Austin Bachelorette Party Ideas

Planning a Bachelorette Party in Austin?

Make sure to include a relaxing float down the beautiful San Marcos river.

When planning a bachelorette party in Austin, TX – you will have no problem finding something to do, somewhere to eat, and somewhere to drink & dance. The trouble becomes…. how can you narrow down the things you MUST do.

With so much warm sun in Central Texas, enjoying fresh air a cool water is one of those musts! For a truly unique and awesome experience – take a tubing trip down the San Marcos river – the closest floating destination to Austin. There are other places to enjoy some water recreation, like Barton Springs & Zilker Park, Lady Bird Lake and of course, some awesome rooftop pools. BUT – nothing compares to floating the river!

Bachelorette River Tubing Trips

Enjoy a 3+ hour float on the closest river to Austin without spending all your party money – we drive, so you can drink! Texas State Tubes can take care of everything when it comes to booking your bachelorette parties’ river float – just bring some drinks, snacks, sun protection and get ready to have fun! We’ll pick you up & provide the floating gear… then you can float the San Marcos River. When you’re done, we’ll take you back. EASY PEASY! We even have two different Tubing trips, or tours, you can take.

A Private Tour can pick the bachelorette party up at your hotel or house. Anywhere that’s about 45 minutes from San Marcos – so that includes Austin, New Braunfels, Wimberly and more.

Our Public Tour option has a pickup spot at 3rd Street & Congress Ave in downtown Austin – plus. no group minimums when booking.


Austin, and Central Texas, has lots and lots of fantastic food options. Obviously you should try some Texas BBQ while you’re in town. If you don’t want to wait in for Franklin’s BBQ, try Terry Blacks, County Line, or enjoy your smoked meats at Rudy’s while taking in some live music.

We also love our tacos & texmex here in Austin! Start your morning off right, with some Torchy’s Tacos, Taco Deli or a corner taco stand. They’re all so good.

It’s Austin, it’s a bachelorette party…. so obvs there should be brunch.

Night Life

There’s Sixth Street, or dirty sixth – the infamous party district of the city. But head a little more west down sixth street and you’ll find yourself in what is called West Sixth, a classier area with lots to see, drink, dance, eat and do. There is also the area around Rainey Street, a newer district with great bars & unique places to eat.

In downtown Austin, there’s live music on almost every block, places to dance, fantastic restaurants and so much to see and do.
