What To Do For Your Bachelorette Party In Minnesota: Best Wineries, Fun Activities, & More!

Minnesota is full of hidden gems for your bachelorette party. We know a lot of brides like to travel to a different state or country but it’s expensive and often unrealistic. A fun activity is a great place to start planning your bachelorette party. From vineyards to pottery, we’ve got a ton of ideas for you to check out.

1) Rent A Cute Cabin Up North: Bachelorette Airbnb’s In Minnesota

An Airbnb is a great way to have all your besties under one roof for the weekend. Pick a cute town with nature to explore nearby. Nisswa is a great option -- it's an adorable little town just north of Brainerd with plenty of quirky shops and adorable restaurants. There are lots of resorts and cabins in this area to choose from! Anywhere along Northern Minnesota’s North Shore is also a gorgeous option: Two Harbors, Lutsen, and Silver Bay are some favs!

2) Visit the Best Minnesota Wineries

Bachelorette parties usually involve quite a bit of wine -- so why not visit a winery? Not only are wineries a great place to drink, they also usually have a great selection of light bites and provide a gorgeous backdrop for some bachelorette group photos. 

A few of our favorite Minnesota wineries:

  • Rustic Roots Winery: Located in Scandia MN, stunning views, tons of outdoor space, wine tastings/snacks, etc. Complements a trip to Stillwater nicely!
  • Cannon River Winery: Located in Cannon Falls, wine tasting, oftentimes live music, pair this with a bike ride along the Cannon Valley Trail.
  • 7 Vines Vineyard: Located in Dellwood - just north of the cities, a stunning space indoor and out.
  • Dancing Dragonfly Winery: Located in Wisconsin, but not far from the Taylors Falls area. 

3) Consider a Pontoon Rental On Lake Minnetonka or White Bear Lake

Pontoon boats are the perfect vessel for drinking, relaxing, tanning, and dancing. Rent a pontoon and float all day with your bachelorette party. Lake Minnetonka or White Bear Lake are both known as great bachelorette party locations. These lakes are perfect for boating around and they both have great restaurants, bars, and activities.

4) Have a Minneapolis Bachelorette Party In the City

Plan a few sightseeing activities and choose some up-and-coming cocktail bars to visit. Below are some crowd-favorite Minneapolis bachelorette party ideas.

Go Out for Drinks at Some Interesting & Unique Places

  • Young Joni: A fun, speakeasy-themed bar with retro decor and amazing pizza

5) Catch Dinner & A Show at Chanhassen Dinner Theatre

What’s better than dinner and a show? Check out the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre one night for a great meal and even better performances. They have a ton of different shows throughout the year from their weekly Comedy Cabaret to musical theater performances to drag shows! You can eat and drink throughout the night while laughing and clapping along with the performances. 

6) Take A Pottery or Painting Class at a Local Art Studio

Get crafty with the girls at an art class! Whether you do a “paint and sip” or a pottery class, everyone will love having a hands-on activity. Plus, they’ll be able to create something they can keep forever as a souvenir (or just a funny memento for the less-than-artistic girlies). Taking an art class with your favorite people is a great opportunity to reawaken and nurture the artist in you. One option is Upstairs Circus -- a crafting bar in Minneapolis with tons of projects to choose from and options to host a private party.

7) Combine Mini Golfing, Arcade Games, & Drinks at Can Can Wonderland

Can Can Wonderland is a huge indoor entertainment park located in St. Paul. If you’re looking for bachelorette activities, this place has it all: indoor mini golf, arcade games, pinball, live entertainment, and a full bar. The admission fee covers unlimited arcade games and pinball games, plus live shows. The mini golf is an extra feel but it’s full of whimsical and artsy decor that you won’t want to miss. Be sure to check the entertainment schedule to see what kinds of shows are available on your bachelorette weekend.

8) Have An Adorable (& Relaxed) Picnic In At A Minnesota Park

Instead of having every meal in a restaurant, try having a picnic. Buy ingredients for sandwiches, salads, or a charcuterie board and let the girls enjoy an outdoor meal. Then pack your best picnic blanket and pick a scenic park!

Some picnic-friendly parks we love:

  • Como Park & Zoo: A darling park in St. Paul with gardens, ponds, and open space; plus, you can visit the conservatory or zoo while you’re there!
  • Harriet Island: An expansive park located along the Mississippi River in St Paul.
  • Gold Medal Park: Conveniently located park in Minneapolis nearby the Saturday farmer’s market, a museum, and breweries.
  • Lyndale Park Gardens: A garden filled with colorful flowers (perfect for a bachelorette photo opp) located in Minneapolis near Lake Harriet.
  • Theodore Wirth Regional Park: Outside of the city, this 750+ acre park provides plenty of space for your picnic as well as a short hike or a game of frisbee.
  • Father Hennepin Bluff Park: The best of both worlds, this park feels rural with nature trails and space for a riverside picnic but it also has city views and is only a short walk to the bars.

9) Take A Unique Fitness Class with Your Girls

While we totally get it if you just want to eat and drink all weekend, you may want to plan something more upbeat and active to mix things up. Your friends who are used to being in the gym everyday will appreciate a fitness class being mixed into the bachelorette weekend. Plus, you can learn a new skill!

10) Get Outdoorsy: Go Camping & Hiking Along Minnesota’s North Shore

Consider the time of year: if you can plan your bachelorette during summer, you’ll definitely want to spend some time outdoors. Spring is a great season for checking out the local waterfalls and fall is great for colorful leaves in the scenery. Hiking, camping, swimming, picnics, bonfires, and more are all fun ideas for an outdoorsy bachelorette party in northern Minnesota.

I would not recommend going to a gay bar for your bachelorette party unless the bride is queer or a lot of folks in the party are part of that community. Gay bars are spaces for gay and queer folks. Please do not take up space in one of the few spaces meant for this community.

I love the idea of brewery tours, starting with my favorite local brewery a block from my house. What I didn’t realize is that there was a package created for this sort of thing! Thanks for posting!

I love the idea of going up north and spending time out on the water! And then sprinkle in some breweries or cocktail classes and that’s my kind of party!

These are such great ideas. I am not a big drinker so it is fun to do something rather than just going out to a bar..
