Travel ideas for mancations, guys weekends, and romantic getaways
  • mustang-trunk-spacePlanning for a road trip as part of a mancation can be a long and arduous process. There’s the deciding where to go, sorting out a hotel for the area, and a rental car should you need one.

    Car rental can be one of the most important aspects of planning a road trip, especially if you are heading abroad to embark on yours. Here are a few things you should bear in mind if you’re thinking of hiring a car as part of your trip.

  • It's the middle of summer for most of you, but Kensington Antarctica has a great idea for a way to cool down - way down! While most Antarctica expeditions consist primarily of just a couple hours (or less) while your ship sits within eye shot, Kensington Antarctica offers you a chance to go ice climbing, abseiling into crevasses, go 4-wheeling on the ice to a science base, and even fly all the way to the South Pole.

    Plus it leaves from Cape Town, so you can check out World Cup sites or go golfing before heading off on your adventure!

    Honestly guys, I think Antarctica is going to be closed to tourism by the time I finally save up the money to visit, but if you have the cash, this is a great opportunity! Send photos back please :)

  • Who said the south is the only place for great BBQ? Certainly not the people at The Kitano New York Hotel! They have put together an awesome sounding series of rooftop BBQ packages for almost any taste - from the Original Tar Beach experience to Brazilian Churrasco, or even the classic New England Clam Bake.

    This is really targetted at something larger than your typical mancation (25 person min.) but if you have a bunch of college buddies an are looking for something cool, this might be just the thing!

  • Mississippi might not be first on your list when it comes to planning a golf mancation, but Visit Mississippi sent in some information about an awesome Elvis Celebration and a list of some of their great golf courses at bargain prices and I think it deserves another shot!

  • Ok, by now you probably already have heard how big the Norwegian Epic is and the fact that they even will bring a guitar to your room so you can jam out on board (into your headset of course). But did you know that they are also breaking down the old boring cruise ship image by injecting tons of new technology in other areas as well. This even includes bringing the casino right into your stateroom for games like slots and video poker.

  • buffalo-trace-visitor-centerGetting ready for a last minute summer road trip this year? Ryan O'Reilly, author of the travel novel, Snapshot and To Nourish and Consume shares some tips to ensure a great mancation road trip!

    Now is the season for road tripping. That glorious season when doors fling open, car engines start and people disappear into the backwater of the country. At the moment, a couple of friends and I are embarked on one such adventure. As I write this, I am seated at a picnic table somewhere on the side of highway 16 in South Dakota.

  • Biltmore Estate is more than just stuff for the girls. In fact, this place is a hidden gem for those of us seeking some outdoor adventure while exploring how the "other half" lived. Even better is that it is located in one of the BEST mancation destination in the United States - Asheville, NC.

  • Looking for a fun and exciting way to spend Father's Day this year? How about taking dad to a NASCAR race - or if you have kids, take them. If you are on the West Coast, you might consider a visit to the Infineon Raceway in Sonoma. The course is one of only four tracks in the Sprint Cup circut that is not oval, so this makes it an even more unique experience.

  • Looking for a rustic yet refined mancation in Montana? The Triple Creek Ranch has just finished renovating their guest cabins. With 250 wines in their cellar, an Orvis approved fly-fising resort, and plenty of land available for hiking and seeing wildlife this might be a great spot to check out.

  • Most guests to Hawaii probably are thinking about beaches, flowers, and volcanoes, but the Equus Hotel in Waikiki Beach is promoting its equestrian theme with  Complimentary Polo Tickets and the Option to Take an Oceanside Horseback Ride or Polo Lesson on Oahu's North Shore. If this sounds like a fun Hawaiian mancation then check it out...

  • Last month, Heather and I had a chance to visit Haywood County, NC and stayed at Boyd Mountain Cabins. For those of you who have never heard of Haywood County, it is located in North Carolina's Smoky Mountains, just off of I-40 and only a few hours from all the major cities of the South East. It is also a very easy drive from most places in the Midwest. The collection of seven different cabins plucked from locations all over North Carolina, have been restored, refined, and brought up to date will all the modern conveniences you would expect for a romantic weekend together - including a full kitchen, heat and central air, comfortable beds, rocking chairs on the porches and more.

    This isn't a "luxury cabin rental", but it had everything we were looking for. If you are looking to get away from it all by relaxing in the middle of North Carolina's Smoky Mountains, there aren't many better ways to do it!

  • On the far end of Geneva Lake from Lake Geneva, WI lies a fantastic little resort that is emerging as one of the top romantic destinations in South Eastern Wisconsin. The Abbey Resort has just gone through a huge renovation and re-branding and is one of our favorite places for a romantic weekend escape.

  • the B and B market is very eager to promote the great diversity of opportunities that await guys chosing the B&B route over a traditional hotel. sends in a few suggestions that are outside what you might typically expect from a Bed and Breakfast experience.

  • For most Man Tripping readers, your idea of an awesome mancation destination is probably somewhere in the United States, possibly backpacking through Europe, or maybe a motorcycle tour across Australia. How about heading to Africa and helping people?

    Man Tripping reader Bernard Pollack from Border Jumpers sends in his thought about some positive mancation ideas in Africa.

  • boyd-mountain-cabinsTucked away in the Smoky Mountains of south western, North Carolina is a fantastic mancation destination just waiting for you to explore it.

    Haywood County is located just south of Asheville and has pretty much everything for a fantastic mancation - great fly fishing, awesome mountain roads that are perfect for driving a bike or a car, great food, awesome hiking trails, a casino, and even a chance to test your luck while gemstone mining.


  • I am sure you are familiar with the concept of an African Safari, but now you can do a safari in India too. You'll get a chance to tour India and see Bengal tigers as wel as visit cultural sites like New Delhi, Udaipur, and the Taj Mahal. If this sounds like a fun excuse for a mancation in India you should visit Rothschild Safaris.

  • When most people think of touring Civil War battlefields, they think of the south and Mid-Atlantic, but the war made its way out west to Missouri too. As I learned last week, there are a lot of things that Missouri offers for a great guys weekend - stay tuned for more!

  • Looking for a fun and exciting way to spend time with your son this year and you just aren't into golf or camping. How about a cultural father and son mancation to the UK? Visit England sends word of some cool ways to explore the world of Harry Potter, including Oxford University, Goathland Station, and more.

  • As fathers day approaches, it is time to share some fun father and son activities for that ultimate male bonding experience. Kentucky is one of our favorite states to visit and they sent us some cool activities that would make a great family friendly guys weekend this summer.

  • Bikes, Music, and some of the best scenery in the country await guys at the upcoming Rhythm and Ride festival coming up next month in Sun Valley, Idaho. (oh yeah, and Sun Valley boasts a ton of micro-breweries too!)
