There are a lot of stressful decisions you have to make as your wedding day approaches, but where you should have your bachelorette party shouldn’t be one of them. Whether you and your friends would rather relax at a spa, gather together for an evening at a winery, try your hands at a new craft or sport, or take in some local sights, we’ve rounded up some of Saratoga’s best and most unique spots for your bachelorette party.

Spend a Day Getting Pampered

Saratoga Springs is known as the Spa City for a reason. Maybe you’re feeling the stress of planning your wedding and want to take some time off to enjoy a relaxing day with your friends. Or perhaps you’d like to prepare for the big day with makeovers for you and your bridesmaids. If you want a wide selection of offerings, Complexions Spa does everything from mud wraps and facials, to hair and makeup. They’ll also work with you to plan your private party.

Roosevelt Baths & Spa at The Gideon Putnam, located in Saratoga Spa State Park, is perhaps best known for its historic mineral baths. They also offer massages, facials, wraps, manicures, pedicures, and hairstyling. Worried that you won’t be spending much time together? After your treatments, meet up for lunch at Putnam’s Restaurant or take a relaxing walk in the park.

Looking for something a little more unique? Check out Adirondack Salt Cave, a short drive away in Glens Falls, which offers halotherapy in an amazing man-made Himalayan salt cave. Your group can rent the salt cave for a private, 45-minute session and enjoy a unique and relaxing experience. The wellness center also offers a variety of massages and esthetician services.

Take a Tiki Tour on Saratoga Lake

Experience a relaxing, 75-minute tour of Saratoga Lake with the girls—just bring your own snacks, drinks, and playlist to enjoy during your ride on the lake. A Tiki Tour will make a spectacularly memorable addition to your girls getaway!

Unwind With Some Arts & Crafts

Feeling a little artistic and want your friends to go home with one-of-a-kind souvenirs? If you enjoy painting (or want to try something new), Saratoga Paint and Sip Studio offers private parties for a fun afternoon or evening. They feature artists who will lead your group, as well as an in-house bar. Your friends can try copying a painting of your choice, work on a group piece, or try their hands at painting other objects, such as wine glasses.

If you’re looking to create something a little different, Saratoga Clay Arts Center also offers private parties. Spend a fun evening with your bridesmaids in this creative endeavor—everyone will learn a new craft and create their own bowl, which can be picked up at a later date. BYOB!

Have a Day Out With Horses

Having your bachelorette party during track season? Embrace the equestrian spirit of Saratoga and spend the day at the Saratoga Race Course. Encourage everyone to dress up in fun hats and sundresses, and enjoy a day of races in the Grandstand or Clubhouse. Take a break from the crowds for lunch in the Clubhouse or go offsite to one of Downtown Saratoga’s many restaurants.

Enjoy a Night of Local Craft Beverages

Want to spend an evening out with local wine and great food? The Saratoga Winery & Tasting Room hosts private events and features more than 15 of their own signature wines. They also offer local craft beer, appetizers, cheese boards, pizza, and desserts. Either their outdoor patio, lit by strands of lights, or their rustic tasting room will make for the perfect location for your party.

Looking for something a bit more laid back? Bolton Landing Brewing Company is located less than 45 minutes north of Saratoga Springs in Bolton Landing. The brewery is adorable, and has over 15 beers on tap. Their pub bites are also stellar, especially the parmesan truffle fries. Make an afternoon of it—head up to Bolton Landing early, check out the shops in town, and don’t forget to take a stroll to the lake!
