Best Friends' Guide to a Galentine's Weekend Away

Traveling to new places or returning to favorite destinations is a lovely treat made more enjoyable when done with best friends. Madison, Georgia’s scenic setting, historic downtown and small town charm make this a wonderful place for a Galentine’s weekend away.


After the car ride into town, stretch out with the free, self-guided walking tour of Madison’s stunning Historic District or sign up for a yoga class at a local studio.

Next, savor traditional pub fare at the British-inspired Hart & Crown Tavern while cozying up next to a fire or keep it casual and fun at Wing Nights @Benny Paul’s whose retro, Hollywood vibe is a hidden gem in the heart of downtown Madison.


Horseback riding on trails is one of our favorite fall activities

In the morning, have a best friends’ adventure and reserve a time to go horseback riding at Southern Cross Guest Ranch. After your activity, get pampered with your pal at ZEN Relaxing Wellness Center.

In the afternoon, have fun perusing independently-owned shops with clothing, antiques, décor and more. Afterward, enjoy a fresh coffee or cocktail at The Sinclair  or a flight of beer at Amici before winding down for dinner.

Later, delight in an exquisite dinner at Town 220 or Ricardo’s Kouzzina with delicious food and unique venues.

In the afternoon, head to Rutledge and bring some  discs to the 18-hole disc golf course at Indian Creek Park or hike the trails of Georgia’s second largest state park at Hard Labor Creek State Park.

Find the perfect place to stay during your best friends’ weekend away and have a wonderful time this Galentine’s Day.
