As more and more women only holidays are becoming popular, here are 8 Best Girlfriend Getaways in the US:

Sheer culinary Mecca, San Fran is located on the fringes of the gorgeous California coastline and is the perfect destination for a girl’s weekend away. Great weather, fab shopping, exciting entertainment, (cultural attractions if you must!), lots of excellent wine and beautiful scenery are the only ingredients needed.
2. Las Vegas
With a well-oiled reputation for being the party capital of the world, Sin City is the pure epitome of luxury, opulence and indulgence. If you are after the ultimate party, non-stop cocktails, back to back excitement and very little sleep, then Las Vegas is the perfect place to let your hair down. Meander down the famous Las Vegas strip and let your inner jungle woman run free.
3. Austin, Texas
A retail therapy enthusiast’s haven, Austin has something for perfect girlfriend getaways.

See live jazz, indie and rock bands and boogie the night away, which is the perfect ending to a long day of shopping and fun with the girls.

It is something of a contradiction to come to New York to slow down, when it is one of the world’s busiest cities. But without kids or responsibilities, New York is one of the perfect girlie vacation destinations. Paint the town red, see a real live Broadway show, stay out late a dinner and just feel free to explore the city that never sleeps. Take advantage of not having to be home to put kids to bed or to make dinner.
5. Los Angeles
Looking for the ultimate vacations with BFFs? LA is one place where you can experience life like a celebrity, dress up to the nines.

Experience the glamorous life of the Malibu girls who shop and play here every day.
6. Napa Valley
The Napa Valley is totally geared up for an all girls getaway, and offer breakaway packages just for women who are looking for a total escape from the pressures of home life, doing the school run, making dinner, fighting with kids to do homework and preschool tantrums.

The lively and vibrant French Quarter has an effervescent feel, heaving with revelers and vivacious locals. Experience the jazz of Bourbon Street and the true spirit of Louisiana on your girl’s weekend away.
