Girlfriend Getaway to Norfolk

Hand the kids over to your significant other, put the dirty laundry down & grab your girl tribe!


Let’s not count the calories on this trip, after all, you need to indulge a little, right? Spoil yourself with bountiful pasta dishes from Leone’s, fill up on taco’s & margaritas from Luna Maya, or slurp down copious amounts of oysters from A.W. Shucks. Since you won’t be skipping out on dessert this trip, check out our sweet treats here! 


Head to our local shops to grab unique gifts for the family, outlet shopping for that “treat yourself” moment and the downtown mall for everything in between. Take a break from shopping and indulge on some deep southern comfort food at Handsome Biscuit, or maybe that mid-day ice cream cone at Doumar’s. However you spend the day, Norfolk’s ever-evolving shopping scene is perfect for you and the gals. 

Norfolk Botanical Garden

Take a walk-through Norfolk Botanical Garden, 175 acres for the perfect backdrop to any photo shoot you and your friends are looking for. Enjoy foliage in the fall, roses blooming during the summer, Million Bulb walk during the Holidays and flourishing azaleas all spring long!  Check out their gift shop for some great souvenirs!

Cocktails & Wine

Gossip time isn’t complete without a cocktail in hand, right? Debatably the best cocktail bar in the city, Four Eleven, has a selection of drinks that range from a classic old-fashioned to “Bartenders Experience.” Four Eleven’s entertaining bartenders will ask for your name, two quirky questions and your liquor preference to craft a drink that is uniquely yours.

Take a sip and fascination will take over while the libation liberates your spirit as you taste a cocktail that was made perfectly for your taste buds. Head to Press 626 for their outstanding wine selection, Grain for rooftop views or try some local wine and beer at Elation Brewery. Skipping the adult beverages this trip? No worries, Cure Coffeehouse has lattes and teas to get you through the night.
