After what feels like eons of travel restrictions, virtual concerts, FaceTime dates, and Teleparties it’s safe to say we’re all due for a girls trip with our besties. And the sky’s the limit when it comes to planning activities for a girls trip.
If it’s been a while since your group has gathered, you may want to consider a few indoor activities during the trip to make sure you get some quality time together and give everyone an opportunity to bond over girl talk.
And if you’re anything like me, the second best part of going on a girls trip is planning all the fun things to do, so let’s get into a few indoor activities for a girls trip that you can share with your gals!
It’s always a good time for self care with your girlfriends. What’s great about having a day dedicated to spa treatments is that you can customize the experience to be as simple or extravagant as you wish.
Bonding with your babes while getting mani/pedis, doing each other’s hair, and a special day of relaxing will guarantee high quality mems and give everyone a moment to just vibe during this vacation.
If you’re having a more cozy girls getaway tucked away from town, here are some things to pack in your luggage for an at-home DIY spa day:
- Sheet masks
- Under eye patches
- Press on nails
- Hair masks
- Lip masks
- Body butter
- Nail polish
- Pumice stone
- Sugar body scrub
- Fuzzy robes
On the other hand, if you’re preparing for a more luxe getaway with your friends and have the budget to book a day at a local spa or wellness center, it’s absolutely worth the price tag. Most spas welcome guests with a full day of access to various accommodations including jacuzzis, steam rooms, saunas, and often include a bit of bubbly with lunch.
This foodie trend has been taking our feeds by storm. If you haven’t heard of a board party before, this hands-on indoor activity encourages everyone to prepare a specially curated food board. Inspired by the concept of a charcuterie board, you and your girls will get a chance to express your love for each other through food and feast together while doing this.
Feel free to show your style! Having seen boards themed by color, flavor, one food item and even a McDonald’s board… there’s really unlimited possibilities. Here’s a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
- Butter board
- Taco board
- French fry board
- Cookie board
This would make for an awesome activity to do on the first night of the girls trip to kick off the stay and give you and your girls a moment to set the tone for the trip and talk over any last minute plans while sharing some yummy snacks.
If you ask me, you can literally never go wrong with wine tasting. It’s also a relatively simple activity to organize since most wineries let groups schedule visits ahead of time.
Depending on how hands-on you want to be with planning, and the amount of time you want to commit to this activity, you can opt to work with a local tour company to schedule a day full of tastings at multiple wineries with a driver or hop around with your girls as you please.
So, if a simple but chic activity is of interest, make sure to add this to your girls trip. Or you could even schedule a wine weekend dedicated to this activity alone.

We’ll be the first to admit that this indoor activity is not for everyone, but if your group is up for something different, give a powerpoint party a shot.
How these work is that first a general theme for the party is selected. For example “everyone as a Disney princess,” “when we peaked,” or even “describing our group as brunch items.” Then each person creates a powerpoint presentation before the trip with their answers and gives detailed descriptions while you gather for the party.
This is a very interactive and playful activity that’s bound to get some laughs. And if your group is up to adding alcohol to this, you can turn it into a drinking game by having everyone drink any time the presenter says the words “um” or “like” in between thoughts.

Whether your latest hobby is paint by numbers, knitting, or clay making, dedicating some time to play with your girls gives everyone a chance to do an activity they each like, and share it with the group. Cooperative play gives everyone a sense of joy knowing that they’re individually working on a project they enjoy, but still doing something together.
Consider gathering supplies to make dream catchers while hanging at your girls trip stay or booking a pottery class as some additional creative activities everyone could do together.
