Spending time with close friends is scientifically proven to increase happiness and healthiness, but we don’t need science to convince us! One of the best ways to unwind is to spend time with your best friends. A girl’s trip is the perfect way to get your dose of friend time and share new experiences with one another. Whether your group of friends is more active and vivacious, or your circle prefers more of a laid back, relaxed plan, Alpharetta is the best city to revel in with your besties!
The best way to kick off a weekend with the girls is to prepare yourself mentally and physically, engaging in activities that make the stresses of the past week seem like they are a distant memory. We know there is something magical about having the perfect outfit, so we suggest picking out a new set of yoga attire at Lululemon or Athleta. Don your new activewear plus get all the Zen vibes flowing at a Lift Yoga + Body or Oya Yoga Studio yoga class. Both yoga studios offer single class opportunities with your group of girls. You will feel renewed in body and spirit in no time!
A good facial can make you feel like a new person, and we’re starry-eyed over the luxurious facials offered at Natural Body Spa & Shop. Try a signature facial that will exfoliate and nourish your skin. If your group loves the pampering process, extend your facial into a full spa package, adding massages, manicures and more.
For an awesome hair day, book a stop at Van Michael Salon for a blow out and a style. Van Michael uses Aveda hair products that will leave your hair looking and feeling fabulous. If you love the Aveda experience, we recommend making a trip to the Aveda store at North Point Mall.
