Destination Bachelorette Parties For BFFs Who Don't Do Lap Dances

Somebody's getting themselves hitched. WOOOOO!
Now that we've gotten that over and done with, let's talk celebratory specifics: no surprises, no feather boas, no scavenger hunts, and — most importantly — no strippers. So, what's a group of girls to do that doesn't involve a trip to Historical Williamsburg?
Well, we've got some answers. Having a great, memorable time without recreating The Hangover is totally possible, and we've picked five destinations for a bachelorette weekend that'll maximize the chica-bonding, wine-guzzling, and — let's not kid ourselves — Instagramming opportunities. This ain't Vegas, folks. What happens on this weekend lives on forever, on the Internet.

Sausalito, California — Buy a case of wine and head for the coast. There are magical things called floating homes for rent that'll allow you to eat breakfast with your toes in the water and start your evening's festivities watching the sunset reflect off the bay.

Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin — Wisconsin Dells is a city in south-central Wisconsin that is filled with waterparks. For those among us who haven't yet outgrown of their water slide days, this is the best inexpensive option for a weekend full of tubing, lazy river-ing, go-karting, and general fun-having.

Reykjavik, Iceland — From the East Coast, it's a short trip to Reykjavik with plane tickets costing less than a jaunt to London or Paris. With a city full of outdoor springs, spas, hiking trails, great food, and — boing! — Northern Lights sightings — it's the ideal spot if you're looking to rewind, kick back, and smear some mud on your best friend's face.

New Orleans, Louisiana — When it comes to the trifecta — dinner, drinks, and dancing — New Orleans can't really be beat. If you really want to go for it, you can spend your entire time on Bourban street, but if you're not quite the frat bro type, there are plenty of neighborhoods that are rich in excitement and don't require purple-and-gold beads as an entrance fee. Plus, with dozens of farmer's markets, brunch spots, and historical sites all around, you'll be able to nurse your hangover in grand fashion.
