Your best buddy is about to close the chapter on his bachelorhood in order to embark on a lifelong journey with his soul mate, but you know there's still unfinished business. You have to plan an unforgettable bachelor party that brings together boys from all walks of his life. Getting drunker than you all should? Check. Debauchery and tomfoolery? Check. Engaging in activities his new partner might not approve of? Check. It goes without saying that a proper send-off of this magnitude involves a little trip away from home. So where to? Take a peek at our list of the 10 of the top weekend getaways for a blowout bachelor bash for inspiration.
1. Las Vegas, Nevada
There simply is no other place that does glitz quite like Vegas, which makes it just the perfect place for a naughty, rowdy bachelor party. Whether it's going all in on a high-stakes Hold'em, lounging at the exclusive TAO Beach, oggling the lusty babes at Sapphire, chowing down a juicy filet at Delmonico, working out your hangover at the Gym at Mandalay, dressing to impress or getting the high roller treatment, the Sin City will attentively cater to each and every one of your 7 deadly sins. When it's all said and done, this will be a last bash to be remembered.
2. Montreal, Canada
When you combine Old World charm, beautiful women, trendy nightspots and legendary all-nude strip clubs at half the cost, it's no wonder that bachelor parties migrate north to Montreal to celebrate this oh-so-special rite of passage. Did we mention that the drinking age is only 18? Whether you're pub-crawling down Crescent Street, canoodling with coeds on Rue St-Laurent or overwelcoming your stay at Chez Parée, partying is the joie de vivre in the "Sin City of the North."
3. Miami / South Beach, Florida
If sun, sand and sexy babes are what you're after, Miami / South Beach is the place to be. The weather is steaming, the beaches are spectacular and the women are stunning. Lounge at Nikki Beach, satiate your appetite at Prime One Twelve, and rock the night away at LIV. Let the bachelor bash begin!
4. New Orleans, Louisiana
From food to music to nightlife, there simply is no shortage of indulgence in the Big Easy. Devour some gumbo and crawfish, catch some sweet melodies at Snug Harbor, down a tall glass of Hurricane at Pat O'Briens and now the bachelor party is ready for some late night debauchery. Just don't forget to pack some beads...
5. New York, New York
Temptation and the Big Apple go hand in hand. With infinite array of top-shelf bars, lounges, restaurants, and let us not forget strip clubs, New York City has few rivals as a last bash destination. A pilgrimage to Yankee Stadium, a spectacular hunk of meat at Peter Luger and bottle service at the hottest club in town will have your bachelor finishing out his single days with a bang.
6. Phoenix / Scottsdale, Arizona
If golf is the game for your bachelor party, then Phoenix / Scottsdale is the name. Known for the best in desert golf, the Valley of the Sun has over 180 golf courses to test your swing. But get ready to rock when the sun goes down 'coz the Phoenicians sure knows how to party. Whether your scene is Martini Ranch or Babes, the bachelor bash will stay entertained until the sun rises again.
7. Vancouver / Whistler, Canada
The East Coast stags may have "Sin City of the North," but the West Coast bachelors have their "Hollywood North." See and be seen at a lounge, boogie down at a nightclub or get a peep at the erotic Cecil. If snow, beer and snow bunnies are more the bachelor's pace, then hit the slopes at Whistler, après at Dusty's and go full-tilt after sun down at Buffalo Bill's.
8. Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
For some exotic fun, take the bachelor party south of the border for a little sun, a few cervezas and a lot of tequila at Cabo San Lucas. Go marlin fishing or snorkeling in the turqoise waters, bask in the sun and enjoy all-day happy hour at Playa el Médano, warm up the evening at Sammy Haggar's Cabo Wabo and then party 'til dawn at El Squid Roe.
9. Chicago, Illinois
One town that won't let a last bash down is Chicago; after all, it's a bachelor's kind of town. Chicago's got it all - legendary jazz and blues; haute cuisine, deep-dish and hot dogs; gut-wrenching comedy; and vivacious nightlife. So go root on the Cubbies, catch a note at Green Mill, tap away at Sound-Bar or be a VIP at VIP's.
10. Atlanta, Georgia
As the Strip Club Capital of America, Atlanta clearly needs a place in the top 10 destinations for bachelor parties. With over 30 gentlemen's clubs to choose from, the party's late night entertainment is well covered. Until then, take in some blues at Blind Willie's, roam the scene on Buckhead or for those more adventurous, put the pedal to the medal in a Nascar-style stock car in the Richard Petty Driving Experience.
