Finding trip ideas that all (or at least most) of your women’s group will thoroughly enjoy can be a lot of work and take a lot of time. But here are three really unique, interesting, and even enlightening events right here in Michigan that your group will love.
If your group members are looking to illuminate their lives and recharge their health, this is a great place to begin! Take a step beyond yoga and meditation into the empowering realms of high-vibration sound healing, aura reading, energetic healing, and other pioneering fields in health, spirituality and technology.
This event offers three days of nationally recognized speakers, a range of workshops, and a broad variety of exhibitors offering the latest in wellness, healing and holistic living products and services including vitamins and supplements, non-GMO, organic and raw foods, coaching and counselors, health-related practitioners, green products for the home, and astrologers, numerologists, mediums and more!
The whole event is planned for September 7-9 at the historic DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel Detroit Downtown - Fort Shelby, where there are so many new and exciting things to experience in the city’s rebirth. Don’t miss the opportunity to embrace health, wellness and spirituality with like-minded friends!
A girls’ getaway is just the ticket if your group is just looking to relax, laugh, shop and have fun. Here are some offerings from around the state:
The Girls Getaway Weekend in Port Austin, September 21-22, is billed as “a weekend full of fun, fashion and food.” What could be better than that? How about raffles, live entertainment, a walkable scavenger hunt with prizes, lots of yummy treats, and gift certificate giveaways? The event includes lots of time for shopping during Ladies Day at the Farmer’s Markets as well as at the Village Green Tiny Shops.
Or maybe you’d like to visit beautiful southwest Michigan, a well-kept secret many Chicagoans are hoping stays that way. Checkout this one-day Girls Getaway in St. Joseph, perched on the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. This trip is all about pampering so it begins with a relaxing visit to the luxurious Spa at Harbor Shores for massages, mani/pedis, facials and lunch. Next, it’s off to shopping in downtown St. Joe’s many unique shops and boutiques. Stop three at White Pine Winery is a great way to get to know some of the area’s many exceptional wines before heading off to dinner at one of Michigan's best, The Bistro on the Boulevard, awarded “Region’s Best Fine Dining Restaurant” by Shore Magazine and the Wine Spectators award of excellence for “one of the best restaurant wine lists in the world.”
Already thinking about Christmas? There’s no better place to get ahead of the season with a girls getaway than in Frankenmuth, home of the world-famous Christmas retailer, Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland. Shopping is key to this trip but there’s also plenty of time for taking a Frankenmuth FunShips boat tour, with or without wine and chocolate! Before you go, don’t forget to browse the River Place Shops offering everything from clothes and toys to baked goods and other eatables to beer and wine!
