Ask anybody what city is the number one location for bachelor and bachelorette parties in the world and the number one guess would likely be Las Vegas — and that guess would be 100% correct. But what’s the number two destination for people looking for a final night of partying before tying the knot? You’ll never guess.
Miami? No, Miami’s South Beach is #3. New York City? No, Manhattan is # 7. How about New Orleans? Sorry, #6.
The #2 destination for bachelor parties is Montreal.
I found this information at EventForte, a website that is essentially an event and party planner. Some of the other interesting data culled from a survey of more than 300 thousand married men and women aged 21-35:
45% of bachelor parties involve exotic dancers for entertainment, but only 18% of bachelorette parties involve exotic dancers. No surprise there.
But get this: Only 1.2% of men who have had a bachelor party say they ended up having a one night stand with their “entertainment.” But 2.6% of women who have been treated to a bachelorette party admit they’ve had a one night stand with their entertainment!
So, although bachelorettes are less likely than bachelors to have exotic dancers at their parties, the girls are more than twice as likely to sample the merchandise!
There’s a lot more data about bachelor and bachelorette parties available at the link above. If you’re specifically planning a bachelor party in Vegas, see TVO’s post on Vegas strip club bachelor parties.
