Planning a bachelorette party doesn't always require airplane tickets, overnight trips and spending a ton of money to celebrate. A day trip in honor of the bride to be can happen right on Long Island. Plan a Nashville-inspired night out on Main Street, book a spa day or spend an afternoon at the winery — there is plenty to do and fun to be had without breaking the bank.

Night out on Main Street

Long Island has plenty of popular hubs packed with bars, restaurants and nightlife.

In Suffolk County, Huntington, Patchogue, Babylon and Port Jefferson are perfect for a night on the town. As for Nassau County, check out Long Beach, Rockville Centre and Farmingdale.

All of these Main Streets are within a short distance of their Long Island Rail Road stations, for any bridal party members traveling from out of town. With some party favors and a barhopping plan, this bachelorette celebration will last all night — and if you’re staying in town, there are plenty of brunch options in these communities for the following morning.

The co-owners are also developing a bachelorette package, where groups can receive cowboy hats, sunglasses and bandannas.

Spa day

Why not pick a spa package, so that your bridal party can relax together before the big wedding day?

Anoz Spa Boutique in Garden City can host parties on site or come to your gathering for group spa experiences. For private parties at the boutique (which can be hosted on a Sunday, Monday or Wednesday), guests can opt for a 30 minute massage, facial or both. The spa can host between 8 and 15 people, with a $100 minimum per person. They offer karaoke (with a $100 fee) and photography as add-ons. Therapists can also be hired at an hourly rate and travel to you for massages, which would be $85 each.
