The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Girlfriend Getaways


Aside from beautiful golf courses and resorts galore, if there’s one thing Arizona is known for, it’s the spas. But when you live in the Valley of the Sun, spa’ing can be overwhelming. Exciting since we have some of the best in the world, but overwhelming when you realize there’s about 100 million to choose from.

Every now and then I try to post a few of the best spa packages and deals in town. But for a comprehensive list of any and everything to do with spas in Arizona, it’s Lisa Kasnicky owner of Arizona Spa, that’s got every one of them covered.

This past week, the Spatress released The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Girlfriend Getaways, your one-stop resource to planning the trip of a lifetime with your girls. All-girl trips are getting more and more common, after all we need time to decompress sans men, right?

Kasinicky clearly thought so and mapped it all out for you. In The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Girlfriend Getaways, you’ll find everything from tips on packing to historical trips and, of course, spa trips too. She even compiles shopping trips and details (think tips across the country on the best boutique and outlet shopping). Um, can you say “yay!”

If you’re planning an all-girls getaway, this is one book you should not be without. And hey, it supports our local authors too and you certainly can’t go wrong with that.
