The Complete Idiot's Guide to Girlfriend Getaways by Lisa Kasanicky

Have you ever just wanted to take a trip with just you and the girls? I know I have but I also want to include my children, but the book "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Girlfriend Getaways" gives ideas for some fun and even economical ways to get away with your girlfriends for some alone time. I really enjoyed the ideas in this book and even if, like me, you do take the children with you - this book will give you ideas for a wonderful, refreshing trip.

The book is divided into 6 parts with the following parts: Plan, Prep and Primp, Shop 'Til You Plop: Adventures in Retail Therapy, Head Trips: Mind and Body Retreats, Culture Club: Excursions That Feed Your Mind and Appetite, Friends Who Play Together Stay Together: Adventure Trips, The Road Less Traveled: Quirky, Wacky and Wild Excursions. Each part has other subdivided parts that delve into places to go that relate to that main heading. There are volunteer trips, learning, homebodies, thrifty, spa and other exciting excursions.

Each chapter will discuss places where you can stay, stop, and other things you can do along the way. Filled with tips and wit, the book will give you many options as you plan your trip. Ohio Amish Country is included, so be sure to stop there and take a step back in time. Other places included are: New York City, North Carolina, Mayflower Inn in Connecticut, largest animal sanctuary in Utah, festivals, rock band camp and many, many others. Phone numbers and websites are given when available to make it easy to make arrangements. Prices are also given, although they are subject to change.

This is a definite, must have resource if you'd like to plan a getaway with a girlfriend or even plan a family vacation or a mother daughter getaway. With everything laid out in easy-to-read format and also easy to find what you're looking for makes planning the trip fun and easy. And if you don't like what Lisa Kasanicky has written about then she lists more options at the end of each chapter to give you even more options. A wonderful resource that should be on any woman's bookshelf even if just for a mother daughter getaway.
