6 Seriously Chic Bachelor Party Destinations

Book a getaway with your best friends at one of these luxury hotels.

Bachelor parties get a bad rap, but that's usually because of poor planning or a lack of imagination. Celebrating a friend's upcoming nuptials can be so much more than liquor and lechery.

These six hotels offer packages that will send grooms off to wedded bliss with sophistication and style.

The Moorings Village, Islamorada, Florida

A fisherman's paradise in the Keys, Islamorada offers the feel of the Carribbean without leaving the continental U.S, including colorful reefs, shipwrecks and abundant sea life. Your whole party can enjoy a private villa at The Moorings Village before a day out at sea. Celebrate the groom in style with a private sunset cruise (complete with champagne toast) or fill the day with sailing lessons, diving, snorkeling or deep-sea fishing.

For a truly memorable experience, book the oceanfront chef's table at the Mooring's restaurant, where your catch will be prepared and served to you. During a full moon, there's even a party with live music, fireworks and fire breathers.

The Taconic, Manchester, Vermont

Winter or summer, outdoorsmen can celebrate an upcoming wedding with a weekend in Vermont. But beautiful mountain views aren't the only reason to stay at the Taconic in Manchester: Guests have access to mountain biking, hiking and kayaking excursions, and off-roading lessons on a Land Rover. Come winter, there's more than 180 ski trails within reach, with Stratton Mountain, Bromley and Magic Mountain offering slopes to meet all skill levels.

After a long day of skiing, relax on the grand porch with a cup of organic coffee, flavored with just a touch of local maple syrup.

Omni Fort Worth, Fort Worth, Texas

Everything's bigger in Texas, and that includes the bachelor parties: Catch live music at Magnolia Motor Lounge and Shipping and Receiving, take a tour the new Whiskey Ranch distillery, and watch the bronco busters at the Stockyard Championship Rodeo, all within spitting distance of the Omni in Cowtown. Or keep it local: Whiskey & Rye in the hotel lobby offers pool, live music and regional draft beers from Rahr & Sons.

Whatever your itinerary, though, barbecue is a must: Heim BBQ is a great option for short ribs and brisket.

Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, Nassau, the Bahamas

Looking for a tropical getaway that's not too far away? Just two-and-a-half hours from New York, Nassau offers sun, sea and sand—plus snorkeling, diving and the world's largest salt-water sinkhole. If planning isn't your thing, the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar will help organize your excursions: The beachfront resort includes golf and tennis facilities, a wildlife sanctuary, 20 bars and restaurants and the largest casino in the Bahamas.

It's also home to a swimming pool with a swim-up aquarium, where guests can (safely) check out sharks, stingrays and other exotic sea creatures.

Hotel Commonwealth, Boston, Massachusetts

Sure, you could just catch a ballgame with the guys and call it a day. But Hotel Commonwealth's Champions package takes it to the next level, with a room overlooking Fenway Park, premium tickets to a Red Sox game, $50 in team merch and a replica World Series ring—plus champagne, confetti cupcakes and a personalized scoreboard message.

After the game, take a Duck Boat tour of Beantown, also included in the package.

Andrew Pinckney Inn, Charleston, South Carolina

Level up your stag party's beer drinking with a craft-brew weekend organized by Andrew Pinckney Inn: The boutique hotel's Charleston on Tap package includes a guided tour of local microbreweries, a six-pack of craft beer, souvenir beer glasses and a $50 gift certificate to a local brewhouse.

With its signature yellow facade, the charming inn is just a block from one of the oldest public markets in America.
