Hi all, we are back for our third installment of top bachelorette party destinations in the U.S. Today, we are talking about going to the West Coast to celebrate the bride in San Diego. But first, I wanted to highlight some fun deals on some beachy bachelorette party items that are must-haves for this location:
Beach Bach Must-Haves
San Diego is such a fun place for a bachelorette party. It has fantastic weather, tons of activities and a great night life.
First off, where to stay? If you opt to stay in a hotel instead of an Airbnb, we recommend the Manchester Grand Hyatt, which is centrally located to the water, many fantastic restaurants, the Gaslamp Quarter and all of the activities. Bonus: this hotel is right on the water. If you and your ladies had more of a relaxing bachelorette party in mind, we also recommend the Rancho Valencia Resort and Spa, which has an incredible spa and pool. There are also some fantastic Airbnb locations available in San Diego, which can be ideal for a larger group who all wants to stay together.
What to do? You & YoursThere are so many fantastic activities to take part in. Why not spend part of the day at the beach where you can swim, have a bonfire or a picnic – this is great if you have a lot of out-of-town guests attending the bachelorette party. You can also try , which is a female-owned distillery. Tent a poolside cabana at The Lafayette Hotel and Swim Club. There are some great, local hikes in the area if you want to get out and get moving. The Ballast Point Brewery is also in the area. In fact, San Diego has a great craft beer scene, so why not try more then one? Walk around Liberty Public Market (protip: you can walk around with adult beverages in hand) and so some shopping and eating. You can visit Old Town San Diego, where you must swing by the Cosmopolitan for some margaritas. There is some fun shopping to do there as well.
Where to eat? For breakfast and coffee, head over to Communal Coffee for a latte and avocado toast. For lunch, you can swing by Soda and Swine in Liberty Public Market. For dinner, why not try out the Kettner Exchange, located in Little Italy, which has a rooftop patio. For going out, why not head to the Gaslamp Quarter? It’s a great spot for bachelorette festivities. There are tons of bars, so find one or several you like. Try out the Grass Skirt, which is a poke and popsicle cocktail lounge.
Here is what a sample San Diego Bachelorette Party itinerary might look like:
Friday evening: arrive and check into your hotel or Airbnb.
