What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, which is why the city has become the ultimate destination for Bachelor and Bachelorette parties.
No matter what your bridal party has in mind for one last party before tying the knot, there are endless possibilities for the very best dining, entertainment, and excitement to enjoy for your last weekend as a single person.
A weekend in Las Vegas should be fun and exciting so we developed this guide to help you with all the planning details from where to stay, to where to play.
Vegas Bachelorette Party Shopping
Think of Las Vegas as Rodeo Drive, Fifth Avenue, and the Champs-Élysées all in one place along with all of your favorite major retailers from around the world. We hope you have some room in your suitcase because you’re going to want to do some serious shopping while you’re in town!
The Shops at Crystals
Fendi, Gucci, Louis, Prada, Hermes, Tiffany—they’re all here. While this is not the mall for the casual shopper, there is no better place for window browsing!
The Forum Shops at Caesars is so massive and sprawling that it’s easy to get lost. Just let it happen. It’s as much fun to wander the long, meandering corridors as it is to pop into the 160+ different shops, from the highest of the high-end and everyday fast fashion to exquisite art galleries and excellent eateries.
Fun and Affordable
Las Vegas has not one but two premium outlet stores flanking either end of the Strip. While the South outlet has plenty of great stores, the North outlet offers a lovely outdoor shopping experience with many more upscale brands and is just minutes from the downtown Las Vegas cultural center.

Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace
The spa at Caesars is 50,000 square feet and includes three Roman baths as well as their signature Arctic Ice Room, the only one of its kind in the world.
Sahra Spa, Salon & Hammam at the Cosmopolitan
Sahra is a spa retreat that pays homage to the sandstone of Red Rock and the desert-scape of Las Vegas in an oasis-like retreat that feels worlds away from the Strip. Enjoy the monsoon rain showers, cooling mist rooms, and relax on the giant heated stone slab in the Hammam room.
Canyon Ranch Spa Club at the Venetian
Canyon Ranch is so much more than a spa: At 134,000 square feet and with more than 90 treatment rooms, it is one of the world’s largest day spas.
In addition to all of the many spa and beauty treatments you would expect, Canyon Ranch also offers group fitness classes and sessions with personal trainers and even has a 40-foot rock wall for climbing practice.
Vegas Bachelorrete PartyOther Helpful Tips
There are a lot of little need-to-knows that you’ll find helpful before you pack your bags and hop on a plane (and in some cases, before you even book your flight). In no particular order, these are the things we think you should be aware of before and during your visit.
Tips from travel experts:
No bachelorette party is complete without seeing a male revue whether it’s Chippendales, Thunder from Down Under, or Magic Mike. My choice is the fantasy-driven Magic Mike Live at the Hard Rock Hotel.
It is not as raunchy as one might expect, but still utterly sexy, impressive, and entertaining. The dancers are extremely talented and engaging, and the female emcee and audience participation will have you laughing in tears.
Another recommendation is for cocktails and light bites or dessert at Vanderpump Cocktail Garden in Caesar’s Palace. The venue is dreamy, dim and twinkling, and the vibe is effortlessly trendy and chic. The cocktails and desserts are equally as beautiful and unlike any others in Vegas. It is the perfect pre or post-dinner treat before a night out with the girls.
1. Stay in the Middle of The Strip. The middle of The Strip is the perfect location to stay, especially if it’s your first trip to Vegas! The Strip is a lot bigger than you think so it’ll make it much easier to get around to all the popular attractions and sights!
2. You Only Need 3 Days. The first time I visited I went for a full 7 days, that’s a lifetime in Vegas! 3-4 days is the perfect amount of time to enjoy everything Las Vegas has to offer without overdoing it!
3. Stock Up. Buy your alcohol at the liquor store and keep it in your room instead of buying all your drinks out. In Las Vegas, it’s legal to walk around with an open container so why not save yourself some money and stock up! Bonus tip: If you plan on gambling the drinks are free! Just wait for the cocktail waitress to come around and approach you.
4. There’s More to Vegas than The Strip. Check out Fremont Street, also considered “Old Vegas”, a 24hr outdoor mall with tons of attractions in Downtown Las Vegas. It’s so entertaining, lively, and fun! Fremont Street is always a good time no matter what you get into!
1. “Of course you want to bring a kicky pair of heels (or two or three) to wear to clubs and casinos. But, keep in mind you will likely do A LOT of walking….Pack a pair of foldable shoes to toss in your purse to make the journey more enjoyable.”
2. “Work off Sin City calories – For a unique workout, Aria hotel guests can book the Indoor Hike, a combination tour of Aria’s $40 million public fine art collection plus exercise session with a fitness instructor.”
Take your bachelorette party to the skies with a helicopter ride with Maverick over the strip at sunset. Or if you want to make a day of it, head out in the helicopters to the Grand Canyon.
Maverick make this experience super fun with music from movies like James Bond, Top Gun and Star Wars to accompany your ride.
After a guided tour over the hoover dam and the canyon, you will land in the canyon itself and enjoy a glass of bubbly with your girlfriends!
It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter.
This is the desert.
It’s dry here, which, yay for those of you whose hair suffers in humid climates, but also know that means the weather lives in extremes. Summer can mean long stretches of 110+ degree heat, especially in July and August, and winter highs might hover in the 50s—which might still be a welcome reprieve if you’re visiting from the Midwest, East Coast, or Northern Plains, but just know you can skip packing the swimsuit in favor of sweaters.
Spring is the best time to visit when temps are temperate and all the desert fauna is in glorious bloom. Fall is nonexistent here.
BRING COMFORTABLE SHOES.
Yes yes, you all want to look cute trotting around in sky-high heels on the Strip but know this: you WILL regret it later. Wedges are a happy compromise.
Don’t expect things to be cheap.
Those Vegas days are LONG over.
Everything is expensive, you’re going to spend more than you planned, and you need to be prepared for this actuality because otherwise, you are going to be miserable and make everyone around you miserable too.
This is a marathon, not a sprint. Don’t be THAT girl.
And drink lots of water.
Seriously. Way more than you think you need.
Rideshare is your chauffeur.
The Las Vegas Strip tends to function like a mirage: Places LOOK a heck of a lot closer than they actually are.
You’ll want to use a rideshare service to get around, especially if you didn’t heed the above advice re: footwear.
Cabs are crazy-expensive and known to pull what is known as “long-haul” shenanigans (taking tourists for a proverbial and literal “ride” in order to charge them more), but rideshare is everywhere and every property has a dedicated are for rideshare pickups, including the airport.
Or you can get a limo, which is also fun, but considerably more expensive!
