2. Breezy Point Resort
Breezy Point, MN
The Girlfriend Getaway special package has become so popular at this woodsy lakefront property that it's gone from seasonal to year-round. The big draw is Pelican Lake and Marina, which offers sandy beaches, boating and swimming in summer, ice-skating in winter, 36 holes of golf, and nightly dancing to oldies. Two nights in a deluxe room, four meals in the Marina dining room or Antlers restaurant, a coupon book for shopping discounts, and a $50 Breezy credit -- good for just about anything at the resort, including the pro shop, gift shop, boat rental, or golf -- cost $199 per person midweek, $229 weekends. Ask reservations manager Cheri Feil for suggestions on accommodations, which range from connecting rooms to one- to 10-bedroom vacation homes. 800-432-3777; www.breezypointresort.com.
