  • Ways To Still Explore Alaska Even Big Ship Cruising Isn't Happening This Year

    At this point it unfortunately appears that cruising isn't going to happen this year, at least not for the big ship from Holland America Line, Princess, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, and Carnival. However, that isn't the end of the story. There are a surprising number of ways that you can still make Alaska your summer destination and maybe even make it better than other years when the ports and waterways are filled with cruise ship visitors. Luckily, there are small ship cruises like UnCruise Adventures, airline discounts from Alaskan Airlines, and some great lodges and rail tours to try. Or, you can just go and rent a Jeep and explore on your own! Here's why Alaska still makes a great choice to visit this year.

  • Ways To Make Sure Your Camping Trip Is A Sustainable Adventure

    Camping is a wonderful way to spend your vacation and connect with nature. On the surface, simply the act of heading outdoors seems like it would be good for the environment. However, all too often I see people simply treat camping as an outdoor party and it is anything but an ecologically sound alternative to heading to a fancy resort. When done properly though, this family-friendly style of vacation can easily be a great way to spend time exploring a new area and connecting with nature as well as your companions in meaningful ways.

  • Exploring Off Road Trails At Joshua Tree National Park In A Gladiator Rubicon

    One of the things I absolutely love about Joshua Tree National Park is that it is a near perfect spot for people to learn how to drive off road vehicles. You can dip your toes in the sand rolling along Geology Trail or get the adrenaline going in the Old Dale Mining District and still have a great time. This park is your place to advance skills at a pace that you are comfortable with and that matches personal experience and technical abilities of your vehicle. Over the years I've done exactly that, first having explored trails with a Jeep Cherokee and now, earlier this month I returned with the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon. 

  • Brett Simpson, USA Olympic Surf Team Coach Shares Why He Loves Oceanside California

    Oceanside California is located right between San Diego and Los Angeles making it the perfect staycation destination to get away from the city and enjoy some fresh air and a fun surf town vibe. Over the past few years the city has seen a tremendous amount of new tourism development now it is the training grounds for the USA Olympic Surf Team. 

  • The Co-Bro Founders of eh Canada Travel Share Their Enthusiasm for Canadian Tourism

    A few weeks ago I came across two brothers that are living the dream. They are completely consumed with promoting Canadian travel and tourism to the point where the guys bought an RV and traveled from coast to coast sharing what they discovered. Now, in addition to blogging and speaking, they run an amazing video podcast travel show where I was a guest recently. I'm sure we're going to be talking more with them in the next few months as we start to recover from the Pandemic and I know I have my sights set on a fishing trip and maybe some off-roading or even just a laid back wine trip in the Okanogan Valley as soon as it is safe to go out again!

  • Malaysian Mancation Ideas in Kuala Lumpur

    Malaysia is a wonderful destination that should not be missed, and one way of making it an even more spectacular adventure is to make the sizzling capital of Kuala Lumpur your base. This incredible city is a treasure chest filled to the brim with exciting nightlife, delicious food and cool architecture. Travel alone, with a friend or even with your family, no one will be disappointed and there will be plenty to see and do for everyone.

  • How to Plan The Best African Safari Tour

    Going on a safari is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience since you’re presented with the opportunity to see some of the world’s most impressive wildlife in their natural surroundings, experience local African culture and visit some of the most beautiful places on the planet. Unlike other types of trips, planning a safari presents its own unique set of challenges, since there’s so much to see and do, and only a limited amount of time to squeeze it all in. Equally challenging is deciding where you want to go and when, as well as what to pack.

  • Three Awesome European Cities for a Memorable Guys Getaway

    Ever considered heading to Europe for a mancation? There's an array of fantastic cities that offer just the right blend of culture and the opportunity for guys of all ages to really relax and enjoy themselves.

  • Golden Ideas for a Guys Weekend in California Gold Country

    California is known as the Golden State for a reason and luckily there is still gold left for lucky and hardworking prospectors to find. While the gold rush is long over, that doesn't mean you can't re-live the golden days where men were men and wealth was there under your feet just waiting to be liberated from the Earth. While there are many places made famous by gold in California, we think Tuolumne County right outside Yosemite might just be the perfect spot.

