Grab your best men and head west to Colorado Springs, Colorado for the ultimate guy’s weekend! Whether you’re just looking to get away with your boys to let loose and soak up the fresh mountain air or you’re looking for the best outdoor experience for your bachelor party, we know just the place! Book a trip to The Broadmoor for a weekend full of endless adventures mixed with history, luxury, and genuine hospitality. Follow along as we outline an incredible itinerary perfect for a 4-day, 3-night stay at The Broadmoor.
Fly into the Colorado Springs airport and head to Distillery 291 to kick-off the weekend festivities. Distillery 291 offers whiskey flights Thursdays through Sundays from 2:30 pm to 6:30 pm. During your experience, you and your buddies will be able to try 7 of their flagship whiskeys and 1 of their flagship liqueurs. Plus, you’ll be able to take home your 291 Tasting Glass, so be sure to grab a bottle or two to enjoy throughout the weekend.
Now that you’ve got the party started, head to The Broadmoor where you can arrange a car service to take you to The Broadmoor’s Fly Fishing Camp, located in Lake George, Colorado. Your group can book one of the seven authentic cabins, dating back to the 1920s each reimagined in Broadmoor style. Upon arrival, drop your bags in your cabin and gather in the grand lodge to share stories, a drink, an incredible meal, or all three.
By arriving the night before the festivities begin you’re able to get settled in and wake up rested, adjusted to the altitude and ready for a full day of adventure. Perhaps enjoy another glass of whiskey around a fire before calling it a night!

Day 1 – Friday
Activity – Fly Fishing Camp
Wake up with the sun and enjoy coffee with a breakfast buffet before heading out on a guided fishing tour with one of the experienced fishermen! If you’ve never been, no need to worry, you’ll fit right in once you’re decked out in gear.
A Night Under the Stars
After a full day of fly fishing, if you’re feeling up to it, you can explore the trails and wilderness around you! Or, opt to just kick back and enjoy the peace and serenity around you.
As the sun begins to fade, enjoy one more night in the wilderness under the wide-open skies before heading back into town for the rest of your weekend. Indulge in s’mores around a fire pit with a glass or two of whiskey telling stories of the groom’s past shenanigans. You know, the stories not appropriate for your toast during the actual wedding!
Day 2 – Saturday
Activity – Golfing
Arrange a car service back to The Broadmoor in the morning and check-in to your new room. Depending on your group size, opt to book a few guest rooms, suites, or one large cottage that can house everyone under one roof! Once you’re all settled, head out for a round of 18-holes on the world-renowned golf course. Be sure to pack a few drinks to enjoy out on the green. We recommend a 6-pack or 2 of a locally distilled gin cocktail in a can, Lee’s Spirits.
While you can certainly travel with your clubs, if you want to avoid the headache, you can rent clubs at The Broadmoor’s Golf Pro Shop. The Golf Pro Shop also carries everything under the sun you need for a day on the green.

After a long day on the green, head back to your rooms and freshen up for a night of cocktails with your boys! If you need something nice to wear, stop by the Peter Millar store on property for a nice button-down or slacks. Or, shop around for the perfect look to wear to your rehearsal dinner! The stylists at Peter Millar will be able to assist you in putting together a one-of-a-kind look!
Some of our favorite pieces from Peter Millar include the Hyperlight Glide Sneakers which are the perfect combination of comfort meets contemporary casual.
