There are all sorts of guys getaways, but at the core of a mancation is letting loose and being manly men without regard to many societal norms. That means it's OK to fart and burp but there are phrases that should never be uttered (unless you want to face the ire and ridicule of your comrades!).
How to Plan a Guys Getaway That Your Sober Friends Will Enjoy

How To Plan a Guys Getaway Your Sober Friends Will Enjoy Too

One of my challenges with managing this site over the past decade is that the concept of a "guys weekend" tends to evoke images of wild, balls to the wall partying when in fact that's just one way to go. As I've gotten older however, I've discovered that many of my friends either choose not to drink, or unfortunately have discovered that they have problems with various substances. This can prove…
How to Pick the Perfect Vacation Rental for Your Next Guys Weekend

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.

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:
