If you love the idea of an outdoorsy bachelorette party, but relaxing on the water is about as active as you want to get, then book a weekend getaway on a rented houseboat. Forever Houseboats offers a range of sizes, from 44-foot boats ideal for up to four people to 70-foot boats that can sleep up to twelve pals. The larger models feature amenities like barbecue grills, hot tubs, fully equipped kitchens, and satellite TV. You can spend the day doing water sports (like sliding down the boat's water slide), then hang out with the girls while sipping cocktails on the boat's rooftop deck by night. Locations include lakes in California, Arizona, Missouri, Nevada, and Texas. Minimum rental is three days; head to foreverhouseboats.com to view the 2011 rates. —Lauren Matthews
