Girlfriend's Getaway


Every now and then, we need to take a step back from work and every day responsibilities to reboot.  Getting together with close friends makes it even more fun.  There are so many ways to enjoy each other's company and have a good time; especially in the High Point area.  Nothing sets the mood better than a visit to a local spa.  Start your day at About Face Day Spa, where you can melt away the tensions from your body and mind, getting you ready for your day of fun.  Just around the corner from the spa is The Market, an antique furniture find that offers not only a variety of arts, crafts and retail items, but also one of the best cups of coffee and cake you will ever put in your mouth.  May I suggest ordering your coffee when you arrive so you can enjoy looking at all they offer while sipping on your cup of joe!  Allen and James Interiors is just a block away and offers a beautiful setting in a historical home.  Inside you'll find not only furniture but accessories that include everything from candles and soap to throws and pillows.  It's a great place to find that special gift that you can't find just anywhere.  


Enjoy a local favorite for lunch at Sammy G's Tavern.  Intimate, inviting and elegant is what you’ll find when you and your girlfriends arrive at the door.  Be sure to start your lunch with their Royal Thai Shrimp paired with any of their crisp white wines. 


Ready for some shopping? Enjoy the convenience, variety and selection in a beautiful, outdoor shopping village at The Shops at Friendly Center featuring REI, Ann Taylor, Coldwater Creek, Chicos, Talbots, DSW and more. Just 30 miles further north, in Mebane, you'll find Tanger Outlets featuring Jockey, Van Heusen, Tommy Hilfiger, Coach, Michael Kors and more.



After a few hours of shopping, you'll be ready to enjoy dinner back in High Point.  Blue Water Grille provides a friendly atmosphere and offers a fresh selection of meats and fish.  The crab dip is a great appetizer and comes highly recommended! 


There are several night life spots within a mile of Blue Water Grille you can plug into after dinner.  Wifi Wine Bar offers a selection of wine and beers and is a great place to listen to music.  Brown Truck Brewery, has several beers on tap and most weekends offers entertainment.  The outdoor atmosphere is welcoming; whether it's a beautiful summer night under the stars or a colder night next to the fire pit.  Either way, you'll enjoy your surroundings.  Real Kitchen and Market is another favorite, just off Main Street.  They have a great selection of wines and beer and a relaxing ambiance.  If you're still hungry they have a cheese and cracker plate that's out of this world!
