Best Bachelorette Party Locations, by Month
With beautiful beaches, all-inclusive resorts, world-class dayclubs and a fantastic nightlife, Mexico’s party capital Cabo San Lucas is the perfect setting for any bachelorette party weekend. Cabo is easy, warm, affordable, and a ton of fun. If your girls are flying in from the West Coast, a flight down to Cabo is only a couple hours (and usually direct), and all-inclusive resorts give reasonable group options to party without breaking the bank.
Spend your days sipping margaritas on the beach (and definitely hit up Mango Deck), and your nights dancing at El Squid Roe.

We love Pueblo Bonito for a luxury all-inclusive hotel with the best location in Cabo. It’s beautiful setting right on Medano Beach and beautiful white architecture that makes you wonder if you’re in Mexico or Greece, and makes for the perfect home base for a bachelorette party weekend. If you’re looking for the best bang for your buck, Solmar Resort’s all-inclusive hotel is affordable for a big group of girls, has a great pool, beach, and bar, and is everything you need in a bachelorette party hotel in Cabo San Lucas.
Sunny, sophisticated pool days mixed with wild Miami nights make this chic and spicy destination the ultimate bachelorette party destination for 2020. Miami is jam-packed with countless hotels, rooftop bars, restaurants, picture-perfect pools, great food, world-class beaches and day clubs, and of course plenty of nightclubs prime for dancing the nights away.
Miami is also relatively easy and cheap to get to for your girls, with one of the biggest airports in the US and plenty of flight options for girls coming from anywhere, but especially the East Coast, South, or Midwest.
Where to stay for a Miami bachelorette party weekend:
If budget is no object, head straight to the 1 Hotel South Beach and their world-famous rooftop pool and super-elegant rooms. If you’re looking for a better deal without leaving South Beach, The Mondrian isn’t on the beach, but is a great, young vibe and a perfect hotel for a bachelorette party in Miami.

March: PALM SPRINGS
Chase the warm weather with a desert-themed bachelorette party in Palm Springs. With sunny weather year round, and the best in shopping, dining and bar hopping, California's Coachella Valley is now one of the best bachelorette party destinations in the US. It’s the perfect mix of mellow, poolside days mixed with a great nightlife.
If you’re planning a bachelorette party in Palm Springs, also keep in mind you can go on a day-trip adventure to Joshua Tree National Park (about 45 mins away) if that's something your group is feeling like doing for the weekend.

The Saguaro Palm Springs is trendy, affordable, fun, and always a party. It's pretty much the quintessential bachelorette party home base, and their pool is the picture-perfect spot to roll up in matching one-pieces and sarongs. There’s also the upscale, eclectic and chic Parker Palm Springs, which makes for a perfect bachelorette party base in the desert.
April: LAS VEGAS
It's hard to beat a Vegas bachelorette weekend. And the best part about Springtime in Vegas is the pool parties are open but it’s not TOO hot yet. You can spend your days brunching and sipping mimosas at some of the best restaurants on the strip, go shopping with the girls, head to a pool party at Encore Beach Club or Wet Republic, and stay up all night dancing the year away in the best nightclubs. Oh, and, as girls in Vegas, you won’t have to spend much, if you make friends with a promoter on the strip, entry to clubs and pool parties for groups of girls is almost always free. If your bride-to-be’s style is a little luxe, a little splurge, and a lot of party, this is the bachelorette destination for her.

If you’re looking for somewhere downtown, we love the chic rooftop pool at Hotel Bennett. If you'd rather stay in a house on the beach, and cab into downtown for the nights, we recommend renting a villa in Isle of Palms (like this one, or this one) or Sullivans Island (like this one, or this one). Both IOP and Sullivan’s have some really beautiful vacation homes with private pools just steps from the beach.
July: BANFF, CANADA
Only a four-hour drive from Seattle, this lake town in the middle of the Canadian Rockies is one of the most adventurous bachelorette party destinations. The raw, natural beauty of the rockies is stunning, and perfect for the bride-to-be who loves a mix of nature and adventure, and is more outdoorsy.
In Banff, you can have your pick of jaw-dropping hikes: Grassi Lakes, Emerald Lake, Tunnel Mountain Trail or canoeing in the insta-famous Lake Louise. We also love the Banff Upper Hot Springs and grabbing beers at one of the many Canadian local breweries for some post-hike rest and relaxation. If you’re looking to blow off some steam, we recommend you do some two-stepping at Wild Bill’s, or head to the Dancing Sasquatch.
Where to stay in Banff for a bachelorette party:
If beaches, brunches, and popping bottles at the Surf Lodge sound like your perfect bachelorette party weekend, The Hamptons is the perfect destination. You can spend your days soaking up the sun poolside, partying at one of the beach clubs, or even go wine tasting for the day at one of the nearby vineyards like Wolffer Estate or Channing Daughters!

September: NAPA VALLEY / SONOMA
If you or your bride is a wino and looking for a destination that’s as sophisticated as she is, Napa or Sonoma is a great choice. Rent a villa in wine country, wine taste your days away in a private limo, get spa treatments, and spend your nights cooking dinner and playing bachelorette party games together in California.
Where to stay in Napa Valley for a bachelorette party:
Consider renting a villa with a lot of bedrooms (there aren't many large houses in wine country, but here's one in Sonoma with 6 bedrooms and vineyard views) or a few hotel together rooms at a hotel like Silverado Resort & Spa. or The Archer downtown.
