This guide reveals the best bachelorette party destinations in the US for all types of brides-to-be.
It features the best bachelorette party cities for gal gangs who want to paint the town red, beach baches for the bride and her mates, pretty towns with rural appeal, vineyards, mountains, and the spots you’ll want to get your group pics at.
We’ve suggested ideas for each location which include activities, attractions, dining options, and recommendations to deliver stress-free bachelorette getaways.
The guide starts with the cities that make up the best bachelorette locations on the west coast, then we move to the east coast, and finally the beaches in the US!
Best Cities for Bachelorette Parties
First, let’s take a look at the best west coast bachelorette destinations featuring Las Vegas, Napa Valley, and Palm Springs.
We also include party town in the mountains, Aspen, CO, in this section.
Las Vegas, Nevada for Pool Parties, Karaoke & Clubbing
Las Vegas reigns supreme for bachelorette hot spots.
If partying, the best entertainment, dining on any food you and your girlfriends crave, pool parties, endless activities, and memories to last a lifetime are your goals, Vegas will not disappoint.
Checking out the Vegas strip is a day trip in and of itself, and you can walk around with your drink.
Things to do on a Las Vegas Bachelorette Trip
Get the photo of the I Do crew at the Las Vegas sign.
It’s kinda mandatory to get a party bus, cheesy but it blasts music and lets you take your own drink onboard so…
Plus, it stops at the Vegas sign and there is a pole if you like to swing.
Crash a bachelor party’s table, then hit the dance floor at OMNIA, the huge three-level club in Caesars Palace, or JEWEL at Aria.
If your bride is this way inclined, you can catch a Chippendales Show at Caesar’s Rio.
If she’s more on the discreet vibe, one of the more unique bachelorette trip ideas is a private session at Pepper, the lux sexual wellness store.
Who doesn’t love karaoke?
RedTail at Resorts World Las Vegas has private suites for hire.
Finally, pack your swimsuit, ain’t no party like a Vegas pool party which you’ll be delighted to read because Vega is desert hot.
There are over twenty pool parties in Vegas to choose from which will suit different budgets and music tastes, see the parties at TAO and Encore for ideas.
Remember to check the dress code for each venue before booking.
Many of the big hotels in Vegas offer balloon and room decoration packages so you don’t have to fly with the ‘one pen13 for life’ blow up in your carry-on.
If you have more than three days, you might want to consider a day trip to Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend which collects from Vegas and drops you back 14 hours later.
It’s a long day so best avoid it with a hangover but it does mean you get to take cool pictures at these US landmarks.
If you plan to do some of the more touristy stuff while in Sin City, here’s our 3-day Vegas itinerary.
Palm Springs, California for Art & Nature
Known for its poolside lounging and Coachella, Palm Springs is the perfect destination for a bride to relax with her girlfriends.
Spending the day poolside, indulging in various spa treatments, shopping, or drinking are only some of the fun Palm Springs can add to your bachelorette party.
There are also wine tours available, painting classes, and an aerial tramway to explore.
Things to do on a Palm Springs Bachelorette Trip
Cycle around town and take in the street art installations which include a 6-ft (7.9-m) Marilyn Monroe to colorful popsicles.
Palm Springs is also known for its modernist architecture and mid-town houses.
For a sneak peek at celebrity homes, hop on the Palm Springs: Legends and Icons Tour.
There are heaps of food options at Azucar (contemporary cuisine), 1501 (rustic-chic gastropub), Wilma Frieda (comfort food), and Birba (changing menu, patio).
For nature, visit Moorten Botanical Gardens, Indian Canyons, once home to the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, and do the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, the largest rotating aerial tramway in the world.
Palm Springs is the perfect location for a chilled-out bachelorette party in California.
If you have time, there are also two popular day trips from Palm Springs.
Pioneertown, which was created in the 1940s as a “Living Breathing Movie Set” is just a 40-minutes drive and has free parking.
There is also a tour of Joshua Tree National Park.
It’s a long day trip but worth it to see this US bucket list destination and someone else does the driving!
Napa Valley, California for a Pretty Vineyards
Napa Valley is one of the more luxurious and classy bachelorette locations.
While the nightlife isn’t as jumping as some of the other spots in this guide, there is no shortage of activities in Napa Valley.
From wine tasting to cooking classes, the foodie bride-to-be might just love this idea.
You can enjoy being chauffeured around vineyards and to the finest dining you can imagine or a farm-to-table dining experience if that is more your group’s style.
Things to do on a Napa Valley Bachelorette Trip
Hire a car service to take you around the vineyards you want to visit, this way no one in the group is a designated driver!
It’s not just about the destination as they say, the views between vineyards are spectacular and some of the cars will let you drink between stops so you can continue the party.
Napa Valley vineyards are beautiful and vary in architecture and aesthetic.
Raymond Vineyards in St Helena has a very sexy Red Room kitted out in velour and chandeliers!
Trentadue Winery in the heart of Alexander Valley has outdoor seating with fire pits.
Michel-Schlumberger Wine Estate in the Dry Creek Valley offers a nice selection of food to pair with your wine tasting.
Alternatively, some vineyards do curbside pick up so you can drink take-out wine back at the condo or apartment if that’s more your style.
Aspen, Colorado for Skishots & Spa Days
If you have a group of snow bunnies at your bachelorette party, a trip to Aspen is a must.
Skiing is a must for this trip but you can also look forward to hanging out by a roaring fire and sipping cocoa while lapping up the luxury only Aspen can offer will make for a unique bachelorette party.
Aspen offers a vibrant nightlife, so sipping cocktails and dancing until the wee hours of the morning can still be part of the last fling before the ring celebration.
Things to do on an Aspen Bachelorette Trip
Hit the slopes!
There are four mountains, Aspen Mountain, Highlands, Snowmass, and Buttermilk which are linked by a free bus service.
Aspen is also known for its nightlife so if your gnarly girl is also the wife of the party, this has to be one of the best bachelorette destinations for you.
There are over one hundred bars in Aspen from pints at Zane’s Tavern to live music at Escobar.
Be prepared for shotskis too!
Don’t forget to pick up your cowboy hats at Kemo Sabe!
After two days of skiing and partying you might want to book in for a spa day with treatments at Hotel Jerome’s wellness spa.

Charleston has heaps of history so if you want to dig a little deeper under the surface of this complicated city check out the Old Slave Mart Museum and consider a tour of Middleton Plantation.
Folly Beach on Folly Island is located less than 12 miles from Charleston, making it the perfect day trip or added bonus nights to the bach weekend!
Sip margs at the lively Taco Boy, fishbowls at Snapper Jacks, or head to Sand Dollar Social Club if a dive bar with a jukebox is more your bach’s style.
Savannah, Georgia – Where’s My Peaches At?
