Make the most of your bachelorette party with a long weekend getaway with your favorite girls. There’s a destination for every type of bride, whether you’re planning on dancing the night away or just want to sip drinks in the sand.
For an Adventure: La Fortuna, Costa Rica
Hike around Arenal Volcano, lounge in natural hot springs and visit La Fortuna Waterfall before indulging in local cuisine. La Fortuna lets you balance adventure with luxury. Stay at a high-end resort, sip locally grown coffee and relax at one of many nearby spas.
Cozy cabins and upscale lodges in national parks also make great bachelorette trip destinations for adventure a little closer to home.
For Southern Charm: Charleston, South Carolina
Cute bed and breakfasts, upscale shopping and an almost unlimited number of brunch options are just the start of a weekend in Charleston. A mix of beautiful architecture, mild weather and low key nightlife are waiting for you and your girlfriends.
For Wine Sipping: Finger Lakes, New York
You don’t have to go far to enjoy amazing wine. You could spend just a day tasting wine from wineries surrounding Keuka, Seneca and Cayuga Lakes before heading home. Or, you can rent a gorgeous lakeside home and combine a wine tour with a day of sunbathing, kayaking, walking the streets of Penn Yan, Watkins Glen or Ithaca and finishing off the bottles of wine you swore would make it home.
For a Weekend on the Beach: Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
There’s a reason so many celebrities spend time in Los Cabos. Think beautiful blue water, spring break vibes, dinner on the beach, boozy brunches and chartered boats. Because Cabo is such a popular bachelor and bachelorette party destination, you may just make new friends to party the night away with!
For a European Feel: Montreal, Quebec
For a bachelorette weekend filled with European charm but located a little closer to home, try Montreal. Luxury hotels, upscale spas, numerous art galleries, cute brunch and French dining are all within walking distance. Artisan cocktails, fine wine and craft beer are all plentiful in this party city.
Quebec City, 3 hours northeast of Montreal, also offers cobblestone streets and upscale boutiques for bachelorettes and their parties.
For a Night at the Casino: Atlantic City, New Jersey
Instead of flying to Vegas, take a trip to Atlantic City with your girls. Full service resorts offer gambling, pools (complete with pool parties) and restaurants. Hit the dance floor, see a show, make a stop at the spa or spend a day on the ocean.
If you’re looking to combine the casino with a little class, consider staying in Cape May (just an hour’s drive down the Jersey Shore) and spending a night out in Atlantic City.
For Excellent Craft Beer: Denver, Colorado
Head west and indulge in luxury accommodations, cute boutiques, antique shops, art and culture and relaxing spas. Craft beer abounds in Denver, but you’ll also find fancy cocktails and plenty of nightlife.
