Every month in her Window Seat or Aisle Seat column family travel expert Kerri Zane shows moms how they can plan trips to create memories, get out of the classroom, and combine learning and travel. Not this time.
Now that the kids are back in schools, here’s how moms can plan a girlfriend getaway just for themselves.
Moms, we have successfully navigated the summer season filling our kids daily calendar’s with one activity or another. We shopped for all the necessary books, backpacks, pencils, and planners to get them geared up and ready for the school season. It’s still warm enough for some outdoor fun, so how about treating you and your mommy gal pals to your own brand of active summer season getaway. Here are a few of my favorite rough and tumble with a touch of luxury escapes.

For moms looking to explore the great outdoors without sacrificing a day at the beach, Myrtle Beach has 60 miles of coastline. It also offers plenty of other options: big game fishing, riverboat tours of the intracoastal waterway, kayaking in the back bays and marshes plus a host of more traditional water sports. When you’re done exploring the there are plenty of spa treatments to try and just a few cocktails to drink. Add some variety to your stay and head to the south end of the Grand Strand to check out Brookgreen Gardens, where you can’t miss the sculpture.
