Whether you’re planning an epic outdoor adventure, a once-in-a-lifetime sporting event, the ultimate guys’ weekend, or just a fun night out with friends, we have some innovative ideas for you to consider. All of these options are fantastic ways to have a good time! 

Discuss with the groom about what he has in mind, and then select one of these activities that you are confident he will enjoy. Whether you want to commemorate your best friend in the traditional way or by organizing an amazing weekend, you can be confident that you will have a fantastic time with a fantastic group of guys who are commemorating your best friend. 

1. Arrange for an Extreme Weekend 

If the groom enjoys an intense adrenaline rush, throwing him a stag party that includes at least one or two extreme sports may be just what he needs to get his heart racing. Why not cross bungee jumping or skydiving off his bucket list with a group of his best friends? These activities are on almost everyone’s bucket list at some point in their lives. 

If you think having fun means jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, you might want to consider other opportunities that come only once in a lifetime. Conduct some internet research to find locations where you can participate in high ropes obstacle courses, zip-lining, hiking, rock climbing, white water rafting, cave diving, or off-roading on dirt bikes or ATVs. Several companies will plan your entire trip for you; all you have to do is book the trip. They will provide you with all of the necessary equipment, lodging, and food, as well as ensure your safety during your thrilling adventure. 

Vacations of this type are not only certain to become one of the groom’s most treasured memories in the years to come, but you and the other guys will also receive a significant amount of quality time together as you work your way through various exhilarating activities on these types of trips. 

2. Go to a Game with Your Favorite Team 

Are you two big sports fans? Is the bridegroom a fan of any sports teams? One of our favorite stag party ideas is to go to a game as a group if one is being played at the time. You can save money by attending a home game and making plans to socialize either before or after the event to make the outing last all day. 

You can also go all out by planning a weekend trip to see your favorite sports team play in another city. There are dozens of sports travel companies that can help you plan a trip that including your flights, hotel, game tickets, and other interesting extras like stadium tours or VIP seating. 

3. Take a Booze Tour 

If the groom enjoys nothing more than a flavorful local microbrew, a full-bodied glass of red, a smokey scotch, or the perfect Old Fashioned, then use the groom’s love of liquor to plan the most memorable stag party event possible. 

Find opportunities for him to go on tours so that he can gain a better understanding of the spirits he enjoys the most while also doing a lot of tasting. If going from one bar or pub to another is more your style, plan your stops ahead of time, making sure to prioritize the most frequently visited establishments. 

Make sure you have a safe way to get from one place to another by planning your transportation before you leave the house. You could use a ride-sharing service like Lyft or Uber, but you could also consider spending some extra money to hire a party bus, limo, or driver for the evening for you and the guys. No matter how many samples you try along the way, you’ll always have the security of knowing that a car is nearby to take you to your next destination. 

4. Visit Online Casinos 

A stag party is an excellent opportunity to put into action an idea that you and your friends have been discussing for a long time, such as going away for the weekend to play golf. Throw a bachelor party for the future husband-to-be before the wedding. It will hopefully be his one and only, so make it a once-in-a-lifetime experience for him. 

The golf course will be able to accommodate your entire group if you make reservations in advance, and you will be able to make lunch or dinner reservations before or after your round of golf. This is another fantastic option for the groom to consider if he wants to include more than just his closest circle of friends in the celebration. If any members of the groom’s family, the bride’s family, or the bride’s cousins, uncles, or aunts choose to attend, it is not difficult to include everyone in the festivities. 

Determine the course’s difficulty based on the skill level of the players. If you don’t think everyone in your group is up for a full round, consider going to a high-end driving range like TopGolf, where you can practice your swing all day and have access to a restaurant and bar with full service. 

5. Set out on a Water Adventure 

If the groom enjoys being outside in the warm weather and basking in the sun’s rays, you should consider throwing him a stag party that includes some water-based activities. 

Charter a luxurious yacht and have a professional captain take you on a tour of the surrounding area to live like a celebrity for a day and night. Inquire about food and beverage packages, or ask each guy to bring their favorite high-end bottle of wine or champagne. Alternatively, you could choose option 1. Then, to commemorate this momentous occasion, throw a swanky party. 

You could also ask everyone in the group to contribute to the cost of renting a house on a lake or the beach for a long weekend so you can kick back, relax, and work on your tan. This is an additional possibility. 

Look for locations where you can rent jet skis or boats, wakeboard, water ski, paddleboard, or tube, and ride the waves on a tube or paddle board. Consider going on a guided white water rafting excursion through the rapids for an unforgettable experience. This will make your trip even more exciting. Make a point of purchasing a commemorative photograph for him to keep as a memento for many years to come. 

