Get Up and Out

If you live an active lifestyle, you may not always have time to squeeze it in between juggling work, life, and more. Some of the best times to be active is with your friends, so while you are on your trip, take advantage of kayaking, bicycle trails, and more outdoor activities. Even if you are not seriously active, it is still beneficial to roam around Ridgeland to take in the beautiful nature trails it has to offer. If you are not the biggest fan of the outdoors, consider taking a yoga or pilates class together at a nearby studio. It helps get your day started on the right track.

Retail Therapy is a Must

One of the main purposes of going on the trip is to do the things you and your girlfriends want to do. That includes not shying away from the things you’ve wanted to buy. While we are not saying to blow your spendings in your getaway, you can still purchase a nice outfit or two that makes you feel good. Since Ridgeland is voted as Mississippi’s Best Shopping and Dining Destination, retail therapy is a must. Be sure to visit Renaissance at Colony Park, one of the best shopping malls that has anything and everything you need (or never knew you needed).

Enjoy A Good Meal

While this may appear last on the list, it is actually the most important. After exploring the area all day, winding down for a nice dinner with your closest friends can make for the best part of the trip. But you shouldn’t settle for just any place to eat. Many recommend you try the following:
