  • Art, Food, and Entertainment on a Bellagio Vegas Mancation

    Picking the right resort for your Vegas mancation or guys getaway is essential. At first glance, you might think that it's "just a hotel" but the more trips here that you make, the more you realized that the choice of resorts truely sets the tone for your whole trip. In the case of Bellagio, that tone is one of more reserved fun and luxury including innovative restaurants, art galleries, and entertainment ranging from the fountains out front to one of the best Cirque Du Soleil shows in town!

  • Here's Where You Can Tour Motorhome and RV Factories

    It's pretty exciting to visit factories and see how things are built. Today, industrial-tourism is a big business and that ranges from visiting auto manufacturing plants to breweries. However, what about visiting an RV or Campervan factory? That might be a perfect twist on your same ol' vacation that could turn it into a memorable experience where you might even learn something!

  • Visiting Daytona Florida, the Original Mancation

    When thinking about places for the ultimate mancation most of us men think of places that are easy to get to, has guy-friendly activities and especially today is affordable. Daytona, located on the east coast of Florida certainly exceeds those requirements with plenty of fishing, nice sandy beaches, cigar bars, poker rooms, man-friendly spas, great restaurants, bars, the largest Harley dealership in the country, and of course the Daytona International Raceway is located there too!

  • Park MGM Las Vegas Preview

    Las Vegas is constantly changing and it was pretty obvious a couple years ago when the T-Mobile Center opened that Monte Carlo's days were numbered. It simply didn't fit sandwiched between the fantastic new arena and The Park on one side and Aria on the other. Thankfully though, instead of imploding the towers and starting from scratch, they decided to transform it into an interesting and unique property. We got a quick tour of it during a press event last month, but I can't wait to come back and experience it as a guest sometime soon!

  • Awesome Guys Weekend At Mandalay Bay Resort Las Vegas

    Sitting at the far south end of the strip, Mandalay Bay Resort seems like more of a conference hotel than a destination for a guys weekend, but over several visits it has become one of my favorite properties in Las Vegas. Simply put, it's got great bars and restaurants, fantastic entertainment, a great gaming floor, good rooms, easy parking, and it's about to get even better once the Las Vegas Raiders open their new stadium across the street in 2020.

  • Willows Adults Only Hotel and Spa At Viejas Casino Resort

    We were on hand this week for the opening of Willows Hotel & Spa, but I look forward to being able to return to fully experience the resort - especially the spa, pool deck, and restaurants on our own. However, from the brief time we did spend on property and our stay in one of their Escape Suites, this is the perfect destination for anyone in San Diego that is looking for a getaway where there will be no kids. It's the perfect distance from downtown, easy to get to, and delivers a full suite of luxury, spa, pool, food, and all the action you'd expect from a casino resort. Oh yeah, and there's also some of the best outlet shopping in San Diego.

  • How to Pick the Perfect Vacation Rental for Your Next Guys Weekend

    Aside from the destination itself, deciding where to stay is probably the most important thing to determine. Typically for me this has ended up being a hotel room or a resort villa but another great solution for a group is a vacation rental such as the one we stayed in on Anna Maria Island, Beachy Villa Vista provided to us by Island Real Estate.

  • What to Do If You Catch a Cold On a Cruise Ship

    Cruise ships are an environment unlike any other when it comes to the spread of disease. You have sometimes as many as 8,000 people from all over the world crammed into a boat together for a week or more. That means that each elevator button, hand rail, tongs in the buffet, counter tops are touched thousands of times each day and unfortunately, not everyone is 100% healthy. While you can protect yourself from others, sometimes it is YOU who is the sick one. Here's what to do if you catch a cold while on a cruise ship.

From coal mines in England to Gold mines in Nevada, now you have the opportunity to explore them too!

  • Awesome Ideas For The Ultimate Puerto Rico Mancation Adventure

     

    This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Don Q rum. All opinions are 100% mine.

    Puerto Rico is a fantastic place to visit and one that is shockingly close to the mainland United States... but feels like it is a world away. Aside from the fact that it has all the great things that make the Caribbean so wonderful, since it is part of the United States there is no need for a passport if you want to visit. From rum tours to diving, hiking in the rain forest or paddling through bioluminescent waters this island is absolutely one you need to visit this year!

  • Awesome UAE Mancation Ideas in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Beyond

    For those of us who have the privilege of exploring the world, few places remain where your buddies can't say "oh yeah, I went there last year!" when you suggest a destination. The middle east though, and in particular the gulf states however, still maintain a mystique and sense of adventure that you will not be able to find in other parts of the world.
