Weddings / Bachelor/ette Parties

Bachelor parties, known as stag parties in New Zealand, are often the highlight of getting married. Well, they’re not as great as actually walking down the aisle to your bride, but they’re pretty close. If you’re going to throw one in New Zealand, there’s no better place to go than Auckland.


This metropolitan city is teeming with fun things to see and do and, of course, plenty of places to let loose. Since it’s a harbor city, you’ll definitely want to look into renting a boat for a short cruise along the bay. The Auckland Harbor is home to many mostly affordable stag party boat companies happy to lend a hand and some ideas.


Party buses are also a popular choice in this city and can be had for around $1,000 if you’ve got some extra cash to spend. You’ll have free run of the city and plenty of liquor to drown in during the ride.


Before your evening comes to an end, you’ll likely want to take in a little adult entertainment, as men are wont to do, and there are ample opportunities for that around town, too. The Mermaid Club is one of the most popular gentlemen’s clubs in the city, but you also can’t go wrong taking a peek in The White House.


Whatever you’re game for on your final day of freedom, you’re bound to find it in Auckland. Be warned, though, this is probably the most expensive city in New Zealand so you’re going to want to set aside from serious cash if you want to have a good time.

Pacing Yourself at a Beer Festival

Listen, everyone has had a point where they should have paced themselves a little better during a night of drinking. Beer festivals seem a prime example for the importance of pacing. When there is as much beer as you can drink, it is important to take a step back and evaluate the situation, event, crowd and your company.

American Airlines (PHL–NAS)

I recently flew American Airlines to the Bahamas for a bachelorette party. I have flown the airline many times, though I am not used to flying in a large group.

If you’re traveling and hate lugging around a bag when you’re on the go, whether because you hate having to keep an eye on it constantly or you just want both hands free to take photos —whatever the case may be — you’re going to want another way to carry around the bare essentials.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
