  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Our Pick For The Worlds Best Road Trips

    Many people dream of heading on an epic road trip. But there is an alternative to the infamous Route 66 (which you should definitely do). Some of them are far off the beaten track but have some of the best driving routes you’ll find anywhere. 

  • Liberty Sculpture Park Is A Reminder That Freedom Isnt Free

    We often look at the fabled Route 66 and celebrate road-side attractions that have sadly slid into the past but the I-15 freeway between Los Angeles and Las Vegas is still growing with new roadside attractions. While the most famous ones are Alien Jerky in Baker and of course Calico Ghost Town, in recent years the tiny town of Yermo has opened a huge travel station featuring a giant ice cream Sunday... and Liberty Sculpture park memorializing and championing the human desire for freedom. 

  • Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf Resort Offers Programs Perfect For a Guys Getaway

    Baja Mexico is one of our absolutely favorite places to visit and if you are looking for an awesome guys getaway filled with golf, fishing, and great drinks than there isn't much better a place to visit than Los Cabos. There's no shortage of resorts here with a wide variety of price points and amenities but Pueblo Bonito Pacifica impresses us with a wide variety of man-friendly activities beyond just the normal golf and fishing.

With the launch of AmaDahlia there is now another fabulous option for folks looking to make this bucket list adventure a reality.

  • Baja Isn't The Only Place You Can Swim With Whale Sharks In Mexico

    While most folks associate the Sea of Cortez and Baja California Sur towns like Loreto and La Paz as the only place you can swim with whale sharks in Mexico, these giants of the ocean are also available in the Caribbean too. Quinta Roo, Mexico resort Ser Casasandra sends us word of their fabulous package to experience this bucket list experience in style.

These are places where products and brands that made America great were - and are still - being created. From bourbon whiskey to baseball and automobiles, it's time to pack up the RV and head out for some adventure.

  • Island Packers Whales And Wildlife Cruise

    Island Packers is one of the most respected coastal cruise operators in Southern California. They have been offering education, recreation, and research cruises exploring California's Channel Islands since 1968. In fact, they are the official boat concessionaire for the Channel Islands National Park. This includes year round transportation to the "local islands" of Santa Cruz and Anacapa for backpackers, hikers, campers, and day trippers too. The also offer seasonal transportation to Santa Rosa Island and San Miguel Island too. Our trip was less about visiting the islands though and more about experiencing the rich marine habitat that surrounds them.

  • Getting Back To Nature By Glamping Santa Barbara Style at El Capitan Canyon

    When most people think of visiting Santa Barbara, the image of a resort on the beach or something downtown within walking distance to the "Urban Wine Trail" comes to mind. We did things a bit different though and spent some time getting back to nature and relaxing in style at the El Capitan Canyon located about 20 minutes west of Santa Barbara and directly across the highway from el Capitan State Beach Park.

  • Four Seasons Resort Nevis Celebrates Rum Month With The Ready To Rum Package
