Laissez les bon temps rouler (Let the good times roll—in Cajun French)! New Orleans is home to incredible food, music, history, culture, and, of course, partying. Whether you prefer staying in the heart of the French Quarter or somewhere in the hip warehouse district, there’s definitely something for everyone in New Orleans. For a historic hotel with charm and class, check out the Bourbon Orleans Hotel. It has a courtyard pool (NOLA can get hot hot hot!) and live entertainment at the bar, too.


2. Washington, D.C.

Where better than the nation’s capital to gather with your girls? Rich in history and all things Americana, Washington, D.C. is easily accessible by car, train, or plane and has endless options. For some intellectual stimulation, check out a tour of the Capitol before you go bar hopping downtown. Take a double-decker bus tour through the city, and in the springtime, bask in the gorgeousness of the famous cherry blossom trees. While visiting, stay at Conrad Washington DC. With luxe, modern amenities and a prime location, you and your girls can book a suite to indulge in some R&R, cocktails, and fine dining—all without even having to leave the property.


3. The Hamptons

Summer House fans, this one is for you! Amagansett in Suffolk County, Long Island (AKA “The Hamptons”) is a hotspot in the summer and equally as gorgeous (and much more peaceful) in the off season. Known for boutiques, restaurants, golf, and storybook charm, Amagansett is home to The Roundtree Amagansett, a luxe, picturesque property with rooms, suites, and cottages that are perfect for a girls’ weekend away. With shuttles to the beaches in the summer, nightly s’mores around the firepit, and a gorgeous green yard with cozy spots to unwind, it’s an ideal getaway spot for your girl squad.


4. Miami

“Party in the city where the heat is on…” Miami has everything: beaches, clubs, pool parties, and incredible weather. It’s pretty much the hottest hot spot for party people in the U.S. Year round, it’s an escape from the cold weather and the 9-5 lifestyle and offers an oasis that’s perfect for a girls’ trip (it’s also a super popular bachelorette spot, too!). While visiting the coastal metropolis with your girls, stay at The Setai Miami Beach, voted #1 on Travel + Leisure’s 2021 Greater Miami Beach Resort Hotels. Indulge at the Valmont Spa, drink and dine at the open-air, oceanfront The Ocean Grill, and rest up after a long day of girl time in the gorgeous and luxe Asian-inspired guest suites.


5. Dallas
