The Ultimate Girlfriend Getaway

Margaritas, manicures and your best gal-pals

I remember being perched on the edge of the tub while Mom teased her hair, slathered on her lipstick and shrouded herself in perfume. Times have changed and going out is a whole new experience for women today. Sure, there'll always be date night and business meetings after cocktail hour - but there's also wonderful, magical spas. Add in your girlfriends and you've got the perfect girlfriend experience.

Girlfriend ExperienceGirlfriend ExperienceI love the spa - just ask all the guys who work with me how shameless I am about my need for absolute pampering. But I also happen to love wine, margaritas and my girlfriends. Now I can have it all - without missing a day of work.

Want to get in on the fun? Have a look at these fab spas in Canada and the United States that are making the "Girlfriend Experience" priority number one.

Shag in Boston - If the name doesn't intrigue you, the wine and cappuccinos during treatments will. The best part is how cozy the salon is so catching up on the office gossip while your color sets is totally doable. If you want to get "shagged" check out Shag online.

NiteSpa - This spa comes alive when the stars come out. Bachelorette, birthday or just the ultimate girlfriend experience, isn't it time you treated yourself to the NiteSpa-a-go-Go? Concierge service includes party planning, spa appointments, cocktails and a discount on take-home products. Visit NiteSpa online and rediscover why you just can't live without your girlfriends.

Millcroft Inn - We'll admit that the name isn't as fun as Shag, but if you're in need of a stress-detox, this is the spa to escape to. Hide yourself away in an artist studio, stroll through the picturesque countryside or go antiquing - all between spa appoints, of course. It's a busy spa (lots of city escapees flock here on the weekends!) so book well in advance if you have your heart set on a specific weekend. Visit the Millcroft online for more info.
