It’s a brand new year which means it’s time to start planning our first girlfriends getaway in 2018! There is nothing better than getting away with some of your best friends and just enjoying some quality time with them. We all get busy and we need a getaway every once in a while to recuperate and get our energy back. We need some laughter and love and what better way to get those two things than planning a trip with your favorite ladies! When you stay with us here at Big Bear Resort, we offer two bedroom luxury condos for you and the girls to enjoy. Imagine waking up every morning to the sound of the river behind you and enjoying your cups of coffee together out on your private balcony, there’s nothing better than that! We also offer FREE TICKETS to numerous shows and attractions that will save you $275 a day, talk about an amazing deal! With so many things to do here, it’s hard to narrow it down to a few. Let’s take a look at what a great Girlfriends Winter Getaway will look like! Trust us, you won’t want the fun to end!
We all know that it isn’t a girls getaway if we don’t do a little shopping (yes!) While there are plenty of shops to check out, some of our favorites happen to actually be locally owned boutiques. One of the best places to go to shop til you drop is The Village, located at traffic light #6 in Gatlinburg. Here you will find 27 unique little shops like The Honey Pot, Candle Cottage, and Spice & Tea Exchange. There are plenty of others, these are just a couple of my personal favorites! If you need a quick energy fix, you can also visit the Donut Friar (for some of the best ones around) and Coffee & Company for a delightful cup of coffee. This particular spot is sure to become a must visit every time you all get together, it feels like you’re stepping into a European shopping adventure. Another great shopping oasis is Tanger Outlets in Sevierville. Here you will find a little bit of everything from designer purses and kitchenware to clothing and shoes (yes!) A little perk for this particular place is that we give you a pamphlet when you check in that will get you one of their $15 coupon books for free, just go to their customer service area which is three doors down from Banana Republic to redeem it. Nothing beats saving a little money during your getaway! The last place we recommend visiting is the Arts & Crafts Community on Glades Road in Gatlinburg. This trail is full of some of the best little shops owned by our local artisans. Here you can see them display and sometimes even demonstrate their crafts for us all to see and love. You will be able to leave with one of a kind pieces that everyone in your family is sure to ask you about when they see them! From paintings to pottery and even candles, you can find something special here that will help you remember your best girls trip yet!
So what’s something else for you and the girls to do while you’re here? How about a spa day?! We all deserve a little pampering sometimes and there’s nothing better than getting some with your friends close by. Whether it’s getting your nails done, a facial, or maybe even a massage, nothing says girlfriends getaway like visiting The Spa at Oak Haven! Hidden away from the hustle and bustle is this amazing spa where we can all get the relaxation that we truly need. They offer group packages that feature massages and facials or ice cream pedicures. With names like renew, revive, refresh, rejuvenate, and restore, we can see that this spa day is exactly what the doctor ordered for us, ladies! We all know that winter takes a toll on our skin, so this will help to get us feeling fresh and moisturized again.
Now we all know that a Girlfriends Winter Getaway is always full of tons of laughter, so why not see a show that will bring on the giggles even more?! The Comedy Barn is one of my favorite shows here in Pigeon Forge, and it’s sure to make you all smile from ear to ear when you see it. Providing clean comedy complete with audience interaction from beginning to end, this award winning show is sure to become a top favorite for everyone in your party. It’s no wonder why they won the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2017! From talking dogs to live country and gospel music, this show has it all and then some. Just imagine if one of your friends get called up for a skit (since you guys were pointing at her to be chosen, you know you’re going to do it), the laughs and photos will never be forgotten and are sure to make for one amazing girls getaway memory! The best part about this particular show is that it’s actually part of our free tickets program, so you get a free adult ticket for it (yay!) Nothing beats saving a bit of money and seeing a hysterical adventure while you’re at it.
Is it finally time for a relaxing day in with the ladies? I think so, and our condos have you covered! You get FREE dvd rentals while you stay with us, so why not pick out a couple movies, order some pizza, and enjoy a night in with the girls? With tons of movies to choose from, you’re sure to find something for everyone to enjoy, like the new movie Mother’s Day. We also have electric fireplaces in every condo, so get ready to pop open a bottle of wine in front of the fireplace and have the best girls night ever! Anyone have a deck of cards? We have a large dining room table in your condo so you guys can gather around and have a fun game night as well! There’s nothing better to do on a girlfriends getaway than just spend some time getting some well deserved rest and relaxation together.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this insider’s look at the perfect Girls Winter Getaway! There is nothing we love more than getting to spend some well deserved time with our best friends. Now we maybe a little bit biased here, but there’s just no better place to go than Pigeon Forge with the ladies!
