While a Jersey Shore bachelorette party might bring to mind images of Snooki and her crew, there’s much more to this oceanside stretch than MTV shenanigans. Spend your Jersey Shore bachelorette party exploring its famous boardwalks and beaches, with no shortage of nightlight fun to celebrate your last single days. After you’ve uncovered the Jersey Shore's hidden gems, you’ll leave with the true Jersey girl experience.

There’s no denying a Jersey Shore bachelorette party is guaranteed to be a good time with your bridal squad.

What to Do

The trick to an amazing Jersey Shore bachelorette party is finding the right beach town for your crew to call home base. Whether you prefer the party scene of Wildwood, the old-world charm of Cape May, the glitzy casino scene of Atlantic City—or anywhere in between—you’ll find it right here.

Once you’ve established which part of the shore you’ll stay, take some time to explore the famous boardwalks filled with eats, shops, and amusements. With its Instagram-able murals and trendy food trucks, Asbury Park Boardwalk is a hipster’s paradise while Morey’s Piers is perfect for thrill-seekers with 100+ rides and attractions to keep you entertained.

After some time spent perusing, make your way to the beach and get that Jersey sun-kissed glow. While it’s highly debated which Jersey Shore beach is the very best, you can’t go wrong with favorites like Asbury Park, Ocean City, Belmar, Point Pleasant and Cape May.

Nightlife is the main attraction of any Jersey Shore bachelorette party, and with so many options to choose from, you’ll never be far from the action. Atlantic City is an obvious choice for its endless casinos and famous nightclubs, along with the high-end shopping and dining options set along the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Stop in at Caesars Atlantic City for their 2,000 slot casino, or try the Golden Nugget Atlantic City for ample gambling adventures.

Prefer a slower pace away from the party scene? Cape May is the Jersey Shore locale for you. You’ll find stunning Victorian homes, the historic Cape May Lighthouse, and a must-visit beach. Along with its inherent charm, this coastal gem is home to several wineries like the Cape May Winery and Willow Creek Winery, which even offers bachelorette party specials.

Where to Eat

Your Jersey Shore bachelorette party might be packed with beach time, but you’ll also need fuel for all your girls weekend adventures. Luckily, you’ll find so many delicious eats no matter which seaside cluster you settle in.  

The ever-popular Playa Bowls can be found in multiple locations along the shoreline, serving up healthy yet totally tasty combinations of acai, chia, coconut, and the like. But if you’re looking to satisfy that sugar craving with the most indulgent ice cream, you’ll find exactly that at favorites like Coney Waffle, Hoffman’s, Cookman Creamery, and Strollo’s Lighthouse.

When it’s time for dinner with the girls, you’ll have your pick of eateries catering to every atmosphere and price point. Try Porta in Asbury Park for Italian cuisine in a trendy scene or stop by the Parker House in Sea Grit for what’s often called the quintessential Jersey Shore experience.

If you’re in Atlantic City, snag a table at Dock’s Oyster House for the freshest seafood, or The Continental a fabulous brunch.

Where to Stay

Cited as one of the coolest places to stay on the Jersey Shore, The Asbury has an eclectic vibe that can’t be matched. Book a room and take advantage of their rooftop lounge, outdoor movie theater, and VW Bus poolside bar.

In Long Branch, you’ll find the Bungalow Hotel known for its modern vibe and artful decor. While there are so many things to love about this boutique property, the location is unparalleled at just 350 feet from the beachfront boardwalk.

Ocean Club Hotel is a stylish spot for any Jersey Shore bachelorette party set in Cape May. Your ladies will love the ocean views and poolside tiki bar. Or, check out The Grand Hotel Cape May for a beautiful property directly across from the beach.
