The months leading up to a wedding can be incredibly stressful for a groom. Between picking out a tux, selecting a bachelor party, and deciding on the countless choices that come with planning a wedding, the process can break even the toughest of men.
Fortunately, there is the always-welcomed bachelor party to distract you from the wedding planning process. Your bachelor party is an opportunity to celebrate your upcoming union and say farewell to life as a single man.
Some of the most popular bachelor party destinations include Las Vegas, Miami, and Nashville. However, many bachelors are deciding to spend their bachelor’s weekend visiting Colorado. Colorado has a lot to offer bachelor parties. From partying in downtown Denver to hiking Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park, there’s something for everyone in Colorado.
Here are four things to do if you’re planning a Colorado bachelor party…
EXPLORE THE OUTDOORS IN BOULDER
Several bachelor party destinations struggle to keep groups occupied during the day – however, that isn’t the case in Boulder, CO. If your group is the outdoors type, then you should consider exploring what Boulder has to offer. You can hike Eldorado Canyon, climb the Flatirons, and bike along the Boulder Creek. After exploring the beautiful scenery, your group can bar-hop on Pearl Street which is home to several popular bars and breweries.
If you want an affordable and charming place to stay while exploring Boulder, find a hotel in Lafayette. Lafayette is only a few miles outside of Boulder and has several accommodating options for big and small groups.
HIT THE SLOPES IN VAIL
Vail is not just a popular city for bachelor parties; it’s one of the most popular travel destinations in the country. Home to arguably the best ski slopes in the state, Vail is the perfect place to spend a bachelor’s weekend – especially if your group loves skiing or snowboarding.
Vail Mountain is the third-largest ski terrain in the country, which provides several options based on your skill level. Practice on the bunny slope if you’ve never skied, or tackle a double black diamond run if you fancy yourself an expert. Your bachelor party will also enjoy Vail Village which is filled with great restaurants and bars.
PARTY IN DENVER
Denver is one of the most popular bachelor party destinations in Colorado. The Mile High City has something for everyone. Groups can see a live concert at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre or watch the Broncos play at the Mile High Stadium. Parties can also bar hop or find great dining options while exploring LoDo (Lower Downtown).
After a long day in downtown, many bachelor parties will want to find a quiet place to unwind. Therefore, you might consider booking a hotel in Highlands Ranch, which is located just south of Denver. This quaint town will help you remedy any hangover and rejuvenate yourself for another night out in Denver.
ENJOY THE VERSATILITY OF SILVERTHORNE
While not one of the first names that come to mind when you think of visiting Colorado, Silverthorne is a city that provides bachelor parties with a fun and affordable alternative to the mainstream destinations. Nestled between multiple mountains and waterways, Silverthorne is a great budget-friendly option for an adventurous bachelor party.
Depending on the time of year, you can fly-fish in the Blue River or play 18-holes at the Raven Golf Course. Parties can also hike or camp along the various mountain trails. Of course, there’s also the options to ski or snowboard, too.
CHOOSE COLORADO FOR YOUR BACHELOR PARTY…
As you can tell, Colorado has several great options for hosting a bachelor’s party. Whether you want to party in Denver or relax in Silverthorne, there is a city to fit your party’s needs.
