Choose Key West as Your Bachelorette Party Destination

Choose Key West as Your Bachelorette Party Destination

February 28th, 2019 | Weddings

Key West is a fabulous destination choice for a bachelorette party. Its lively nightlife on Duval Street is undeniable, bonding activities are easy to come by, happy hour is both a morning and evening affair, and time at the beach or poolside is an everyday possibility.

Here’s a look at why you’ll want to consider Key West as your last hurrah before exchanging vows. 


This is both easy and varied in Key West. Some ideas? Head to Smathers Beach, where friends can check out rental options at Sunset Watersports (and friends who want to hang back can enjoy lounging on the beach). You can also all pitch in for a sunset cruise, which goes particularly well with champagne. For different sightseeing tours that can be enjoyed by beach cruiser, on foot, or the Conch Train (it’s real), refer to Our Favorite Key West Sightseeing Tours. 

Food & Drink

Daily brunch, seafood happy hour, a dessert restaurant and a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to food and drink in Key West. Tour the local rum distillery or search for the best Key Lime Pie in Key West. When coming up with ideas for your trip, refer to our Bars & Nightlife and Food & Dining local guides.


Of course we’re partial, but The Gates Key West is an ideal choice for your stay. We’ve earned recognition from Condé Nast for our sophisticated design and comfort. Our pool is adjacent to our lively bar and cigar lounge, Rum Row, which serves fine cocktails made with locally-distilled rum. As far as food options, our onsite food truck The Blind Pig serves food from 7am to 10pm. For morning coffee, Starbucks is located just steps away from your stay. Best of all, our shuttle to Mallory Square and bike rental services make it easy for you and your friends to get around.
