Travel ideas for mancations, guys weekends, and romantic getaways
  • header-imageSummer is one of the most exciting times to visit Virginia.

    Road trip adventures, beach front fun, mountaintop cabins and lazy days on the water are just some of the many reasons to make Virginia their summer vacation spot. Virginia has just created a list of 20 ideas for cool summer getaways for guys looking to explore Virginia.

  • header-imageExplore Colorado's many extraordinary outdoor gems this summer with the new Colorado Adventure Package from The Westin Westminster.

    In partnership with Boulder's Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides, the hotel is now offering three unique half-day adventures that explore Colorado's exceptional hiking, biking and rock climbing while also providing an in-depth understanding of the area's geography, history, wildlife and vegetation.

  • header-imageWhat do you think of when you hear the name Kia? Is it small, crappy, econobox? In the past, you may have been correct - but no longer! Kia has asked me to test drive some of their latest creations and they started me out with the fun and sporty 2013 Rio 5-door for a road trip review.

    While this car is undoubtedly intended to zip around town vs a 3-4 hour road trip, it felt comfortable on the drive from Chicago to Indianapolis. Possibly more importantly, the car looks great!

  • header-imageHaving cruised a few times in the Caribbean we wanted to do something new. A tour of New England and Maritime Canada, seemed like a great idea to explore a different area and show my wife some of the places I visited when I was younger. We had fun, the Carnival Glory is a great ship, but we learned a couple important things that will help guide us on future cruises 1) Sometimes the first trip on an itinerary is a bit rough 2) the "total cost" of a Caribbean cruise can be MUCH CHEAPER than other destinations 3) Sometimes you just need to be able to make your own fun when mother nature doesn't cooperate.

    Next year (2013), Carnival is set to bring the Glory back to Boston, but with Funship 2.0 Upgrades, and hopefully our cruise helped both Carnival and the various ports iron out any kinks that we experienced.

  • header-imageWhat do you take when you start with a great all-around great suburban family car, toss in a bit of style, and then take Nissan's determination to make it the best car in the segment? I call it the new 2013 Altima. With an industry leading 38 mpg, chic modern styling, super comfortable seats, and a peppy engine tied to a silky smooth CVT transmission, this car is perfect for picking up clients, taking your daughter to her piano recital, OR zooming down the road with the buddies on a road trip!

    As you may remember from our last road trip review of the Altima, we loved the car - and our only main complaint was that the 4 cylinder engine wasn't peppy enough for us to call it "fun". With this review, Nissan outfitted us with a 3.5 L V6 with 270-hp instead. That immediately eliminated that issue for us and there was much rejoicing!

  • header-coke-zero-nascar-logoDaytona is one of my all-time favorite destinations for a mancation or even just a quick guys weekend. The Shores Resort is one of my favorite places there as well, and now it is even better with a Coke Zero, NASCAR Race Package.

  • header-the-stag-companyChoosing a destination for your stag weekend is probably the most important decision to make when planning your stag do abroad. Get it right and prepare to be toasted all weekend long for your excellent foresight and planning skills – get it wrong and be ready to incur the wrath of your fellow stag do revellers.

    Here, we’ll take a look at three top European stag party destinations that should be under consideration for any self-respecting group.

     

  • header-crystal-riverWhile you might be more thinking about a fishing trip for your next guys weekend, how about trying scalloping instead? In addition to that, Plantation on Crystal River is located right in the middle of manatee central as well as having a fantastic golf course. 

    What more could you ask for?

  • bud-light-lime-a-rita-can-headerHappy Cinco de Mayo! Whether you are reading this today (May 5) or sometime else, Bud Lite Lime-a-Rita is designed to bring the spirit of this Mexican-American holiday to your party - without the fuss of multiple ingredients and a blender.

    The question is, what does it taste like?

  • carnival-breeze-headerDining is a highlight of the Carnival vacation experience and the 130,000-ton Carnival Breezewill feature a huge array of culinary choices when it enters service June 3.

