When my best friend from kindergarten, Rebecca, got engaged I was over the moon and so excited when she decided on Austin to celebrate her bachelorette! Austin is a great bachelorette city for groups who want a combination of adventure, nature, live music and a great nightlife, all the tacos and amazing food, and a charming southern vibe. It’s central location was also perfect for our bicoastal crew as we had girls flying in from NY and CA. I highly recommend getting an AirBnB so everyone can be together and have it feel like one big slumber party.
We were obsessed with our colonial mansion that had tons of rooms, a great kitchen, was stocked with lots of supplies, and best of all an amazing location near Rainey St. Here’s the link.
While this guide is great for group celebrations, it would also make for an eventful weekend away with anyone special. Hope you enjoy!
Thursday 7 pm– Dinner at Fresca’s , casual Tex Mex and healthy options with an amazing patio vibe. Order the avocado margarita. It’s creamy and doesn’t particularly taste like avocado but it delicious and refreshing. Loved their rotisserie chicken, guacamole, brussel sprouts and street corn.
Thursday 9 pm– Drinks at Marriott Marquee downtown. Great rooftop bar at their pool.
Friday 10 am– Time to sweat to compensate for all the treats to come! We had a blast at knockout boxing, such a fun class, instructor, great music and activity.
Friday 1 pm– Lunch at launderette. We loved the food and vibe! Ordered some apps for the table and the food was trendy and tasty for a pretty good price.
Friday 3 pm– Time to cool off and people watch at Barton Springs pool! A summer must in Austin.
Friday 6 pm- Shop and explore South Congress St. Stopped for happy hour at Hotel San Jose. Get the frose’ and cheese board.
Friday 8:30 pm- Lounge at house, get ready to go out, and order BBQ/ Tex Mex takeout from Valentina. Their queso was amazing.
Friday 10 pm- Night out on Rainey Street filled with tons of cute bungalow bars.
Saturday 10 am- The BEST breakfast tacos ever at Veracruz All Natural. Get the migas tacos.
Saturday 11:30 am- Get ready to float the San Marcos river! Another summer must in Texas. Pack a cooler with beverages to enjoy on the river, lots of sunscreen, water shoes, and string to tie your tubes together so you don’t lose your friends! We all loved this adventure and was a highlight. We used ATXexcursions who were great and provided transportation, the tubes, and coolers.
Saturday 8 pm- After a nap and shower its time to keep the party alive! Grab dinner on the patio at Contigo. Afterwards go enjoy live music and an entertaining crew at Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar on 6th street. Make sure you get your bride on stage!
Sunday 11 am- Farewell brunch at Jacoby’s. Sad to say goodbye but best weekend ever!
Tips: Book your airbnb 4-5 months out, they fill up fast! Book dinner reservations for large groups a month or so before. Order groceries for the house through Shipt who will deliver. Etsy has great bachelorette/ final fiesta decorations and we loved getting tattoos with our bride’s face on it. Matching pajamas from Jcrew really enhanced the slumber party vibe.
