Guide to a bachelorette party in Palm Springs
Where to stay for a Scottsdale bachelorette party
The greater Scottsdale area has plenty of Airbnb options with picture-perfect rooms ready for large groups, so your whole bachelorette party can spend the weekend comfortably under the same roof. If you’re coming from afar and have a little extra budget, you can have your space decorated and/or kitchen stocked ahead of your arrival. If you’re looking to be a bit more budget- and eco-conscious, there are some great Etsy makers who sell beautiful and affordable decorations that minimize waste.
Scottsdale’s weather is pretty clear year-round, so you can’t go wrong with the timing of your trip. Some factors that might help you decide on your when:
- It gets pretty hot between May and October, so if warm sun and water activities sound like your style, summer is the time to go.
- November through March is the “cool” season, with average temperatures clocking in at around 55°F. These might be optimal times to plan a trip if things like hiking are your priority. Bring a sweater, though, since it gets chillier after the sun sets.
Choose your own adventure!
Here are some fun bachelorette party activities, by category, that Scottsdale has to offer.

Learn how to plan a Scottsdale bachelorette party in 8 easy steps.
Sip & Chill
Whether you’re going all out or keeping things cozy (or both, depending on the night!), Scottsdale businesses are ready to help you make it happen.
Maya Dayclub is the happening spot for groups celebrating their brides- and grooms- to-be. With a giant, beautiful pool and awesome music, you’ll get the Las Vegas party feel at Maya. Maya is on the premium end of the spectrum, so be sure to check their menu and reservation options before you go!
Do you kiiiiinda want to hire strippers but not quite literally? Allow Scottsdale to introduce: cabana boys who will come hang out, pour drinks, curate fun playlists, help with party games, and more. As an add-on, they’ll also bring pool floaties. For two hours with two cabana boys, you can expect to spend about $550.
Enjoy an elevated dining experience from the comfort of your home! You can choose the cuisine for your multi-course meal, or participate in the cooking with lessons from the chef. Depending on the meal, you can expect to spend $60 – $150 per person.
Have a local mixology coach come teach you how to make cocktails! You’ll learn how to make two or three cocktails and bring home valuable behind-the-bar secrets. Classes are $50 per person for two cocktails and $70 per person for three cocktails, and you’ll also have to stock up on your selected alcohol separately.
Enjoy a 3 hour party bus trip through Scottsdale — bar hop along the way, or cruise along with drinks and tunes on a converted school bus! If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also hire a party bus for a day trip or excursion outside of Scottsdale.
Spend a day visiting 3 Verde Valley wineries in the Sedona area, about 2 hours away from Scottsdale. The AZ Wine Wagon leaves from Scottsdale in the morning and brings you to the Alcantara Vineyard, Javelina Leap, and Page Springs Cellars. You’ll spend about an hour and a half at each. You can reserve individual seats on a trip ($99 per person), or book the whole wagon for your crew ($2,000 total). Tastings and food will be available at each winery but aren’t included in the cost of the wagon.
Bachelorette Adventures in Scottsdale
Scottsdale’s beautiful topography makes for fun adventures and great views. There are trails to suit all levels of experience. AllTrails has filters to help you find one that works best for your group. Some easy, under 2 hour hikes are the Granite Mountain Loop and the Saguaro Loop & Nature Trail. If you’re up for something on the moderately challenging side, Pinnacle Peak Trail and Gateway Loop Trail are 4 miles and 4.4 miles respectively. No matter your route, you really can’t go wrong when it comes to the Arizona landscape.
Choose from a portfolio of beautiful Scottsdale murals and locations to visit on a mural tour in Old Town Scottsdale!

They offer private group trips lasting 2 hours for $499, or individual seats on the Old Town Pub Crawl bike for $49 per person. (Alcohol purchases are additional.)
A sunrise hot air balloon ride might be just the way to start one of your bachelorette party days in Scottsdale.
