try going somewhere that none of you have been before as well as somewhere that’s convenient for everyone. If, for instance, you have a limited time to travel or commitment such as young kids, you may not want to go very far. You could then decide to pack a bag, take road trip essentials such as an epic playlist, a top of the line cooler that will accommodate all the food you’ll be eating, and driver-friendly games and do a cross-country trip. On the other hand, if you have time and are able to travel far out, you could choose an international destination. You should also consider what activities will be available in your local destination as well as the weather. If you do decide to travel between cities, some places to think about going for a girl’s trip are Chicago, Las Vegas, Denver, Portland, New York, or Miami.
Make Trying Something New Essential
It can be easy to stay in your comfort zone when you travel, but you should make trying something new essential for all of the girls. You could do this by finding out what activities they have in the place you’ll be going to and creating a bucket list which includes one out-of-the-box thing for each person in the group to commit to doing. Some things to include on your bucket list could be hanging with polar bears in Alaska, climbing the shark valley tower in Florida or other general ideas such as zip lining, dancing on a table at a club, or simply eating something new. The goal, however, should be trying something out of the ordinary.
A road trip is your chance to be open-minded, laugh until your stomach hurts, and unleash your inner child. You should go with the goal of having the time of your life and not allow anything to get in the way of that. By considering these fun ideas as well as some of your own, hopefully, you’ll be able to accomplish that.
