Ideas For A Bachelor Party In Oregon

Show your groom a good time with a bachelor party tailored to his taste.

Be creative in planning a bachelor party. Think of what would be a fun celebration for the groom. Take into account his interests or introduce him to something you know he’ll love. Try to schedule the party several weeks before the wedding. The groom will enjoy it more because he won’t be in the final pre-wedding countdown with activities, responsibilities and out of town guests all vying for his attention. Does this Spark an idea?

Downtown Portland

The indie music scene in Portland is a great backdrop for a 24-hour-long bachelor party. Reserve rooms at the Ace Hotel, a unique music-themed hotel in the heart of the downtown historic district with turntables in each room. Start with appetizers and a drink in the hotel bar, Clyde Common. Dine at a local restaurant and spend the evening visiting neighborhood bars, pubs and music venues. Purchase some vinyl at a resale shop to play in your room, or bring your own. In the morning, borrow the hotel’s free rental bikes for a ride and stop for brunch. Check out at noon and head to Willamette Jetboat Excursions for a two-hour boat tour of the Portland waterfront including the falls.

Beach Cookout

Plan a beach cookout bachelor party in Rockaway Beach. Start in the afternoon with swimming, surfing, fishing or hanging out on the undeveloped, natural beach setting of Rockaway. Pack coolers with cold drinks, steaks, salad. Bake the potatoes ahead of time, wrap them in foil and reheat on the coals. Bring wood for a campfire or a grill for a cookout. Sit around the fire and tell stories about the groom. Have someone bring a guitar so you can listen or sing along. Bring gag gifts for the groom to take on the honeymoon. Have a few non-drinking designated drivers to ensure everyone gets home safely. In mid May, join the fun of the Kite Festival at this small beach-side town.

Crater Lake National Park

Plan a weekend-long bachelor party at one of the most beautiful natural settings on the West Coast, Crater Lake National Park. If the groom is an outdoorsman, this is the perfect spot for his party. Book rooms at the historic Crater Lake Lodge perched on the edge of the caldera overlooking Crater Lake, or rent a cabin or campsite. If fishing, take the boat to Wizard Island for the best fishing adventure or fish from the shoreline. Use artificial bait. Pack lunches and hike some of the 90 miles of trails. Dine at the lodge or cook your own catch on a grill.
