Travel ideas for mancations, guys weekends, and romantic getaways
  • Its motto is "where legend meets history" and people there describe it as "classic Florida roadside attraction meets real-world archaeological site". Whichever way you choose to view it, the Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park is absolutely worth visiting when you Saint Augustine. During our initial drive-by on the tourist trolley, I wasn't sure what I was going to find there since it seemed like a classic tourist trap but honestly, it did a great job of bringing the nearly 500-year history of America's oldest city to life in a way I didn't quite expect.

  • Nothing beats that cool crisp feeling of exhilaration as you cruise down the slopes with the wind rushing past your ears. Skiing is one of those sports that simply can't be appreciated till you get to the top of a snow covered mountain and look out over the terrain realizing that few people will ever have the opportunity to share this same view that you have right now. It takes a bold person to participate in a sport where most people will travel long distances and wait in long lines - just for those fleeting moments of absolute freedom powered by nothing more than gravity pulling you to the bottom of the slope. With winter quickly approaching, here are some of my picks for the coolest places to ski this winter!

  • Ever dream of sleeping under the Northern Lights? Unfortunately that will never be a possibility for most of us since it is DAMN COLD. Even with someone to snuggle up with, it's something that hasn't been a reality until recently because it requires organization and planning. We love what Off the Map Travel is offering now with their Aurora Bubble Sleds!

  • Southwest Idaho has several hot springs that range from fully modern facilities resembling a suburban swim club... and then there's the more rustic variety. Burgdorf Hot Springs certainly falls into the later but it is one of the coolest hot springs experiences that I've seen in my travels!

  • When vacationing in an RV, you don't have to worry about where you're going to stay and adding those costs into your trip. In many cases, if you plan on a mancation involving the great outdoors, you'll be able to stay closer to nature when you bring along an RV.

  • Idaho was the last of the lower 48 states for me to visit and I'm not really sure why I waited this long. I think it's mostly because unlike some states there isn't that "one big thing" that draws you away from your normal travel patterns and compels you to explore. That's one of the great things about being a blogger though since you get invited to visit places that you might otherwise never go. Now that I've been to Idaho I can't wait to go back!

  • When you travel in the US, there are typically two options - hotels and camping. In other parts of the world, campervans are a popular option but until recently they haven't really been embraced in the United States. Luckily, that's changing as it offers a very cool alternative for those looking for a "back to nature" experience but still want to retain the warmth of comfort of a nice soft bed.

  • When most folks think of a guys weekend in Tennessee the first city that comes to mind is probably Nashville, but there is another great city that is located along the Mississippi River just west of there that holds a wide range of awesome opportunities for your next guys weekend.

  • Whether desiring to get away with a group of male friends or family members, West Virginia offers a wealth of possibilities for the ideal mancation. Spectacular locations and views provide many different adventure options. Whether desiring home-cooking, fast-food or exotic dishes, cuisine choices also abound.

  • Baltimore has the unfortunate fate of being in the shadow of Washington DC but that doesn't mean there's nothing here. In fact, this is a great city for guys to visit and explore history, sports, craft beer, and of course seafood!

    There's something special about taking a weekend getaway. It's the perfect way to rest and recharge so you can face Monday with a renewed sense of purpose. For me, La Jolla is the perfect weekend getaway. There's no shortage of beach towns all along Southern California Coast, but La Jolla is special. I guess that's why thousands of tourists flock here every summer! Thankfully they're gone but the town is still a great place for a weekend getaway or staycation.

  • Winter is on its way, and that means likely some snow along with it. While many people try to hibernate indoors during the Winter, you don't have to be one of them. There are plenty of activities that you can do outside during the colder months, and they range from simple to quite crazy. If you're tired of the standard sledding down hills in your town, or building snowmen, here are some fun activities that you can consider trying out this upcoming Winter to add some excitement to those months.

  • The Winchester Mystery House is an excellent spot for a weekend getaway with the boys. The house is the former home of Sarah Winchester, heir to the Winchester fortune after the tragic death of her husband and child. The enigmatic widow is rumored to have had a connection to the paranormal, and there are tales of ghostly beings walking the halls late at night.

  • If you want to experience one of the toughest prisons ever built without becoming a permanent resident, then it’s time to visit the West Virginia Penitentiary. Located in Moundsville, this castellated Gothic style prison was home to some of the worst criminals the state ever produced. Since its closing in 1995, it’s been a tourist attraction for people all around the world.

  • If you're traveling to the Colorado area, there is one hotel stay that every man must make at least once in his life. Tucked away between large mountains and lush trees sits the elegant Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. Within the walls of the Stanley Hotel, you will find a wide range of amenities to make any stay just right.

  • There isn't much more manly than facing the elements and exploring the world beyond the confines of the paved roads. Unfortunately, unless you are with an instructor or first experience it as a passenger, this can be a challenging task that you might not feel comfortable exploring. However, there are trails in Southern California's Anzo Borrego Desert that are perfect for learning the basics of off-road adventure.

  • If you are traveling with your buddies anywhere in the New England Region, a stay at the National Hotel should definitely be in the cards. Located on Black Island, the hotel itself is situated directly on the bay, with ready boat access right out the back of the property. Spring and summer bring green grass and amazingly great weather, so almost any outdoor activity is waiting for traveling parties of any size to take part in.

  • Fall is almost here and it's time to head out for one last warm weather adventure before the snow and sleet set in. Luckily, there are tons of great opportunities out there to have some fun even though it's a bit colder and the days are starting to get short again.

  • The essential elements of any great golf mancation fluctuate depending upon the particular trip. Sometimes you’re looking for a little relaxation. Other times it’s heart-pounding excitement.

    If you can find some opportunities to enjoy a little golf, some fine Scotch, and a good cigar, then you've probably got the recipe for a perfect guys’ weekend. That’s probably why the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort is an unqualified hit with guys everywhere.

  • For more than 10 years I've been to "Detroit" to visit my wife's family but a few months ago I realized that I've never actually been to "Detroit". Like many cities in the rust belt, this is one of those cities where the people who live there have abandoned the city itself and now live in collar cities. Luckily though, like Cleveland, Detroit is making a comeback and there is a surprising amount of opportunities to plan an awesome guys weekend exploring Motor City!
