Looking to have a weekend bachelorette party with your girls that doesn't involve strippers twerking inches from your face in leopard print thongs or bottle service at an expensive Las Vegas club? You don't have to go the party girl route if that's not your style. Instead, here are six alternative bachelorette party ideas that don't involve getting drunk.

1. Do a Scavenger Hunt

Sign up for a local scavenger hunt around your city and you can compete with other teams. An activity like this requires everyone to channel their competitive spirit and also lace up their running shoes.

2. Channel Your Favorite Childhood Activity

Whether you loved crafting or you had a strong passion for singing every song on the Spice Girl's albums, think of your favorite childhood activity and plan a bachelorette party day or weekend around that theme.

3. Rent Out a Beach House

Go with something chill and book a beach house for the weekend. You can let you and your friends relax on lounge chairs and even stir up some virgin piña coladas.

4. Go the Active Route

If you're feeling sporty or want to sneak in extra sweat sesh before the wedding, you can have everyone head to a workout class or hire an instructor to give you and your friends a private Zumba or Yoga class.

5. Pick Food Over Wine

Go on a food tour or plan a biking adventure where you stop every hour and have a bite at a fun place to eat. You'll incorporate both an active and a foodie side of yourself and your guests with this activity.

6. Check Into a Spa

Toss your hands up in the air and stop planning every detail of your bachelorette party and go with a spa weekend. This way everyone is forced to channel their inner calm, cool, and collective side and you don't have to worry about any drunken blunders or drama.
