Park House Bed and Breakfast Greenville SC is such a beautiful place to stay! We spent a long weekend in Greenville and could not have made a better choice. The owner, Jessica, cooks the most amazing breakfasts. The rooms are perfect and the afternoon wine and cheese is icing on the cake. The property is in a perfect spot close to downtown on a historic street and they will make reservations at a nearby spa if you would like.

March is Sonoma Valleys Girlfriend Getaway month. This is the perfect time for great deals and events.

We booked Beau Private Wine Tours 'Daily Limo Tour' which included transportation, lunch, and five wineries. We got into the Limo and made instant friends with our fellow 'tasters' for the day. We toured 2 wineries in the morning then had a picnic style lunch with wine. We toured 3 more wineries that afternoon. There is no other way to tour the wine country. Would highly recommend!

Sonoma, CA, United States : The Sunflower Cafe was filled with locals, so we knew we were in the right place. The food was excellent but you have to wait in line for a little bit to give your order. All of our sandwiches and salads were fabulous and fresh. The lemonade was good but they sell out quickly. Recommend sitting on the patio. They will bring your order when it is ready. Would go back again.

Sonoma County, CA, United States : Costeaux Bakery is a family owned and operated bakery with award winning breads and pastries. The bakery is fun, open, and a great place to chill for a while. They serve breakfast and lunch with weekend specials. The breads are amazing and the breakfast is excellent. Be prepared to wait in line and spend a little more than you intended!

Let's just start by saying the have a chocolate tasting room!!! Wine Country Chocolates is the best chocolate shop! We had a 4 chocolate sampler and everything was to die for! Great staff, chocolate tastings, and atmosphere. And, it is connected to a coffee shop next door. If you are in Sonoma Plaza, this stop is a must!

Sonoma County, CA, United States : Osmosis Day Spa is a wonderful spa sanctuary with a great spa menu!! I chose the Rejuvenation package for 2.5 hours of bliss. A cedar enzyme bath and 75-minute Swedish massage, I felt like a brand new woman! Beautiful facilities, great staff and good prices, it’s definitely worth checking out.

Santa Rosa, CA, United States : Thrive Yoga Studio, Santa Rosa, CA is a great opportunity to relax and rejuvenate between wineries. This is a very serene studio. As beginner yogis, we took the Vinyasa flow 1 class. Our instructor was great and we really enjoyed the class. Wish we had a place like this back home.

Longboat Key, FL, United States : Longboat Key Club on Longboat Key, just outside of Sarasota, is excellent. We stayed for three nights: 2 rooms with 2 double beds and balconies overlooking the ocean and dunes. We sat on the balcony each morning and had coffee and enjoyed the views, The beach service is awesome with free chairs, umbrellas, wi-fi and great drink service .Great beach getaway.

Indiana Dunes is an amazing state park on Lake Michigan. Lots of activities from sunbathing, hiking biking, fishing and camping. There are also lots of accommodations and restaurants nearby if camping is not your thing. Overall, there is an activity for everyone here and it’s an excellent place to relax for the weekend.

Empire, MI, United States : Cottonwood Inn Mi is a charming retreat in the beautiful town of Holland, MI. We loved our stay here. The staff is so friendly and the breakfast was amazing!. It's the perfect place to relax, I feel so recharged. Holland offers plenty to do. We spent two days on the beach and enjoyed a day of shopping and didn't have enough time to stop at all the shops! The downtown is true Norman Rockwell-esque with lots of shops, boutiques, and eateries. We'd love to return to Cottonwood Inn again.

We have stayed at Cherry Tree quite a few times. The location of Cherry Tree Inn is great, right on the bay, beautiful views all year round. The rooms are always nice, the indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs are great! You can't beat the clean, beautiful beach. The hot breakfast and the 24 hour coffee and tea bar are awesome! No better place to stay.

We took the wine tasting cruise and it was a fantastic experience at Tall Ship Sailing Traverse. None of us had ever been on such a massive boat before. Everything was wonderful: the wind in my hair, the views, the gentle rock of the boat, the wine, the staff, everything was just great! You must try this unique experience. They have lots of different sailings and the average time is about 2 hours.

Riding in a hot air balloon is on my bucket list and I will be marking it off this summer! I have a reservation with Grand Traverse Balloons for a group flight and I cannot wait!

The Village at Grand Traverse Commons is a former mental hospital with beautiful architecture that has been converted into a mall. It’s really cool that this place was saved and made into something useful and cool. There are some shops, a few restaurants, and a winery where you can do tastings. We visited Left Foot Charley winery and had a good time talking, trying wines and eating yummy cheese. I would recommend the winery if you are in the area.

Grand Traverse County, MI, United States : We had a truly enjoyable stay. Grand Traverse Resort and Spa was another new and beautiful part of our country for us to visit and we were surprised with the amount of activities (wineries, beach hikes) and historical sites to do, take in, and enjoy as well as a very relaxing stay at the resort, which is well laid out. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean, inviting, and spacious, allowing for conversation. Our room was roomy, comfortable and quiet. We will return to enjoy the area, hotel, and spa!
