When you first think of destination bachelorette parties, your mind might go to far-off-exotic locales or world-famous party cities.  While we are a big fan of any destination bachelorette party, we bet you will be surprised to find out that there are plenty of great East Coast bachelorette party destinations.  A local, or at least relatively local, bachelorette party destination has a number of great benefits for you and your guests.  Lower travel costs are one great benefit, but what people really love is that travel times are shorter.  This makes it possible to pack a full length destination party into a regular weekend.  Great East Coast bachelorette party destinations include: Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami, Florida; Savannah, Georgia; Myrtle Beach and Charleston, South Carolina; Virginia Beach, Virginia; Ocean City, Maryland; Dewey Beach, Delaware; Atlantic City, New Jersey; The Hamptons, New York; and Boston, Massachusetts.   

Orlando, Florida

orlando bachelorette party

Orlando is probably one of the world’s best-known vacation and travel destinations.  It became world famous for its amazing theme parks.  Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld are just three of the amazing parks you can find in Orlando.  What many people do not realize is that the theme parks are only the tip of the iceberg- if you are looking for entertainment, Orlando has it.

Where to Eat

One of the biggest fine dining surprises in the country is that one of America’s best restaurants is located at the Grand Floridian resort.  Victoria & Albert’s is a fine-dining experience.  The price for the seven-course prix fixe meal, with matching wine selections, is not for those with lean pocketbooks, but the food, the wine, and the experience are all worth every penny.

Where to Sleep

Orlando is absolutely full of hotel rooms and resort properties, so that finding high-quality lodging in the town at relatively inexpensive prices is only a challenge during the theme park’s busiest times.  We love Silver Lake Resort if you want to do your partying elsewhere and want your sleeping spot to be great for sleeping and relaxing.  This hidden gem is located near the theme parks and offers 1 to 3 bedroom condominiums.  The three bedrooms can comfortably sleep up six or more people and come with multiple bathrooms and plenty of space to stretch out.

Daytime Activities

If Orlando made your list of potential bachelorette party destinations, then the odds are high that you love theme parks.  The problem is that there are so many it is impossible to squeeze them all into the average bachelorette weekend!  We suggest that you make Walt Disney’s Animal Kingdom one of your must-see parks.  Everyone says the Kilimanjaro Safaris is the ride you cannot miss, but the newly opened Avatar-themed Pandora section may be the most gorgeous and fully immersive theme park experience, anywhere!

Nightlife Activities

Even if you come to Orlando craving the theme park experience, by night time you may be ready for some adults-only entertainment options.  No problem, Orlando has nightclubs galore.  One of our favorites is Eve, which offers a feel that is a little bit of a mix between Old Hollywood and modern-day Vegas.  DJs spin dance music upstairs, but the downstairs lounge usually has a mellower house-music vibe.  Dress up, though; this venue is VIP.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

fort lauderdale bachelorette party

Long considered one of the best spring break party cities in the world, Fort Lauderdale offers a wild ride for bachelorette parties.  Just do not forget to hit the amazing beaches while you are in town; the parties might be awesome, but the beaches are even better!

View Flight Prices to Fort Lauderdale

Where to Eat

You can find restaurants at every price point and in just about any style, but Kaluz is one of our Fort Lauderdale favorites.  This waterside restaurant has a great atmosphere for lunch or dinner.  The Scallops Pomegranate is a must if you are there in the nighttime.

Where to Sleep

Fort Lauderdale has plenty of hotels, and if your budget is tight then not staying right on the beach is understandable.  However, if you can afford it, we recommend a beachfront hotel like Marriot’s BeachPlace Towers.  They even offer in-room massage if you need help recovering from a hard night of partying.

Daytime Activities

Want shopping, culture, and plenty of dining choices?  Spend the day wandering Las Olas Boulevard.  It has numerous art galleries, stores, museums, and restaurants.  While the prices are high, looking is free, and it is a consistent tourist favorite.

Nightlife Activities

America’s Backyard offers that mix of spring break/frat party that made Fort Lauderdale famous.  While the crowd tends to be younger (think college kids), it offers great bachelorette party packages that make planning your party a breeze!

Miami, Florida

miami beach bachelorette party

Miami may be the most international city in the United States, not just because of its diverse population, but because of the way the city embraces all of these people and cultures.  It is a great place to visit and you can custom-plan your bachelorette party in Miami Beach to fit almost any whims!

Where to Eat

You will have to wait in line to get in, but Sunday brunch at the Eating House in Coral Gables is worth the wait!  The menu is ever-changing because of the seasonal offerings, but if they have Carbonara Eggs Benedict on the menu when you are there, the experience is life-changing!

Where to Sleep

Miami Beach is Miami’s hotspot for beachfront activities, and 1 Hotel South Beach is one of the best places to stay.  This beachfront hotel is near South Beach’s best activities and offers a huge variety of room types.  It is pretty pricey, but the views and the service are worth the expense!

You will want to hit the beach, but if you also want a little authentic Miami flavor, we recommend a trip to Little Havana!  This Miami neighborhood offers a taste of Cuba.  Shopping, dining, sight-seeing.  Whatever your interests, Little Havana and its famous Calle Ocho can meet them.

Want to be a southern belle for the weekend and find one of the country’s best low-key bar scenes?  Then a Savannah bachelorette party is the answer.  This historic town does a great job of blending the best of yesterday with ultra-modern touches to create the ultimate low-country vacation.

