It seems the ladies really do like to party down South, especially in Austin. We top a new list as the hottest destination for bachelorette parties this year.

Thumbtack's rankings were determined by the number of bachelorette party-related requests for each city received by the site. Austin garnered the highest number of requests from bachelorettes looking to let loose before their wedding. And that doesn't just mean pole-dancing lessons; in fact, the most popular activities in Austin might surprise you.

The top five requests for ladies partying in Austin were personal chefs, cooking lessons, bartenders, event catering, and event photography. Researchers shared that food-related requests were also extremely popular in the Capital City, with keywords such as "farm-to-table," "healthy," and "vegetarian" popping up frequently.

Healthy eating was a popular focus for bachelorettes, but that doesn't mean that these ladies weren't also looking to splurge in Austin. More unconventional requests included candy buffet services and tarot card reading.

On a national level, personal chefs and cooking lessons topped the list, followed by party bus rentals, massage therapy, and event makeup.

Other hot destinations for the last fling before the ring were Las Vegas, Chicago, New York, and Miami Beach. To view the full list, head over to Thumbtack.
