So one day during the hustle and bustle of everyday life, you realize you need something: a fun weekend getaway with the girls. Whether you’re a mother looking for some relaxation, a young crowd looking to have fun, or even a bachelorette party looking to celebrate before a wedding, you’ll find plenty of fun things to do in Greater Raleigh.

No matter your age, occupation, or lifestyle, there’s one thing every girl can enjoy, and that’s being pampered at a relaxing day spa. There are dozens upon dozens of spas, med spas, and salons where you and your fellow ladies can indulge in everything from massages and body wraps to highlights and manicures.

A group of ladies can’t go wrong with a little retail therapy. After you’ve relaxed at a spa, head over to any of the major shopping centers in the area for boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, and for stores that you’ll only find again hours away.  Choose from Cameron Village, Triangle Town Center, Crabtree Valley Mall, North Hills, and so much more.

For a nightlife experience that will be fun and sophisticated, have a drink at one of the many lounges or bars in the area. It doesn’t matter what part of town you’re in, this comprehensive list will help you find the venue for you.
