When you plan your bachelor party in Minnesota, you can look forward to enjoying a weekend or week-long fishing trip with the guys during the day, and living it up in swanky clubs by night. Sign up for foodie or brewery tours in Minneapolis, or tube down Lake Superior in Duluth. Book a stay at one of numerous Minnesota vacation rentals if you want to kick back and relax in a rustic cabin, or opt for a luxury condo for easy access to downtown bars. Consider these cities in Minnesota for your bachelor party.
Enjoy a variety of nightlife opportunities and outdoor attractions when you visit Minneapolis for your bachelor party. Start your celebration with a city tour that combines food and brews with the Skyway Food tour, the Historic Northeast Minneapolis Food Tour, or the Minneapolis Brewery Tour. When the boys want some adventure, head to the Mall of America to not only pick up some dress clothes for an upscale dinner, but also to ride the roller coasters and play games in the arcade. Outdoor fun is plentiful, including hiking trails that lead to the Minnehaha Falls. When the sun sets, continue honoring the groom with a toast at the Dakota Jazz Club and Restaurant, or the Prohibition Bar.
Rochester is a haven for bachelor parties who have an interest in athletic outdoor activities. Head out to the Douglas Trail for a morning run or hike, and tour the Quarry Hill Nature Center to get in your exercise for the day. If you want to see the history of the city, stop in at the historical Plummer House. A vacation rental in Rochester puts you in close proximity to the Zumbro River where you and your buddies can kayak, canoe, or tube the waters with a cooler in tow. Top off an evening with some beverages at LTS Brewing, or the Salem Glen Vineyard and Winery.
Your groomsmen won’t forget the epic adventures in Plymouth. During the warmer months, try your hand at flyboarding on the water with Just Add Water Flyboard. Golf enthusiasts can get in 18 holes at Hollydale Golf Course, and fishermen can reel in dinner for the evening at Parkers Lake Park. The Green Mill Restaurant and Bar is the place to find some scrumptious American cuisine while the Lucky’s 13 Pub and Cowboy Jack’s offer nightlife fun.
Book a vacation rental in Duluth and find yourselves with balcony views of Lake Superior. Home to Minnesota’s North Shore Scenic Drive, Duluth offers both stunning sights on water and land when you stop in at the Historic Congdon Estate for a tour. Soak up the nightlife with brews at the Dubh Linn Brew Pub, or mixed drinks at the Black Water Lounge to toast the groom. If you have a group who thrives on outdoor activity, sign up for the Duluth Experience, a walking tour that guides you to Lake Superior and the downtown attractions, such as the Riverwalk.
5. Grand Marais
Grand Marais is a hotspot for tourists seeking summer fun in Lake Superior and winter fun gliding down the slopes. A vacation rental in town gives you access to snowboarding and skiing at the Lutsen Ski Resort, as well as boat tours on the lake with Grand Marais Boat Rides. Head out to the trails of Judge C.R. Magney State Park to get your heart pumping, or opt for a leisurely afternoon at the Grand Marais Lighthouse.

Opt for a rustic cabin in the heart of the wildlife at Father Hennepin State Park when booking a vacation rental in Isle, which sits on the shores of the fishing paradise of Lake Mille Lacs. Spend a day with your buddies fishing for walleye, pike, or muskie with Mac’s Twin Bay Guide Service while knocking back some brews and reminiscing about the good ‘ole days, or get in some downtime sampling the wines at the DeCorsa Vineyard and Farm Winery.

If you’re looking for a wild night out, check out the live music at Beckham’s Bar and Bistro, or at Castaway’s.
