Whether you’re stressed out from work or overwhelmed by raising children, each of us needs a fun girl’s night out with their friends from time to time. Sure, staying at home to curl up on the couch and watch a romantic comedy with your husband or boyfriends is pretty appealing from time to time, but there is no substitute for a night on the town with your best girlfriends to let off some steam and recharge your batteries. However, with so many things available for activities on an occasion such as this, narrowing down exactly what you want to do can be a bit tough. Here are some fun ideas to help you plan a fun girl’s night out that everyone in your group is certain to enjoy.

Dinner and a Movie

One of the simplest and most classic ideas for a girl’s night out is to head out to your favorite restaurant for some dinner before catching a movie. While it isn’t the most original plan, it is called a classic for a reason because it is sure to be a ton of fun and will let you turn your brain off for a while. As an extra bonus, this can be a great excuse to see a sappy love story movie that your boyfriend or husband would probably laugh at while you are trying to enjoy it.

Live Concert

There are few things more fun than heading out to a concert with your best girlfriends. Music is a great way to relive your more youthful days and have a really fun time. The only pitfall with going to a live concert is that it can sometime be hard to agree on what band or performer that all of the girls in your group want to see. However, as long as you have similar taste in music, there should be an act coming through town at some point soon that you can all enjoy together.

Dancing

If you’re married or have been in a relationship for a significant period of time, then you probably have already realized that your partner isn’t that interested in going to a nightclub for dancing. Most men who go dancing at nightclubs are only there to pick up women, so their interest in that type of scene quickly diminishes as soon as they’re in a long-term relationship. However, that doesn’t mean that you and the girls can’t go out to the night club to buy bottle service with sparklers and enjoy some time on the dancefloor. Just be prepared for a swarm of younger guys to swoop in and make passes at you all night long; even if you’re wearing your wedding ring proudly.

Spa Day

Okay, I know this isn’t usually a “nighttime” activity, but it is still so much fun that it needed to be put on the list. There is nothing more relaxing than heading to your favorite spa with the girls to be massaged and pampered for hours on end. The best part of a great spa day is that the benefits don’t end when you head back home; your relaxation will continue in the days to come.

The most important thing to keep in mind when planning a fun girl’s night out is that everyone in the group needs to be onboard with the plan. As long as you all sit down and talk about your likes, dislikes, and overall interests, then planning a fun girl’s night out should be a pretty simple process.
