Looking for an excuse to get away with the girls? The Women’s Only Weekend (WOW) in South Haven, Michigan, held November 8-10, is like one big bachelorette party, without the stress of the wedding that follows.
Martinis, wine tastings, live music, cooking demonstrations, shows and boutique shopping are all part of WOW. Many downtown South Haven businesses join the fun with events like the “PJ Party” at Crescent Moon Sportswear, where ladies in their coziest sleepwear sip hot toddies and get deals on outdoor clothes and shoes.
South Haven is a quaint harbor town on Lake Michigan with a population of 4,400, located just two hours outside of Chicago. Adding to its charm are bed and breakfasts, antique shops, lakefront dining, vineyards and a red steel lighthouse at the mouth of the Black River.
Accommodations in South Haven include condo rentals, inns, and bed-and-breakfasts. Some lodging partners offer special deals for WOW attendees, like free manicures and martinis for guests of The Monroe Manner Inn.
