Travel ideas for mancations, guys weekends, and romantic getaways
  • We had the privilege of joining the Norwegian Bliss as guests of the cruise line during its inaugural West Coast cruise out of Los Angeles. While our cruise experience was just under two days, it was abundantly clear that Bliss is the finest ship sailing under the flag of any of the major cruise lines today. Not only did it hit the mark for virtually everything I could possibly review - but it offered new experiences that will help open cruising to new audiences in search of manly adventure.

  • Casa Velas is a boutique hotel located only a 10 minute ride from the Puerto Vallarta airport that offers nightly activities including cigar rolling, tequila tasting, craft beer tasting, and cocktail making, plus includes unlimited golf at three different Puerto Vallarta golf courses. We stayed here as a guest of the hotel and had a fantastic experience that might make this one of our favorite destinations.

  • Honestly, even though I was with a tour group I was a bit afraid to tour Puerto Vallarta at night. Unfortunately Mexico doesn't have the best reputation these days but thankfully I ignored those concerns because I had an awesome experience that was safe, clean, and tourist friendly. While I'm sure that most of you could wander around and explore the Puerto Vallarta food scene on your own - it was so much easier to do with the folks at Vallarta Food Tours who guided us and made everything easy.

  • Majorca (or Mallorca), one of the most visited islands in Europe is located in the Mediterranean sea, to the South East of Spain. This perfect location gives Majorca extraordinary weather that is the envy of most parts of Europe. As the largest of the Balearic islands, it is a prime holiday destination of many Europeans but also a great spot for Americans too. Here's some of the reasons why you should consider the island for your next lads holiday or mancation!

  • While many Americans sadly might not know much about Morocco - it's cities are legendary... Tangier, Casablanca, Marrakesh, and of course, who hasn't heard of a "Fes Hat"? As the most stable country in Africa and the most wealthy per capita, Morocco has been a tourist destination for generations. As a result, this is a great opportunity to explore some of the most exotic places on earth while creating memories that will last a lifetime. Let's take a look at some of our picks for mancation ideas in Morocco.

  • Planning a father and son guys getaway vacation can be a challenge.  On one hand, you have to pick a destination that will hold the attention of an active boy. On the other hand, you need to find a spot that also appeals to you. But lounging in a hammock while sipping margaritas on some tropical island isn’t much of a comprise.   

    Disney World is a great middle-ground because it offers a variety of activities that you and your son will both enjoy and plenty of opportunities to bond. There are thrilling theme park rides, giant water parks, mouth-watering cuisine, sports, boats, monorails, swimming pools, and the list goes on. While it may sound like a kid’s destination on the surface, trust me, grown men have just as much fun as the kids! With that said, let’s take a look at how to plan a father/son Disney World adventure.

  • Whether travelling with a group of your mates for a lads holiday or or a more reserved mancation getaway, Gozo is a destination you may not have thought of, but should. It’s ideally suited for guys because while it has all the activities you might want - hiking, fishing, diving, surfing, snorkelling, biking, etc. but it's a bit off the beaten path. Because of this, you're going to find more personal attention, lower costs and more opportunity to relax on the idea, the second largest island in the Maltese archipelago.

  • I learned more about the dynamics of a performance automobile in three hours at the BMW Performance Center than I think I have in the past 20 years of simply driving on my own. Once you pass "drivers ed" in high school, most guys simply learn from trial and error. Unfortunately, that can be a very expensive and painful way to learn - and most likely you still will not have proper techniques. I am on a mission to break that pattern, so BMW invited me out to their school for the day. What I discovered there was far more than just the "driving experience" that I expected.

  • While most casinos want to keep you trapped inside their giant resorts, there's much much more to Las Vegas than the modern glitz and glam. While these air conditioned resorts might be the perfect spot to hang out in the summer, come fall, late winter and early spring Las Vegas has a wealth of outdoor adventures that are perfect for a guys trip. Let's purge a bit of the glitz and glamour and head off strip to see what we can find.

  • The beautiful continent of Australia makes a popular vacation destination, with bright blue water that makes the beaches a top hotspot. Although the land and water may provide gorgeous sights to see, there are still some emergencies that could come up while vacationing there. With these five tips for dealing with vacation troubles, anyone can be as prepared as possible no matter how their trip goes. 

  • There’s almost no bad time to visit London and explore this amazing city with someone special. While London isn't known as a romantic city like it's sister across the channel is but when you peek beneath the rigid British facade you'll discover that this city is every bit as romantic as New York or Paris.

  • Nevada is one of those states where most visitors only visit one or two points. In the case of this state, you have Vegas and Reno... but while much of the state is empty desert, there are some real gems that deserve more attention. Carson Valley is one of those spots and it's surprisingly convenient, low cost, and packed with awesome stuff that guys of all ages will love.

  • Indonesia’s rich diversity extends beyond the people, culture, and ethnicity. The sprawling archipelago is also home to a myriad of wildlife that will fascinate anyone. From birds to primates, discover awesome native animals you can only see in Indonesia.  

  • While Vegas might be a great destination for a bachelor party for most Americans, how about a trip across the pond instead? Plus, instead of going to a replica English Pub for a pint … you’ll be able to visit a real one!

  • If you are planning a guys weekend getaway to explore Carson Valley, Nevada I can't think of a more perfect basecamp than the Carson Valley Inn and Casino. The prices are low, atmosphere is fun, friendly and it is perfectly located to explore all that the area has to offer.

  • One of my challenges with managing this site over the past decade is that the concept of a "guys weekend" tends to evoke images of wild, balls to the wall partying when in fact that's just one way to go. As I've gotten older however, I've discovered that many of my friends either choose not to drink, or unfortunately have discovered that they have problems with various substances. This can prove to be challenging initially when planning an awesome getaway, but it doesn't have to.

  • This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rip It Energy Fuel. All opinions are 100% mine.

    Baja California, Mexico is a legendary peninsula that has some of the most beautiful coastline, mountains, valleys, and vistas of anyplace on Earth. It is also a playground for some of the most wealthy and adventurous people in the world who love to test their physical endurance and technical ability as a driver during the Baja 1000 and other races held here. We recently had a chance to spend four days here, driving a Baja challenge car that had actually completed the Baja 1000 course and it's an amazing experience. What you might not know is that there's no credentialing authority, so all you need to do to compete is show up with a car and pay your entry fee!

     
  • There are some awesome long distance bicycle routes in the US that you can try out this spring and summer. To complete these routes you must be an advanced cyclist with proper training. However, the joy of bicycling is that you can bite off as much or as little as your physical stamina will allow. So use these as inspiration and know that the five mile stretch you enjoy today could lead to a trip lasting weeks in the future.

  • There are many great cities today that are a great choice for a beercation, but only Grand Rapids calls themselves "Beer City". It's a great destination that is located a close to Chicago, Detroit, and Indianapolis making it a great place for a weekend getaway. With more a Beer City Ale Trail boasting more than 80 breweries, it is certainly one of the top beer producers in the country. Experience Grand Rapids invited us to visit and see what all the fuss was about. Here's what we found!

  • Baja Races including the Baja 1000 and Baja 500 are among the most iconic motorsports events in the world and so I was thrilled to be invited to join Wide Open Baja for a four-day adventure driving Baja challenge cars with them. This was probably the most brutal, terrifying, exhilarating, and amazing experience that I've ever had and it's something that every race fan should try at least once. Not only is there the opportunity to pilot machines that are more incredible than can be put into words, but it's also a chance to bond with you buddies and visit parts of the world that normal tourists simply will never see.
