Planning a bachelor party can be a daunting task. You're either striving to create a night that no one will forget, or a night that people will have only a foggy recollection of. But planning these events can be simple, as long as you stay focused. I'm Clark Palmer with your Bankrate.com Personal Finance Minute.

Don't try to please everybody. Your main goal is to make sure the groom has a great time. You could try an outdoor excursion such as whitewater rafting or go to a surfing camp. Ron Jon Surf School in Cocoa Beach, Fla., provides a three-hour lesson at $85 to $135 per person.

You could also do a multiple-day fishing charter. It could be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and you're sure to catch some big fish.

And then there's the good old-fashioned road trip. Picking a music-and-arts festival as your destination not only provides a bit of nostalgia for the college days. You could go music festivals such as Coachella, Bonnaroo and South by Southwest.

And if you're running out of ideas, hit up a baseball or football game or a comedy show in town.
