Nationwide (July 30, 2013) -- Planning large group respites are becoming more common place as women seek ways broaden their networks, re-connect with friends and experience different environments on heir "bucket lists." Many women love the outdoors, exploring new places, have talents they want to share and want to get away to relax and they are willing to put aside their usual vacation habits and go on a girls' getaway with friends and strangers. With times so tough and many women want to save and forgo vacations, a girlfriends retreat is a perfect way to experience a wonderful place and join with other women while not spending a lot of money.

2. Dissect the list - Identify the elements you think others would also enjoy are doable and affordable
