Here's a real ladies South Beach getaway

Women who are interested in a real "ladies getaway," and we're not talking about a trip to the mall, may want to explore South Beach in Miami this spring. The Loews Miami Beach Hotel is promoting its "World's Largest Girlfriend Getaway," which features a weekend of food, fashion and fun. The getaway, which is April 16-18, will include famous chefs, such as Michelle Bernstein and Andrea Curto-Randazzo, who will offer cooking demonstrations and tips, and share recipes.

There also will be a number of activities and events to fill the weekend, and attendees will be able to get poolside manicures, pedicures, blowouts, mini makeup applications and more. The "Girls Only Getaway" package starts at $399 per person, based on double occupancy. The weekend also includes a two-night stay in a deluxe room, daily breakfast, group salsa lesson by Miami Beach's Salsa Mia, beach yoga and Elemis Spa specials.
