As Shaina Twain would say, "Let's Go Girls!".

February is approaching and we all know that that means, Valentine's Day. Growing up, we may have looked forward to this holiday a little bit more. From bags of candy to homemade festive cupcakes and personal Valentine's Day cards from classmates, it truly was a fun time. 

Now that we're grown (somewhat) we are either spending Valentine's Day with our significant other, best friends, family or pet. Regardless of your current situation, being single or taken, it's also a time of year to reflect not only on the love for yourself but for your lady friends.

Going through life a few good girlfriends can truly make it a better experience. What a better way to spend Galentine's Day than with your close friends who could basically be your sisters. 

Create the group chat, plan the outfits and call Uber. This year is the celebration of love within our friendships, cheers to Galentine's Day. 

Here are a few places within the Hudson Valley that you can visit on this special holiday.