6. Rent a Fishing Boat for a Day 

Hiring a fishing boat for the day or weekend is another activity that can be done on the sea and is one of our top picks for stag party ideas. The captain will be familiar with all of the best places to catch fish and will be able to inform you of what is available during each season. Before you leave, you must determine whether or not you require a permit. When you return to shore at the end of the day, you will not only have had a good time reeling in your catches while sipping beer in the warm sun, but you will also have a meal that was both fresh and delicious. Even if you and your companion are not experienced anglers, an experienced captain will have all of the necessary equipment and knowledge to make your day on the water productive. 

7. Rent out a recreational vehicle 

The idea of a raucous group of guys embarking on a road trip appeals to film producers for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that they know the audience will enjoy it. You probably don’t want to be in the same situation as the characters in The Hangover, but you can recreate their hilarious enchantment by taking a road trip with the guys. 

Rent a recreational vehicle (RV) and travel to a location that the groom believes will be enjoyable. You can go with something traditional, like the Grand Canyon or Las Vegas, or you can go with something unique, like Branson or Atlantic City. You could also plan a scavenger hunt-style trip, stopping at any location that claims to be the “world’s greatest” or to have the “world’s largest” of something and then just go with the flow and see where the open road takes you. 

Always bring food with you and designate someone to drive at all times. Because most high-end campers come equipped with everything you need to survive, such as electricity, a bed, a washroom, and a kitchen, you can go wherever your heart desires as long as you remember to keep the tank full. This gives you more freedom to travel than ever before. 

8. Carefully Curated Driving Adventures 

If the groom is a car enthusiast, attending a race or other type of racing event may be his idea of the ideal bachelor party. There are hundreds of different options available, ranging from low-key activities that transport you back to your childhood, such as go-karting, to high-end thrills, such as driving a Ferrari. 

Here are some ideas that might make you want to pull your hair back: 

  • Four-wheel NASCAR driving experience 
  • Dune Go Karting Supercar experience driving a Jeep 4×4 while bugging on a mud track 
  • Take advantage of the Autobahn while you can. 
  • Motocross 
  • Ride a Harley-Davidson 

Consider your financial constraints as well as the resources available in your area before moving on to the next stage of the planning process. 

9. Enjoy a Relaxing Mountain Ride 

If you’re planning a winter stag party, going skiing for the weekend is a fantastic option to consider. There are numerous resorts to choose from, and all of them offer slopes of varying difficulty as well as rental equipment. Even the most inexperienced members of your team will enjoy cutting through the fresh powder, and at the end of the day, you can warm up with bourbon by the fire. Even better, many resorts offer group rates and may offer packages that include fun extras like a whiskey tasting or snowboarding instruction. 

10. Bring the Call of Duty series to life

Is the groom a video game enthusiast in his spare time? Then why not bring those RPGs to life and gather the men for a paintballing adventure? Go to a shooting range, where they will outfit you in soldier-like gear, give you a firearm, ammunition, and safety equipment, and then let you loose on the course. Not only will triumphing over the “enemy” be exciting, but it will also help the groom release some of the pent-up tension that may have developed as a result of the stress of wedding preparations. 

11. Take a riverboat cruise 

Riverboats may appear archaic or like a tourist trap to you, but if you go on one with your friends, you’ll have a great time. Look for alternatives that have amenities that make them ideal for a stag party, such as a full bar, a restaurant, or gaming below deck, so you can spend the night hanging out with the guys in comfort and luxury. 

12. Make a weekend trip to the log cabin

If everyone in your group enjoys being outside, you should think about splitting the cost of renting a cabin for the weekend so you can all hang out together. While camping in the great outdoors, grow your facial hair, crack some beers, and form bonds with your companions. 

If you want to go hunting, fishing, four-wheeling, or participate in any other activity while you’re there, make sure you have the necessary equipment. Bring something to eat, drink, and snack on, such as the ingredients for s’mores over the campfire. Make it a priority to find a place to stay that is appropriate for the climatic conditions that will prevail during the time of year that you will be there. If you’re going camping in the north during the winter, look for cabins that have heat or fireplaces so that your group can stay warm if it gets cold at night. The range of modern conveniences available in rental cabins these days may surprise you, thanks to the rise of the “glamping” craze. Aside from the fact that many of them have central heating, you may be able to rent ones with hot tubs, pool tables, indoor movie theaters, and other amenities. 

13. Win a Lot of Money at a Casino 

If the groom enjoys gambling, a weekend-long stag party at a casino would be the ideal stag party for him. You could go the traditional route and go to Las Vegas, where you can eat, drink, and have a good time while playing any game your heart desires. You might also consider visiting many other locations that have opulent resorts and casinos. 

The United States of America is home to some of the most opulent casinos in the world, which can be found almost anywhere from Florida to New Jersey, California to Iowa, and almost anywhere in between. If you are traveling with a large group, call ahead to see if you can get a lower accommodation rate or additional enhancements added to your package to make the weekend extra memorable. 

