Axe Throwing

One of the latest trends on the scene is axe throwing. You can rent an area for a block of time & get taught on how to throw axes. Then you practice on your own.

One of the great things about this, is that it’s usually BYOF. Bring your own food. Which means in between lessons (or competition) you can mix & mingle.

Rent A ATV

Get outside & get dirty by riding off-road. Gather a group of guys together & rent some ATV’s or dirt bikes. Most rental companies will have suggestions of where to ride or even their own track for you to ride.

Food Hop

You may not be interested in a bar hop but that doesn’t mean you need to miss out on food.

Create a lineup of the restaurants in the area that you want to try. It could be,

  • Unique restaurants
  • Diners & dives
  • Extravagant restaurants
  • Bakeries
  • Taco places

Then for bachelor party day you can eat something from each place.

Whatever you decide to do, make sure it fits the groom’s personality.