Where to Eat

There are so many great places to eat in Savannah, but we have to recommend The Pirate’s House.  Sure, the pirate themed décor may seem a little cheesy, but its iconic by now.  Besides, this restaurant, which has been in operation since 1753, did not get centuries of success by turning out food that is anything less than delicious.  Try the She Crab Soup. 

Where to Sleep

There are so many hotels in Savannah, but we like ones like the Hamilton Turner Inn, which show off some of the city’s famous architecture!

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

myrtle beach bachelorette party

Myrtle Beach is a very interesting place, in terms of tourist destinations.  It manages to offer some amazing entertainment, but it never loses its small-town charm.  That is a hard balance to find, but anyone who has been to Myrtle Beach knows exactly what it means to feel right at home, even in the busiest tourist season.

Where to Eat

Known for its all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet, Mammy’s Kitchen has become a traditional breakfast place for Myrtle Beach visitors.  Think southern-style food, cooked well, and plenty of it.  Highly recommended to help battle any day-after hangovers!

Hotels are a bargain in Myrtle Beach.  You can even stay somewhere swanky like the Anderson Ocean Club and Spa for a fairly inexpensive price.  What makes it our favorite?  The lazy river.

Charleston, South Carolina

charleston bachelorette party

What do we love about a Charleston bachelorette party?  Everything.  Seriously, this southern city is so packed full of charm that it is hard to pick a favorite thing to do there.  Much like a visit to its soul sister city, New Orleans, you could spend the whole weekend in Charleston just walking around the city, enjoying the ambiance.  However, we do have some things to do if you get tired of wandering.

Where to Eat

You may head to Toast for their famous bottomless mimosas, but we promise that you will love their brunches.  Skip the calorie-counting for this meal and order traditional southern biscuits and gravy.  You will love them! – Known for their bottomless mimosas, Toast actually has some of the city’s best brunch and breakfast fare.  Come try their amazing omelets, homemade warm biscuit w/ gravy, and desserts to see why The New York Times considers it a must-eat place while in Charleston.  http://www.toastofcharleston.com/

Where to Sleep

Our favorite hotel in Charleston is the Belmond Charleston Place.  It has shops, a spa, on-site restaurants, and a gorgeous indoor-outdoor pool.  You might not think you can afford it, but do yourself a favor and book the Belmond Hotel Club Level (view pictures).  You get free meals and five hours of open bar each day for an extra $100/day.

Virginia Beach, Virginia

virginia beach bachelorette party

Virginia Beach is not your average beach town.  It sits right where the Atlantic Ocean meets Chesapeake Bay, so, while it is surrounded by water, it has a different vibe than a traditional beach town.  What is that vibe?  Think of Virginia Beach as a large town with a small town feel, filled with beach bums, foodies, and a surprisingly rich cultural scene!

View Flight Prices to Norfolk (which is a 25 minute ride to VA Beach)

Where to Eat

Waterman’s Surfside Grill is a Virginia Beach establishment.  What makes it so popular with tourists and locals, alike?  Delicious seafood, fresh from Chesapeake Bay.  It is not fancy, but the food is amazing.  They will also work with you to host a party, if you want something a little more than dinner reservations.

Where to Sleep

If you are visiting the ocean, we are firm believers that you should stay by the ocean.  Virginia Beach’s Ocean Club Beach Resort offers a condo-type setting on the beachfront.  Not a fan of salt water or swimming creatures?  Check out one of their three amazing pools.

Sky Bar is a members-only club in Virginia Beach, and, if you can swing it, it is the place to be.  Apply ahead-of-time for membership and have a back-up plan just in case you do not get accepted.

Ocean City, Maryland

ocean city maryland bachelorette party

One of the reasons people love to visit Ocean City is that it offers a bright mix between the throwback feel of a boardwalk town and the excitement of a beach town.  Ocean City may not be your first thought when you think of bachelorette party destinations, but it offers a great time and an even better value.

Buddakan at Caesars is one of our favorite restaurants in Atlantic City.  It is not your average Asian cuisine.  Try the five spice duck breast for a five-star take on a traditional Asian favorite.

With the casinos all over Atlantic City, you will probably stay in a casino-hotel.  Each of them have their draws, but we like the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa.  It has a European feel, a great game floor, and one of the city’s best hotel buffets.

The Hamptons, New York

bachelorette party hamptons ny

The Hamptons, a group of villages and Hamlets on Long Island are probably the nation’s oldest summer colonies.  Known for its summer lifestyle, The Hamptons is considered a luxe travel destination for the rich and famous, but also offers plenty of recreational opportunities for the rest of us.

Where to Eat

With a silly name like Cowfish, you may not know what to expect from this New American cuisine eatery.  They say they offer the best of land and sea, and they are a sure bet whether you are dining for brunch, lunch or dinner.  Our favorite time there is brunch, because the great view combines with an inventive menu.  We suggest the Bananas Foster French Toast.

Where to Sleep

The popular thing to do for lodging is to rent a summer home somewhere in the Hamptons.  They used to be hard to find, but Airbnb makes it easy.  We love this mint condition historic Hampton property that is walking distance from shops, restaurants, and public transportation.  Plus, it comes with a private pool!
