Must Do Daytime Activities for a Las Vegas Bachelor Party
If you’re planning a bachelor party, what better place than Las Vegas? Las Vegas is one of the top destinations in the country for weddings and its accompanying ceremonies. While there’s no shortage of events to partake in after the sun sets in Sin City, there are just as many daytime activities in the area that will make for a fun and memorable event.
Schedule a Kayak Tour
While there are many things to do in Las Vegas within city limits, there are many beautiful outdoor areas worth exploring just outside of the city, too. One unique and enjoyable activity for all is kayaking. With Blazin’ Paddles you can choose from a range of packages designed for all skill levels and interests, including half-day and full-day Colorado River kayaking tours. Additionally, you can partake in an evening kayaking excursion with a campfire on the beach. No matter which kayaking adventure you choose, you’ll learn about the local history of the area and have the chance to spot wildlife.
Explore the Grand Canyon
One of the most majestic natural wonders in the United States is the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is just a short distance from Las Vegas, and it is a “must-visit” destination for locals and visitors alike. There are several ways to enjoy an outing at the Grand Canyon depending on everyone’s preferences. If you want to see the Canyon by foot, there are many great hiking trails that you can explore within the park. A helicopter tour is another option. Helicopter tours will give you a stunning bird’s-eye view of the Grand Canyon. You may also be able to see other renowned attractions from the air including Lake Mead and Hoover Dam, which are equally iconic landmarks.
Race at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway
For those who are looking for a bit of excitement during the day, the opportunity to drive a race car on the famous Las Vegas Motor Speedway is an essential activity. The Speedway holds NASCAR races throughout the year, and it’s one of the most popular sporting events in the area. Several private companies give you the chance to get into the driver’s seat of some of the fastest cars in the world, including Porsches, Lamborghinis, Ferraris, and more. Driving the track with a professional instructor in the passenger’s seat is a great way to satisfy your need for speed.
Jet Ski Lake Mead
Lake Mead is one of the largest reservoirs in the United States. It is only 24 miles away from the famous Las Vegas Strip, which makes it an easily accessible destination for a daytime bachelor’s party activity. Lake Mead, which was created through the Hoover Dam, is an attractive destination for water sports of all kinds. Along with kayaking and recreational boating, it is also a great place to go for jet-skiing. It’s easy to make a day full of fun at Lake Mead, too. There are also many nice beaches to enjoy at Lake Mead, which makes it an equally good destination for sunbathing and a picnic lunch.
Lounge at the Mandalay Beach Pool
While you can choose from an assortment of adrenaline-pumping and heart-racing activities in and around Las Vegas, you may want to include some more relaxing options as well. If the bachelor and party-goers want to relax or get a reprieve from the midday heat, heading to the poolside is a natural choice. The Mandalay Beach Pool is a top choice, as it contains its own beach complete with artificial waves. While you can feel like you’re at the ocean at the Mandalay Beach, you’ll have the added benefit of poolside drinks and comfortable lounge chairs. The Mandalay Bay Hotel where the pool is located also periodically has concerts in the evening that are worth sticking around for.
If you are looking for a fun activity that’s a little more active, paintballing is a good option. A paintball fight is a great way to build a bond with a team, and it will burn off some calories before the rest of the wedding’s ceremonies begin. There are several different paintball centers in the city, but it’s wise to call ahead to make reservations, as they tend to get quite busy during the day.
Watch the Golden Knights
The Golden Knights is Sin City’s beloved hockey team and a source of pride for Las Vegas residents. Therefore, catching an exciting game starring the Golden Knights is a great activity for a bachelor’s party. Games are conveniently located on the Strip, which makes it easy to schedule a game before heading out for an evening filled with bachelor activities in the City. In addition to the convenient location, attending a Knights game also provides the opportunity for celebrity sightings, as stars are often spotted sitting in the audience.
Head to the Stratosphere
With many different activities to offer, it’s easy to spend an entire afternoon at the Stratosphere Tower. The Stratosphere is a hotel that doubles as a makeshift skydiving destination. Although you won’t be jumping from a plane, you can get your adrenaline fix nonetheless by jumping from a height of nearly 830 feet off the top of the building. You’ll enjoy an exhilarating free fall jump with the potential to reach speeds of up to 40 MPH. If you want to catch all the action to replay later on, you can also order a video cam to take along for the ride that’s attached to your wrist.
Las Vegas is a melting pot of cultures and cuisines. Scheduling a buffet-style dinner for a bachelor’s party will quite literally give everyone a taste of Las Vegas. The Wicked Spoon restaurant, located at the Cosmopolitan Hotel, is an especially notable destination for an exceptionally delicious and diverse buffet-style dinner. Some of its standout dishes include pumpkin risotto, Thai tea, pasta, Italian sausage, and seafood scampi.
From touring the Colorado in a kayak Las Vegas to catching a hockey game and lounging by the pool, there are many great Las Vegas activities to enjoy for a bachelor’s party. Contact Blazin’ Paddles for more information on booking a kayaking adventure and planning an unforgettable day.
