Folks often take the long drive into Houston, Tyler or Dallas for their bachelorette party or fly to Las Vegas to experience 'Sin City.'  Well, you can save the gas money, because we’re giving you five fun places to party right here in Lufkin-Nacogdoches based on your bachelorette party theme.

1. Relaxing Party

Not a big drinker? Don't worry - your bachelorette party doesn't have to involve crazy, sloppy drunks. Many women prefer having a girl's day-out type of party, which includes getting pampered and relaxing with some of your best girlfriends.

Lufkin and Nacogdoches offer many salons and day spas with features like manicures, pedicures, massages, facials and body scrubs. Expressive Images, Maricela's Day Spa, Absolute WellnessMassage Therapy and Om Shanti Massage Studio are some of our favorite spa places.

2. Party Girls

Looking for somewhere to party hard for the night with your bachelorette party entourage? Why not go bar hopping in Nacogdoches? Start out at Nine Flags at the Hotel Fredonia, then hit Flashback's, Bullfrog's, Anex, and end at the Sports Shack. Try doing a challenge at each destination and see who can last the longest that night!

3. Music Lovers

For the people who absolutely love going to concerts and having a good time, there's always something going on at Banita Creek Hall. You can view the monthly event calendar on their website to see who'll be playing in town during your bachelorette party. Grab all of your girlfriends and head on down to Banita Creek Hall in Nacogdoches for drinks, dancing and an awesome live band! Also, check out the Kicks 105 events calendar to see if there's a show or concert coming to your town.

4. Cruise Around In Style

Don't worry about finding designated drivers or fitting your whole party into one vehicle - let do all the work! You can cruise around east Texas with up to 50 friends and choose a variety of limos based on the look and the price you're looking for.

5. Themed Party

Why not make great memories with a fun theme party? With thousands of ideas to choose from, start off the party with some fun themed games at your home or friend's pad, then head on over somewhere to eat based on your theme - like Tokyo Japanese Seafood and Steakhouse in Lufkin or Asian City in Nacogdoches if you're having an oriental theme, or Casa Ole or Casa Thomas for a Mexican theme. This can be as expensive or as inexpensive as you'd like, so decorate accordingly. You can also host a passion party which is fun to do with some of your closest girlfriends.
