Top 10 Great Girlfriend Getaways

Hanging out with girlfriends is always a great time.

Have you ever considered branching out from your favorite lunch spot or local mall, though, and instead going to, say, Napa or Chicago?

"Good Morning America" teamed up with Budget Travel magazine to bring you the Top 10 girlfriend getaways.

1. Napa Valley

Napa Valley isn't just about drinking wine, it can also be about making wine. Spend the weekend at Crush Camp. Hosted at Sterling Vineyard and B.V. Vineyard, you go through the major steps of winemaking: clipping grapes off vines, sugar analysis, rolling barrels, and mixing different ingredients to make your own wine.

For more information, call 707-967-5288.

If you're looking for a luxurious place to rest your grape-stomping feet, visit the Calistoga Ranch. There are also more affordable options in the area.

2. Go-Go Girls Getaway in Las Vegas

Go gamble with your gals. With the Go-Go Girls Getaway, you and three of your girlfriends can stay at The Aladdin Hotel and Casino for three nights at $415 a person, including round-trip midweek air from Los Angeles. Other departures are more. Spa treatments are also included in the package, which is a nice break from the slots!

3. Jackson Hole Just for Gals

Calling all nature-loving ladies! Jackson Hole Just for Gals includes three nights at the Teton Mountain Lodge in a two-story, two-bedroom suite with a kitchen and living area.

The package also combines either white-water or scenic rafting on Snake River, with a guided hike in Jackson Hole. Recover afterward with a deep-tissue massage at the spa. Dinner at the Cascade Grill House and breakfast daily at the Cascade is also included.

Dates available: Sept. 1-30 (from $815 a person); July 1-Aug. 31 (from $960 a person)

4. Girls Getaway in Miami

Looking for a way to go glam with your girlfriends? The Girls Getaway in Miami includes two nights in a suite at the Aqua Hotel in South Beach with the following perks: a bottle of champagne, chick lit for bedtime reading, two-hour moped rentals, a limo rental from 10 p.m. to midnight, and VIP passes for some of South Beach's hottest nightclubs.

You're also covered for the next day with a morning-after headache basket with aspirin and hair-of-the-dog Kahlua milkshakes. Breakfast daily and a 2 p.m. checkout is also included.

Available until Dec. 29 for $889 total for four people.

5. The Parker Palm Springs in Palm Springs, Calif.

Host your next pajama party at the chic Parker Palm Springs, which will deliver a selection of chick flicks, popcorn and snacks to your hotel room.

The package includes two nights in a king room; breakfast daily at Norma's (plus a wake-up smoothie from room service one morning); two 30-minute spa treatments with lunch in your robe at the spa; a round of cocktails; a game of petanque at sunset (the hotel has its own court); and dinner at either Norma or Mister Parker's (the latter only if you're staying on a Wednesday or Thursday night). Still hungry? Your package also covers s'mores around the outdoor fire pit.

Dates available: Sundays through Thursdays June 1-Dec. 22 for $595 per person
