Galentine’s Day was originally seen on an episode of Parks and Recreation, wherein female characters on the show celebrated their female friendships the day before Valentine’s Day. The non-official holiday is now celebrated beyond television screens. Whether you’re single or in a relationship, gather your best friends and have a happy Galentine’s Day.
Make reservations at one of your favorite restaurants, or a new spot you want to try. Plan a brunch, lunch, dinner or even a happy hour to celebrate your friendship.
Go to Class
Look for interesting classes in your neighborhood. Get a group together for a candle-making class, yoga, a cooking class, painting workshop or other new activity you can try together.
Plan a Trip
Gather to book a girls’ trip at a later time. Come up with some destinations you’d all like to visit, and search for the best flights for a weekend getaway.
Have your friends over for a game night at your home. Ask everyone to bring their favorite snack and you can supply the beverages, alcoholic or not.
Go to the Spa
Enjoy an afternoon of relaxation at the spa. Find a place with a variety of offerings for your friends’ needs, including salon treatments and pre-natal options.
Show Love From Afar
If you aren’t geographically close enough to see your friends on Galentine’s Day, plan a Skype session, send them a card or gift or simply call them.

I arrived in Dallas on a cloudy afternoon and, luckily, traffic was light as I drove my rental car into the city in just less than 30 minutes. The Hotel Joule was built in the 1920s in the Neo-Gothic style and is a city landmark in the heart of the business district.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella (or “Old City”) is often packed with tourists who wander up and down Las Ramblas spending way too many euros on overpriced paella and sangria. But the border neighborhood of El Raval is just a few steps from the bustle, but worlds away from the exorbitant prices.
