Northampton is an excellent base to go on a beer tour with friends.

Next, check out Brew Practitioners Brewery & Taproom to try their blonde ale, Read Amber, or IPA.

Get onto the water with a bachelor party aboard a fishing boat with Magellan Fishing Charters in Harwich Port. Set off from the harbor marina for several hours of fishing, then come back to shore for dinner and drinks at Brax Landing.

If you prefer a more leisurely day on the water, board Monomoy Island Excursions for a trip out to the islands to visit the seal colony, or rent a boat from Nauti Jane’s Boat Rentals and sail along the Cape.
Those seeking an adrenaline rush from extreme adventure have a blast in Charlemont. The Zoar Outdoor Adventure Resort offers 11 zip lines, three rappels, and two sky bridges, so you can zip along the canopies on a guided tour. The resort also has kayaking and white water rafting down the Deerfield River. Another option in town is Berkshire East Mountain Resort, which offers zip lines, white water rafting, the Thunderbolt roller coaster, and a mountain bike park.

For sports enthusiasts, head to Worcester for a sports-filled bachelor getaway. During the day, join friends on the field for a paintball battle at Allstarr Paintball & Airsoft. Racers can speed around in go-karts at Tri-State Speedway, while golfers can hit the links at Green Hill Golf Course. In the evening, check out a game played by one of the local minor league teams, such as Worcester Bravehearts baseball, or Massachusetts Pirates, or see one of the college teams at the College of the Holy Cross. Grab food and drinks at O’Connor’s Restaurant & Bar, Dive Bar, or The Ship Room.

Plenty of vacation rentals are available in the surrounding towns of Adams, North Adams, or Williamstown.
For those who want a little bit of everything without the big city crowds, Provincetown is an excellent option.
