Girls' Weekend

Day One

A weekend getaway with the gals should start with a Southern breakfast at Puckett's to energize your soul. Ready to explore? Take a walk over to the Historic Athenaeum Girls School for an interesting history lesson followed by a short walk back to Historic Downtown Columbia that promises the best shopping experience...and you'll be supporting our local retailers! Lunch will hit the spot after such rewarding retail therapy, don't you think?! You're in for a real treat for lunch at Buck & Board. BONUS: You can shop next door at The Linen Duck while your lunch is being prepared.

Ready to relax? Look for the striped awning at Elia Spa located on the Town Square in historic downtown Columbia...Oh so good. Now that you're refreshed, we suggest starting the evening with Taps Off Main  where you can indulge in 25 craft brews on tap or experience our own Asgard Brewing located on the Duck River. When you're ready to wrap up the day, head over to a little hot spot called Cities! They have premium live music in the evenings and a good meal waiting for you.

Day Two

Let's start the day with breakfast at The Dotted Lime, a tasty little spot where chalk art floors are encouraged! Once you're fueled and ready to go, head over to Columbia State Pryor Art Gallery to see the latest art exhibit in this fabulous little college campus gallery. While you're in an arts-inspired state of mind, you'll want to visit the Columbia Arts District, a newly emerging district with a handful of businesses you've got to experience like the Columbia Arts Building that houses Bad Idea Brewing, Glover's Secondhand, CAB Cafe, Bloomstall, Muletown Collective, and working artists like Ryan Rado and Sarah Gilliam. There's even more to do in the district so go check it out. 

Time for lunch? We suggest a couple of options and it's going to be tough to choose, we're sure of that. Vanh Dy's or The Parlour. Both are FAB in their own right, each offering their own unique atmosphere and menu.

You're in for an immersive experience at the Columbia Culinary Arts Center. (Bet you noticed it when you were exploring the Arts District!) Check out the variety of culinary classes!

Take in the scenic countryside as you make your way to a marvelous vineyard and winery tucked away just west of Columbia. Head to Amber Falls Winery for an intimate tasting of some of the best wines around. Hey, there may even be live music going on so purchase your favorite wine and sit outside where you can soak up the flavor, the scenery and the fresh country air.

Southern Tre Steakhouse is our recommendation for a delicious dinner as a way to celebrate the close to your Girls' Getaway. Make plans to come back and see us again for all the wonderful shops, restaurants and attractions you didn't get to experience this time around in Columbia, TN!
