No shoes required as you unwind and begin your pampered gal pals trip on the sandy beaches of beautiful Lake Eufaula. This sun and fun weekend getaway with the girls will have you rested, relaxed and rejuvenated after a decidedly feminine twist on the traditional lake escape.
Afternoon - Arrive in Eufaula and check into Lake Eufaula Bed and Breakfast, your getaway headquarters with direct beach access. Get here early enough to settle in, take a walk on the beach and relax your mind and body.
Evening - Head south to Pete's Place in Krebs, home of famous Italian food and Choc Beer. Pete's Place has been an institution in this town which is also known as Little Italy since 1925 when Pete started serving up his authentic Italian cuisine and brewing beer from a recipe given to him by the local Choctaw Indians. He kept brewing and serving his beer to the restaurant's patrons through the days of prohibition, which earned him quite an arrest record. But the patrons kept coming back for more and Pete couldn't disappoint. Tonight enjoy an evening of great food and drink in the individual dining rooms that make Pete's Place extra special. Then spin the wheels and try your luck at Creek Nation Casino or check out one of Eufaula's lakeside nightclubs for live music and dancing until the wee hours.
Morning - You may be tempted to sleep in late, but you won't want to miss the scrumptious home cooked breakfast prepared by your innkeepers. After breakfast, hit the great boutique shops located in downtown Eufaula. Specialty stores feature high-end home decor, cool jewelry and chic clothing - one even has a large plus-size collection. Rest and refuel at Steel Daffodils where you'll find coffee and treats to keep your strength up. Native American crafts are available at many of the stores and make popular gifts.
Afternoon - Once you've shopped 'til you dropped, head over for a fun game of miniature golf with your gal pals at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park, Camp & Resort. Make it a competition to see who will pay for dinner.
Evening - Wander the sandy beaches along the cool waters of the lake while you decide where to eat dinner. Waterfront fine dining with live music is available, or opt for one of the cozy restaurants in town. After dinner your crew can decide whether you're in the mood for more casino gaming or ready for some on the lake libations.
Morning - Sleep in late and wake feeling restored. Take one last stroll on the sandy beach outside the bed and breakfast and then head home with your friendships refreshed and your batteries recharged.
