Girls Getaway


How to Plan the Perfect Girls Getaway In Marion County

Researchers now say that the planning and anticipation of a vacation, no matter the length of time, offers dramatic health benefits both mentally and physically.  It lowers stress hormones which helps lower high blood pressure. Now if that’s not a good reason to start planning a vacation now, we don’t know what is.

So, why not call your favorite girlfriends, the ones who are there through all life’s hurdles, and gather in Marion County.  Treat yourself to relaxing nights and leisurely mornings.  Then you and your girlfriends can laugh your way through our local shops and boutiques where you won’t be able to go home empty-handed.


We have shops to satisfy every taste and budget.

· Love to sew? Visit Sew Chic or Fabric and Foam Sales.

· Love antiques? Stop by Sweet Memories Antique Mall or Watson’s Coins & Antiques.

· Need to add a few key pieces to your wardrobe? Let the staff at Ginger’s Designer Apparel, Aspire Uniqueness Boutique, or The Fashion Scene guide you in the right direction.

· Although, sometimes all you need is the right fashion accessory.  Baubles and embellishments can be found at Carlo Fine Jewelry, Marlena’s Accessories, and Whites Fine Jewelry.

· Or perhaps your home needs a facelift. You must drop in on Friendly Furniture Galleries, Craft Connection Gift Shop, Main Street Shoppes, Country Prim & Folksy, Rider Pharmacy, Cards, Gifts and Collectibles or The CAVE.

· And lately have you found yourself reading nothing beyond the nutritional label on a cereal box?  Then pick up a best-seller, a glossy magazine or a “trashy” romance novel from Kerri’s Korner Bookstore.

Feeling better yet?

If you still need a little boost, stop by Healthy Naturally where you will find sensible solutions to getting well and staying well. Patricia, who is a certified herbalist, and her knowledgeable staff are a great resource to getting well and staying well.

Relax and Rejuvenate

However, no Girlfriend Getaway would be complete without a few hours at Tuscan Sun Spa. In addition to traditional spa services, the boutique includes Aveda beauty products, luxurious jewelry, handbags and other accessories, gourmet chocolates, and organic Fair Trade teas.  And if you want to pamper the “tweens” and teens in your life, Spa Piccola is the “little” version of Tuscan Sun Spa.  Tuscan Sun Spa also offers parties for girls of all ages, so if you’ve got something to celebrate during your getaway, you can do it here.

You can also get pampered in the lap of luxury at Lion in the Sun. In addition to indoor tanning options, they provide various other services including custom air-brush spray tanning, “red light therapy”, massage therapy, teeth whitening and professional indoor tanning products.

A Night On The Town

You’ve got to visit Heston Farm Winery and Distillery, located along the banks of the Tygart River. The winery is filled with the timeless quality of farm life and will take you back to a simpler time. Enjoy country-style food, tours, concerts, special events, wine and whiskey tastings.

So get those girlfriends on the line – doctor’s orders!
