Cold Weather Winter Bachelorette Party Destinations
If you’re looking to lean into the winter weather and celebrate your bachelorette on the ski slopes or cozied up by the fire with your girls, look no further. Here are the top three winter bachelorette party destinations for the ladies who love nothing more than donning all their layers and watching the snow fall.
Jackson Hole, Wyoming
This upscale resort town is like a winter lover’s mecca. While Jackson Hole was originally a rustic ranching community, it’s become a hotspot for high-end winter vacations, including bachelorette parties. It’s even attracted the likes of Kanye West, Brad Pitt, and Sandra Bullock, who have all owned homes there.
You’ll most likely spend time skiing or snowboarding through the fresh powder at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. But there are plenty of other things to do in Jackson Hole:
Lake Tahoe, California
Tahoe has so much to offer winter bachelorette parties! If you come towards the beginning or end of winter, there’s lots of incredible hiking to do. In the height of winter, skiing is everyone’s favorite way to pass the time. And the people of Tahoe make sport of the après ski lifestyle, grabbing cocktails and partying hard after a day on the slopes.
While you’ll have to travel a bit farther to this winter bachelorette party destination if you’re based in the US, Banff is so worth it for the incredible mountain views and crisp winter air. The town of Banff is boutiquey and charming like Jackson Hole, but with it’s own unique blend of upscale resort options, wellness spas, and outdoor activities.
Don’t miss a ride in one of Banff’s many gondolas. You have to check out the stunning turquoise waters of Lake Louise, as well. If you and your girls want to treat yourselves, book treatments at the luxurious Willow Stream Spa. And for fun food and drink, many swear by Block Kitchen and Bar for the best tapas and cocktails.
Tropical Destinations for a Winter Bachelorette Party
Not so keen on the frigid temps of winter? No worries, I’ve got you covered. Here are the top three winter bachelorette party destinations for those who want to escape to tropical paradise with their crew to celebrate.
Seriously, is there anything closer to paradise than Hawaii?! Maui is a fabulous winter bachelorette party destination for ladies who want to party just as much as they want to enjoy the gorgeous nature the island has to offer. From the stunning beaches and volcanoes to the wild nightlife scene, you and your girls will stay plenty entertained in Maui.
Of course, you’ll want to hit all the beaches you can during your Hawaiian bachelorette. Wailea is well loved for its selections of resorts, while Kahului is great for water sports and Wailuku is a snorkeler’s dream. For a dose of extra fun, you can take a group hula class with the ladies before heading out for a night of fun at the South Shore Tiki Lounge or Vibe Bar Maui.
Of course Orlando is a fabulous winter bachelorette party destination for beach lovers. However, it’s also a dream come true for Disney-loving bach groups. If you and your crew love all things Mickey and/or Harry Potter, Orlando could be your perfect pick!

Whether you’re partying all day at Cocoa Beach or donning your Minnie ears at the theme park, Orlando has incredible weather throughout the winter season that serves as a lovely reprieve from the lower temperatures across the rest of the US. Make sure to stop by La Cava del Tequila for shots and delicious margaritas. And for dinner, you can’t go wrong with Antonio’s.
Looking for that boho-yet-boujee beach vibe? Then you absolutely have to head to Tulum for a tropical/beach bachelorette party! They even have a name for the people who keep coming back to this boutique resort strip along the Caribbean: the ever-illustrious Tuluminati. Throw on your best linens and floppiest hat and you’ll fit the scene immediately!
For the best experience, stay in one of the hotels along the beach strip. If you stay in town you’ll save some cash, but it’s much less convenient to get to the beach. Popular choices include The Mezzanine and Azulik. Spend your days lounging by the ocean with your girls before catching a DJ set at Papaya Playa Project.
Winter Bachelorette Party Destinations in the City
If you’re a city girl at heart and aren’t looking to escape to the ski slopes or the beach for your winter bachelorette party, here are the best three city destinations. Because who needs nature when you can bar hop to your heart’s content, enjoy some evening entertainment, and grab late-late-late-night snacks on the way home?
New York City, New York
Of course NYC has to be top of list for city bach party destinations. While New York can get pretty cold between November and February, there are so many cute winter activities to do with your girls! Plus, it’s a great excuse to cozy up in a nice wine bar or cafe as often as possible with your crew in between excursions.
Here’s some great winter bachelorette party activities to do in New York:
- take a horse-drawn carriage through Central Park bundled in blankets
- Warm up with some cozy drinks at Tavern on the Green, an iconic restaurant located right in the park
- Head to a rooftop bar along the Chelsea High Line
- Catch a live show in Bushwick
- Comedy lovers can’t miss a stop at the infamous Comedy Cellar
- Indulge in a Michelin starred spot like Cote or Eleven Madison Park
San Diego, California
This SoCal destination is an underrated option for winter bachelorette parties who want good weather and chill city vibes. While summer is best if you want to swim while in San Diego, a winter bachelorette party in San Diego is great for exploring all the city has to offer and taking day trips to the beautiful surrounding areas.
Of course, if you’re headed to California with the ladies, a wine tasting is pretty much obligatory. Bernardo Winery and Orfila Vineyards are within driving distance and perfect for bachelorette parties in search of good vino. You can also book yoga classes right on the beach, take a spa day, and then treat yourself to some of the best Mexican food this side of the border at the likes of Coasterra or Curadero.
Mexico City, Mexico
If San Diego doesn’t quite scratch your itch for delicious Mexican food and lively culture, then there’s nothing else to do but head to the capital of Mexico itself for your winter bachelorette party! This sprawling city is a dream come true for foodies, history buffs, and nightlife fiends. Talk about versatility. Por favor y gracias!
During the day, choose between wandering the city and sampling all the al pastor tacos you can handle, scoping out the ancient ruins at nearby Teotihuacán, or day drinking your way through the canals of the Xochimilco neighborhood on the famous trajineras, the colorful boats available for hire. At night, keep the party going at any of the many restaurants and bars in the gorgeous and upscale La Roma neighborhood—I’ve heard Blanco Colima is to die for in particular.
