Unique Activities and Themes for a Bachelorette Party


By Kimberly Krol of Trazee Travel

Bridesmaids, listen up! It’s time to get creative: Themes and unique activities aren’t just for bridal showers anymore. Try incorporating them into your next destination bachelorette party as a way to sightsee with a twist.

Wine (or Beer) Tasting

Nearly every major destination will have local wineries or craft breweries. Spend an afternoon exploring and sipping.

Food Crawls

What’s the city you are visiting known for? Maybe it’s cupcakes, pizza, cheeses, bagels, or other gourmet delights. Head out on a mission to taste them all!

Dancing/Exercise Class

What’s the latest fitness craze in the selected destination? Get your sweat on at a local dance or exercise class and burn some calories as a group before a night of indulgent partying.

Spa Day

What group of girlfriends doesn’t like to be pampered? Take it a step further and get to know the city by finding a spa incorporating indigenous ingredients into treatments.

Fortune Telling

It’s pretty clear what is in the bride’s immediate future, but what about the bridesmaids? Or a year or two into wedded bliss? Visit a local fortune teller for a playful glimpse at what’s next.


Laughter is the best medicine; help the bride shed the stress of wedding planning by catching a performance of a popular local comedian in the city you are visiting.


Or maybe your Mrs.-to-be is more musical. If so, find a super fun karaoke bar in the city for a night out. Maybe the bridesmaids can practice a rousing rendition of the couple’s wedding song?

Photo Shoot

Supermodel bride-to-be? Photo sessions are a fun way to get the group glammed up, and they can focus of any number of themes, plus they leave the bachelorette with lasting memories of her special weekend.

Scavenger Hunt

You know the bride well, so get crafty and create clues that incorporate both the destination of the bachelorette party and your friend. Teams will race to solve the clues and end up at a fabulous dinner, bar or other fun venue.

Slumber Party

End a busy day of sightseeing and fun with an old-fashioned slumber party — order room service, pop in a romantic comedy, pull out the board games, make some flirty cocktails and paint each other’s nails.
