Spend the Weekend in BelmontGirlfriend Getaway
Need to get away with the girls for some fun and relaxation? Come to Belmont! Not only is Belmont cozy and quiet, perfect for downtime with your girlfriends, but it has fabulous food, fun shopping and plenty of ways to pamper yourself.
Here’s how you can spend your girlfriend getaway with us:
On Your Way In
Belmont has several options for places to stay. Seeking simple elegance? Then the Hampton Inn by Hilton Charlotte/Belmont@Montcross. Looking for a luxury experience? Then try the Villa at Water’s Edge on Lake Wylie. Want a quick bite once you arrive? Give the Glenway Premium Pub a shot. It’s excellent comfort food and they have a deck that’s perfect for relaxing with sweet tea or a glass of wine. Try their grilled salmon salad, or if you’re feeling indulgent, the Belmont burger with pimento cheese and bacon.
Wake up bright and early for a shopping adventure at Catawba River Antique Mall. Here you’ll find a variety of treasures from multiple vendors under one Belmont roof! Additional antique shopping is also available in historic downtown Belmont at Piccolo Antique Mall.
Afterward, grab a quick caffeine jolt from Caravan Coffee & Dessert Bar then head down Main Street to the William Henry Salon and Spa for a spa treatment or manicure. Then stop into Gigi’s Boutique for a little designer consignment shopping – see what fashion gold you can dig up downtown!
Want a treat before starting the afternoon? The Cotton Candy Factory is sweet on the eyes and the lips. Spin your own cotton candy for extra fun with the friends. And nearby Belmont’s Specialty Foods has additional southern finds for snacking and bringing home to the entire family – as well as City of Belmont memorabilia to remember your weekend.
Set aside time to explore the beautiful, world-renowned Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. The Garden’s 300+ acres is an amazing display and includes fountains and a conservatory dedicated to the display of tropical plants. The Garden Store is also worth a visit: It has a large selection of artwork, crafts and jewelry by local artists.
Still in the mood to shop? The nearby Charlotte Premium Outlets, only 10 miles from downtown Belmont, boasts more than 100 outlet stores, including designer labels and upscale fashion brands. Ready your wallet – and extra suitcase space – for this shopping experience.
If you’re looking for a fun activity, add some “Paint Therapy” to your Belmont agenda. At Creative Creations By You, test your artistic abilities with your favorite bottle of wine and your best girlfriends. Downtown’s AR Workshop also allows you to flex your creativity through a variety of crafts.
Make sure you have dinner and dessert at Old Stone Steakhouse, which is a wonderful place for a girls’ night out. Try the bacon-wrapped scallops appetizer and the twin grilled lobster tails for dinner. Wrap up the meal with chocolate crème brulee and an espresso martini.
Before You Leave
Reserve a few hours for Sunday brunch before you bid adieu to Belmont. At Nellie’s Southern Kitchen, southern brunch classics will delight the palette and leave a lasting impression.
