The glittering lights, the luxe amenities, and the indulgent lifestyle all make Las Vegas the perfect destination for a bachelorette weekend getaway. With so much going on in this bustling city, it can be hard to decide what to do with and for the bride-to-be. We think that the perfect Vegas trip includes a mix of relaxing, flashy nightlife, gourmet meals, and adrenaline-inducing thrills.

Below are five key ingredients for a memorable weekend:

A Lively Atmosphere

Famous Fremont Street Sign - Las Vegas.

Immerse your group in the atmosphere that Vegas is famous for. Considered one of the most dazzling streets in the world, Fremont Street is a must-see during a Vegas bachelorette trip. While simply walking around the area is entertaining enough, it’s also lined with attractions and world-renowned bars and restaurants. A zip line runs right down the middle of the street while the world’s largest video screen provides entertainment from above. With 12.5 million LED lights and a 550,000-watt sound system, the Viva Vision screen shows off stunning visuals that enhance the Fremont Street experience.

Unique attractions, live music, and glittering casinos add to the lofty list of things to do. Stop into Bar Prohibition at Golden Gate Hotel and Casino for handcrafted drinks and a glamourous speakeasy vibe. The original bar was an oasis for the wild men and women of the roaring 20’s, including Frank Sinatra. Steeped in history and updated with modern glamour, visiting Fremont Street and all of its attractions is sure to be on your bachelorette checklist.

A Thrilling Adventure

From the rides on top of the Stratosphere to the High Roller, Vegas is full of thrilling rides and attractions. Perfect for any adventure-seeking crew, the Voodoo zip line is a great option that can pump some adrenaline into your Vegas trip. Located between the two Rio hotel towers, the zip line sits 500 feet above the ground and can accommodate two riders at a time. This is a great opportunity to get a 360-degree view of the city from above. We recommend taking this thrilling ride at night so that the city lights come to life as you zoom across at speeds up to 33 mph. Since the zip line takes about one minute and ten seconds to complete, having each person in your group take a turn won’t take up a huge chunk of your night. After you’re done (since you’ll probably be in need of a couple drinks), there are a variety of bars and clubs within walking distance for your whole group of gals to enjoy.

A Well-Rounded Nightlife Experience

Nightlife is Vegas’ bread and butter. If your Vegas bachelorette party group is eager to explore the club scene, consider joining a club crawl. A club crawl eliminates the waiting-in-line factor and lumps all club covers into one ticket price (which tends to be cheaper if you’re planning on going to multiple clubs). Most club crawls include a party bus that will take you and your squad from one club to the next so you don’t have to worry about transportation. Sin City Club Crawls offers some great package deals for some of the most acclaimed clubs in Vegas including Omnia, Chateau, Jewel, and Light.

A Historic Landmark

Since its inception, Vegas has been the go-to getaway for stars, which has created a rich, interesting history. The Neon Museum is the perfect place to immerse yourselves in that deep-seated culture and learn more about the city’s roots. Featuring a collection of signage and other Vegas memorabilia from as early as the 1930’s, the museum gives guests a unique peek into the history of Vegas. Knowledgeable tour guides share their wealth of information about where the signs came from, what role they played in Vegas culture, and how the aesthetic and technology shifted over time. The Neon Boneyard is filled with vintage signs and presents the perfect opportunity for a group photo to remember your Vegas bachelorette party. Since you need to reserve spots for the tour, we recommend booking early to secure your spots.

A Girly Activity

Having all the girls together is an opportunity to indulge in things like group manicures, facials, and even a tea party. Satisfy your inner tea-party-loving girl with an afternoon tea session at Tea Lounge. Located inside the Mandarin Oriental hotel, Tea Lounge serves gourmet teas and deliciously delicate foods. Afternoon tea gives your group the perfect opportunity to catch up, indulge, and recover and/or prepare for a night out. Floor to ceiling windows show off gorgeous, Instagram-worthy Vegas views, while plush interiors elevate your experience. Nourish your bodies with detoxifying tea while you enjoy each other’s company at a tea party fit for queens. Since availability is limited, we highly recommend making a reservation beforehand for this bachelorette party activity.

Kiss your bride-to-be’s single years goodbye by enjoying everything Vegas has to offer. Every bachelorette group is different, but the perfect weekend away is almost always made up of nightlife exploration and Vegas-style indulgence. Our city makes it easy to send your bride into married life with bachelorette memories that will last a lifetime.
