mancation

Mancations can take many forms, from golf trips with the guys to elaborate and luxurious once in a lifetime experiences.

The term "mancation" is widely considered to have come from Vince Vaughn's character in the movie, "The Breakup" released in 2006. However, it has since grown to be a general term referring to any men-only vacation, similar to the more common "girls getaways".

Other words that are also used to refer to a men-only vacation include: guys getaway, boys weekend, lads holiday, and even a brocation.

Over the past several years, as this site has grown we have had the chance to talk with a number of media about mancations and why taking a mancation is not just an excuse for "boys behaving badly" but is actually a very important opportunity for men to bond, share ideas, learn new skills, and be men without having to apologize.

  • Iceland Mancation Ideas

    At a certain point, the standard golf trip gets sort of boring and you start looking for a new adventures with the guys. Thankfully, in recent years airfare to Iceland has become unbelievably affordable. This has quickly transformed this once tiny and forgotten island in the North Atlantic into an exotic adventure destination that everyone can afford to visit.

  • Montana Guest Ranches Where You Can Unleash Your Inner Dude

    Some vacations are meant to see something specific and others are meant to escape from it all. At one of the more than 100 Montana guest ranches, you can do both. While it's easy to be cynical and think of these properties as nothing more than "guest ranches" where you can go and sip scotch on the porch while watching people pretend to be cowboys for your benefit - this state has a vibrant ranching industry beyond tourism too.

  • Ten Reasons Why Guys Love a Viking River Cruises Rhine Getaway

    I tend to be a major advocate for a cruise lifestyle. Simply put, I LOVE the experience of being on a boat, but I know a lot of guys who aren't convinced that a cruise is for them and not every line or itinerary is. However, last fall I had the chance to explore the Rhine thanks to Viking Cruises and I still can't believe how many opportunities there are for guys to have an amazing time on this route!

The warm weather and the clean beaches are just added perks of taking a vacation in Miami. All the guys can have fun, enjoy flavorful drinks, smoke cigars, and soak up the sun in a city that seems to never sleep.

  • Tips To Plan an Amazing Beercation in San Diego

    I'm guessing most of you guys love beer, I do too! Luckily, I've been blessed with numerous opportunities to visit some of the best beer cities in the country and in fact I live in San Diego - which is at the top of most lists of places for beer lovers to visit. However, these beercations are more than just hopping in the car and drinking. To make the most of your time and money it's important to plan ahead. This is your opportunity to try new things, expand your boundaries, and bond with your buddies around an awesome shared experience.

  • BBQ, Blues, and Elvis on a Memphis Mancation

  • Wales: The Land of Castles, Golf, Trains, Beer, and Welsh Rarebit!

    While the UK in general might not be the manliest place in Europe, Wales would certainly qualify. After all, this is a land of more than 600 castles, steam trains, beer, golf, and a fiercely independent people. In fact, while it is a relatively small part of the overall United Kingdom, this nation is so important as to even give the title Prince of Wales to the heir apparent to the British Monarchy.

  • Chicago's Kimpton Hotels are Great for Mancations

    Kimpton Hotels is a relatively new brand, but it is certainly a great choice if you are planning your guys weekend. After all, the point of a guys weekend is doing something special, so why stay at the average business hotel when you come to Chicago? Instead, why not try a super stylish boutique hotel like one of the ones that Kimpton runs - Hotel Monaco, Hotel Allegro, and Hotel Burnham.

  • Best Massachusetts Mancation Ideas

    Massachusetts may be difficult to spell, but it is not difficult to find some great options for the ultimate guys weekend or a fantastic mancation. Few states have as rich of a mixture of terrains and opportunities packed into such a small place. For instance, imagine starting in Boston with a pub crawl, followed by a bike tour through gorgeous countryside, kite surfing on the cape and then wrap it all up with a deep see fishing expedition, and a historic reenactment! Just don't forget a classic New England-style clam bake for dinner!

  • Insider Tips from a Former Las Vegas Concierge

    Vegas can be a tricky place if you don't know what you are doing. I know my first few visits weren't nearly as fun as those that followed since I began to learn my way around but I'm in awe of Las Vegas Concierges. There is so much stuff going on in this city that is constantly changing and yet they seem to know everything about it as it happens.

  • Nine Things I Didn't Expect To Find In Torrance

    Torrance California... it's probably not at the top of your list of tourist spots to visit this summer but maybe it should be. Honestly, going into this trip all I cared about was hanging out with my friends for a few days and I knew that at least I'd have a good time with them. After all, what could an industrial town just south of LAX and bordered by some of the most notorious neighborhoods possibly offer me?

    Utah is a great state for adventures and that includes family friendly travel - especially activities to help fathers and sons bond together. Heber Valley, located just 15 minutes from Park City and less than an hour from Salt Lake City offers tons of exciting opportunities including: Hiking, biking, golfing, fishing, opportunities to explore history and of course all sorts of winter recreation too.

  • Santa Fe Charm at the Santa Fe Sage Inn

    This hotel was booked for us by Visit Santa Fe. One of the things that I love to see is when older properties are renovated - rather than simply leveled to create something with a cookie-cutter design conceived of without any regard for the community. It shouldn't be a surprise that this was the path that the owners of the Santa Fe Sage Inn took, considering the dynamic and unique nature of Santa Fe itself. What on the outside looks like an older motel, has been lovingly restored and updated with a low-frills but comfortable and inviting decor matching the vibe of the town.

  • JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort

    When it comes to planning your guys weekend or mancation, the hotel is almost as important as the destination. This is going to be your home base for a few days and it will generally set the tone for the rest of your adventure. While I'm of the thought that different groups of guys can pretty much make anywhere work, the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country is one of my favorites since it offers pretty much everything you'd need for the perfect escape with your friends.

  • Utah Mancation Ideas in Capitol Reef Country

    Three years ago I had a chance to do a road trip from Chicago to San Diego and passed through a magical area of absolute desolation and natural wonder. Unlike many other natural areas of the country, this was a land of stunning rock formations and wide open spaces where you could really "get away" from it all.

  • Minnesota Mancation Ideas

    Minnesota is gearing up to welcome sports fans who will be heading to the land of 10,000 lakes later this year to check out the NFL's newest sports complex housing the Minnesota Vikings but there's tons more fun to explore in the state for those ready to explore the north woods!

  • Carnival Sunshine Cruise Review

    Last fall I had the chance to take an 8-day Southern Caribbean Cruise with Carnival as part of one of our #MenWhoBlog cruises. This was the first time I've had a chance to really enjoy a cruise with a bunch of my guy friends as well as my wife so it was a bit of a different experience. Similarly, this was the longest cruise I've taken to date - and while it has been completely overhauled a couple years ago I was a bit nervous that it would feel dated. Luckily all those fears were unfounded and we had an amazing time that confirmed my premise that a group of guys can have an amazing time sailing together for a Carnival Cruise Mancation!

  • VIP Shooting Experience at The Range 702 in Las Vegas

    When it comes to visiting Las Vegas, you can't help but be drawn into the glitz and uber luxury resorts of the strip or the quirky fun of downtown but there's a lot more to this city than gambling resorts. Luckily, I'm here to help you explore that "other side" of Las Vegas and we're kicked it off with a visit to The Range 702, Las Vegas's largest indoor shooting range!

  • Three Types of Awesome Baseball Vacation Adventures

    Our culture has graduated from man caves to mancations, and many guys are tying in their bro travel to sports. But it's gone far beyond a double header or a weekend snagging two NASCAR series at the same track. Now it's multiple events at multiple venues, and baseball has proven to be a perfect sport for it.
