Travel ideas for mancations, guys weekends, and romantic getaways
  • Rock and Roll Days Inn Chicago

    days-inn-chicago-exteriorWhat would you say if I told you that I found the ultimate mancation hotel in Chicago - and it was a Days Inn. Wait, what? Did I just recommend that you consider staying at a Days Inn, rather than a swanky downtown hotel like the Trump?

    Yes, yes I did. This hotel has a rock and roll heritage, gangsters stayed here in the roaring 20's, it is walking distance to Wrigley Field, there are tons of bars and music halls nearby, and they even have a spa for men right next door!

  • The Palazzo Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas

    Vegas may be one of those places that is overwhelming when you try to figure out where to go for the ultimate mancation. We had the opportunity recently to explore a fantastic choice that we heartily recomend you consider as well, The Palazzo.

    In addition to being a great casino hotel, The Palazzo is also home to Lagassi Stadium, which may well be the pinacle of perfection when it comes to sports bars!

Fortunately, I have just the remedy for you: a weekend in Palmdale with just the guys. So call up your buddies and leave the wife at home, because this is dudes’ day out.

    Just a couple hours east of Chicago and almost the same distance from Detroit lies a wonder area just waiting for couples planning a romantic weekend. South West Michigan is a destination that continues to impress both Heather and I.

  • Cleveland Mancation - Beer, Sports, and Manly Food

    Cleveland is a great town - yes, it is also the "mistake on the lake" and the place where a river caught fire years ago. Don't let that deter you though, this town really has a TON of stuff for an ultimate guys weekend or mancation. While my wife is from Cleveland and I drive by / through the area on a fairly regular basis, I really had no idea exactly how much cool stuff for guys this town has - and we touched only a small part of it during our tour hosted by Positively Cleveland.

  • Indy Racing Experience: My Ride With Arie

    Just imagine being given a ride in an Indy racing car by a guy who’s won two Indy 500s.

    We arrived at Chicagoland Speedway at 12:30 p.m. and I went to the Credentials trailer.  I showed my picture ID and was handed three pages of legal paperwork and various waivers of liability to read and sign. I was already wondering if maybe I was in for more of a thrill than I bargained for.

  • Tequila Tasting Lessons with Casa Noble's Jose Hermosillo

    We've looked at rums, whiskies, and even vodka over the past few months, but one fantastic spirit has escaped us. That of course, is tequila. Part of my reluctance to embrace tequila was that my familiarity with it was shaped primarily by experiences during college and spring break type situations where tequila was cheap, plentiful and tasted like shit.

  • Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay Review

    Fresh back from a stay at Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay, I have mixed reviews. The Preferred Club has all the foundations for a wonderful, romantic get-away, but the newly opened resort is still a bit rough.

    Our first impression was WOW! My husband and I were greeted immediately from our taxi with warm hospitality. We were whisked away from the main entrance via golf-cart to registration, offered a glass of bubbly and a cold towel to refresh ourselves. By the time we were led to our swim-out Jr. suite, we really felt like VIPs.

  • Kensington Antarctica Adventure Mancation

    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.
