One of the most exciting parts of the wedding process is the bachelorette/bachelor getaway with your closest friends. With great company, you are bound to have a fabulous time, but taking the party to the beach adds a whole new exciting twist to any bachelor or bachelorette party plan! Head to Florida’s Emerald Coast where we have your itinerary covered.
Enjoy a nice dinner and night on the town! Northwest Florida is home to several lively cities, bursting with excitement and entertainment. If you are in Destin, make sure to check out either HarborWalk Village or the Village at Baytowne Wharf. In Panama City, Pier Park is home to numerous restaurants and bars – it is a one-stop shop for fun. If history, culture and nightlife appeal to your group, Pensacola is the perfect fit!
Rent a boat or wave runner and cruise the coast. Make pit stops at popular waterfront restaurants or Destin’s must-see “Crab Island.”
If you want to relax and work on your tan, grab some beach towels and sunscreen and head to the beach. Play Frisbee in the sand or fall in and out of sleep to the waves washing onshore. There is nothing more invigorating than the combination of sunshine, saltwater and the smell of coconut products.
Soak up the day’s final hours of light on a sunset cruise. Choose from dolphin cruises or dinner cruises to top off your evening with an incredible experience no one will ever forget.
Start the morning with brunch and bottomless mimosas (or Bloody Marys!) on the harbor with views of passing boats and dolphins.
Before you head out of town, make sure you schedule a fishing trip in Destin, “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village” or swing by the Destin Commons and Silver Sands Outlets to pick up some souvenirs to remember the trip by.
Where to Stay
Condominiums or beach homes are definitely the route to take for bachelor and bachelorette parties. Properties such as SunDestin Beach Resort would be a great choice with its central location right on the beach in Destin with every amenity under the sun. Take advantage of the fully equipped kitchens, living rooms and private balconies overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Pop the margarita mix in the provided blender, fill a glass and enjoy the view!
How to get there
Getting here is quick and easy! If you prefer to fly, check out the local airports such as the Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS), Pensacola International (PNS) and Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) in Panama City Beach. If driving works best, Northwest Florida is only a few hours from some of the South’s major cities.
