Travel ideas for mancations, guys weekends, and romantic getaways
  • Tropicana Resort Is The Perfect Spot For A Vegas Guys Getaway On A Budget

    There are loads of hotels in Las Vegas and many of those are located along the famous Las Vegas Strip. I've had an opportunity to visit most of the flashiest ones over the past several years (and I've even stayed in some of the worst) but for some reason Tropicana escaped me. This is remarkable when you consider that it is located in the perfect spot - close to the airport and the new Allegiant Field as well as walking distance to events across the street at MGM Grand like MMA Fights, Boxing, and concerts and other entertainment events.

  • Five Cities in the Dallas Metroplex to Visit on a Guys Weekend Staycation

    Dallas is more than "just a city" it is a unique geo-political destination that like Los Angeles would be better thought of as a collection of smaller cities surrounding a central point. That might be a weird way to look at it but while I once looked at "Dallas" as a place to go for a guys getaway, I've started to think of the destination in terms of cities like Fort Worth, Irving, McKinney, Allen, and Lewisville instead. Not only would any of these destinations make for a great excuse to get a taste of Dallas... but even folks who live in the metroplex can easily travel to someplace new for a sort of guys getaway staycation experience.

  • Road Tripping Adventure Ideas: European Spots for a Summertime Eurotrip

  • Florida's Paradise Coast Is A Perfect Guys Getaway Destination

    Paradise Coast is the very south western corner of Florida including Naples, Marco Island as well as inland areas such as Everglades City. It is a literal paradise destination for a guys getaway if you are looking for craft beer, fresh seafood, fishing, golf, beaches, and adventure exploring the natural environments ranging from lagoons to Everglades.

  • Wooten's Airboat Tours Southwest Florida's First Airboat Company Is Still Going Strong

    Airboat tours are THE iconic way to explore the Florida everglades and frankly I learned a lot more about the environment than I expected from the tour during our time flying across the water and weaving between clusters of mangrove trees. Wooten's is the original Southwest Florida Everglades airboat tours, established in 1953, and is unique since it sits on 253 acres of private land that apparently the national park service is trying hard to acquire so that it can be preserved.

There are many different factors to consider when choosing a vehicle for your journey. In this blog post, we will talk about how to pick the perfect classic car for your Route 66 Road Trip and make sure it's ready before you go!

  • Why I Decided To Book Another Cruise Despite The CDC Guidance

    Let's just start this post by saying that I do believe in the scientific method of review and research, trusting experts but also verifying information against those things that I know are true for my personal situation. Right now, "The Media narrative" is that cruises are dangerous, covid is spreading everywhere and cruise ships are simply disease incubators. In fact, I had a friend post just that as a Facebook comment the other day. So why then did I just spend my own money booking a seven-day cruise to Mexico?

  • Things We Loved About Virgin Voyages That You Won't Find On Other Cruises

    Virgin Voyages is essentially the anti-cruise. Created by Richard Branson who had, at the time anyhow, never gone on a mainstream cruise vacation but was convinced he could introduce a product that would both disrupt and revolutionize the industry. This brash hubris has resulted in an incredibly fun experience that is truly unlike any other Caribbean cruise option available.

  • Six Ways To Enjoy Your Visit To Half Moon Cay Beyond Just a Beach Break

    Half Moon Cay is one of the most beautiful private islands in the Bahamas and you can only get there when sailing with Holland America Line and Carnival cruises, so it will never be overcrowded like other Caribbean ports that you might have visited in the past. However, as nice as the white sand beaches and turquois waters are... there's actually more to enjoy here as well. Honestly though, while I had seen excursion options listed in my cruise planner before, I had never bothered to look past what I already knew I as going to love... relaxing on the beach.

  • Travel Is A Great Opportunity For City Dwellers To Escape And Improve Mental Health

    For many folks that lived in urban areas prior to the pandemic, rural areas seemed like a wonderful solution to escape to. While many urban dwellers ultimately chose to escape to places like Idaho, Florida, and Texas... most of us weren't lucky enough to have the resources to completely move. As we continue to recover from the pandemic though, this choice of rural vs urban living continues to be an important issue to consider in terms of quality of life and mental health.

  • Here's Why Guys Will Love Sailing On Holland America Line's Rotterdam

    Holland America Line has suddenly become my favorite cruise line and I don't say that lightly. While we enjoyed sailing with them in the past, the new generation of Pinnacle Class ships combined with one of the best leaderships teams in the industry has transformed what was once considered "newly wed and nearly dead" into a vibrant and fun cruise line... while still maintaining it's heritage as one of the more traditionally styled cruise operators.

  • Morocco Mancation Ideas

    While many Americans sadly might not know much about Morocco - it's cities are legendary... Tangier, Casablanca, Marrakesh, and of course, who hasn't heard of a "Fes Hat"? As the most stable country in Africa and the most wealthy per capita, Morocco has been a tourist destination for generations. As a result, this is a great opportunity to explore some of the most exotic places on earth while creating memories that will last a lifetime. Let's take a look at some of our picks for mancation ideas in Morocco.

  • Why MSC Seashore Is The Perfect Ship For a Guys Getaway Cruise

    We had the extraordinary opportunity to not just do a short inaugural cruise on MSC Seashore, Miami’s newest cruise ship, but also spent an additional seven days exploring both the exclusive MSC Yacht Club experience as well as a Fantastico experience balcony cabin. This offered us a taste of both ends of the economic spectrum but the good news is that most of the great features are available to guys seeking a cruise vacation regardless of how much you spend on your stateroom.

  • AM A ROCKSTAR Suite at Fauchon L'Hotel Paris

    If you think posh French hotels are just fancy and more for impressing that special woman on a romantic Paris getaway then think again. While the AM A ROCKSTAR suite would certainly be a great way to impress some ladies that I know, it would also be a perfect guys getaway or a bachelor party too.

  • Valley Of Fire and Hoover Dam Las Vegas Road Trip

    For many visitors to Las Vegas, the strip is where it's at... some even venture downtown to explore Fremont street but there is actually much more to explore here on some fun and easy day trips. One route that I've somehow never taken the opportunity to explore is a loop that includes Valley of Fire State Park and Hoover Dam. Here's why you should check this area out too!

  • The Tropicana Wine Mixer Was A Great Reason To Return To Vegas

    Like many of you guys, we've been holed up in our home area for the past two years - in fact my last major event before pandemic lockdowns was the 2020 Mint 400 in Las Vegas. It's been a long time to stay home but thankfully things in the United States are starting to get better and with vaccines and boosters available, even those like myself are getting the confidence to start traveling again. We were invited to attend the inaugural Tropicana Wine Mixer last month and while we were a bit nervous initially I was very impressed by both Tropicana Las Vegas as well as the event itself.

  • Koningsdam's Coastal California Cruise Is The Ultimate Experience For Wine Lovers

    When you think of "wine cruises", typically you think of riverboats floating through European destinations like those along the Rhine, Rhone, and Garonne (Bordeaux) or maybe even Portugal's Doro river. However, one of the absolute best ways to experience North America's best wine regions is on a Coastal California cruise.  What we liked about sailing on Holland America Line's Koningsdam was that it created an immersive experience - on the ship, as well as in port as well.

  • Road Trips To Explore The Full History And Beauty Of Gran Canaria

    Forest, beaches, rocky, mountainous and situated off Africa’s northwest coast, Gran Canaria is one of the most vibrant and diverse of Spain’s Canary Islands. In fact, there is so much to do and see that taking a road trip across the island is the ideal way to take it all in.
