Make it a Girls’ Weekend at The Shops at Hilltop

Three young happy women with face masks at spa resort.

The Shops At Hilltop in Virginia Beach evoke thoughts of food, fashion and fun for the entire family. But Virginia Beach shoppers have found The Shops At Hilltop to be the perfect destination for another activity: a weekend getaway with the girls!

Check out our example itinerary for a weekend girls’ trip to remember:

Friday night: Get settled in along the oceanfront.

Check in to one of the many luxury hotels and resorts along the Virginia Beach oceanfront, just 2 miles from the shopping center.  Kick back and relax, smelling the salty air, before heading out to The Shops At Hilltop.

Just 5 minutes from the resort strip down Laskin Rd. (31st Street), start with a visit to Bottlecraft or Tapped Gastropub for a tasty brew.  Take your pick from over twenty-five restaurants, ranging from casual fare to fine dining. From Mexican (El Taco Loco), Mediterranean (Azar’s and Baladi) and Japanese cuisines (Blue Fin Japanese Steak House), to lighter fare (Saladworks, TASTE, Your Pie or Fruitive,) there is something to please every palate.

Saturday: Show yourself some love.

This is YOUR weekend, so why not go all-out? From the top of your head to the tips of your toes, pamper yourself at our spas and salons. Enjoy a color or cut at any one of our hair salons (AOC Salon, Blowout Salon, Dimensions Hair Studio, Wink Salon). Indulge in a mani/pedi at one of our nail spas, splurge on a treatment at Waxing the City, and maybe a try a float at the unique Dream Float Spa.

After your morning at the spa, spend the afternoon exploring over 120 stores filled with everything from fashion and footwear to jewelry and accessories.

Maybe it’s time to get that handbag you always wanted from Double Takes Consignment! Perhaps you’ve had your eye on a new outfit or ring from any of our fabulous boutiques and jewelry stores, and now is the perfect time to make your move. You’ll also find plenty of great gifts for the man in your life at Beecroft & Bull and The Quality Shops.

After a long day of shopping, quench your thirst at Tinto Wine & Cheese before heading off to dinner at any of the fine dining establishments found at The Shops at Hilltop. Share a fondue with friends at The Melting Pot, or enjoy the fabulous selection of wines and cuisine at Tinto Wine.  With so many great choices, you’re sure to find something to delight.

Sunday: Wrap up your weekend.

Enjoy mimosas and brunch with all the trimmings, at No Frill Grill or Baker’s Crust. Explore other points of interest as you round out your weekend. Love cooking? Don’t miss a stop at Kitchen Barn or Savor the Olive. Sweet tooth? Enjoy a fresh cup at Roast Rider Coffee & Tea, with a heavenly cupcake from Urban Cupcakes & More.

As fall arrives, enjoy the cooler weather, and make time for a special weekend with friends. The Shops At Hilltop will leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed, and ready to take on your week.
