  • Guys Sports Getaway in Maryland

    For folks outside of the Baltimore / DC area, the notion of this area as a great destination for a sports-themed guys getaway may be an odd one to consider. However, while the region is overshadowed by legendary sports cities like New York, Boston, Chicago... or even Cleveland and Tampa... this is one of the best places in the entire country for sports lovers.

  • Here's My Love Letter To Alaska - Now Share Yours And We Can Maybe Both Go To Alaska This Summer

    I don't usually do contests but even if I don't win a darn thing in this one... I just absolutely love Alaska. The state has captured my heart as well as my imagination. That is why for more than a decade we've been supporting Alaskan tourism as promoting the adventures you can have there on a cruise (or better - a cruise tour). Holland America Line has now launched a campaign that asks their fans to share a Love Letter To Alaska and 10 winners will receive suite accommodations on one of their six ships that will be offering Alaska cruises this summer. So, how could I resist a chance to once more profess my love for Alaska!

  • Planning To Visiting Riviera Maya? It's More Than Just White Sand Beaches on the Caribbean Sea!

    Riviera Maya is a popular holiday destination located on the south eastern coast of Mexico's Yucatan. Whether you are seeking to visit Mayan ruins or relax on the white sand beaches, there is something for everyone here.

  • We Took A Southwest Florida Everglades Road Trip In A Toyota Sienna

    Minivans aren't sexy or cool... right? Well not exactly. While minivans of your youth were more focused on utility than comfort, technology and design, today's current generation of minivans - especially the 2022 Toyota Sienna are a different breed. While utility is still paramount, minivans are truly my top choice of vehicle for long road trips where you'll be riding only on paved roads. Just because the roads are paved though doesn't mean you can't have a great adventure though and that's what we did while exploring Southwest Florida Everglades with a Toyota Sienna.

  • We're Celebrating National Plan A Vacation Day

    We're celebrating National Vacation Day today. It's been more than two years since the pandemic interrupted our normal plans for getting out of the house and exploring the world so I think it's about time to get back out there. To celebrate and help everyone think of some great vacation ideas we're joined by some of our blogger friends sharing their "dream vacation" ideas and travel advisor, Heather from Flow Voyages is even sponsoring a giveaway to help.

  • Lani Kai Island Resorts on Fort Myers Beach Is The Perfect Florida Beach Resort

    Las fall I spend five weeks traveling around south Florida and I stayed in a wide spectrum of properties from exclusive luxury beach resorts to contemporary business hotels but I didn't expect Lani Kai Island Resort to be my favorite spot. While anyone can build a fancy resort with the toppest of top tier amenities, it takes something special to develop a beach resort that captures the soul of the community and entices visitors to return - generation after generation.

  • 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

    Europe is the perfect destination for a summertime road trip adventure. The lush green fields, snow-capped mountains, quaint villages, vineyards, breweries, and historic castles make it easy to see why this region has been a tourist destination for centuries.

In this post we will cover road trip ideas in Europe that are perfect destinations for adventuresome travelers looking to do a Euro road trip to experience both the history of Europe and enjoy some modern-day luxuries.

  • 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.

  • 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.
