Happy Monday, dollies! I hope everybody had the best weekend, I know I did! My besties planned the ultimate bachelorette weekend in the best bachelorette location: Palm Springs, CA. I am so not a Vegas gal and Palm Springs is just under two hours away from my hometown so it was kind of the perfect destination for us. If you are looking for a fun yet low-key bachelorette weekend, Palm Springs should be your place to go!
I really love Palm Springs because there are so many amazing restaurants, trendy hotels and Airbnbs, and best of all: you can make it as chill as you want. We woke up late, had amazing brunches, laid out by the pool, and just had a great time. Check out my favorite places in Palm Springs that are guaranteed to make your bachelorette weekend the one all of your friends talk about for years to come!
WHERE TO STAY:
Known for it's bright colors and pool parties,The Saguaro was our hotel of choice! It just has that really cool mid-century modern vibe that Palm Springs is famous for and it was the obvious choice for us. Plus, rooms and suites are on the affordable price side and the restaurant El Jefe is seriously to die for (order the friend chicken sandwich... you will not regret it).

If you are looking for a seriously low-key vibe, check out The Parker. Unlike The Saguaro, The Parker is not known for bright colors and pool parties but rather eclectic and slightly boho decor and relaxing spa.
WHERE TO eat:
If you want something outdoors with killer cocktails, look no further than Birba. We went really early and had some amazing cocktails. The seven of us shared three salads and four pizzas that were absolutely incredible. The best pizza in my opinion was definitely the Birba pizza: red pepper flakes, mozzarella, prosciutto, and honey. The sweet and spicy was something amazing! To top it all off, I am a firm believer that ambiance can make or break a restaurant, and Birba definitely gets it right.

The first night, we ate at El Jefe at The Saguaro and had the best time! Every single person got something amazing; fried chicken sandwiches, cucumber salads, fish tacos, the list was endless! And to top it all off, we had some incredible cocktails (and tequila shots. RIP to me).
