Start the weekend off right with a trip to one of our DeBrand Fine Chocolates locations. This world-renowned chocolatier offers small bites, decadent desserts, and several stores throughout the community. Be sure to take the tour to see behind-the-scenes, and enjoy the samples!
Northeast Indiana is home to many new wineries that your girlfriends will love. Plan your trip using the NE Wine Tour guide.
The two closest wineries to Fort Wayne include Country Heritage Winery to the north, and Two E’s Winery to the west. Both offer outstanding wines, in peaceful, rural settings.
Country Heritage urges you to enjoy up to five free tastings, and then savor your selection (or one of their amazing wine slushies!) under their gazebo, or as you sit and rock awhile on their front porch.
Two EE’s winery sits at the bottom of their vineyard, where their tasting room combines simple elegance with a full view of the production room. Guests can overlook the vineyard as they peruse their wine selections, and freely enjoy the 40-acre grounds.
Of course, no Girlfriend Getaway would be complete without a healthy dose of retail therapy. Fort Wayne offers a wide variety of shopping experiences to delight young and young-at-heart, bargain-hunters and discriminating style-mavens.
Jefferson Pointe is more than just a shopping destination, it's a shopping experience. Jefferson Pointe is a outdoor lifestyle shopping center with upscale stores such as Williams Sonoma, Ann Taylor, Vera Bradley and Talbots. Come shop till you drop in a beautiful and relaxing setting.
Glenbrook Square is the largest shopping mall in the state of Indiana. Come shop till you drop at Macy's, Carsons, Banana Republic, Build-A-Bear, and so much more.

Add to this a visit to a fabulous Fort Wayne spa, unique boutique or perhaps a live performance. Then, top your evening off with a great dinner with the girls, and a comfortable overnight stay in one of our great (and affordable!) hotels.
