Tasked with organizing the ultimate bachelorette party in the Motor City? When it comes to planning the perfect last fling before the ring, Detroit has some great activates to celebrate the bride. Whether your bride is creative, athletic or a social butterfly, these great Motor City activities could suit any bride’s style.
1. Pole dancing
A bachelorette party is a great time to release the inner sexy woman and pole dancing is great for the athletic and the inactive. Vixen Fitness in Ann Arbor provides a safe and fun environment for women of all ages, shapes and sizes to embrace their sensual side and get a little workout. Groups can pick from a one hour pole dancing or lapdancing lesson. And Vixen Fitness allows you to bring your own bottle of champagne to toast the bride. Cheers!
If a few hours isn’t long enough and your need a weekend to celebrate, then check out the deals at the casinos in downtown Detroit. No need to incur the airfare to Vegas when you can find three great casinos in your backyard: Greektown Casino, MGM Grand and the Motor City Casino. You can all play a round of Blackjack or try your luck at the slot machines, and enjoy a night of dining and entertainment. And you don’t want to Uber home, plan an overnight stay and take part in a day of indulgence at the highly recommended IMMERSE Spa inside MGM Grand Detroit.
Speaking of spas, if pampering is your focus, then a day at the spa may be exactly what the maid of honor should plan for her bride. Who can resist being pampered with a hot stone massage and relaxing manicure and pedicure? You don’t need to travel far to find a great spa in Detroit but a few of our favorite ones are Beach House Day Spa in Birmingham, Visions Spa Salon in Novi, Woodhouse Spa in Detroit.
For brides looking to spend the day with close friends but not partake in all the usual bachelorette party antics the Detroit Institute of Arts is a great choice.
This venue within Detroit is a gem for a multitude of reasons, including the fact that it houses one of the largest and most significant art collections in the United States. For residents of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties, admission is free. And once the bride and her party are finished taking in the beauty of the exhibits, head to the Kresge Court inside the museum to lounge with friends to enjoy a glass of wine and a some charcuterie.
Let’s not forget a great adventure for our outdoor enthusiast. Stony Creek Metropark is a man-made lake built by damming Stony Creek, located in Washington Township. Whether you plan to mountain bike, hike or inline skate there are plenty of trails for each. The park also has two beaches, a boat launch as well as rowboats, paddleboards, canoes and kayaks to rent.
And don’t worry if you are planning a bachelorette party in the winter, Stony Creek is open for cross country skiing and guests can rent skis on site.
If you are looking for something out of the ordinary then why not book a bachelorette party at the Detroit Flyhouse Circus School. Classes are geared to all levels of fitness and instructors are highly trained in teaching the circus arts in a safe environment. Whether you try a mixed aerials or hoop dance class, you’ll definitely get a great workout and strengthen your core while having fun.
7. Scavenger hunt
If you’re looking for an activity that appeals to all ages and types — something that connects your bride’s best childhood friend, her college roommate, her new sister-in-law and her crazy Aunt Rose? What about a scavenger hunt?
At Go Scavenger Hunts we create bachelorette hunts that focus fun challenges about the bride as well as learning about one another. We can design a custom hunt specific to your bride and her friends and family, which includes all your photos from the event. So regardless if you’re downtown at the casinos or hanging out at the beach at Stony Creek — or you’re anywhere else where there’s people walking around — you can hunt!
