Head to a Nearby Amusement Park

Try Out a Fancy Restaurant
If you and your girlfriends love to try out new cuisine, why not splash out and book a table at a fancy restaurant? While there is nothing wrong with a cheap burger and fries, you may be after something a bit swankier and more extravagant. If you are heading for an expensive dinner, this can be the perfect opportunity to get dolled up with your friends and look and feel a million dollars. Make sure that you pick a restaurant that matches yours and your friend’s culinary tastes, otherwise things may not run as smoothly as you’d hoped.
Go to an Outdoor Show
While we’re currently in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, which has resulted in music venues having to close, there are some outdoor venues that have been given the green light (as long as they follow social distancing measures). If you have a car and are looking for something a little unusual, there are drive in concerts and movie screenings that you and your friends can watch from the comfort of your own vehicle. Many people have been ordered to work from home, which is what makes this option so desirable for those who can’t wait to get out the door.
Try to ‘Escape the Room’
Escape the room is a game that has surged in popularity over recent years. If you and your friends love puzzles and can work well as a team, why not head to your local escape room?

You and your friends must put your heads together, with the main aim being to ‘escape’ the room as quickly as possible. There are lots of hidden clues and challenging puzzles you will need to solve throughout the room to escape.
Hit a Bespoke Cocktail Bar
If you and your girlfriends aren’t feeling a heavy meal and would prefer to go for drinks instead, there are lots of bespoke cocktail bars to check out in Maryland. Even if a dive bar is more your thing, if you’re celebrating a special occasion or haven’t seen your friends in months, make your reunion special and head to a swanky cocktail bar. Whether a mojito is what gets your taste buds tingling, or you’re more of a margarita fan, there are lots of tasty cocktails to sip on as you catch up with your girls.
If you’re not interested in donning a pair of heels and dress for your girls’ night out, why not bring out your inner child and go for an old-fashioned game of bowling?

This means that you will have hours of fun while improving your health and fitness.
