sdp-ex-018If you are a single mom not looking forward to Valentines day; you are not alone. For a fun change of scenery why not gather up your girlfriends and make this upcoming holiday weekend a Galentines Getaway. Here are a few places that are catering just to you and your girls.


Right in the heart of San Diego’s downtown Gaslamp District is Kimpton’s highly contemporary Hotel Palomar. The 211-room surf-inspired hotel is offering a “Suite 16” package. It includes 16 percent discounts for the room, spa treatment and dinner at Saltbox. And if you book a suite, you get chocolates upon arrival (to sweeten the deal). This package is available from January 1 through March 31, 2016. A short 5 block walk away is Seersucker Restaurant. My girlfriends and I ate there on our girlfriend getaway. There were 7 of us and we all shared  a variety of their small plates. And yo have to save room for the warm brown butter cake. To die for!

For an totally real cowgirl experience take your friends and visit The Ranch at Rock Creek. This luxurious ranch is situated on 6,600 acres of rugged wilderness where you can also fish, hike and bike and of course ride the horsie’s!


The Inn at Laguna Beach and Laguna Beach House are hosting a “No boys allowed” GALentine’s Day package. It is  the complete girlfriends’ getaway with a bottle of champagne upon arrival and an in-7446_76_broom pampering session with massages and blow outs, plus a $40 Uber credit for a night out on the town. Sleep in with late check out. Minimum booking two-nights, starting from $1,289 for The Inn at Laguna Beach and $1,157 for Laguna Beach House.


For a completely serene and relaxing getaway take a trip to central Cali and visit the  Ojai Resort. They have beautifully healthy cuisine, a variety of spa treatments and for a uniquely fun experience you and your friends can  book the aromatherapy class. You will all learn how to blend aromas to make your very own signature perfume. A one-of-a-kind scent and one-of-a-kind activity.  apothecary-blending


Celebrate with your friends and escape to the cool retro Lone Star Court boutique hotel in Austin. Situated right in the Domain shopping area is the perfect spot for all the things girlfriends enjoy doing – shopping, eating, & drinking. You and your girls can enjoy a spa day take in a movie at an iPic movie theater. And, if you don’t want to leave Lone Star Court, they have a food truck court trailer serving jalepeno mac and cheese and a pulled pork taco, you can make your own s’mores at the firepits, live music and a pool. For more information, or to make a reservation call 855.596.3398.ph_801_neonsign_G5C8280_shadow
