Warm weather and Summer activities are in full swing. Trying to juggle everything in our hectic lives leaves little time to spend with your girlfriends. Town Center is here to give you and your #girlsquad the ultimate close-to-home getaway you all deserve. Whether it be a one-day outing or a weekend whirlwind, you can find all you’d ever want right here.

 

ONE DAY OUTING

What’s the best way to start your girls getaway? One word – BRUNCH. Head to Tupelo Honey at 11am for their handcrafted cocktails because what’s brunch without Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s?! If you’re craving something sweet, try their Mountain Blueberry Pancakes or have the best of both worlds and get one of your Besties to order a savory treat like the Southern Shakshuka or Avocado Toast to split. Once you and the girls are full and focused, it’s time for the pampering to begin!

Since this is an all-day affair, you’ll need the perfect outfit for tonight which means….. it’s time to shop! Be sure to hit all of your favorite stores: Anthropologie, Boyer’s Diamonds, Francesca’s, Free People, Loft, Lululemon, Monkee’s of Virginia Beach. Once you and the girls are stocked with your favorite new looks, drop your bags off in the car and prepare to be pampered. Central Park Avenue is your next street to stroll – first you’ll want to get the perfect mani-pedi at Michael Michelle Nail Spa. Next, head to Bluemercury for the ultimate summer glow makeover from their beauty experts. And last but not least, it’s not a #girlsgetaway without a professional blowout from Modern Salon & Spa!

NOW your #girlsquad is ready to go from head-to-toe! To start the night off on a high note, enjoy dinner on the Ruth’s Chris Steak House balcony. Their Sizzle Swizzle Swirl happy hour is even better when accompanied by live music in The Fountain Plaza! Quirks has an incredible patio off of The Plaza, too. If you’re craving a happy hour filled with a funky/casual cuisine of burgers, beers, tacos, and burritos then Quirks is definitely your spot.

After you and the girls are full on good food and trendy tunes, it’s time to throw on those new outfits and head to Zeider’s American Dream Theater, The Sandler Center, or The Funny Bone for a show you’ll all enjoy!

 

Want this quality bestie-time to last the entire weekend?

The businesses of Town Center offer an array of activities from crafting to baking and painting to exercising! If you all have a bit of a sweet tooth and are craving a taste of Paris, check out one of Macaron Tart‘s baking classes where you can learn to make macarons, croissants and more. If you’re in the mood to improve upon your cooking skills bring the girls to Williams Sonoma for a technique class. Each class takes a hands-on approach to a variety of topics like delicious Instant Pot classics or essential knife skills for the kitchen.

If the squad is feeling crafty, Town Center has that covered, too! Try one of Paper Source‘s Hand Lettering Hacks workshops or learn how to make Handmade Cards for Summer. Or you can let the creative juices (& wine) flow at Muse Paintbar with one of their paint sessions offered every day of the week! Last but not least, there’s no better way to bond with the girls than with a calorie torching workout at YMCA Town Center. Their Regymen Burn and Box classes follow an interval training style where time flies and calories burn!
