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.

Sometimes it's tough to get out of your fishing and golfing rut when planning a mancation, so here's some of our favorite mancation ideas:
