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.

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. Before you settle down into married life, get wild with the gators. 

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.

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.

Discover Our Beer Scene

 Check out Louisiana's first brewpub, Crescent City Brewhouse, on Decatur Street. Founded by German brewmaster Wolfram Koehler, it's a great place to drink beer with your buddies while slurping down raw oysters.
