Summer is drawing near, and there is no better time to plan a fun weekend girls’ getaway! One of my favorite destinations for a quick trip with a few of my favorite ladies is New Orleans! There is so much to see and do, yet this special city still maintains a laid back casual vibe. That atmosphere is an ideal combo for having a blast and doing a bit of kicking back and relaxing all in the same weekend.
FestiGals, happening June 11th through 14th, is the perfect opportunity to head to NOLA with your best friends, mom or sisters for a weekend of fun for a great cause! FestiGals is a nonprofit organization for women. They have been hosting this fabulous event since 2011, educating and inspiring women from all over the country while raising awareness and resources for breast cancer related nonprofits.
This year, the conference will take place at the JW Marriott. I have stayed there several times, and it is an amazing venue with an unbeatable location. A full schedule is available on the FestiGals website. There are tons of exciting events happening over the weekend. You can purchase tickets for the entire package or pick and choose the seminars, parties and entertainment you would enjoy the most. The stiletto stroll and after party sounds like a can’t miss party. I can’t even imagine the delicious food and beverages that will be offered!
I cannot wait to head to New Orleans for the weekend this summer to make some new memories and visit a few of my old favorites like St. James Cheese Company, The Ruby Slipper and of course, Cafe Du Monde. I won’t lie, my Nola trips always revolve around food!
