Epic ATV and UTV Tours Through the Sonoran Desert

This one is for the thrill-seeking groom! Climb aboard an ATV and take a guided tour through the Sonoran Desert, which we think is one of the best-kept secrets of the Southwest—it’s GORGEOUS. This trip is really the best of both worlds: grand scenery, heart-pumping trails, and the chance to get dirty with a hands-on experience.

And if you don’t want to drive yourself, you can opt for a UTV ride where the guide drives and all you have to do is relax and enjoy.

Scottsdale Bachelor Party Must Dos

Hosting your bachelor party in Scottsdale sounds like an awesome time, but it is essential to keep a few things in mind beforehand to avoid any hiccups and keep the party going. Here is all you need to keep in mind if you’re planning a joint bachelor and bachelorette party.

Weather Considerations

‍Scottsdale summers are notorious for being a bit rough. The weather is hot, and the land is dry. There is no denying or escaping it. So, prepare well for your desert adventure. Pound bottles of water like it's beer, wear your sunscreen, keep those shades on, and take a well-deserved dip in the private pool after all the hustle and bustle of the day to cool down.

Book in Advance

Nothing ruins the mood more than missing out on an activity you’ve been looking forward to all day. A delay can mess up your schedule for the day and create a conflict with another potential plan. It is best to book everything in advance (including bachelor party supplies) to avoid these awkward situations and make your bookings as early as possible to get your preferred time slot. 

Be Transparent With Your Budget

The group stays together, and no one should be left behind. So, it is best to be clear about any financial constraints so you can find accommodations and activities that are within everyone’s budget.

Celebrating With Others

We believe it is an awesome idea for partygoers from other cities to band together and make the celebrations grander. Embrace the new crowd who are functioning on the same wavelength as you, make some new friends, and have the time of your life. The more, the merrier, as they say.

Etiquette of Partying With a Group

As exciting as it is to meet new folks to party with, there is a certain etiquette to interacting with other bachelor parties during your bachelorette party (or vice versa). Check out our article to learn about it in-depth, but here are two basic elements you must follow:

#1 Break the Ice

Often, the hardest yet most crucial part is mingling with a new group and breaking the ice. Cut that awkwardness like a cake with a toast to the bride or groom. Find areas of mutual interest and let the course of nature take over from there. 

#2 Respect Everyone’s Boundaries

The true essence of a party is when everybody feels comfortable and respected. The number one rule of partying with others is consent. Let the drinks and conversations flow while ensuring no one feels unsafe and everyone is at ease.

Let Batch Do the Planning

As fun as bachelorette or bachelor parties can be, planning is an exhaustive task. From thinking of things to do and tracking expenses to making all the bookings on time, it certainly isn’t easy. 

The Batch app, which is free to download, lets everyone at the party see the full itinerary and the cost of the whole ordeal. With full transparency of the cost and itineraries, your Scottsdale bachelor party moves forward in an orderly fashion, with no potentially uncomfortable situations arising later on. We let you focus on what’s important: having the time of your life!


Is Scottsdale good for a bachelor party? 

Absolutely! Scottsdale has a lively atmosphere for a bachelor or bachelorette party, especially if you’re looking for an adventure! The nightlife of Scottdale is quite exciting, with countless bars and restaurants of all kinds, from laidback ones to rooftops. If you’re seeking an adventure, the desert landscape surrounding Scottsdale offers plenty of that. Explore desert trails, go hot air ballooning over the scenic Sonoran Desert, embark on a guided horseback ride, or golf on world-class courses. It's all here!

How much should a bachelor party cost?

The cost of bachelor party activities can vary vastly depending upon several factors, such as location, number of people, duration of the trip, dining preferences, activities planned, and more. It wouldn’t be possible to give an exact estimation, but on average, for an individual, it should range between $500 and $1500 for the weekend. 

Before the big day, you must discuss budget constraints and preferences to ensure everyone is happy and comfortable.

Where to golf at a Scottsdale bachelor party?

Renowned for its world-class golfing facilities, Scottsdale is considered one of the best places for golfing in the United States, so there is no shortage of places to golf. For bachelor parties, a few recommendations include Gainey Ranch, We-Ko-Pa, and Scottsdale Silverado Golf Clubs.

Most of the golf courses in Scottsdale are top-notch, so explore more options and find the one that's the best for you and the gang!

Is Scottsdale a bachelorette destination?

Scottsdale is quite a popular destination for bachelorette and bachelor parties, thanks to its warm weather, plenty of indoor and outdoor entertainment options, lively nightlife, and gourmet-level food.
