We’ve all had that moment at one time or another where we’ve told our friends, “We need to get away for a weekend.” Then life gets in the way of the best ideas somehow fall to the wayside while we pay our bills, go to work, and live basically for each and every weekend. But what if you could get away for a weekend with your best friends, those girls that make you laugh and let you be yourself? Wouldn’t time away make you feel better? More alive? More able to cope with the otherwise incessant drudgery of your Monday to Friday life? I think it can and it’s something everyone should budget into their lives. If we make time for our family, our children, our parents and siblings, our jobs, the gym, our weekly commitments, then why not dedicate at least one weekend or even a week every year to spend some quality time with your good friends?
As the saying goes, there’s no time like the present. I’m currently in the US Virgin Islands and the goal of this trip is to highlight all of the possibilities that exist here for any type of vacation, but especially for girlfriend getaways. With daytime high temperatures around 88 degrees and nighttime temperatures near 79, who wouldn’t want to escape the Polar Vortex and the crazy weather the United States is experiencing and venture down to USVI?
Follow me as I travel around St. Thomas and St. John this week here on the blog as well as on all of my social media channels (FaceBook, Twitter, and Instagram). I’ll be using the hashtag #USVInice which coincides with the US Virgin Island’s great ongoing summer travel promotion, Virgin Islands Nice. You can save a minimum of $500 on a stay of five or more consecutive nights at participating properties on St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas by visiting http://www.VisitUSVI.com/usvinice. Book now through July 31 for travel between May 15 and Sept. 30, 2014, to receive the first night free, a $200 instant credit and $300 in certificates that can be redeemed at participating restaurants, boutiques, spas and attractions across the Territory.
But why the US Virgin Islands? In addition to all that it has to offer, and believe me — it’s more than you can ever imagine, did you know that US citizens don’t need a passport?
Sit back, relax, and get ready to travel along with me as I get ready for a week’s worth of exciting adventures, shopping, dining, adult beverages, beaches, and more!
