Guys Weekend Ideas

  • Atlanta is easily one of the most interesting cities of the American South, at least for guys. The downtown area is home to more than 500,000 residents, and the larger Atlanta metro area boasts a diverse population of more than five million; this demographic pretty much guarantees that people will always find cool things to do and discover.

  • Do not sleep on Buffalo for your next trip with the guys. This upstate New York city is full of personality and character, delivering a good time with a wide array of entertainment options and a hospitable vibe. Buffalo is located on the eastern shore of Lake Erie near the Canadian border and is a short distance to Niagara Falls. Buffalo offers more than just its reputation as a party city. As the second-largest city in the state, Buffalo offers a varied cultural scene, natural beauty, and a unique vibe that makes it worth a visit. Here are five reasons to make Buffalo the destination for your next epic mancation.

  • When most people think of a "guys' trip," New York City does not come to mind. However, sometimes if you want to go outside the box, you have to think within it. Not that NYC is much for conventions, but because it's a popular tourist destination, it's hard for individuals to imagine having a truly fun and unique experience there. Yet, the Big Apple has so much more to offer than the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty. If it's your turn to plan guys' weekend, impress your friends with these great guy weekend trip ideas in NYC.  

  • For generations, people have escaped to the mountains of North Carolina to avoid the stresses of everyday life. While some settled here in the mountains permanently and become the subject of legend and myth, others come here with the intention of resetting, recharging, and reconnecting with what it means to be man in a society that is ever-changing. These mountains possess untold beauty all year round but are especially enjoyable in the summer and fall. Whether you are looking for fishing, hunting, craft beer, artisanal food, or just fresh air - it's all hear and ready for you to take your share.

  • Vancouver is the gem of Canada's west coast, with tons of unique experiences to offer any travelers who come through. There's the beauty of the coast and the mountains, and the big city life, but there are also a lot of local subcultures and communities that are more unique to Vancouver. If unique local experiences are more your flavor, you absolutely have to seek out these lesser-known charms of Vancouver.

  • For many people Iowa is one of those states we've only seen from 39,000 feet as we fly over it and notice all those green fields of corn. Despite having family that had once lived there, that was about all I knew of it until I drove through the state a few years ago on my way to California. At the time I was surprised at all the cool stuff in the state but didn't have a chance to explore it more until last week when I was invited to join Travel Iowa on a quick tour.

  • San Francisco — the birthplace of the fortune cookie, the place where not a single bank failed during the Great Depression, and the city that was once part of Mexico until the Mexican-American War of 1848.

    Yes, over 800,000 people call this wonderful city home. And why wouldn't they? Average temperatures rarely dip below 45 and rarely peak above 70, which means you can do just about anything you want all year long.

    You and your buddies can easily take off for the weekend (or the week) and take in some of the following experiences.

  • With terrain ranging from rugged windswept seashore to temperate rainforest where ancient trees grow and even jagged mountains with stunning views, Olympic National Park in Washington state has something for everyone. Don't forget your rain coat though - while you won't find any tropical vegetation, the rainforest here gets an average of 150 inches of precipitation each year and up on Hurricane Ridge they get as much as 10 feet of snow during the winter months.

    From a quick guys weekend getaway to a longer hiking mancation, this is a spot that shouldn't be ignored!
