Are you looking to plan a weekend getaway with your girlfriends? Whether you’re looking for a place to celebrate a birthday or a bachelorette, or just looking to get some much needed R&R away from the city with the special ladies in your life, Ontario’s Highlands is the perfect destination for your next weekend getaway. In Ontario’s Highlands, you are just steps away from a variety of fun and relaxing activities, including taking in the beautiful scenery through trails and excursions, festivals, shopping, and of course spa retreats to help you relax and unwind.
Catch a Show at the Stirling Festival Theatre
Round up the girls, get dolled up and go see a show at the award-winning Stirling Festival Theatre. As its name indicates, the theatre is located in Stirling, Ontario and was constructed in 1927, which makes for a classic theatre setting with beautiful architectural features. Headlining this summer are two different shows: “Forever Plaid” and “Footloose.” Both shows promise to be equally entertaining, and every seat in the house is a good one, guaranteed!
Indulge in a Different Kind of Shopping Spree
Looking for a quaint shopping experience away from big-box stores and concrete shopping centres? Take a trip to Bancroft, Perth, Almonte or Haliburton and stay in one of several beautiful B&Bs in the area. Then, spend a day or two exploring the charming town. These towns are full of one-of-a-kind shops, antique stores and eclectic clothing stores; view a list of them here. Stroll the streets, and then stop at one of many restaurants or bistros that are scattered in town for lunch and sangria on the patio. With a large variety, and a setting that can’t be beat, a shopping trip is sure to hit the spot for you and your girlfriends!
Pamper Yourself with the Ultimate Spa Getaway
Imagine catching up with the girls, sipping on a glass of local wine while getting a relaxing massage. Sound inviting? Round up the girls and head to Sir Sam’s Inn at Eagle Lake. Sir Sam’s is the perfect weekend getaway. The suites are spacious and can accommodate a fair-sized group. Three meals per day are served at the Twin Fires Dining restaurant, which can be built into your accommodation rate. Don’t forget to visit Sir Sam’s Wine Cellar, which houses over 100 varieties of wines from around the globe.
Another great location for a relaxing getaway with the girls is at Grail Springs Health & Wellness Spa. This award winning 13 room lakefront retreat will refresh your body, spirit and mind through yoga, guided meditations, organic cuisine and various transformational events. You and the girls can spend a weekend, or even a week – the duration is entirely up to you!
