Need a reprieve from the gridiron gabfest in the man-cave you used to call home? Enter the Wyndham Orlando Resort, where during the 2012-2013 football season, a new “Football Widows” package invites women to escape with a friend starting at $119 a night! Liberate yourself from the shackles of the pigskin brigade with football-free amenities in beautiful digs just minutes from the heart of O-Town.

Check in at 4:00 p.m. and enjoy a quick dip in the sparkling resort pool or sneak in a workout in either the on-site health club, manicured jogging path or both. Follow it up with a soak in the whirlpool, then back to your spacious guest room to get ready for a girls’ night out. Package includes two massive martinis per day, so stay on-site for a relaxing happy hour, perhaps pool- or lagoon-side, as you decide whether to dine on or off the premises. A nightly chocolate turndown service will send you to bed with sweet thoughts.

Be sure to take advantage of two round-trip I-Drive Trolley Shuttle passes to the Orlando Premium Outlets and indulge in a little retail therapy. From Ann Taylor to True Religion, J.Crew to Juicy Couture, there are more than 180 outlet stores to choose from – or come early with a hardcore agenda and hit them all before heading back for a second day of martinis at the Gatorville Poolside Bar & Restaurant where you can fill out the “Honey, I’m here!” postcard included in the package.
Will he miss you? Probably, but the flat-screen will be friendly company. Besides, you’ve undoubtedly earned this time-out.
