Despite the purely fictional story of several buddies on a bachelor party weekend that is currently out in theaters, some travelers will attempt to top the tiger-in-the-bathroom antics with their own rowdy vacations. With summer in full swing, hotels.com® provides a list of three fun cities for those looking for a wild weekend. Party at your own risk – hotels.com is not responsible for any lapses of judgment, embarrassing photographs or screaming headaches.
“Wedding season is here and many bachelor and bachelorette weekend travelers are seeking a wilder weekend getaway rather than the relaxing vacations most travelers typically book during the summer months,” said Taylor L. Cole, APR, director of public relations and social media for hotels.com. “We are influenced by our favorite movies, and even though we realize reality can never match the big screen, it is fun to mimic our favorite movie stars.”
Las Vegas is often referred to as the Disney World for adults. From taking in the party scene or a show, to enjoying one of the many buffets …the city of sin is a haven for girlfriend getaways and mancations. For a luxurious Vegas penthouse experience, hotels.com recommends the beautiful 4.5-star Bellagio hotel and casino, which averages $289 per weekend night in June. Centrally located in the middle of the Strip, parties can gamble, dine and enjoy the dancing fountains until the morning hours.
Summer Break Hotels for Adults
Who says summer break ends with the acquisition of a college diploma? Just because adults are more responsible during the work week doesn’t mean they can’t skip off to Florida for a beach-filled adventure. Miami Beach in Florida is home to warm tides, hot clubs and frozen Miami Vices. The five-star Ritz-Carlton, South Beach offers weekend rates averaging $279 per room, per night and sits directly on the beach. The hotel presents a lavish way to celebrate a friend’s impending nuptials. Home to exclusive outdoor lounges, the city of Miami parties well into the evening and is always in style. The Marriott South Beach is home of the Deco Blue Restaurant and Bar, a chic lounge where visitors can sip on strong mojitos. Travelers looking to sleep where they party will relish this 3.5-star property’s wallet-friendly prices of $209 per room, per night.
It’s Always Mardi Gras in New Orleans
Lovers of this historic city will swear the worst week to go is during the tourist-infested February Mardi Gras celebration. For the bachelorette or bachelor party seeking a classier stay, the W New Orleans – French Quarter is a four-star luxury hotel located in the heart of the French Quarter offering weekend rates averaging $239 per room, per night this summer. Whether appreciating true jazz music, enjoying strong Bloody Mary’s or strolling along Bourbon Street – visiting New Orleans during the summer is the best time to create fun memories or enjoy a last weekend of freedom before the wedding.
