For those in the Central Virginia area, there are plenty of options for bachelorette parties in Charlottesville!
Vineyard Hopping & Wine Tours
Nestled in the beautiful Virginia wine country, Charlottesville offers many vineyards to explore! If you have a decent-sized group of people for your bachelorette party, you can book a tour through a service such as Wish Wish Wine Tours or Blue Ridge Wine Excursions. You’ll typically choose a route with 4-5 stops along the way. Bring lots of water and snacks so you stay hydrated and fueled up for a day of vineyard hopping! Not to mention, the wineries around Charlottesville make the perfect backdrop for a photo op, so be sure to take lots of photos to document the special day. If you prefer breweries, cideries, or even distilleries, you can choose to add those to your route instead of just vineyards. By taking a wine tour, nobody has to worry about being a designated driver! Conclude your Charlottesville bachelorette party with dinner and dancing at the Downtown Mall.
