The Enigma of Daytime Bachelor Party Activities


As most of you know the evening festivities for a bachelor party are already pre-determined. They usually involve some combination of limos, nightclubs, and gentlemen's clubs. But, the difficult question that always remains is: what are we going to do during the day? There are a plethora of options for the guys to choose from and I am sure this list will help:

Golfing

Can you think of a more fitting way to spend the daylight hours of a bachelor party? Picture this: a gloriously sunny day with manicured fairways, freshly raked bunkers, and the sounds of that 300 yard drive and that 10 foot putt for birdie. And who could forget, the beer cart girls! Hit the links and then the 19th hole with all the boys. Make the day more interesting by having a 'best ball' tournament with the losers on beer duty for the night. Enjoy a day of good laughs, cold beers, and get a tan while you are doing it. A round of golf is definitely a great way to prime up for a huge evening.

Paintball

What could be better than hitting your good friend with a paint bullet where the sun don't shine? Paintball is another great day time activity to get things fired up and to have some full-contact fun. Here is your opportunity to finally be the sniper you always wanted to be. A few words of advice though ? Don't forget your jock.

Bungee Jumping

Well, your buddy is making the big leap leaving the single life behind. You can always tell him that this adventure is symbolic of his impending marriage. Are you ready for the experience of a lifetime? Your adrenaline will pump through your body like a cascading waterfall. The wind will rush against your face as gravity flings you towards the earth. Well, if this sounds like the adventure you guys are looking for, incorporate some bungee jumping into your bachelor party planning.

Car Racing

Ah yes, the smell of burning rubber and gasoline (not together of course). Nothing will get your heart rate up faster than ripping around a track in a professional race car. This is an experience the boys will never forget. We will even go out on a limb and say that the guys will cherish this memory more than "Candy, Destiny, and Jenna" from the Gentlemen's club. Well, maybe not - but at least you can take pictures of this memory.

Fishing

A day at sea with the boys: fresh air, calm waters, cold brew, your good buddies, and a pond full of fish ? let the good times roar. There are plenty of great fishing locations in Canada and the US that would provide the perfect backdrop for your bachelor party plans. And the soon-to-be-wife would definitely appreciate that this trip won't include any strippers (well, on the boat at least).

Gambling

Jackpot! Casinos' are always hot spots for bachelor parties. Whether it is 3AM in the morning or 4PM in the afternoon, you are sure to feel the excitement in a casino. Flashing lights, plenty of beverages, beautiful women and gambling ? how can you go wrong? Let 'em ride!

Sporting Events

There is no better night out than one that starts with a sporting event. Whether it is the NBA, MLB, NFL, NHL or NCAA, the guys are sure to enjoy a chance to cheer on the home team. Party with 20,000+ people, enjoy watching some talented athletes (the cheerleaders) and down a real man's meal (beer, hotdogs and nachos). And lucky for you, most stadiums are just stumbling distance from the local bars and clubs.

As you can see, the options are endless. So, get the plans together, round up the troops, and get the day started off right!
