1. Rest and Relaxation at a Gents’ Barber Shop
Before you paint the town red, spend a day getting pampered at a gents’ barber shop. If relaxation is what you are looking for, try a spa treatment. Or if you want your skin to glow for your big night out, then get a facial with a manicure to boot. A bachelor party is about doing things that are outside the norm, so sit back and let someone work hard for your enjoyment! If you think spa treatments are just for ladies, you are missing out. Let the stress of wedding plans melt away and massage out those knots and tension with the guys. There’s nothing “girly” about looking and feeling great inside and out!
2. Eat and Drink at Shem Creek
If you are a “low-key” kind of guy, then there is no greater place to let off a little steam than in Shem Creek. This Lowcountry gem is a fantastic place to lose yourself while having a great time. Far away from the downtown hustle and bustle of Charleston, you can sit back and relax while watching the ocean and drinking some cocktails. If seafood is your thing, then R.B.’s Seafood is sure to please. For the cowboys in the group, Saltwater Cowboys on Shem Creek can’t be beaten. You can rest assured that the feel of Shem Creek is laidback, and it will be easy to have a great time eating and drinking at any of the famously fun eateries and bars on the water!
3. Hit Folly Beach
What is better than a day at the beach? Fill a cooler and hit the water for some sand and music. Folly Beach is a favorite hotspot, but still has that local vibe! It’s just south of the downtown area of Charleston. Home to the famous and fantastic Folly Beach Pier, you can take a surf lesson with Carolina Salt Surf Lessons or hit the gift shops looking for great groomsmen’s gifts to commemorate your awesome adventure. Strike up a volleyball game or sit back and soak up some rays – whatever you do, it will be an epic way to spend some time before hitting the town! There is lots of eye candy to enjoy, just remember to look, but not touch!
4. Blade & Bull Axe Throwing
Seriously, like what could be more manly than an axe? Throwing one, of course. To blow off a little steam pre-wedding day, hurl axes at giant-sized dart boards at will! As if you care, it is totally safe and there is an instructor to show you the way. But you got this right? It might sound like a pretty simple concept; throw axe, hit target. But it is harder than it sounds! Don’t worry, you won’t look completely stupid if you don’t make the mark. You get consolation points for trying super hard and hitting something. As long as it isn’t your groomsmen. Or, if they are being totally obnoxious, you might score extra points! #totssafeaxethrowing
5. Take Your Charleston Bachelor Party on a Saltwater Cycle Boat Tour
