If you resolve to spend more time with the girls in 2013, these are the best places to go wine tasting, learn to surf, catch the next great band, or chill at the resort pool.

Kennebunkport, ME

10 of 13

Pack the Lily Pulitzer dresses and Tory Burch flats for a preppy coastal New England weekend. Tag along with Rugosa Lobster Tours for a fun excursion on a traditional Maine lobster boat, where you’ll see traps pulled up and cruise past Walker’s Point, the summertime estate of former president George H. W. Bush and his wife, Barbara. And come sunset, at Nonantum Resort, you can board the Pineapple Ketch schooner for a tour along the Kennebunkport River.

Where to Stay: The renovated Tides Beach Club has an appropriately preppy-glam look, with rooms in aqua and coral, and a petite bar serving oysters and bubbly. Bigger groups will appreciate a waterfront rental like the “summer cottage” 82 Ocean, which sleeps 8–10 people and has a gourmet kitchen and four fireplaces.
