There should always be room for shopping when it comes to girlfriend getaways. And big cities such as New York with the nine shopping floors at Bloomingdales as well as a good variety of independent shops, stand out great options. Elizabeth Street, for instance, is the home of independent boutiques with fashionable dresses and stylish heels. For those who cannot get enough of vintage, there is East Seventh and East Ninth Streets. Madison Avenue on the other hand could even be considered ‘over the top’ with their strips of designer shops.
But planning a trip to New York with the girls can be exhausting with all the shopping attractions and night life. A great idea is to add a spa stop for a bit of pampering and relaxation.
One option to consider is Copperhood Inn and Spa – an ideal destination for a spa weekend getaway. Located about two hours from New York, it is all about pampering. With an indulgent European style, it is perfect for those who feel they need a big break. The spa has a holistic health focus with varied activities to suit all preferences.
To start with, the spa boasts a 60 foot indoor pool for the water babies in the group. Hydrotherapy tubs and showers are also available as well as a steam room, Jacuzzi and sauna. Standard indoor fitness activities are offered and a private tennis court accessible through a hanging bridge. Outdoor activities such as hiking and skiing can also be enjoyed depending on the season. This means that this specific spa can enjoyed any time of the year.

For a lot of people, spa getaways are all about therapies and massages. At Copperwood the massage rooms are cozy, lush and designed to help day-to-day stresses melt away. The licensed therapies are very particular about clients’ needs and a good range of treatments are available.
These activities may be great alone, but always seem to become better when enjoyed in the company of girlfriends. A hen night, a birthday celebration, a promotion or whichever excuse you and your friends can think of. The important thing is that the experience is best shared.
