Cadillac, Michigan, is a small town with most of its entertainment venues catering to family fun. Active night life for a frenzied bachelorette party atmosphere is little and far between. No matter what location a bridal party chooses to celebrate, however, members of the party can always personalize their appearance to represent the occasion. Bachelorette party goers can specialize their activities at any time or place by wearing their own party favors, like a sash for the bride-to-be, tiaras and bridesmaid buttons.
Cadillac Sands Resort
The Cadillac Sands Resort (cadillacsands.com) offers two bachelorette party options. The resort employs hospitality experts who are willing to work with party hosts to realize their wishes for the perfect private bachelorette party. Parties can have all decorations supplied and food catered by the resort in a private room according to specifications. The other option is to plan a night of dancing with your friends at the resort's Sand Bar Club. Club nights are Thursday through Saturday and dancing continues until 2 a.m. Thursdays are designated country music nights and country dance lessons are also offered on those nights. Fridays and Saturdays offer a more diverse music mix of rock and pop.
Level Three Lounge
A young bachelorette and her friends from Cadillac may have been to the Sand Bar Club one too many times and want to party somewhere different to make the occasion special. Williamsburg's Turtle Creek Casino (turtlecreekcasino.com) is 40 minutes north of Cadillac, and within the casino is the Level Three Lounge. After an evening of gambling, a bachelorette group can continue the festivities in the lounge, which is open until 2 a.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Each night, the lounge features a deejay spinning music, and on Saturdays there is also live entertainment that may be enjoyed from an outdoor patio.
Caberfae Peaks Ski and Golf Resort
If the soon-to-be bride and her friends are not hard-partying types, they may enjoy a more subdued celebration on a day trip to Cadillac's Caberfae Peaks Ski and Golf Resort (caberfaepeaks.com). Groups of up to 15 may rent accommodations and amenities such as ski lift tickets, lessons, meals and equipment for a memorable outing. In addition, bachelorette party groups may reserve a trip for the resort's designated "Ladies' Day," when food and drink specials are offered at both the lodge and on-site pub.
Nails and Dining
A Cadillac bachelorette and her well-wishing party can celebrate in a manner that allows them to talk, share memories and enjoy an entire day together in a relaxing and fulfilling way. Cadillac offers quite a few options that a diligent host can use to create the perfect itinerary. For instance, the ladies can begin by getting manicures and pedicures at Rose's Nails (no website; 1929 N. Mitchell St. Cadillac; 231-775-6107) in Cadillac's north end. Then follow this up with frozen treats and snacks at Cadillac Java and Ice Cream (no website; 725 N. Mitchell St. Cadillac; 231-779-1411) downtown. Catching a movie at the Cadillac 5 Goodrich Quality Theater (gqti.com) may be a nice way to end the day.
