For most people, a trip for the May long weekend wasn’t possible last year. To compensate, nothing better than booking a girls trip to an incredible destination for this year. That’s why we’ve rounded up a list of destinations for you to choose from to ensure you have a fun long weekend with your girlfriends!
Cabo San Lucas, México
Cabo San Lucas is a great destination for a long weekend if you want to go somewhere tropical on a budget and have a ton of fun! Usually, people have the misconception that you need to save a lot of money to go to Cabo, but the truth is that you don’t have to stay in the most expensive resort to have a good time.
Cabo has a lot of attractions and different rides, it’s just a matter of knowing to spend money on experiences rather than an expensive hotel. Additionally, if you just want to relax, Cabo is a perfect place to do it as well. An impeccable day can be spent at the beach admiring the gorgeous ocean views with your best girlfriends and delicious fruit cocktails. The best part is that as mentioned, you don’t need tons of money to do that!
Palm Beach, Florida, USA
If you still want a somewhat tropical trip without having to travel too far, you can have a perfect long weekend at Palm Beach in Florida! The place is perfect to relax with your girlfriends or go on a walk through City Place or Downtown Palm Beach. Also, if you want something extra, you can treat yourselves to a spa day at The Spa at the Breakers Palm Beach!
New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
Quite the opposite of the other two locations, it’s New Orleans! The city is famous for its nightlife with a lot of jazz and fun bars to visit. That’s why it’s just the perfect place to go to if you and your friends are looking for a more bustling location for the May long weekend. Just a few days are enough to enjoy the upbeat energy of the city and go along with the bar crawling and very affordable drinks they have to offer!
Okanagan Valley, Canada
If you want to combine the drinking with the calmness, Okanagan Valley may be the perfect place for you and your girlfriends to head to for the long weekend. That’s because the place is home to a few of the most breathtaking vineyards in the world and it’s not as packed as the most known locations. Also, you will be amazed at the gorgeous views as well as the surprising street art and the luxurious energy the place exudes. It’s a no-brainer!
Nashville is the new Las Vegas for bachelorette parties. So why not do the same for a girl’s trip for the May long weekend? The city is home to great restaurants, bars, and amazing other entertainment options to choose from, all for affordable prices! Bottom line is that it’s just the perfect place no matter what your plans or the energy of the girl’s trip are!
If you want to feel like you’re going abroad, but want to remain close to home, Montreal is a great destination option! The city is the second-largest primarily French-speaking city in the world and gives a lot of French vibes as well. Because it’s considered the cultural capital of Canada, Montreal has a lot to offer, such as the Vieux-Montreal, Mile-End, Plateau Mont-Royal, and Parc du Mont-Royal, besides a lot of exquisite food!
Bottom line is that you can do a lot with a long weekend, you just have to plan it ahead. Whether you want to relax on the beach, go bar crawling or just enjoy the culture of a city, there are a lot of places to go to and a wide range of locations that will fit your budget. We hope we were able to inspire you to pick your location to go to for the May long weekend and have the most fun on an unforgettable girl’s trip!
