Sometimes wine nights and group texts just don’t cut it. For the ultimate escape, plan a girls’ getaway to New Smyrna Beach.
Book your stay at a cute Insta-worthy spot like The Salty Mermaid. This luxury boutique hotel is perched right on the Atlantic, perfect for catching a sunrise with the besties. It’s also just steps away from Flagler Avenue, where you’ll be able to do some retail therapy at charming boutiques like Sue Who?, Look Charmed, and Olio Boutique.
No girls’ trip is complete without a spa day. Take time out from shopping with a stop at The Riverview Spa. Tucked away on Flagler Avenue, this tropical oasis features a heated therapeutic waterfall pool and a myriad of rejuvenating treatments. Indulge in a luxurious massage or pedicure with your girls by your side.
Once refreshed, pop over to Third Wave Café to enjoy lunch in the verdant garden. With light fare such as the refreshing watermelon salad, plus savory pizzas, and delicate crepes, there’s something for even the most discerning foodie in your group.
Art aficionados will want to head over to Canal Street, part of NSB’s historic arts district. Leisurely peruse galleries like Arts on Douglas, The Hub on Canal, and Gallery One Twenty, then flex your craft skills at DIY workshop Hammer & Stain.
In the evening, catch up over cocktails at CorkScrew Bar and Grille. The drink menu changes seasonally, so there’s always something delicious to sip. Stay for dinner to try entrees like the chicken & goat cheese salad, mojito scallops, and osso bucco.
Charming, yet undeniably chic, New Smyrna Beach is a top destination for a weekend away with your girls.