14. Let Your Hair Down at a Local Comedy Club 

Is your best friend someone who likes to laugh? Then going to a comedy show might be the best way to spend a night out with the guys while also having a hilariously great time. If he has a favorite comedian, you should look into whether or not that comedian is currently on tour and whether or not they have any upcoming appearances. Some of the most well-known establishments have permanent locations in cities such as Las Vegas, while others frequently visit local clubs to publicize upcoming deals and discounts. 

You could even visit a comedy club known as a destination to see acts that were first performed there before they became famous. The Second City or the iO Theater in Chicago frequently welcomes famous guests; the LA Improv is well-known for being a favorite of celebrities, and Carolines on Broadway is an excellent location for spotting celebrities who are not dressed up. There are also hundreds of local comedy clubs that feature up-and-coming performers who will have you laughing until your face hurts, and there is no minimum number of drinks required to enter these establishments. 

15. Plan a Scavenger Hunt 

Certain weddings do not start with a group of guys who are all close friends with one another. If you’re in charge of organizing a stag party for a group of people who aren’t particularly close, starting the festivities with a game or activity that is both enjoyable and has the potential to break the ice is a great way to get everyone to start bonding before the big day. Treasure hunts and scavenger hunts are two types of activities that the groom and his friends will enjoy organizing and personalizing. You have the option of doing the event planning on your own or working with a company that will assist you. You should intersperse trivia questions with different locales and difficulties to get everyone from point A to point B. You’ll be able to get everyone in the group working together, which will boost morale and give them an incredible opportunity to experience exceptional collaboration. 

16. Participate in an Escape Room 

If you like the idea of working together and using your critical thinking skills but don’t want to run all over town, you can go to an escape room as a group. You can explore the options in your immediate vicinity, or you can travel a little further afield to see one of the world’s top escape rooms, which features incredibly in-depth narratives, realistic props, and riddles that are nearly impossible to solve. Is this your first time using an escape room? Here is the information you need. These are intended to simulate real-life experiences, and the majority of them have a time limit of about one hour. The players are all confined in a room together, and to complete the task and find a way out, you must solve a series of puzzles scattered throughout the room. 

You must make reservations with the venue ahead of time. To ensure that there will be enough space for the stag party, you should inquire about the maximum number of guests permitted to attend. The level of difficulty of the room will be rated in many establishments. If you are a novice group, you should look for more straightforward solutions to increase your chances of success. You could also choose a difficult chamber if you and your friends want to see if you and your friends have what it takes to escape the room in the allotted time. 

17. Get on Four Wheels and Ride! 

You could take a road trip in an RV, which is bound to be enjoyable, or you could take a less traveled route. Consider taking a motorcycle tour during a time of year when the weather is especially nice, so you can enjoy the wide open roads, breathtaking scenery, and the sensation of feeling every inch of the pavement along the way. Several companies offer charter services and logistical support for long-distance trips across the United States that can range from a three-day weekend to an entire calendar month. They will rent you bicycles, transport your luggage and other belongings, and provide maintenance services along the route to make your trip as risk-free as possible. 

You may need to attend a training course before you leave to rent and ride a motorcycle. Conduct the necessary research, keeping in mind that completing one of these will cost you around $150 and will take some time. As the best man, it is your responsibility to ensure that everyone attending the wedding meets this requirement before the time you are expected to leave. 

18. Attend a gentlemen’s club and dance with someone

Some guys don’t want to go to a strip club for their bachelor party, but if your best friend is one of them, there’s nothing wrong with it. If the groom-to- be thinks it’s okay for him to spend his last night as a single man gawking at gorgeous women naked, then make it a memorable and enjoyable experience for him. It is best not to bring strippers into a hotel room or any other off-site location where things could get out of hand. Instead, go to a classy gentlemen’s club and pay the extra money for VIP access. This could include better seating, a more secluded setting, bottle service, or any number of other luxuries that will make the groom’s night even more memorable. Be a great best man and make sure everyone puts their cameras away — even if he’s acting appropriately, there’s no reason to photograph any of the shenanigans that occurred. Also, keep an eye on the groom to ensure that he is having a good time but not engaging in any behavior that he will regret the next morning. If things start to get out of hand, it’s time to call it quits and move the party to a different location. As the person in charge of organizing the event, it is your responsibility to be alert enough to make a decision and evacuate everyone before things get out of hand. 

Make certain that whatever you do is remembered

Remember that the most important aspect of throwing a stag party is to provide the groom with a night or weekend full of incredible memories with his closest friends, and it doesn’t matter which of these stag party ideas is best for your group because that is the most important aspect. His life is about to change, and he is counting on you to help him make a smooth transition into married life. His life is about to change, even though you will always be like brothers. You can do it in a truly unique way by picking one of these ideas, adding some careful planning and organization, and putting it all together.
