  • Salmon Fishing Adventures in Alaska

    Who said that taking a cruise is the only way to enjoy the coastline of Alaska? For the ultimate adventure, we highly recommend looking into an Alaskan salmon fishing expedition!

    From rustic camping to luxury lodges there is something for almost every budget in Alaska. One of the most popular lodges is the Waterfall Resort, which was original founded as a cannery in 1912. Today, that historic cannery has been fully renovated into an all-inclusive resort that has hosted more than 50,000 guests! It is located on Prince of Wales Island, adjacent to the Alaskan Inside Passage, a spot know to generations of native american fishermen.

    Of course, if your idea of a fishing adventure is to be able to come back to the lodge and get a massage and five-star dinner there are those options in Alaska too. If that's more your style, check out the Alyeska Resort where amenities include a full spa, business center, even a sushi bar!

    Typically, the best time to visit Alaska for a fishing adventure is May through October, but different types of salmon have different peaks throughout that time period.

  • Sandals Montego Bay Review

    Heather and I had a wonderful time at Sandals Montego Bay and heartily recommend it to anyone looking for an escape to one of the most fantastic islands in the Caribbean. Sometimes it is tough to select an all inclusive as EVERYTHING can look fantastic from a tourism brochure or website. That's why it is tough to pick a resort sometimes. However, I am THRILLED to say that Sandals is still awesome, even almost ten years after we stayed in their sister property in Ocho Rios for our honeymoon.

  • Turtle Beach Resort Review - Barbados

    On my recent cruise on the Carnival Victory, one of my favorite stops was visiting the island of Barbados and the opportunity to check out the fantastic Turtle Beach Resort. 

    One of the tricky things about finding a good resort is finding a good balance between great staff, activities, and amenities. I have to say that I was super impressed by the island of Barbados, and I would recommend Turtle Beach Resort for a great mancation - or for our UK readers, a Lads Holiday! (Barbados is apparently very popular with UK vacationers and has regularly scheduled direct flights from London).

  • Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay Review

    Fresh back from a stay at Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay, I have mixed reviews. The Preferred Club has all the foundations for a wonderful, romantic get-away, but the newly opened resort is still a bit rough.

    Our first impression was WOW! My husband and I were greeted immediately from our taxi with warm hospitality. We were whisked away from the main entrance via golf-cart to registration, offered a glass of bubbly and a cold towel to refresh ourselves. By the time we were led to our swim-out Jr. suite, we really felt like VIPs.

  • Outdoor Adventures, Wine, and History: Biltmore Mancation

    Biltmore Estate is more than just stuff for the girls. In fact, this place is a hidden gem for those of us seeking some outdoor adventure while exploring how the "other half" lived. Even better is that it is located in one of the BEST mancation destinations in the United States - Asheville, NC.

  • Hawaii's Equus Hotel offers Polo Package

    Most guests to Hawaii probably are thinking about beaches, flowers, and volcanoes, but the Equus Hotel in Waikiki Beach is promoting its equestrian theme with  Complimentary Polo Tickets and the Option to Take an Oceanside Horseback Ride or Polo Lesson on Oahu's North Shore. If this sounds like a fun Hawaiian mancation then check it out...

  • Wild Dunes Resort has Everything for a Charleston Golf Mancation

    There are hundreds of great places to go for a golf mancation, especially along the South Carolina coast, but not many that offer virtually everything you could possibly want in the ultimate mancation or boys weekend. Luckily I was able to visit one earlier this spring! Wild Dunes Resort is located at the north end of Isle of Palms, South Carolina and the resort is certainly more than just another golf course.
