Five Must-Dos for Dudes.
If you’re looking for a list of the best girly bars on Bourbon Street, go back to Google. If you want some ideas on what to do during your bachelor party when you’re, you know, sober, you’ve come to the right place. Here are five Bachelor Party Must-Dos in New Orleans.
1 Go Fly Boarding.
Your fiancé already thinks you’re a super hero – imagine what she’s going to think when she hears you can fly. Take lessons with your friends at NOLA Flyboarding and video the whole experience for posterity. They also rent party boats on Lake Pontchartrain.
2 Meet Some Swamp People.
Like the woman you’re about to marry, the Louisiana swamp is a deep and beautiful mystery. Come discover it in a traditional swamp tour boat, an airboat or by kayak. Captain Lou of Cajun Style Airboat Swamp Tours will even let you party on board and will supply the ice if you give him some lead time. Before you settle down into married life, get wild with the gators.
3 Rent Some Segways.
Want to make memories you can laugh about with your pals on your 50th wedding anniversary? Go on a Segway Tour and let hijinks ensue. It’s a fun way to explore the city, learn a little bit about our culture and history, and have a great time with your friends.
4 Visit Our War Museums.
You can head out to Chalmette Battlefield where Andrew Jackson and the patriotic privateer Jean Lafitte took on the British in the Battle of New Orleans, or you can go to the National World War II Museum and spend some time with the Greatest Generation. Your bachelor party, your call.
5 Go on a Ghost Tour.
Spend the evening with Madame LaLaurie. Relax. She’s not that kind of Madame – she’s the main character in one of New Orleans' most grisly ghost stories. Take a nighttime ghost tour in the French Quarter and learn about voodoo queens, vampires, ghosts and other things that go bump in the night.
