Girls Getaways by Smith Luxury Escapes

Each year I personally host 1-2 Girlfriend Getaways just for My Special Gal Pals. These are usually short Getaways (3-4 days) to some of my favorite destinations. Sometimes, they are a little longer. As mothers, wives, professionals, nurses, lawyers, teachers and EVERYTHING to EVERYONE in our lives. We deserve to getaway to escape and be pampered. 

My exclusive Girls Getaways include Luxury Stays, Pampering, and Top Notch Amenities, to make you feel like the Royalty you are. These trips are designed to let you relax and recharge so that when you return to your "everyday life" you will be ready to be Superwoman again!

We're taking it back to NYC for 2022! This weekend Getaway will be packed with all the things I love about New York!

Saturday, Feb 12th

On Saturday, we will start the day with Brunch at Ruby’s Vintage in Harlem. Ruby's Vintage is a sleek eatery featuring handcrafted cocktails, tasty small plates, and a bottomless brunch. The name is inspired by the childhood home of legendary artist and activist Ruby Dee, who grew up in the building. Located on the historic Striver's Row, the intimate space evokes a sense of nostalgia with design elements that reference Harlem's legendary salons.

After brunch, you will have time to explore Harlem on your own and take in the architecture, music & people. Stop by the world famous Apollo, historic Abyssinian Baptist Church, the Schomberg Center and more.

We will return to our hotel and prepare for our evening activities. Included in your package is dinner at Virgil’s BBQ. Located in the heart of Times Square, Virgil’s Real BBQ is the perfect spot to get southern home-style cooking in the Big Apple.

After dinner, we will journey to the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre to experience Black Excellence on Broadway. Tony Award® winner and five-time Emmy Award nominee Phylicia Rashad returns to Broadway in the premiere of Skeleton Crew, written by Tony Award® nominee Dominique Morisseau and directed by Tony Award® winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson. This touching and entertaining production will be the perfect end to a fabulous day in New York.

FAQ's

I don't have a roommate, but would like to be paired with someone. Can you provide a roommate for me?

At this time because of COVID precautions, we are unable to pair you with a roommate. However, join our Facebook Group, Girlz Getaways and post that you are looking for a roommate and you may be able to find a new Girlfriend!

I heard there are new COVID-19 regulations in New York regarding indoor experiences. Will I need a COVID-19 vaccination? 

Yes. Beginning in August, NYC instituted new policies requiring guests who will be dining in, enjoying theater shows and visiting any other indoor experiences to provide proof of vaccination. You will need to have either the original or a photocopy of your COVID-19 vaccination card available to enjoy the activities planned for the weekend.​
