Plan a Girls Trip to Wimbledon
Girls Trip 2020: Wimbledon
Planning your next Girl’s Trip? Check out Wimbledon! While many choose Las Vegas as the ultimate girl’s trip destination, Wimbledon is an underrated choice. Classy, not trashy, Wimbledon can bring out your inner Royals while still being able to bring excitement into your trip.
Here are some tips that can make this vacation the best one ever!
1. Dress Smart
Weather in London can be volatile and can quickly turn a beautiful day into a disaster. That being said, Wimbledon is the perfect place to let your inner fashion star loose. As a general rule, wear casual with a heightened twist. Bring out that yellow sundress you’ve been dying to wear or that cute little skirt that’s dying to see the light, and add a cardigan or light sweater just in case the weather turns chilly. Comfortable shoes are the way to go when walking between the different courts. Sunglasses and a hat are recommended to shade your face from the sun. But most importantly, have fun finding your Wimbledon-perfect outfit!
2. Explore The Grounds
Are you a night owl? If so you probably detest going on vacations only to be woken up at the crack of dawn to “do something before you regret spending your vacation sleeping.” Wimbledon gives you the perfect excuse to sleep in, while still being able to attend the games. A late arrival around 10 am is perfect. You can explore the courts and walk around before it becomes crowded. This is the moment to take that perfect instagrammable shot with no random spectators in the background #NoPhotoBombs!
3. Eat Lots of Good Food!
One thing you cannot do is leave Wimbledon without trying the strawberries and cream. This is a staple at Wimbledon. You will not be disappointed. And if you’re looking for something a bit more sturdy you can head to the food court or hit up some of the restaurants around the courts. Tea and sandwiches are a must-try while in Wimbledon. Champagne and Pimms are available through the day, plus other different, fun cocktails you’ll have fun trying.
