In 2009 I made my way to Miami for my first ever bachelorette party. I was newly 21, and ready to have a raging good time. I made sure to fill the weekend with booze and sun and dancing and booze and food and more booze. For my 21-year-old self, it was the perfect crazy bachelorette weekend.
As a top bachelorette party destination, Miami is bound to drum up images of partying and drinking and all the craziness that comes with the territory. However, it doesn’t have to! As I prepare for another bachelorette party in Miami, six years later, I plan to do things a bit differently this time around.
Luckily, Miami is a gold mine for staying active and healthy (check out these active adventures in Miami). The key to a healthy Miami party vacation is to balance the food and alcohol with spa appointments and activities that get your heart pumping.
Book an Amazing Hotel Suite with Amenities
It’s cheaper and more fun to book a big suite for everyone to share, instead of everyone getting their own rooms. They key to a sweet suite (ha!) is to find a place with ample room to chill out, a wet bar en suite, and preferably a balcony. If health is important to you, find a hotel that has a great fitness center, that way those who want to get a workout in can do it. We are looking into staying at the Loews South Beach for its convenient spot and beautiful pool, but there’s no shortage of great hotels in Miami.
Get a Workout in with the Whole Crew
There are tons of fun workout classes in Miami that are perfect for getting your sweat on with everyone. Barry’s Bootcamp is a high intensity boot camp class popular with celebrities. Flywheel Sports is an indoor spinning stadium with a peppy and competitive vibe. And the Vixen Workout is a dance class in a club like atmosphere!
Whatever kind of activity you and your friends like to do, you are bound to find something suitable in Miami for all fitness levels and desires!
Live it up at the Spa
No bachelorette party is complete without some time spent at the spa. Gather the ladies and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul with spa treatments, spa food, and the whole shebang. I am using this local expert guide on the top spas in Miami to decide where we will be getting our services.
Choose to Eat Well
Eating is a huge part of having a healthy and enjoyable vacation. You can eat well (and a lot) without having to feel guilty for indulging. Do some research. Go to restaurants that use local food and offer diners an incredible experience. Check out this article on Food Network Inspired Restaurants in Miami, or this Huffington Post article on Miami’s best brunch spots.
By including good eats, relaxing spa treatments, workouts and quality time together, you can easily have a fun-filled, healthy Miami bachelorette party!
