Now that the hustle and bustle of the Holidays are over it's time to take a minute to relax and unwind in preparation for the year ahead. What better way to start the new year than a girlfriend's getaway to the Finger Lakes? The superb wine, relaxing spas, unique shopping, and world class dining is the perfect combination of rest and relaxation for you and your closest friends.

The Finger Lakes are famous for their wineries, a favorite stop for a women only weekend. Enjoy the superb wines at tasting rooms scattered alongside Keuka Lake. For an upbeat fun wine tasting experience visit Bully Hill Vineyards where they serve wine with laughter and story-telling. For a more refined and educational winery experience visit Ravines Wine Cellars. Their knowledgeable staff gives helpful pairing advice while you sip and savor.

After a day exploring the wineries on the lake spend the next day being pampered at AgeLess Spa, located at the Radisson Hotel in Corning. Choose from massages, facials, nail services, or take advantage of one of their all-inclusive spa packages and spend the day relaxing and restoring.

Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes is home charming towns filled with quaint shops where you can find unique items, beautiful art pieces, and locally made products. In between these shops are restaurants that seem unassuming but are serving delicious meals for food lovers of all kinds. Hand + Foot  on Market Street feels like you are stepping into a trendy New York City spot from the décor to the menu. Away from the shopping, but worth the visit is the Pleasant Valley Inn. The more upscale restaurant is quickly becoming a favorite for their farm to table gourmet meals.
