I love trips with my girlfriends. It has been a few months since we all got away so I am anxious to go someplace again. One of our favorite trips was a girls weekend in Galena, Illinois. As always, as soon as we finished up one trip we are excited to plan our next. Since Galena is #5 on Midwest Living’s “15 Great Girlfriend Getaways”, I thought it would be interesting to check out the others on their list.
I live in Kansas City (#1 on the list) when I’m not on the road traveling for work. It is definitely one of my favorite places on the list.
I’ve also spent lots of time with my girlfriends in Chicago (#11 on the list). We have had some great girlfriend getaways there!
I definitely think we need to spend some time in Madison (#2 on the list) but I am most intrigued by #14 . . . I would not have guessed that a trip to Atchison and Levenworth, Kansas would sound so appealing!
But the town’s biggest attraction was created by another woman: designer Mary Carol Garrity. Thousands flock each year to Nell Hill’s, her affordable, idea-packed home-furnishings store. In the 7,000-square-foot space, shoppers lose themselves among elegantly styled rooms.
I have heard great things about Nell Hill’s. It may finally be time to plan a trip to explore it and everything else Atchison and Levenworth have to offer.
Do you have any other destination ideas for my next girlfriend getaway? Please leave your suggestions in a comment!
