If you're tired of always doing dinner and drinks for your monthly girls' night out, you'll want to check out this Forever 39 podcast for some unique ideas that will have your girlfriends signing your praises.

As the popularity of girls' night out has risen in New Jersey, so has the number of activities geared toward women only. New Jersey Family Magazine did the legwork for us so we don't have to, and compiled a list of some of the girls' night out happenings around the state.

From hatchet throwing, to makeup lessons, to wine-tastings — these ideas are sure to give you a memorable night with your squad, while avoiding being boxed into the same old scene.

Check out New Jersey Family Magazine's 2017 girls' night out suggestions.
