A little best friend bonding is exactly what the doctor ordered, and now that the cold weather is here it's just another reason to make you want to get out of your freezing cold rut. If you're at a loss for great vacation ideas, here are a few amazing options that both you and your girlfriend will love!

If you're in the market for long days spent on the beach, eating great seafood, and doing a few deep sea diving adventures, Fiji is a fantastic destination. Sure there are plenty of super expensive resorts you could stay at if you have the cash, but there is a large backpacker community there which means cheap guesthouses, transportation, and activities for you to take part in. Check out the fun activities in the Yasawa Islands and get a Bula Boat Pass to save money.
2. Nashville, Tennessee

This southern city is the perfect destination for any and all music lovers. The locals are friendly, the food is great and relatively cheap, and there is always a honky tonk to check into so you and your friends can dance the night away. During the day take the Olive & Sinclair chocolate tour for $5 and then at night hit up Sinema, a renovated 1940's movie theater turned restaurant/bar.
3. Napa Valley

When it's time to get down to business and start sampling the best wine's California has to offer, Napa Valley is the place to be. Stay in one of the many hotels in the area and take a Vineyard tour either by bus or by bike.
4. Spa Vacation

No matter where you reside there is bound to be a fantastic spa within a few hours by car. Take your best friend with you to a spa resort and go in on a package together. Enjoy the amenities like whirlpools, sauna's, and the on-scene bars. Add in a few little extras to treat yourselves like an aromatherapy massage or a full body linen wrap.

WWOOFing stands for Word Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms and it is hands down one of the coolest experiences I have ever had. My bff and I decided to WWOOF in Ireland after undergrad and we traveled around the UK for 4 months and fully enjoyed life as backpacker, hippie free spirits. Many different countries have the WWOOF program so I'd suggest picking a destination first and finding the website associated with that country. Be sure to read all about your WWOOF host options and let them know a bit about you as well. The best advice I have is to be open and there is no way you won't have the time of your life!
