Afternoon - Check in at Lake Murray Floating Cabins where you'll stay in comfy floating hideaways on the water. Choose the east or west cottage on the north peninsula — both are equipped with all the amenities of home, plus a spectacular view of the lake and Tucker Tower.
Rent a wave runner from Lake Murray Watersports and Mini-Golf and zigzag across the frothy peaks of Lake Murray’s surface. Veteran water gals can proclaim their prowess at water skiing, tubing or fishing.
Evening - Don your favorite sundress and prepare for an evening meal at the nearby Fireside Dining in Lake Murray Village. The rustic refuge serves up some of the finest seafood, steaks and hickory-grilled dishes in the area, along with fantastic desserts and a full bar.
After dinner, throw on your flannels, grab a pillow and host a cottage-based slumber party. Necessary elements include juicy gossip, twice-told tales and a relaxing environment. Take your talks outside on the deck before returning indoors for a choice chick flick.
Morning - Take advantage of your floating cottage locale and greet the morning with a rejuvenating plunge into Lake Murray’s brisk waters. It’s a sure-fire way to get your blood flowing for the day ahead. Prefer a java jumpstart? Try the “Ardmore Extreme” blend at Main Street Coffee.
Afternoon - Downtown Ardmore is the place for a morning shopping stroll. The Stag OK offers a selection of contemporary gifts and fashion-forward clothing.
Evening - Tempt your taste buds at Two Frogs Grill, a local favorite known far and wide on the I-35 corridor. The grill serves up a varied menu in a funky atmosphere with frequent live music.
After dinner, bring a little culture to your getaway. The Ardmore Little Theatre headlines community productions, and the Charles B Goddard Center for the Performing Arts hosts frequent dance and music performances.
Morning - Remember that fully-equipped kitchen? Put it to good use and cap off your weekend with a going-away brunch. The beautiful scenery, morning air and a meal with your mates create an easygoing environment to reflect on your trip, and perhaps plan the next girls-only adventure.
