Let’s Go Girls! We’ve Planned an Epic Bachelorette Weekend in Newport Beach
Planning a weekend with your “I do” crew? Newport Beach is the destination for an epic weekend with your girls! Our coastal city is home to a host of places to dine, shop, explore and soak up the SoCal sun. From cruising around town in a pink moke to enjoying a curated picnic on the sand, you’ll never run out of things to do! Here’s the perfect itinerary for a fun-filled bachelorette weekend in Newport Beach.
Stay in a Lido House Cottage
Enjoy a modern beach house experience in one of Lido House’s five coastal cottages! Each one was masterfully designed to embody the “barefoot luxury” vibe of Newport Beach. Enjoy personal services such as curated shopping experiences and in-cottage spa treatments; you’ll also have access to hotel amenities like the pool, on-site restaurant The Mayor’s Table, the Lido Limo shuttle service and more. This is the place to stay for a pre-wedding vacay!
Plan a Beach Picnic
With Newport’s soft sand and gentle sea breeze, there’s no better place for a beach picnic. Head down the Balboa Peninsula to The Wedge or venture to Pirate’s Cove in Corona del Mar. And if you don’t feel like setting everything up yourself, let The Picnic Collective do it for you! These local picnic pros offer a variety of picnic experiences; all you have to do is choose the date, time and location. It doesn’t get easier than that!
Rent a Moke and Zip Around Town
Cruise the streets in style by renting your very own electric moke! These charming electric cars resemble retro golf carts and come in a variety of colors. They can reach a top speed of 25 mph and are even street legal! Reserve yours by visiting www.newportbeachmoke.com and get ready to zip around town with ease—don’t forget to snap some pics!
Every first Sunday of the month, Newport Beach Vineyards & Winery hosts a luncheon with their wine goats, Winnie and Evie. That’s right—you and your crew can sip vino and feed goats! The luncheon includes four drink tickets for wine or champagne, artisanal snacks and a tour of the vineyards, botanical gardens, koi ponds and bird aviary.
Set Sail on the Bay
For a cruise around the bay at golden hour, check out The Boat People Cruise—a charming sailboat that roams Newport Harbor. Started by a couple who shares a love for the sea, this sailing excursion is the perfect way to get out on the water with your girls. And if you’re looking to keep the party rolling, pull up dockside to Billy’s at the Beach for a round of their world-famous mai tais.
Shop til’ You Drop at Lido Marina Village
Brides! Treat your posse to a summer souvenir from Stoney Clover Lane. This colorful shop in Lido Marina Village is chock-full of accessories like tote bags, fanny packs, wallets and more. The best part? You can customize any item! Get your girls matching, customized accessories—the perfect way to remember the weekend.
Dine + Drink at Malibu Farm
There’s nothing more we love than an evening with our best friends and some waterfront dining. So after you’ve picked out your accessories from Stoney Clover, walk over to Malibu Farm for an alfresco dinner by the bay. Sip hand-crafted cocktails and snack on dishes like crab cakes, burrata salad and grilled octopus as you watch the boats cruise by.
