We surveyed over 1,000 women to find out what the most popular bachelorette party destinations are. The results? Las Vegas tops the list followed by beach favorites and wine country.
Over the past five years, bachelorette parties have exploded. No longer are brides-to-be celebrating their final fling with a simple night out on the town. Instead, brides and their squads are jet-setting to destinations around the world for weekend-long getaways with their besties.
We wanted to know what the most popular bachelorette party destinations are, so we surveyed over 1,000 women around the United States to find out.
What’d we learn? While Las Vegas is still the crowd-favorite, Nashville was a close second followed by popular beach destinations like Miami, Mexico, Charleston and Key West. Think Disney World is just for kids? Think again. Women ranked the famous Disney parks as their tenth favorite destinations for bachelorette weekends. We were also excited to see some up-and-coming destinations like Palm Springs and Lake Tahoe make the Top 15.
