Insta-Q&A: Girls-only Getaways in Virginia
Welcome once again to Insta-Q&A, where you can both pose questions to the Travel section and also help out fellow travelers with your own answers to their queries. Today's question comes from a reader who's planning a weekend for her and some girlfriends. If you have some advice for Jo from Columbia, by all means post a comment. And if you have a question yourself, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
She writes: "I have friends in Richmond and Roanoke. We want to have a girls' weekend out where we can both relax and do some fun activities. Could you suggest a place that would require no more than 3-4 hours for any of us to drive? We plan to go in the fall."
My first thought is an elaborate spa experience along the lines of those at Wintergreen Resort in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Staunton. Then there's the fireplace-equipped cottages at Mountain Lake Hotel in Pembroke, where "Dirty Dancing" -- a chick flick if ever there was one -- was filmed. Or the, um, sister islands of Chincoteague and Assateague, where you can...
Okay, I'll cut the crap. I know almost nothing about girls getaways. But I do know girls who like girls getaways, among them Tamra Talmadge-Anderson of Virginia Tourism, who immediately pointed me to the Girls Getaway page on their Web site, which includes the aforementioned suggestions and many more. But I'll bet you have lots of other great ideas. Please join the discussion and post your comments!
