You’re getting married! Or your best friend is. Either which way, you still get to plan a dream vacation with your BFFs.
Here are 7 ideas for every type of bachelorette.
For the Jet Setter: Puerto Rico
East Coasters considering an exotic spot without exactly leaving the country should think of Puerto Rico’s stunning beaches and tropical weather. Head straight to a resort or soak up San Juan’s nightlife with bottle service or salsa dance to a live band at Nuyorican Cafe. Hint: let a local lead.
For the Sex-and-the-City Devotee: New York City
The Big Apple is the ideal bachelorette party destination — no matter which area you choose to celebrate in — boutique shopping with a side of cronut in Soho, cocktails at The Standard in the Meatpacking District, or beer with your favorite pizza at hipster-haven Roberta’s in Brooklyn.
For the Party Girl: Las Vegas
The life of the party expects nothing less than a big ole’ Vegas-style bachelorette. Splurge on a poolside cabana at the Hard Rock, see some Cirque and then hit the club — just hopefully you won’t end the weekend on the Hangover Bus.
For the Sun Worshipper: Miami
After a day of oceanfront lazing drinking and dining in South Beach reach Blo a blow-dry bar where you can sip wine and primp for your big night out. For those still feeling enthused by Channing Tatum’s moves in “Magic Mike” Hunk-O-Mania is definitely a Miami bachelorette party mainstay.
For the Foodie: Charleston
Consider renting a beach house in nearby Sullivan’s Island or stay in downtown Charleston for Upper King Street shopping, Lowcountry cooking classes with Bog Waggoner and a smattering of stylish downtown restaurants and bars, like Le Farfalle. The Cocktail Club is a foodie’s dream — the rooftop terrace houses a garden where many of the drinks’ garnishes are picked daily.
For the Oenophile: Napa Valley
Your friendship is like a fine wine, it keeps getting better over time. Get yourself into the scenic Carneros Inn where you can relax by the pool in between your spa appointments. After a weekend of Napa Valley wine tours catch the sunrise from a hot air balloon with Balloons Above the Valley that also offers a champagne brunch upon landing.
For the Francophile: Montreal
Get chauffeured around by Montreal Limousine to take advantage of the nightlife (which offers everything from town cars to party buses). Participate in the Saint-Laurent club scene a la Le Rouge or take in an amusing drag queen performance at Cabaret Mado. Montreal nightlife is the matter of tales: a vibrant, exciting, and ever-evolving scene on the cutting edge of international trends.
