Destination Ideas for a Bachelorette Party Weekend Away
Lake Michigan shoreline: where the number of lighthouses barely out-numbers the number of wineries. Why don’t we do a little day drinking!? But only June through August, when the sun is high, and the water is not as cold. Lake Michigan is like the Florida of the Midwest. Follow the wine trail all the way up the coast!
Lake Tahoe: Are you a die-hard Buckeye who refuses to go to that state up North? If so, Lake Tahoe may be the place for you! If you take a trip to this beautiful lake where California and Nevada meet, you’ll learn that Nevada has more to offer than just Las Vegas. Whether you like to ski, hike, or hit the spa – Lake Tahoe is the place for you!
Gulf Shores, Alabama – You can’t go wrong with Sweet Home Alabama! The white-sand beaches are a perfect compliment to skies that really are so blue. Hit the beach and relax, or get your workout on with some hiking, paddle boarding, or kayaking.
Charleston, SC – Oh, the Carolinas, the setting of every great love story written by Nicolas Sparks. Celebrate being in love by taking in the scenery at Middleton Place. Eat your way through Charleston’s southern cuisine by brunching at the High Cotton, and dine Slightly North of Broad Street. Nothing will get the bride and her maids in the mood for the wedding day like the sight of Charleston’s Magnolias in bloom.

New Orleans, LA – New Orleans, LA is still the perfect destination for your bachelorette party, even if you don’t go during the infamous Mardi Gras celebration. Ditch the beads and masks and grab some flash tattoos and sashes from the shop and take a stroll down Bourbon Street. Don’t forget to grab some of the coveted beignets from Café Du Monde for the morning after you experience the exciting nightlife of the French Quarter!
Nashville, TN – Pack your cowboy boots! Those boots will be walking all up and down Broadway. Sing your heart out to the best live music at bars like Tootsies and Honky Tonk Central. After all, you never know who’ll be listening in this Music City. Who knows, you may even rub elbows with Carrie or Blake! After a late night on the town, relax with a spa day at the Gaylord Opry Land Hotel or kick back on the Belle Meade Plantation.
Gatlinburg, TN – Okie dokey, smoky. The Smoky Mountains make a great get away for your gals who glamp. Hit the trails to Chimney Tops, or go zip lining through the forest. For the bridesmaids who aren’t so fond of the outdoors, there is plenty of shopping and craft beers to partake in! When you’ve had enough adventure for one day, soak those tired feet in the hot tub back at your cabin. You won’t need a little Tennessee moonshine to put you to sleep!
Acadia National Park, Maine – As one of the most visited parks in all of North America, you and your girls will be sure to have a blast! Be sure to visit the small town of Bar Harbor that is surrounded by Acadia. With all of the great food and views, an amazing Insta pic is basically a guarantee! Remember: If you don’t eat clam chowder, blueberry pie, and a lobster roll, did you really go to Maine?
