National TV Show Travel Correspondent Hosts “Leave Your Baggage at Home” Florida Girlfriend Getaway Weekend

What is it like to travel with a TV Travel Correspondent?  As The Getaway Girl®, Casey Wohl, launches “The Getaway Girl Foundation,” a non-profit dedicated to empowering women and girls through travel, she plans to kick off the Foundation with the inaugural “Leave Your Baggage at Home®” Getaway to Seaside, FL September 27-30, 2012 with limited space for a few lucky ladies to join.

Why Seaside?  This is where the idea for Foundation started when The Getaway Girl® took Sondra and two of her girlfriends on a getaway.  Sondra’s only son died of cancer and, then two weeks after the funeral, her husband left her.  With her birthday approaching, Sondra needed a new lease on life and that’s when the value of life-changing travel was discovered during a trip to Seaside, FL with Sondra, two of her friends and The Getaway Girl® Casey Wohl.  This idyllic community is situated in Northwest Florida on the Gulf of Mexico along scenic highway 30A and amidst the white sand beaches of South Walton County. It is charming and romantic, beautiful and graceful, diverse and eclectic, authentic and unpretentious, alive and vibrant. You may even recognize it as the set for the 1998 Jim Carrey movie “The Truman Show.”  The dream for Seaside was the dream for life itself. Simplicity, grace, elegance, and what is truly real and significant in life.  A simple connection to family and friends and the beauty that abounds in this special corner of the world.

How To Register?  Registration for this weekend includes private tours, culinary demonstration by Celebrity Chef Tim Creehan, fashion lunch, pilates/yoga session, YOLO demonstration, reception, dinners and a cocktail hour (one at the famous Bud and Alley’s Restaurant), as well as participation in the sessions.  Early, discounted registration for $275 can be done online at  Accommodations and travel to Seaside must be booked separately.  For accommodations, please contact The Getaway Girl Foundation’s Seaside Lodging Partner, the Cottage Rental Agency, directly (use Group ID 703 for a 30% discount and free one-day bicycle rental) at (866) 976-7990 or
