Bachelor/ette Parties

 

Have a crew of besties who love outdoor activities? Or at least love seeing mountains from the warm comfort of a ski chalet? Look no further than Aspen as a destination for your bachelorette in any season. Here’s the breakdown of one bachelorette we planned there in the fall:

 

Where We Stayed

We took advantage of a family friend’s ski house, saving on cost. With a large variety of rentals, this is a great option in the Aspen area.

What We Did

Friday: We arrived at the house. We had a chef come to cook dinner for us upon arrival, so everyone was able to relax right when we got in. Aspen is also chock-full of talented chefs used to cooking for bachelorette-party-sized groups, which meant we could have our pick of options! That night, we headed into town, making stops at popular Aspen bars.

Saturday: After a lazy morning followed by an early afternoon bike ride, we surprised the group with a cake from Aspen’s Main Street Bakery to celebrate one of the bridesmaid’s birthdays. Bachelorette games were played, and then everyone headed out to dinner at L’Hostaria. Then it was bar hopping.

Sunday: Tired from the weekend’s festivities, most of us slept in. After brunch and a short hike, it was time to get back on the road for flights out of Denver.

Places To Go Out

Although we didn’t (quite) make it to all of these, some of the highlights of the Aspen nightlife scene include early drinks at Aspen Brewing Company, followed by popular local bars like 39 Degrees (with a great patio), Zane’s Tavern and the Red Onion (with a happy hour that starts at 10 p.m.), Justice Snow’s and Jimmy’s. J Bar is a fancy saloon for cocktails, which can be followed by dancing at Escobar.

Guide to Castles in Wales

Wales is often an overlooked country because it’s smaller than its neighbors and does not have as many popular landmarks and attractions to pull people in. However, the country is gorgeous and travelers who make the journey will be left breathless by the beauty of the landscape. It’s a green land with rolling hills and quaint towns. Wales is also home to many beautiful castles waiting to be visited.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
