Bachelor Party Ideas That Aren’t Las Vegas

TAKE A CROSS-COUNTRY ROAD TRIP.

The United States is lined with some truly epic stretches of highway. Tap into your great American novelist and hit the road with nothing but a solid playlist, a few friends, and no agenda.

 HEAD TO AN UNCONVENTIONAL BACHELOR PARTY DESTINATION.

In the past, most bachelor parties would’ve headed to a city like Amsterdam or Bangkok for some seedy fun. But the new breed of man is all about soaking up the culture, along with excellent eye candy. Consider a destination bachelor party to a place like Mexico City, which might not have the all-inclusive resorts of, say, Cancun, but is packed with fantastic restaurants, history, bars, and nightlife.

 TAKE AN OLD-SCHOOL FISHING TRIP.

Fishing is yet another manly, beardy, flannel-y activity that is great for a chill bachelor party. Head to The Ranch at Rock Creek in Montana, where you can catch, clean, and cook your bounty. Spend the afternoon stalking the bevy of trout that swim through the Sapphire Mountain streams.

 CHASE SOME THRILLS.

For the man who’s always searching for that next shot of adrenaline, take the guys on a weekend getaway for some heart-pumping thrills. Skydiving is the ultimate activity that ends up on bachelor party lists. The U.S. has 300 drop-zones, but Hawaii is a fan favorite. But if airborne isn’t your thing, you can unleash your inner Jacques Cousteau with shark cage diving. Try Snappa Charters in Naragansett, Rhode Island. Some might call you crazy — but that’s kind of the point, isn’t it?

Then again, what’s wrong with Vegas?
