Travel ideas for mancations, guys weekends, and romantic getaways
  • 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!)

  • The Alaskan cruise market is heating up now that Carnival has moved in. Starting this summer, Carnival will be joining Princess and Holland America to offer cruises from Seattle to ports in Alaska. If you are looking for an Alaskan mancation but don't want to rough it in the wilderness, a cruise might be just the thing. Don't worry though, with their "Just for Alaska" menu you will still be able to enjoy fresh Alaskan fish and other native ingredients.

  • Looking for the perfect Father’s Day getaway? Treat Dad to some free golf at Keystone Resort in Colorado (60 miles west of Denver). With the “Stay and Play” package, families can stay at the Keystone Lodge & Spa and receive two rounds of golf at the renowned championship Ranch Course completely free of charge.

  • Looking for an excuse to visit South Dakota?

    If so and if you like mountain biking, film festivals, and music, the Fat Tire Festival may be just the thing for you.

  • As you may know, The Abbey is one of our favorite resorts in the midwest. Fantastic people, a great location (at the laid back side of Geneva Lake), and they even have a resident Pit Boss, Matt Whiteford as well as all around great food, a fantastic man-friendly spa, and they even have a cigar lounge.(read our Abbey Report)

    If that wasn't enough reason to come up here, they are going to be holding a BBQ Weekend on May 22. I just had a pulled pork sandwich last week during my visit and let me tell you, it is worth the drive!

  • red-bull-air-race1The awesome Red Bull Air Race is coming back to Windsor this summer! The race will be held June 5 &6 as the 4th stop of the 8-race championship.

    Even better news is that the City of Windsor, Ontario has signed a 2-year agreement so it will be back in 2011 as well.

  • Wisconsin may be the land of beer, but Michiganders know something about suds too!

    The Michigan Brewers Guide now has an "Enthusiast" program that features VIP tours of some of the top breweries in the state including: The Livery (Benton Harbor), Saugatuck Brewing Company (Douglas), Founders Brewing Co. (Grand Rapids), Arcadia Brewing Co (Battle Creek), DarkHorse Brewing Co (Kalamazoo), and New Holland Brewing Tour (Holland).

  • Northern Michigan isn't just a winter playground and neither is Crystal Mountain. If you are looking for an excuse to make your way up north, this might be it. Beer from 50 different Michigan microbreweries, brats, golf, and of course Crystal Mountain's Alpine Slide.

    We had a chance to visit Crystal Mountain last summer and had a blast. While it might seem out of the way, it is an easy 5-hour drive from Detroit and Chicago.
