5 Affordable Girls' Getaways

Published: 03/17/2016
By Sery Kim, U.S News & World Report - When it comes to finding a place to decompress with your friends, college roommates or family members on a great getaway with the girls, the key is plenty of planning and choosing a destination that offers a winning mix of fun, relaxation and quality bonding time. But here's the thing: Selecting a girls' getaway that fits a variety of preferences and price points can be tricky. For this reason, we came up with five budget-friendly girls' getaway ideas that offer the chance to cut loose, indulge in excellent cuisine, try a new activity and, most importantly, bring gal pals together.

Salt Lake City

For flourishing food and shopping scenes that won't leave a major dent in your pocketbook, look no further than Salt Lake City. Current Fish & Oyster – and its sister bar Under Current, with its inventive bites and inexpensive cocktails – offers an excellent spot for eating and drinking. And across the city, you'll also find a wealth of brewpubs and innovative restaurants, featuring everything from Spanish- to Japanese-influenced plates. When you're ready for some activity, stroll and shop around the Broadway area, where you'll find bargain-friendly stores like Fellow Shop or hit up the other side of downtown Salt Lake City for decadent chocolates at Caputo's before getting pampered with a spa treatment at The Grand America Hotel. And if you're hankering for more adventurous pursuits, with Salt Lake's dramatic typography, filled with canyons, mountains and the idyllic Great Salt Lake, there are plenty of outdoor adventures to experience.
