Besties, Wineries, and Weekend Getaways

Weekend getaways are perhaps some of the easiest trips to plan for. They allow a few days with plenty of time to explore a new city while also keeping work schedules and family time in mind. Weekend getaways are great mini-vacations that are made better with friends, specifically your best gal pals. Check out some of our fun and exciting ways to explore Temple with your friends on your next weekend away.

Cooking With Class

Do you and the girls enjoy learning to cook delicious recipes and try new things? Signing up for a cooking class at Over The Plate might be one of the most fun things you can do while on your weekend getaway. Learning new cooking techniques and discovering new recipes is especially fun and memorable when you've got a group of your closest friends to share the experience with. At Over the Plate you can expect to find a variety of specialty classes offered each month. Costs vary with each class due to ingredients, amount of courses, and difficulty of the meals that are being prepared. Want an exclusive, private class for your group? Book a private class online and research what meal you would like to learn to make together. There's plenty of delicious recipes and out there to set your sights on.

Unleash Your Inner Artist

Let your creativity flow with a paint session at Painting with a Twist or That Art Place. At Painting With a Twist you can choose from themed designs or make something uniquely yours. One of the best features of the attraction is that you can bring a bottle of wine to sip on as you paint! Share a few glasses of wine with your girls and get ready to paint your next masterpiece! At That Art Place, located a short drive away in Belton, guests can paint pottery, created fused glass displays, or paint wood signs for the house. Walk-ins and reservations are both accepted. Design matching drinkware, plates, figurines, or try your hand at one of the other projects offered at this local business. Whatever creative outlet you choose, the gals will love this opportunity to hang out, have fun, and get creative!

Art Museums & Performing Arts

Take a moment to stop by the local art galleries at the Cultural Activities Center (CAC). These galleries feature artwork and pieces created by local artists. The Cultural Activities Center also holds events for live performances throughout the year so make sure to plan your girls weekend with concerts in mind. 

Discover Local Wines
