Girly weekend city break ideas

There is no better way to enjoy a long weekend than by going away with your closest friends. Having a girly weekend can be a great way to relax, unwind, and forget about all your worries back home. Plus, you will probably find that a girly trip with all your besties will be a lot less stressful without your family and even your boyfriend. I’m sure you and all your friends will have similar interests and will want to see the same sights and attractions; there won’t be any huge arguments over how you spend your days!

So, ready to jet off with your friends? Grab your friends and pick from one of these cool destinations!

New York City

Is there anywhere cooler than NYC? We certainly don’t think so! Of course, there are the main attractions that you can spend a few hours looking around, such as the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty. But this huge city has plenty of quirky attractions as well, so it’s a good idea to try and dig a little deeper to get a real feel for the city. Check out sites like before you go so you know which are the best bars to be seen in. This is also a great city for culture, so it’s a good idea to plan ahead if you want to see any theater plays or shows. For a really cultured evening, head to Central Park to one of its Shakespeare in the Park evenings.


Another great city to hit with all your gal pals is London. Again, just like NYC, this brilliant city is huge and features plenty of culture. But there are also numerous places you can let your hair down as well! If you are ever feeling peckish, you should call into one of the city’s swanky hotels for afternoon tea. Hotels offer very sophisticated teas, but if you are on a budget, you can find cheaper options in cafes and restaurants. Make sure that you all head to Buckingham Palace so that you can get your photo taken with a guardsman!

Los Angeles

Whether you and your girls enjoy the thrill of theme parks or would much prefer to fill your days shopping in fancy boutiques, Los Angeles is definitely the place for you! You could spend the morning sunning yourselves on Venice Beach before heading off to Hollywood to see if you can spot any of the rich and famous. Take a look at to find out where you have the best chance of spying your celebrity crush!


If you have a very long weekend to spare, you might have enough time to hop over to Dubai for a few days. If you all have a head for heights, it is worth taking the lift up to the top of the Burj Khalifa. This is a 160-story skyscraper, and you can see some wonderful city vistas from its observation deck! To learn about the local culture, you can spend a day strolling around the pretty Al Fahidi Historic District. Once you’re ready for a drink and some refreshments, it’s worth heading to the Arabian Tea House.


If you want to soak up some ancient history and culture during your weekend away with your friends, book a few nights in Rome. Plus, this is one of the top destinations for food anywhere in the world! There is lots of history waiting for you at the Vatican Museum, and you can also explore Ancient Rome at the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Don’t forget to get an iconic photo of the bunch of you posing in front of the Trevi Fountain!


Another great European destination for culture and history has to be Berlin. You can explore the old East-West divide by walking the remaining length of the Berlin Wall. It’s also worth booking a table at the restaurant that’s right at the top of the TV Tower. The restaurant rotates slowly as you are dining, so you benefit from 360 degree views! If you want to squeeze some shopping time into your Berlin break, go to the Ku’Damm, the city’s famous shopping street. It is often thought of as the Berlin equivalent of London’s Oxford Street.

As you can see, there are so many great destinations around the world for fun girly weekends away. As long as you have your closest friends with you and a fun sense of excitement, you should have a brilliant time wherever you go!
