Girlfriend Getaway Packages

Hectic family schedules and work obligations have a way of keeping women and their friends from getting together often, but a girlfriends’ getaway to a California bed and breakfast inn can be the perfect antidote. Several California inns offer special packages for groups of women looking to escape the day-to-day grind and spend quality time together.
