Itinerary for a Girlfriends Getaway

Sometimes you need to gather your besties and take off for a few days of shopping, dining and pampering. Vacation starts bright and early at the number one farmers' market in the nation -- the Overland Park Farmers' Market in Downtown OP. You'll find everything from a hot cup of coffee to lavender soaps made from a local lavender farm. Head a little bit south and have brunch at Louie’s Wine Dive, complete with a mouthwatering menu and “almost never-ending” carafes of mimosas. 

Keep the indulgence going at Milagro Midwestern Spa and Collective, a full-service spa that offers massage and skin treatments. Did we mention that for an additional $5, you can add a slice of pie from downtown Overland Park’s The Upper Crust pie shop? When your appetite starts to ramp up, sit down and share a charcuterie board at Sage Bites where they make their own cheese and butter in-house. 

Next stop— Prairiefire’s Primp and Blow, a blow dry bar, to get ready for a night on the town. Then, shop ‘til you drop at fashion-forward boutiques like FitWear BoutiqueKindred, and Threshing Bee
