Congratulations! You’ve chosen the person you’re going to spend the rest of your life with. And just as exciting, you’ve chosen Nashville as your destination to celebrate that with the other loves of your life - your girlfriends! I know you didn’t just come here for the music. You came here to celebrate the queens in your life. Here at River Queen Voyages Kayaking Outfitters, we want to make sure you accomplish that with the ultimate Girls Getaway Guide.
12th Ave South (known by the locals as “12 south”) is a strip of local Nashville coffee shops, boutiques, and BBQ. Reese Witherspoon’s boutique, Draper James, is “steeped in Southern charm, designed for real life, and unapologetically pretty.” Portland Brew brings coffee of the PNW to the South and frequently has creative locals working there all day. Edley’s BBQ is a local favorite with phenomenal BBQ sauces as well as a plethora of satisfying sides.
Wanna get smashed with your friends but still make sure you fit into your custom made wedding/bridesmaid dress? This is the perfect experience for you! Nashville Pedal Tavern combines drinking games, gorgeous downtown views & exercise (kind of)! You and your friends drink as you pedal down Broadway or historic Music Row while taking breaks for a round of flip cup, or pictures on the Cumberland to commemorate the ride you’ll never remember!
Nashville is a great place to catch some amazing performers. But this weekend is about YOU and your friends, so you deserve the stage! Lonnie’s is a great place to take that stage with songs you’ve always loved to hate like Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Smash Mouth and basically anything you remember grinding to in high school. The place is always filled with patrons excited to scream along, making you feel like the celebrity you truly are.
Are strippers cool? Sure. But what about strippers with tasteful music and custom made boas? Skull’s Rainbow Room is the premiere speakeasy-style bar with late night Burlesque shows several nights a week, to bring some culture and class to your Bachelorette Party classics. Along with a phenomenal show, they have some of the best craft cocktails in the city.
Do you need a break from drinking and want to remember what fresh, alcohol-free air smells like? You can kayak the toxins out of you with River Queen Voyages, Nashville’s local kayaking outfitter. River Queen is a fantastic way to see the nature that Nashville has to offer and take a break to really connect with your friends. You can paddle down the Cumberland River from the woodsy and tranquil Shelby Bottoms, all the way to the scenic Downtown strip. It’s a great way to burn off that Hot Chicken so that you can eat some more.
We’re so happy you decided to bring your Bachelorette Party to Nashville.
Eat well, stay safe, and come back soon!
