Simply put, it’s one of the best cities to host a memorable bachelor or bachelorette party your friends will remember for years to come. This beachside city is a hot spot for fun and entertainment, whether your crew is hankering for a relaxed day in the sun or a lively all-nighter at Miami’s many bars and clubs (why not both?).
Your special event can go the traditional route – think dinner and a bar crawl – or you can spice it up with food and wine tastings, a day on a party boat, or even a scenic helicopter tour. Here are some of our favorite ways to celebrate the bride or groom with an unforgettable Miami bachelor/ette party.
Party on the Water
If your crew is the outdoorsy type, kick off your celebration with a cruise or party boat trip. Miami is a hub for water activities, drawing you in with its sparkling blue waters, stunning views, and incredible waterfront homes. There’s always a chance to spot marine life like dolphins as you sit back and soak up the sun.
You can have a lazy day on the water with tropical cocktails, or take it up a notch and do some fun activities like tubing, paddleboarding, wakeboarding, or fishing. If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, you can’t go wrong with jet skiing or speedboat tours. Some Miami boat charters will take you out to a sandbar, where you can hang out in shallow water and play floating beer pong!
Keep the fun going into the night with a skyline boat tour or sunset cruise. Open bars and live DJs set the mood for your Florida bachelor/ette party celebration with the incredible Miami skyline at sunset as a picturesque backdrop.
Take to the Sky
Want to go all out for your Miami bachelor or bachelorette party? You’ll get major brownie points with the bride or groom for planning a once-in-a-lifetime helicopter tour, and Miami is the place to splurge on this exciting activity. If riding in a helicopter is on your bucket list, you won’t want to miss the chance to take flight over Miami.
Thrills and stunning views combine to create an experience that is sure to amaze your bachelor/ette party group. You’ll be able to glimpse the recognizable Art Deco architecture, long beaches, turquoise waters, and popular landmarks around the city. The helicopters can even fly relatively low over Miami, getting you up close to the magic. The guest of honor will surely thank you for this one!
Stroll Lincoln Road
Head to Miami Beach’s main pedestrian thoroughfare, Lincoln Road, for some designer shopping, fantastic restaurants, and great nightlife. This isn’t just for bachelorette parties – there’s plenty to enjoy for the guys as well. Lincoln Road is a cultural hub with famous theaters like the Lincoln Theatre and Colony Theatre. Visit galleries, sip cocktails, and just enjoy some people watching.
Visit Miami’s Best Bars
Ride the EAST Miami hotel elevator to the 40th floor for drinks at Sugar, the city’s trendiest rooftop bar. You just can’t beat those 360-degree views! Located in Brickell, a bustling neighborhood in the downtown area, Sugar is known for its creative Asian-inspired drinks and tapas. The lychee blossom is a delicious blend of vodka, sake, and lychee puree. Get there early (or on a weekday) to snag a spot.
Head over to South Beach for drinks at Sweet Liberty, where you can snack on tasty tater tots and enjoy a diverse cocktail menu.

Whether you’re into electronic, Latin, or hip-hop beats, you’re sure to find a club with your exact music taste. The best part is that many of them are within walking distance, especially if you party in South Beach.
These all-night venues don’t tend to fill up until around 12:30 to 1:30 a.m., so you have plenty of time for daytime activities and dinner plans (and maybe a quick nap!).

Play Golf… or TopGolf!
Golf is a fun and photo-worthy bachelor/ette party activity, especially on the beautiful courses all throughout Miami. It’s easy to see why Florida is a year-round golfing destination. Sunny skies and perfectly manicured greens are every golfer’s dream. You can’t miss a chance to bring your “A” game among mangroves and palm trees as the cool ocean breeze keeps you comfortable all day long. Check out Normandy Shores Golf Club, Deering Bay Yacht & Country Club, and Miami Shores Country Club.
If playing a full 18 holes isn’t really your thing, give TopGolf a try. This interactive, real-life golf video game promises fun for every member of your party – even if you’re new to the sport. The venue’s high-tech driving range overlooks a 200-yard outfield with targets at varying distances. Players hit golf balls at the targets and score points for accuracy which are displayed on a large screen in your personal bay. Did we mention that you can order food and drinks tableside?
