Get Active with the Guys

Daytime Bachelor Party Ideas - Outdoor Adventure

Plan an Outdoor Adventure

Known as the “city in a forest,” Atlanta and the surrounding areas offer ample opportunities for outdoor fun! Get active with bachelor party group and go for a hiking, bike riding, kayaking, or paddleboarding adventure.

A few of our favorite outdoor adventures around Atlanta:

  • Head to Piedmont Park in Midtown, Centennial Olympic Park in Downtown Atlanta, or Chastain Park in Buckhead to walk the trails and see the city’s skylines. Bring a football or frisbee to toss around while you’re there!
  • Grab your sneakers or bikes and hit the trails! The PATH Metro Atlanta Trails are interspersed throughout Atlanta and offer ample opportunities for walking and cycling. In fact, the Silver Comet Trail spans 61+ miles – from Smyrna, GA all the way to the Alabama state line!
  • Rent kayaks, stand-up paddleboards (SUPs), hydro bikes, and more to explore the lake at Stone Mountain Park, east of Atlanta.
  • Venture north of the city to hike the 4.8-mile trails at Vickery Creek Trail at Roswell Mill. Along the way, you’ll see a covered bridge, Civil War mill ruins, a waterfall, and more. Visit Gate City Brewing nearby afterward for a post-hike pint!

Go Climbing at Central Rock Gym

Got a groom who’s into rock climbing? Turn it into an adventure for the group! Because this is an indoor activity, it also makes a perfect backup plan for outdoor activities when there’s inclement weather.

The Central Rock Gym (formerly Stone Summit) Atlanta location offers 28,000 square feet of climbing terrain, a 60-foot tall lead wall, 120 boulder problems, and more.
