A friend and I have decided to take a Sat/Sun vacation without kids or hubbies to Concord, NC in lieu of buying each other birthday gifts this year. This will hopefully take place a weekend in November, but may end up in December (not on a holiday weekend). We would like to stay someplace nice, but not super pricey, that is near the Concord Mills Mall. We also would like a suggestion for someplace to have dinner one night. The goal of the trip is to get in some pre-holiday shopping without the kids in tow and get some girl-time and adult conversation over dinner. If anyone knows of any hotel specials including spa treatments or massages that aren't $500 for one night that would also be appreciated! We would be willing to stay closer to Charlotte if the price is right! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!!
