Top 5 Destinations for a BC Girls Weekend
There’s nothing quite like a girls weekend to spend some time, re-connect and laugh with your best gal pals. As you get older, work, family (or both) can demand a lot of your attention, so it’s important to set aside some time to catch up with your friends. However, when everyone decides to take the plunge and confirm a girls weekend away, it’s equally important to treat yourselves to a destination you won’t forget.
Booking.com, the global leader in connecting travellers with over a million incredible places to stay, has found some of the best spots for you and your girlfriends. Whether your crew is up for a one-hour drive to Squamish, or a solid road trip somewhere you’ve all never been, these five locations are perfect for groups of all shapes, sizes and interests.
Executive Suites Hotel and Resort, Squamish, B.C.
For a more adventurous and outdoorsy group, perhaps the “Outdoor Recreation Hub of Canada” is the perfect spot. Squamish offers over 150 biking trails, wind and kite surfing at the Squamish Spit, as well as kayaking and canoeing. The Executive Suites Hotel doubles as a good home base, but also somewhere to relax, unwind and treat yourselves.
Cusheon Lake Resort, Salt Spring Island, B.C.
For a more low-energy and peaceful experience, this is one of the best places in Canada to go to reflect, relax and connect with your friends. You’ll notice they do things differently on Salt Spring Island from the instant you arrive, as this eco-friendly and person-friendly locale is worth catching. The village of Ganges is in the middle of the island, and is a great cottage atmosphere to take in with your friends.
Manteo Resort, Kelowna, B.C.
A girls weekend doesn’t have to be about lounging the entire time. No matter where you go in B.C., you’re likely to find great hiking, locally-grown food and great atmosphere. Look no further than Kelowna for your girls weekend. Boasting views of the mountain and Lake Okanagan, Manteo Resort offers a vibrant escape from the workweek, and one you girlfriends will love.
Summerland Waterfront Resort & Spa, Narmata, B.C.
Known for its gorgeous and serene nature, Narmata has over 15 km of sprawling vineyards for visitors to choose from, running from the village to nearby Penticton. This top rated resort is located one minute from the beach, and allows small to medium-sized groups do veg out after exerting themselves learning about the fruits and nectars of the Narmata Bench region.
Red Mountain Village Condons, Rossland, B.C.
Leading into winter, visiting Rossland and Red Mountain is a must for a girls weekend getaway. Whether you’re a ski bunny or just enjoy a Baileys and coffee at the base of the mountain, this is one of the best-kept secrets in B.C., even though it was ranked one of eight best places to visit in the world in 2013. Besides, what better way to bring a group of friends together than a cosy winter weekend making memories in a lesser-known corner of B.C.?