    Two new offerings will include Bonsai Sushi, the line’s first full-service sushi restaurant, and an open-air barbecue venue called Fat Jimmy’s C-Side BBQ.

  • logo-headerUK Travel and camping site PitchUp is a guide to more than 5,000 UK and Ireland holiday parks, campsites, and more. While most of you likely think of camping as something to do in the United States, the UK and Ireland has a fantastic selection of camping opportunities as well!

  • what-to-take-fishing-headerIf you’ve never been before, there’s no shame in getting advice from a veteran, be that friends with whom you’ll be fishing or the grizzled expert at your local Cabela’s.

    Don’t waste money on the shiniest thing you can find. Take some time to learn about the gear you’re going to buy, and make sure that you’re taking any salesman’s advice with a grain of salt.

     

     

  • carnival-glory-headerIn June, Man Tripping will be sailing on Carnival Glory to check out this fantastic sounding itinerary. From whale watching, to deep sea fishing, and don't forget brewery tours, this itinerary is shaping up to be a fantastic mancation cruise! Now, in 2013 it will return to Boston with the full Fun Ship 2.0 upgrades it will be even better!

    Carnival Glory to Undergo Extensive Renovation, adding a Variety of ‘Fun Ship 2.0’ Dining, Bar and Entertainment Choices in Preparation for 2013 Cruise Season

  • header-imageLast week I had what might be a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I got to drive a Lamborghini Gallardo and my other writer drove a Ferrari California. Together, these cars cost almost half a million dollars.

    But they were AMAZING. This opportunity was brought to us by Imagine Lifestyles, and while their core business is luxury rentals (cars, yachts, aircraft, property) they also host this Ultimate Driving Experience periodically in different cities.

  • indy-500-headerThis isn't quite a "Fathers and Sons" trip, but last year I was invited to join my Father-In-Law and his friend on their annual trip to the mecca of motor-sports, the Indianapolis 500. While I am for the most part a NASCAR fan I have become attached to the spirit of auto racing in general, so I had a fantastic time.

    Additionally, I am proud to say that I survived a flea-bag motel so bad that even the roaches didn't stay there, a thunderstorm that started while we were sitting atop a metal bleacher, and the hundreds of thousands of people who descend upon the Indianapolis Motor Speedway each year.

  • indy-500-headerWhile not for everyone, attending a world-class sporting event is an awesome excuse to round up the guys and head off on an adventure. Visiting the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is one such opportunity and certainly one that EVERY race fan should attend at least once in their lives.

    So many holiday sites are dedicated to families, couples, backpackers and women, but what about the average bloke? He’s not what you’d call well represented in the travel market. However, there is a growing market for male-only holidays.

    Man-friendly holiday destinations go beyond Las Vegas and Eastern Europe’s capitals. There are hundreds of locations across the globe that cater well to the average man’s needs. Here are our three top picks.

  • lanzarote-headerThe small Canary Island of Lanzaroteis big on natural wonders and unique man-made attractions. Making this an ideal destination for groups that are keen to combine soaking up the sun with a spot of serious sightseeing. Lanzarote is a four hour flight from the UK, with plenty of cheap returns available with budget operators such as easyJet and Ryanair. But it´s a world away in terms of weather and scenery, boasting temperatures that rarely fall below 20 degrees Celsius, even in the depths of winter and a landscape that resembles something out of a science fiction movie.

  • Egypt isn’t just about the crumbling ruins sprawled out across the deserts, there is plenty more than crumbling going on there. Some of the world’s most bucket-list worthy dives and water sports are in Egypt’s Red Sea, and the modern beach resorts themselves are more than enough reason to head there for your lads holiday to Egypt. 

  • tradewinds-mancationWhat's better than a trip to an awesome beach resort? How about a ride on a jet pack??

    One of our most favorite beach resorts, TradeWinds in St. Pete Beach just got even better...
