Offering a dizzying number of places to drink, dance, and party, Las Vegas is a tried-and-true bachelorette party destination for good reason. If you want to be in the heart of the action, there’s no better place to stay than The Strip, with its glittering casino resorts and endless entertainment options. Downtown Vegas is a great alternative for those seeking cheaper Las Vegas hotels, plus it gives you a chance to discover the charms of old-school Vegas.
Not surprisingly, considering the city’s scorching desert temperatures, the pool party scene in Las Vegas is huge. Many resorts along The Strip offer day passes that allow you to experience the pool party without staying at the hotel.
New York, New York
New York is another classic bachelorette party destination. It’s packed with hip bars and diverse restaurants, not to mention celebrated museums and eclectic shopping. When considering where to stay, remember that it’s all about location when it comes to New York hotels. Pick a neighborhood that suits your group’s vibe, whether you prefer to be amid the fashionable shops of SoHo or the excitement of Times Square.
A spa day is a quintessential bachelorette party activity, and New York offers oodles of wonderful options, from oxygen-infusion facials at Red Door Spa to Great Jones Spa’s water lounge. Mix up the typical itinerary with a visit to the Museum of Sex, an odd and interesting collection of exhibits dedicated to the evolution of human sexuality.

Nashville is well on its way to rivaling Las Vegas as the ultimate destination for bachelorette parties, with hotels in Nashville often more affordably priced compared to other popular choices like Las Vegas or New York. Broadway, otherwise known as Honky Tonk Row, is a favorite bar-hopping spot for bachelorette groups. This buzzing strip is lined with over 20 honky-tonks, and few have cover charges.
Listen to some of the city’s top up-and-coming music talent at the iconic Bluebird Café, where artists ranging from Garth Brooks to Taylor Swift once got their start. Book a tour of the city aboard NashTrash’s giant pink bus for a racy and hilarious perspective into Nashville’s history.
With its cobblestone streets, antebellum mansions, and magnolia trees, Savannah is a perfect destination for groups seeking an alternative to the standard bachelorette party scene. You can easily explore Savannah on foot, and this destination is one of only a handful of U.S. cities with an open-container law. Many bars offer to-go cups, so you can grab a few drinks and sip them while enjoying a scenic stroll.
For a more luxurious drinking experience, head to Rocks on the Roof for cocktails. It’s located on the roof of the Bohemian Hotel, one of the swankiest hotels in Savannah. Or class it up with tea and posh snacks in the Gryphon Tea Room, which is set in an elegant building dating back to 1926.
Whether you’re looking for a wild weekend or to bid a sophisticated farewell to singlehood, these destinations and fabulous hotels have got you covered.
