Holiday Travel - Virginia's December Getaways

December girl getaways in Virginia are awaiting you! Throughout the area, there are several holiday events planned, perfect for escaping the season’s stress and reconnect with your girlfriends.

Here’s a taste of what Virginia has in store for the holidays:

Candlelight Tour
Alexandria is filled with historic homes, churches and taverns. Grab your mom or best girlfriend to visit them aglow with holiday cheer during a Historic Candlelight Tour. For one weekend only, take a candlelight special tour of Carlyle House, Gadsby's Tavern Museum, and the Lee-Fendall House. During the tour, enjoy seasonal decorations, entertainment and light refreshments. The event takes place on December 12 – 13, 2009. Advance ticket purchases are highly recommended and can be purchased online via Gadsby’s Tavern.

Kwanzaa Workshop
Curious about Kwanzaa or if you want to learn more, reserve space for you and a girlfriend to attend a fun, interactive program at the Alexandria Black History Museum. The Kwanzaa workshop will review the principles of the holiday, and show ways to make Kwanzaa gifts and crafts. The workshop is a great way to learn about the African American holiday and best of all it’s free! The workshop is held on December 12, 2009 - for more information, visit the museum’s website at

100 Miles of Lights
