It shouldn’t come as a surprise that New York, New York is the first one on this list of best cities for a bachelorette party in the US. The city that never sleeps offers some of the best entertainment, cultural attractions, dining options and nightlife anywhere in the world. If the bride wants to indulge on a spa treatment; you can have your pick at a handful of five-diamond hotel spas. As far as entertainment, there are plays and musicals on Broadway including the award-winning Harry Potter-themed Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Miami Beach

What is there not to like about Miami? Its proximity to the ocean is just one thing; but Miami, infamous for its nightlife, also has a strong cultural and artistic heritage. Every year in early December, some of the world’s famous artists come to the city for Art Basel.  They display their latest creations in the world of modern and contemporary art. There’s also tons of opportunity for vintage shopping (apparel and accessories) and exquisite worldly cuisine such as Azabu and La Mar by Gaston Acurio.  If you’ve got your passport with you, hop on one of the many day cruises to the Bahamas.

San Francisco, California

Afternoon Tea

It’s personally one of my favorite cities in the country; not only for its vibrant atmosphere, but also because of its diversity and innovative spirit. You and your friends can go on a culinary adventure in the South of Market (SoMa) neighborhood or enjoy afternoon tea at Lovejoy’s Tea Room. There are also plenty of wine tours to Napa, Sonoma or the Central Coast valleys that originate from the city. If going for something more low-key, plan to spend it in Sausalito or Treasure Island where you can enjoy scenic views of San Francisco with great food and company minus the city buzz.

Las Vegas, Nevada

Shopping at Caesar’s Forum Shops

It may have started primarily as a destination for Tinsletown stars to let off some steam but over the years, it saw itself transform into more than just a gambling destination. The shopping opportunities, both high-end and discount, is one to be reckoned and the entertainment factor is most certainly top-notched. Those staying in the city can rent a car and head to Red Rock Canyon where you spend a few hours hiking and boulder climbing before capping the day at Vdara Hotel and Spa.
