Planning an Austin, Texas bachelorette party with your best gals? Look no further! This is meant to be your one-stop shop with everything you need to prep for your Austin Bachelorette Party Itinerary. We’re sharing all the details on where to stay, what to wear, the trendiest restaurants to eat at, which bars are absolutely worth visiting, and endless activity options in this lively city. We promise you will not get bored during your ATX girls weekend with these recommendations! Enjoy!
Something to take into consideration is that Austin is spread out. It can get suburban real quick. You want to be somewhat central so it’s either a quick Uber ride or walk to where everything is! If you are looking for a low key chill stay or have a larger group, renting an Airbnb or VRBO is likely the way to go.
At the crossroads where Town Lake meets downtown, the LINE Austin offers an infinity pool and rooftop cocktail bar overlooking Lady Bird Lake and Congress Avenue Bridge. Settle into a semi-submerged sun-lounger, sip cocktails under the tartan umbrellas, or cozy up by the outdoor fireplace.
If you’re looking for a winery type weekend check out this retro 1960’s roadside motel in the heart of the famous wine trail. Surrounded by over 75 wineries, breweries, distilleries and restaurants, this little slice of history has been dusted off and restored into a unique boutique hotel with vintage vibes.
A Hill Country hideaway hotel, the Lucky Arrow Retreat offers luxury cabins and yurts designed with the perfect combination of rustic charm and modern aesthetics. Watch out Napa, Dripping Springs Wineries is coming for you.
ATX is warm year-round, and especially hot during the summer months… we’re talking 100°F temps. What better way to cool-down than spending an afternoon on the water with your BFFs! This is also a great opportunity for matching swimsuits, trendy bucket hats, or a blingy bridal hat.
A party boat is synonymous with bachelorette parties, right?! So, grab your girls and come aboard for a super fun and lively lake day on Lake Austin and Lake Travis. Rated #1 boat service in ATX, Austin Rental Boats offers a range of pontoon party boats to accommodate your crew, from a 22 passenger double-decker with a slide to smaller sized rental options, they have it all! Did we mention, each boat tour is fully equipped with a floating pong table, bluetooth speakers, an XL cooler packed with ice, lily pad float, life jackets, and your own captain.
The Texas Hill Country is home to more than 50 wineries and is basically a second, cheaper Napa Valley. The wine trail is a swirling path of sipping and touring where winemakers are proudly pouring everything from pinots to chardonnays. So, how do you choose where to stop? We’ve handpicked a selection of some of our favorites to get you started!
