Wondering how to plan the perfect day or weekend in Syracuse for your bachelor(ette) party? Whether you want to be pampered, check out downtown, go hiking, or have a garden party, keep reading for ideas on what to do!



Explore Downtown

Check out Oh My Darling's Lemon Ricotta Pancakes or Original Grain for their smoothie bowls. Spend time exploring the downtown area, and pop into a few shops to pick up a new outfit for later in the day or other wedding festivities. Stop into the Cake Bar or The Ice Cream Stand for a sweet treat! Leave time for pampering! Rent out The Emerson's juice bar and raw cafe, Soul Society, for a relaxing day with blowouts, facials, and massages.

Looking for a bit of activity? Enjoy a few drinks with the Syracuse Pedal Tours. You can cycle your way around downtown with up to 13 friends. This would be a great way to get the entire wedding party together too! In the evening get a reservation for Pastabilities to enjoy their delicious Spicy Tomato Oil or Margarita’s Mexican Cantina for classic Mexican fare and margaritas. Head over to The York or Al's Wine and Whiskey Lounge for a bit of nightlife, or check out a show at the Landmark Theatre.



Spend Time Outdoors

Want a day of outdoor activities for you and your crew? Begin with brunch at Brian’s Landing Jamesville before heading to Green Lakes State Park or Clarks Reservation for a hike. Reserve a private Garden Party at Crazy Daisies, or enjoy food and drink on the grounds of their gardens and greenhouses.

Book a guided horseback ride at Rt 80 Quarry Ridge Stables for more adventure or check out Beak & Skiff Apple Orchards to try their ciders, wines, and more in the 1911 Tasting Room. Travel into the city for a classic Italian dinner at Francesca’s Cucina on their patio before catching a show at the St. Joseph’s Health Amphitheater at Lakeview.



Enjoy Skaneateles

Fuel up for your relaxing Skaneateles day with Skaneateles Bakery or brunch at The Krebs. You will appreciate a much-deserved spa day at Mirbeau Inn & Spa, feeling like you've stepped into the French countryside. Want to spend time on the lake? Rent boats, kayaks, canoes, or stand-up paddleboards at Skaneateles Marina.

Continue your weekend with a wine tasting at Anyela’s Vineyards or grab a craft beverage from Skaneateles Brewery. Enjoy dinner at The Elephant and the Dove or Tuscan dining at Rosalie’s Cucina. Looking for more to do? Book a Pottery Decorating Party at Papavero Clay Studio where you can paint your own pre-made pottery to take home!



Create Experiences

You and your friends will be able to celebrate at a location of your choosing. Add food, bring your own, or go a step further and hire a personal chef!
