Women-only vacations tend to be unique, thoughtful, and purposeful. Most women would have to compromise at best if they tried to drag a husband or son or any other man on a week's vacation filled with yoga, healthy food, afternoon tea, and moments for meditation.
While this kind of travel may sound contrived at first, it really can offer an experience you may never have otherwise. Bring your mother, sister, friend, or go by yourself and enjoy a small group setting, without the all-too-real safety risks of being a woman traveling alone. Women of all ages and interests travel together - and for all reasons. Recent college grads looking for a quick trip before entering the real world (file this one away - a women-only package tour also makes a great graduation gift), photography buffs, women who are trying to get in shape, women who want to learn to whitewater raft, women who are trying to lose weight, or renew their faith.
