While most bachelor parties often consist of hitting up a bar or visiting a nightclub, there are other options you can try to match your personality and preferences. If you want to skip the standard activities and enjoy a more memorable evening, then checkout these alternative ideas for a fun bachelor party.
Get Box Seats to a Sports Game
You will only get one bachelor party, which is why you should treat yourself to box seats to an upcoming sports game. There is no better way to watch your favorite sports team in action, as you can skip the crowds and watch the game in style with your best friends.For instance, if you want to absorb all the action of an NBA game, then you could rent a four-seat balcony box, which will offer a superb view of the action. What’s more, you and your friends can enjoy complimentary beer, wine, soft drinks and delicious appetizers. That means you won’t need to leave your seat while watching yourmuch-loved team battle it out on the basketball court.
Go on a Camping Trip
If, however, you’re looking for an activity that is a little more outdoorsy, a camping trip could be the perfect option over a traditional bachelor party. You and your friends will have an opportunity to get closer to nature, as you can pitch a tent, build a fire, go hiking and maybe even enjoy a spot of fishing to catch your dinner. Plus, once the sun goes down, you can stare at the stars, share stories and toast to your upcoming marriage with a cold one.
You could even make the experience extra special by booking a camping trip in a stunning destination, such as Yosemite National Park, which offers 13 campgrounds, or Death Valley, which is one of the hottest places on Earth.
Enjoy an Active Experience
If you view yourself as a bit of an adrenaline chaser, then a night of partying will not be enough to get your blood pumping and your heart racing. To ensure the blood courses through your veins, you should organize an active experience or two for you and your friends.
For instance, you could go:
- Bungee jumping
It is, however, important to bear in mind that not all your friends and family members might be willing to push their mind and body to the test, so plan accordingly.
Take a Tour of a Craft Brewery
If you love a good beer or a glass of whiskey, but don’t want to spend your evening drinking copious amounts of alcohol, then a tour around a craft brewery might be an ideal alternative. You and your bachelor party crew can go behind the scenes of a brewery to learn how to make your favorite tipple — and you will even have an opportunity to try a glass or two at the end of the tour.
Play a Game of Poker
If the idea of visiting a nightclub fills you with dread, and you would rather spend a fun evening at home with your friends, then organize an evening of poker instead. Stock up on beers and spirits, grab some snacks and prep the table ready to take your friends’ cash.
Whether it’s Texas Hold ‘em, three-card poker, Chinese poker or Omaha Hi-Lo, there are also numerous poker variations you can play to suit your preference.
Book a Table at a High-End Restaurant
To enjoy an evening of good food, good company and good drinks, skip the nightclubs and book a table at a high-end restaurant. If you appreciate the best things in life, then an evening of scrumptious dishes and drinks could be an ideal way to celebrate the end of single life. You could even make the event extra special by booking a Michelin-starred restaurant for a well and truly unforgettable gastronomic experience.
Enjoy a Day of Fun
Partying hard isn’t for everyone. So, if you want a more laid-back event and wish to spend some quality time with your friends before embarking on married life, then organize a day of nonstop fun. For instance, rather than spending an exorbitant amount of money on nightclub entry and alcohol, put your cash to better use by booking a day of lasertag, bowling, paintballing or go-karting. It will allow you to embrace your competitive side and have a little fun, which is the perfect way to de-stress in between wedding preparations.
Go Rock Climbing
If you and your buddies like to regularly push your body to its limits and embark on fun, rewarding challenges, then consider going rock climbing as an alternative to a traditional bachelor party.
For instance, you could tackle the 110-feet Otter Cliff in Acadia National Park, Maine, or you could test your physical fitness by embarking on the strenuous climbs at The Frankenjura in Bavaria, Germany.
It will beat dancing and drinking at a nightclub, as you will feel a great sense of satisfaction once you reach the top of the rock, which offers unforgettable views. Plus, it is sure to be full of opportunities for male bonding, which could strengthen your friendships prior to saying, “I do.”
Book a Race Car Experience
If, however, you have a need for speed and can appreciate the craftsmanship of a race car, then book a driving experience at a track near you. You will feel the adrenaline coursing through your veins as you burn rubber on the track, and you will also have an opportunity to sit next to a professional race car driver, who will be happy to provide tips to help you improve your driving skills. It is sure to provide you and your friends with a memory of a lifetime, which you will talk about long after your wedding is over.
So, if you want to celebrate the end of single life in an alternative manner, the above options could be the perfect fit for no matter what your personality.
