Sometimes life can get a little hectic and you just need a night out with your girls. Next time you need a break from the kids, or maybe even a break from your significant other, get your group of girlfriends together and take a road trip to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to try a couple of these awesome ideas. Better yet, make it a weekend getaway and squeeze in all five!
1. Drink wine
When a woman need’s to unwind, often the first solution to come to mind is to grab a glass… or bottle… of wine. Adams County has many wineries with amazing views and the finest wines. You can plan your visit around one of the many events the wineries hold every week including paint nights, karaoke and dancing.
If wine isn’t your drink of choice, check out the Adams County Pour Tour craft beverage trail with wines, ciders, beer AND spirits. Grab a passport and collect stamps from the various participating partners. You can earn cool prizes along the way!
2. Shop ‘til you drop
Who doesn’t love some retail therapy? Downtown Gettysburg’s trendy shops and boutiques are a shopper’s paradise. Whether you’re looking for jewelry, art, clothing or gifts – you’ll find it! Just make sure you get there earlier in the evening before they close.
For some late night shopping, you can visit Gettysburg during First Friday. During the first Friday of every month, shops stay open late and offer special discounts as well as sweet treats and live music to those who stop by. Another great girl’s night shopping option are The Outlet Shoppes at Gettysburg. With over 70 stores and awesome deals on brand name clothing, it’s every shopper’s dream!
3. Listen to live music
Let music soothe your soul and check out a live music performance in Gettysburg. Many of our restaurants are known to bring in local musicians, including The Livery, The Pike Restaurant and Garryowen Irish Pub. You can also catch live performances as you drink a local alcoholic beverage at Battlefield Brew Works or one of the wineries mentioned above.
