The House From Steel Magnolias Is the Precious B&B of Your Girls' Getaway Dreams

Is there a more perfect mother-daughter or girlfriends Southern trip idea than the Steel Magnolia's House?

Steel Magnolias may have come out in 1989, but its a timeless powerhouse that endures to this day. First of all, we dare you not to look at pink wedding decor and make a crack about "blush and bashful." Plus, could there be a more epic ensemble — apart from, say, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills — than Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Shirley MacLaine, Olympia Dukakis, and Dolly Parton? It was the sweetest Southern movie and people still love to grab some popcorn and reminisce, watching this classic over and over. 

Well, if you still can't get enough of Steel Magnolias lo these decades later, you're in luck — because the home from the movie is in fact the cutest B&B available for booking. To get there, you'll need to book a ticket to Natchitoches, Louisiana, where the movie was filmed. 

The house is still just like the movie and you can even stay in Shelby's pink room. Or maybe you're more of a Clairee girl —they've got her represented, too. In the house, you'll also find all kinds of movie memorabilia, such as costume sketches. 

Beyond even being just the location of one of the greatest movies of all time, this house has a seriously cool history: It was a hospital during the civil war and rumored to have been part of the Underground Railroad.

You can take tours here around town to Truvy's beauty shop, and the St. Augustine Catholic Church (where Shelby got married in the movie). 

What a dream idea for a girls getaway, or mother-daughter bonding adventure, right?

While you ponder the possibilities, let this classic scene inspire your next trip idea.