  • Montana Guest Ranches Where You Can Unleash Your Inner Dude

    Some vacations are meant to see something specific and others are meant to escape from it all. At one of the more than 100 Montana guest ranches, you can do both. While it's easy to be cynical and think of these properties as nothing more than "guest ranches" where you can go and sip scotch on the porch while watching people pretend to be cowboys for your benefit - this state has a vibrant ranching industry beyond tourism too.

  • Four Non-Traditional Cruise Destinations You Need To Explore

    Planning a trip can turn into a full-time job when it comes to getting all the boxes checked. Picking a destination is only the first step, then comes the real work of planning everything from transportation and accommodations to dining and excursions. For anyone that thinks picking the location and packing a bag is enough work to put into vacation planning, an all in one cruise experience is the perfect way to get all the best elements of the trip from accommodations to dining arranged for you. Now all that is left to do is decide which spectacular cruise to pick for your first voyage!

  • Travel Risks Men Might Encounter

    Much attention is paid to the dangers that women face while traveling but men face danger too, especially when traveling alone in new places. These range from environmental dangers related to traveling in physically dangerous places to societal risks created by unscrupulous people looking to prey on naive American travelers. Let's take a look at some of these risks that men might encounter while traveling, as well as what you can do to avoid them.

  • 420-friendly Vacation Spots Open to U.S. Tourists

    Travel is tough right now. Not only do you need to take extra precautions to keep you and your fellow travelers safe from COVID-19 infection, but you, as an American, are also prohibited from visiting many places around the globe that are trying to better manage their COVID-19 outbreaks.

  • Everything You Need To Know Before Hiring a Kilimanjaro Guide

    For many men, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is a bucket list accomplishment. Unlike other destinations that you can simply buy your way to, climbing a mountain like this is an accomplishment that requires months, if not years of planning and physical conditioning. While your personal abilities and mental focus are clearly critical to success and so is the equipment, the right selection of a Kilimanjaro guide may be the difference between success and failure.

  • We Stayed at Sideways Inn Buellton And Loved It

    Fans of Sideways will immediately recognize the iconic "Windmill Inn" located in Buellton, CA. In the movie though, the motel that Jack and Miles stayed in was a budget property that wasn't really all that desirable. Up until a few years ago, that was still true. Thankfully the property was purchased by Highway West Vacations - known for buying affordable west coast properties and bringing them up to a level that would be considered chic while still maintaining an affordable price point.

  • Allegretto Vineyard and Resort In Paso Robles

    Vineyard getaways, the kind where you actually get to stay in a room not far from the cellars, are fairly common in the wine country regions of France, Italy, and Spain. The gist of a wine resort vacation is to get the most out of your stay by combining a winery tour with tasting, gourmet dining, and the immersive experience of spending a couple of days right where the magic happens. 

  • Yes, Now You Can Rent Sailing Yacht By The Room For a Week Long Cruise

    Typical yacht vacations are full boat charters and those can cost 10s of thousands per week (or WAY more depending on the size of the vessel). While having an entire yacht all to yourself is clearly a luxury worth aspiring to be able to do one day, we love this idea as a way of getting a taste of luxury for an affordable rate if you are looking for a guys getaway, bachelor party, or just an excuse to be out on the water for a few days.

  • Planning A Cyprus Stag Party Here's What You Need To Know

    For Americans, the Caribbean is our playground with warm water, beautiful beaches, and free-flowing drinks that make for a great party destination. Across the pond though, our European friends have the Mediterranean. While you can have an incredible stag party / bachelor party virtually anywhere from Ibiza to Bodrum, Cyprus offers their own sort of special atmosphere that makes it a fantastic destination for an epic party to send your friend off in style.

  • I Can't Wait To Visit Icy Strait Point On My Next Alaska Cruise

    Icy Strait Point, Alaska isn't the most well-known cruise port in Alaska, but it is quickly becoming a must-visit destination for cruisers visiting Alaska. In fact, based on what I've been reading since first introduced to it a year ago by our friends at Norwegian Cruise Line, it might just be the destination that draws you back to Alaska after you've checked the state off your travel bucket list.
