Listicles

Get together with the women in your life — daughters, sisters, partners and friends and celebrate International Women’s Day with a little getaway. World Women’s Day falls on Thursday, March 8, this year and will find many women opting out of shopping, working and the typical expectations placed on a woman — what better way to celebrate than to get away? Or, at the very least, plan a future vacation with the girls.

 

For the Weekend

March can be a tricky time to travel with the changing weather and spring breakers on the loose, so go somewhere unaffected by the elements like Sedona, Ariz. Take a girls trip to the desert enjoying warm weather, outdoor adventure opportunities, luxury spa treatments and endless natural beauty. Check into L’Auberge de Sedona for a blend of nature, outdoor activities, upscale comforts, wellness experiences and some pampering.
