We know that Virginia is for Lovers, and as much as we adore this season of love, we can also appreciate that all the romance isn’t for everyone! If Valentine’s Day has you sick of flowers and love songs, we think you should make a point to celebrate Galentine’s Day instead! If you’re not really sure where to start, we have just what you need! Stay with King’s Creek and check out our recommended Williamsburg Girls’ Trip Itinerary!
If you’re desperately in need of a girls’ day… or maybe two, grab your favorite gals and plan a trip to Greater Williamsburg! This February, remember it’s not just our significant others who need to feel the love. Show your besties, your closest confidant or your partner-in-crime how much they mean to you with an no-romance getaway!
Start with coffeehouse breakfast
Visit a local cafe, where the coffee is strong but the friendships are stronger. We recommend stopping at Aromas World for their specialty coffees and gourmet bakery! This fast-casual cafe serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, made with fresh ingredients.
This coffeehouse is the perfect cozy environment for you and your gals to get your day started and brew some new memories! Enjoy fresh roasted Arabica bean coffees, fine teas and tasty casual foods, all for affordable prices!
Browse world-class art
If you and your gal pals enjoy places that inspire and enrich your spirit, your next stop should be Colonial Williamsburg’s world-class art museums.
Explore the galleries’ work, created by talented, self-trained artisans and craftsmen, housed within the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum. This assemblage of paintings, sculptures and creative objects is one of the world’s largest American folk art collections.
Afterwards, take a tour of the “finer things” in the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum. This museum is home to 15 galleries, which display furniture, metals, ceramics, glass, paintings, prints, firearms and textiles from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Learn about the lifestyle of those with wealth and influence through their furniture and decorations.
Grab a bite to eat
Food and friends are an unmatched pair! Delight your taste buds with a sea-to-table culinary destination like, Waypoint Seafood and Grill. This menu is a celebration of Chesapeake flavors, with ingredients grown at local farms and caught in regional waters.
Come try their seasonally-influenced menu, representing modern, regional American cuisine, with classical culinary roots.
Hit the outlets
A girls’ weekend simply is not complete without at least a little bit of shopping! Plan a “quick trip” to the Williamsburg Premium Outlets, and the discounts will make you want to stay! Browse your favorite fashion brands, featuring savings of up to 65% off. Shop what’s trending, season must-haves and remarkable deals! View today’s deals and steals here.
After you’ve shopped ‘til you dropped, it should be around wine-o’clock. Venture through the gently rolling hills until you land upon the Williamsburg Winery. This plot on the southern side of Williamsburg proper is home to rich history and quiet surroundings.
Relax with one of the winemaker’s masterful creations, or browse a collection of flavors with one of their tasting tours. Sample their reds, whites, desserts and specialties, and enjoy an evening celebrating your friendship!
Enjoy a bestie dinner date
Complement your wine-ing experience with some amazing dining! Conveniently located at the Williamsburg Winery, Café Provençal embodies the food and wine culture found in Provence, France. Discover French-inspired creations, which will bring to life the food and culture of the founder’s European influence. Enjoy sensational flavors in a comfortable setting to finish off a wonderful day with your comrades!
Fuel up with breakfast
If you love your friends a latte, get ready for the next day on your girls’ getaway with yet another coffeehouse. Culture Cafe serves casual cuisine in an eclectic atmosphere, serving small but surprising plates!
This cafe serves to unite cultures and flavors, with a unique communal dining experience. The small plates are designed for you to try more than one selection, or share multiple dishes amongst friends!
Spoil yourselves with a spa day
The goal of the Williamsburg Girls’ Trip Itinerary is to have fun and reconnect with your favorite ladies, but also to relax and avoid your normal stressors. Enjoy your break from your day-to-day obligations, and take this time to reward yourself for all of your hard work.
We recommend having a group spa day during your visit! King’s Creek is in close proximity to a number of Williamsburg’s finest spas! Try a hot salt rock massage, full body sugar scrub or a facial/body skin care treatment. Find a therapeutic option that will revitalize your mind, body and soul! Check out our recommended spa locations here.
Treat yourself to something sweet
After taking care of your muscles and your mind, it’s time to take care of your taste buds! Treat yourselves to one of your favorite guilty pleasures. Williamsburg has a number of amazing dessert destinations that are sure to be an instant mood booster!
Try Blackbird Bakery for fresh pastries, cookies, and specialty cakes that are a splendid afternoon pick-me-up! Or you can embrace the sweet aroma in Kilwin’s Williamsburg and their freshly made chocolate, fudge and homemade waffle cones. If ice cream is more your style, stop by Bruster’s for a scoop of your favorite flavor!
Whatever your group’s favorite indulgence may be, make your new memories together even sweeter!
Stroll through Riverwalk Landing
Located along the York River, Riverwalk Landing is one of the Greater Williamsburg area’s favorite hidden gems! While most consider Yorktown for its rich history, you can also find incredible food, boutique shops and romantic sails!
Bring your squad to the landing, and graze through specialty stores for amazing art, jewelry and home decor! After you’ve gotten to know this local treasure, eat at any of their one-of-a-kind restaurants, including seafood, sushi, gourmet burgers or artisan pizzas! This is a great way to make sure this weekend trip goes down as one for the books. Toast to having more good times with great people, and start planning your next grand adventure together!
