  • Authentic Key West Hospitality at Amsterdam's Curry Mansion Inn

    Bed and Breakfasts can be an excellent alternative to hotels when you want a more intimate experience or a room closer to the action than can be supported by a traditional hotel. That's exactly what Amsterdam's Curry Mansion Inn delivers for its guests in Key West, Florida. The property is only a few steps from the action on Duval Street and a quick walk to Mallory Square to the north. Plus there's a full breakfast each morning and an evening cocktail reception that even features locally distilled spirits!

  • What To Do If Injured While Traveling

    Getting injured on vacation is never on the agenda, but it’s important to know what to do in case you need medical attention while traveling. Here’s what you need to know in case of emergencies when you’re far away from home.

  • Essential Travel Gear You Need To Pack Smart This Year

    At this point, I've become a pretty savvy traveler, some months spending more time on the road than in my own house. However, it's always a good idea to take a step back and put together a list of what you need to pack to travel smart this year. There are so many things that you COULD take that sometimes it becomes confusing or worse... you overpack and get a costly overweight surcharge at the airport. That sucks, so let's take a look at the critical gear you need to pack!

  • Don't Be Scared of This Transylvania Tour Including Dracula's Castle

    There are European vacations and then there are ones that include a visit to Dracula's Castle as well as the one that was used in Bram Stoker's Dracula, while touring through Romanian and Bulgarian villages, enjoying local food, and learning about customs from this unique culture that dates back thousands of years.

  • Chase The Northern Lights on This Swedish Balloon Tour

    Seeing the Northern Lights is a bucket list item for many guys and that includes myself. While I've seen my shares of photos and videos, the time I saw these lights was transformational. It is pure magic. Unfortunately, they can be incredibly elusive. I was privileged to see them in North Dakota but even if you travel to areas above the Arctic Circle, there's no guarantee on any given day. However, the more time you spend, the higher you get, and the farther north you go the more likely you are to see them. That's what this balloon tour over Sweedish Lapland is all about.

  • TravelCar Offers An Alternative To Airport Parking and More

    Years ago parking at the airport was easy - use what's provided onsite. Then came wave after wave of off-site parking options and thankfully this competition helped reduce prices and add new services such as car washes and oil changes. Now comes a new company promising to help sort through a sometimes bewildering number of options with their app so you can find the best location when dropping your car off on a trip. Plus, they can even help you find a rental on the other end!

  • Viking Expeditions Revealed - Prices, Ship Features, Photos & Itineraries

    We were on hand tonight for Viking's unveiling of their latest product - Viking Expeditions. With their incredible success with taking over the river and small-ship ocean cruise market, Viking Expedition is poised to have the same disruptive impact. Most importantly, the positioning is clearly a move away from traditional expedition offerings where the experience is secondary to the destination, Viking promises to bring a similar experience that we love from the river and ocean product to expeditions as well - including features such as large comfortable bathrooms as well as accessibility and comfort. 

  • How About A Sports Mancation Down Under Exploring AFL Games

    Australian Football came about when Tom Wills, one of the founders, encouraged the winter game of football as a way to keep cricketers fit when out of season. Today it has evolved into one of the hottest sports on the planet. Even though I've never had the chance to attend a game in person, the videos excite me for the opportunity

  • Solo Studio Cabins Are The Perfect Option For a Guys Trip At Sea

    One of the things I love about the newest cruise ships by Norwegian Cruise Line is that they've invested heavily in what they refer to as Studio Rooms. For those looking to do a guys trip at sea, this is the perfect option since you get privacy and can save money compared to the traditional cost of booking your own room.

  • What To Do If You Have a Travel Disaster In A Foreign Country

    Traveling can be dangerous and a bit scary sometimes. Even when you do everything right, there's always a risk of tripping on a curb, getting hit by a car, or having your bag stolen. Truthfully, these things can happen here in the United States too but when traveling in a foreign country it makes things that much more complicated since things work differently in various countries and there might even be a language barrier. Let's take a look at five things to do if you have a travel disaster when visiting a foreign country.

Carnival Panorama will be offering 6, 7 and 8-day cruises year-round from Long Beach to the Mexican Riviera.

  • Fun Is the Key To A Florida Keys Road Trip

    The Florida Keys have been a destination for guys looking to get away from it all for generations. Legendary men like Ernest Hemingway along with others including Tennessee Williams and Shel Silverstein have called the area home over the years. While I'm not suggesting that your Florida Keys Mancation should or will turn into a change of residence... after spending a few days exploring the upper and lower keys I can understand how that might come to be! Here's a taste of some of the adventures you can find on an epic guys getaway and Florida Keys Mancation!

  • Norwegian Encore Is The World's Best Ship For A Guys Getaway

    Norwegian continues to impress me. I had the opportunity to celebrate the launch of Norwegian Encore with them in Miami last month and it is absolutely the best ship out there for a guys weekend getaway. That isn't to say that other lines aren't good or that you can't have fun on an older NCL ship like Sky or Sun (I do) but Encore is the ultimate manifestation of Norwegian's vision for what cruising should look, feel, and taste like. Let's take a look at six reasons why Norwegian Encore is the world's best cruise ship for a guys weekend!

  • Temecula Is Perfect For a Southern California Guys Wine Getaway

    When most guys think of taking a wine weekend getaway their minds shift to Santa Barbara, Sonoma, or Napa but there's another area that I've recently become excited about. Temecula, California is located the perfect distance between Orange County, San Diego, and Los Angeles and is rapidly coming into its own in terms of vinoculture as well as tourism opportunities in general. For years I drove by the area on my way to Vegas but now I can't wait to go back again soon!

  • 5 Ways to Choose Your Next Vacation Destination

  • 20+ Key Lime Foods We Found In The Florida Keys That Aren't Pies

  • Experience French Luxury Small Ship Cruising with Ponant

    Luxury is a word that is often abused when it comes to cruising. To some, quite literally any time spent on the water is a luxury. However, the spectrum runs from simple Caribbean cruises to something more exotic and that’s where Ponant fits in.

  • Italian Wine Food and History On a Tuscany Mancation

    Tuscany is an incredible, life-changing experience and a great place for guys seeking an amazing mancation experience.

  • Tips For Planning a Destination Wedding Bachelor Party In Maui

    You've probably heard of destination weddings - if you haven't, your partner surely has. Typically I find that guys will do a bachelor party back home for their friends... but what about a bachelor party where your wedding is with just your closest friends that will be at the wedding itself? Obviously there are layers of complexity here with logistics and planning but when done right this can be as fun and memorable as the wedding ceremony itself. Since Maui is one of the top wedding destinations, let's take a look at ways you can plan a successful bachelor party in Hawaii.
