If I asked you to think of a girls' weekend getaway destination on the East Coast that offers historic charm, good food, and is near the beach, what would you suggest? Charleston? Savannah maybe? Would Wilmington, North Carolina have crossed your mind? Well, I was invited to explore the Wilmington Coast last month after the Travel Media Showcase Conference in Cabarrus County and I think it is the perfect place for a girlfriend getaway in the South. If you are looking for weekend getaways in NC, let me give you the scoop on this little gem.

I'm the first to admit that I have a wee bit of a lead foot. The older I get, the more cautious of a driver I've become, but there was a time when I dreamed of doing a race car driving experience. Of course, I also dreamed of owning a Corvette but that dream isn't going to happen (although I did have a lot of fun driving one at the Chevy factory.) The race car dream came pretty close to coming true last month at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

If ever a wine destination was aptly named, it is Grapevine, Texas. This charming little town, just minutes from the sprawling Dallas-Fort Worth airport, is an unexpected throwback to a time of main streets and steam trains. Although these days, that main street is lined with cute shops, restaurants, and wineries, and the train is the Jazz Wine Train on the historic Grapevine Railroad. This combination of wine, food and shopping makes a great destination for a girlfriend getaway. I recently visited with a few gal pals and fellow writers for the Travel Media Showcase conference and had a chance to sip my way through Grapevine and have some recommendations for wine tasting in Grapevine.
