Santa Fe, New Mexico
Looking to tap into your creative side? If your idea of a perfect afternoon is strolling through art galleries while you sip on cappuccino in the afternoon and wine in the evening, Santa Fe is the destination for you. Gallery after gallery can be found among the Railyard Art District and Canyon Road areas. Once you’ve had enough of observing art, you can try your own hand at it by signing up for jewelry-making classes, glassblowing, painting, pottery, photography, and more.

Maybe it’s not nightlife, shopping or theater that you’re looking for in your girlfriend getaway. Maybe it’s time to really get in touch with your inner self, work through issues, or just receive spiritual wisdom. In Sedona, you can do all of this just by visiting the land. While other cities may boast five-star spiritual retreats, all you have to do in Sedona is be open and visit the land. Native Americans are here to guide you along in your journey, and when you walk away from Sedona, you will walk away a changed woman.

Want to do some shopping and take in a show and absorb some history and stand in awe at great architecture? Then New York, New York is the only place to be! New York City is filled to the brim with things to do, and you can do most of them at any time of the day or night. Play it up really touristy if you want, visiting the Statue of Liberty, go to the Empire State Building, and walk around Times Square. Or, check out the sites that aren’t so crowded such as Queens Botanical Garden, Nuyorican Poets Café, Little India, Chelsea Galleries, and the “other” Chinatown – otherwise known as Flushing, Queens.
