Relaxing Girls' Weekend Getaway Itinerary

August 30, 2019       Trip Ideas

Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy some pampering in a city surrounded by natural beauty. Grab a few of your closest friends or family members and come to Waynesboro.


Day One: Explore the Sights
Arrive ready for a relaxing stay with highlights you'll be anxious to share. Check into your hotel or one of our unique Bed and Breakfast Inns (like the Iris Inn or Heritage Hill B&B), then head out for some shopping around town. Visit the West End for well-known retailers like Ann Taylor LOFT and Sally Beauty Supply, followed by a trip downtown for the unique and unexpected, such as Initial Inspiration, where you can monogram just about anything. Feed your inner artist and be inspired by the works of art at the Shenandoah Valley Art Center on Wayne Avenue. Meander through the Tree Streets neighborhood, made up of early schools, churches and modest to large Victorian and post-Victorian homes that make for some exciting sightseeing with a broad mix of architectural styles. Catch a flick at Zeus Digital Theater and a milkshake to follow from Willy's - it's a local favorite! Next, get dressed up and spoil yourself with some good food and drinks at the Green Leaf Grill - featuring live music and boisterous entertainment.

Day Two: Hit the Spa!
Wake up and rejuvenate with a tasty breakfast kindly provided by your hotel or B&B, then get ready to treat yourself with a local spa treatment that you and your gal pals are sure to enjoy - check out Harris & Co. Salon, Freda's Skin Studio, or Balance Massage and Wellness for some high quality pampering. Squeeze in lunch between your appointments at Stella, Bella & Lucy's - a cute and cozy spot downtown. Need to unwind after a long day of self-care? Take a stroll on the Greenway Trail, which follows the South River (you're sure to see some folks enjoying the abundant fly fishing Waynesboro is known for).

 

Day 3: Food & Drink Favorites
Get your last day started off right with an authentic Southern brunch and a Monster Mimosa (if you dare!) at Heritage on Main Street. Before heading home, stop by one of the many regional wineries, breweries, distilleries, or cideries for a tour and tasting.
