Bachelor/ette Parties

Bonding over sports, beers and grub is the classic combination for a bachelor party (okay, maybe it’s missing one typical mainstay!), and the new trend in planning that final getaway for your buddy includes a little adventure.


Consider activities a bit more extreme — it’ll make the walk down the aisle a lot less scary for the groom-to-be. Nowadays, popular bachelor party itineraries include group surfing lessons, sky diving (take the literal plunge!), white-water rafting, race-car driving lessons, deep sea fishing and rock/mountain climbing.


If those adventurous activities are a bit too out there for your groom-to-be, think about making the weekend more low-key. Organize a weekend in a new city to watch your favorite sports team, or take some time to escape to a golf destination and spend a few days hitting the links. If this is a winter excursion, a skiing or snowboarding weekend is always a popular choice. Likewise, a summer wedding lends itself to a beachy bachelor weekend full of waterskiing, wakeboarding and boating. What’s more manly than a weekend in the woods, camping and playing paintball?


There’s a wide range of bachelor party options to get the group into the great outdoors and to do something a bit out of the ordinary — you don’t want the groom getting in trouble with his betrothed. Check out simplythebestman.com for a state-by-state listing of potential activities and vendors.
