Are you looking for a few girls’ weekend trip ideas that include plenty of time spent outdoors? Girls’ trips don’t just give you the opportunity to take new adventures with your closest friends, but they strengthen the bonds you have together. After all, life is short, and summer is the ideal time to take a weekend break with your besties.

Check out some of the best girls’ trip ideas if you want to spend time outdoors with your favorite crew.


Silver Springs, Florida

Plan a girl’s weekend trip to experience the stunning beauty of one of the last uninhabited spring runs in the state of Florida at Silver Springs State Park. Stay at one of the Silver Springs State Park vacation cabins or RV and tent campsites, explore 14 miles of mixed-use trails, rent a clear kayak, take a glass-bottom boat tour, and learn about the springs at the Silver River Museum and Environmental Education Center.

Pray, Montana

The best weekend getaways for women who love the outdoors include activities like fly fishing, rock climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding, and backpacking. Located just 45 minutes to an hour from Bozeman, Pray is situated along the Yellowstone River in Paradise Valley. Snap a few gal group photos with picturesque views of the Absaroka Mountain Range in the background, take an outdoor yoga class, or drive 40 minutes to reach the North entrance to Yellowstone National Park.

Wilmington, North Carolina

Wilmington deserves a spot on this list of girls’ trip weekend ideas because it has multiple beaches that are ideal for sunrise strolls and plenty of opportunities for boating or fishing. No girls trip to North Carolina would be complete without catching a fish from one of the local fishing piers, surf fishing from the beaches, or heading out on a fishing charter boat. Make some waves and have the best girls’ trip ever!

Florida Keys, Florida

Florida Keys girl getaway ideas are fantastic for so many reasons. Think palm trees, warm breezes, flats fishing, snorkeling trips, sunset-watching sessions, live music under the stars, and kayaking alongside bottlenose dolphins. Plan an extended weekend girls' trip by starting in Key Largo, and heading southwest on U.S. 1 through Islamorada, Marathon, Big Pine Key, and Key West for the ultimate road trip that your girl group won’t soon forget.

San Diego, California

Mission Bay is a popular place to designate as home base for a girls’ trip weekend in San Diego. There are resorts for all budget ranges located on Mission Bay, Mission Beach Park is nearby for sunset walks, and you’ll have easy access to fun outdoor activities like kayaking, golfing, boating, and standup paddle boarding.


Use this list of girls’ weekend trip ideas to start planning a relaxing summer getaway with your best friends.
