Having a wedding is a wonderful and rare opportunity to bring everyone you love together at one time. Similarly, a bachelor party allows you to bring all of your closest friends together for an exciting and memorable vacation. The first and most important step during this exciting time is picking the destination for your bash.
There are many factors to consider when picking a spot for this pre-wedding party. You’ll have to think about the size of your party, budgets, travel logistics, and which city will be the most exciting.
We understand that the decision can feel overwhelming, so we have put together a list of our 10 favorite bachelor party destinations for adventure seekers.
Enjoy Fun in Vail, CO
Lastly, Vail, Colorado, is a dream destination for a bachelor party. Just two hours from Denver, this location offers summer adventures, gorgeous sights, and more. You will have the trip of a lifetime here.
Activities in Vail
If you are planning to head to Vail for your bachelor party, book a stay with Collective Retreats. During your time at our retreat, you will have access to countless classic Colorado activities that take no time to arrange; simply reach out to our concierge, and they will handle the details for you.
If members of your group are comfortable with a fishing rod, they are most likely to think of Vail as a fly fishing hotspot. Thanks to Colorado’s large network of rivers, steady stream, and consistent temperatures, the fish population is dense here. Not to mention that the views from the water of the Rocky Mountains and foliage are unparalleled.
For a true rush of adrenaline, try your hand at mountain biking. Vail has countless biking trails in the mountains that will excite you and challenge your skills, as well as water sports like kayaking and rafting.
Lastly, if you want to admire the beautiful scenery from a new perspective, book a horseback riding trip. With Collective Retreats, your party can book a private two-hour tour of the entire ranch led by a local expert.
Accommodations for the Groom-to-Be’s Getaway
If your party loves outdoor experiences but doesn’t want to give up the luxuries and amenities of an upscale boutique hotel, Collective Retreats offers the perfect accommodations. The Summit Tent will provide the natural immersion of an outdoor living experience along with the five-star luxuries of a king-size bed, electrical outlets, and an en suite bathroom.
You are steps away from adventures in nature, but you will have a comfortable bed to return to after a long night of revelry.
Get Ready for the Big Day in Miami, Florida
If your friends love to go surfing, eat dinner on the beach, and party all night, Miami is the choice for you. Besides surfing, pool parties, and luxury golf courses, Miami offers plenty more to enjoy.
You and your groomsmen can head to the ocean for deep-sea fishing, a speed boat tour, or snorkeling. After a morning full of ocean adventures, rent a few beach chairs, open a beer or two, and watch the waves crash on the sand. Make sure to keep all this potential in mind during your bachelor party planning.
When the sun sets, be sure to dine on premiere seafood at an ocean-view restaurant before hitting the clubs. Miami is known for its nightlife and has clubbing options for every music preference: electronic, hip-hop, top 40, Latin, and so on.
