    Tired of the same old resort scene and looking to take your next Mexican mancation to the next level? How about trying a vacation villa rental instead? Villa Milagro writes in with some info about their newest Rental in Troncones Mexico - located on the Mexican Riviera, just north of Ixtapa.

  • 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.

  • Mississippi - the Land of Elvis and Great Golf Bargins?

    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!

  • Outdoor Adventures, Wine, and History: Biltmore Mancation

    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 destinations in the United States - Asheville, NC.

  • Hawaii's Equus Hotel offers Polo Package

    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...

  • Boyd Mountain Cabins Review in Haywood County

    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!

  • Doing Good, African Travel Volunteer Opportunities

    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?

  • A Haywood County North Carolina Mancation

    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.

  • Westport Missouri Civil War Battlefield Tours

    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!

  • Help Welcome the River City Casino in St. Louis

    mt-newswireA casino opening is almost always a big event (after all they want to do whatever they can to attract you and your money!). Today's opening at the River City Casino in St. Louis looks to be no different.

    They are doing it St. Louis style, with Clydesdales, baseball stars, vintage cars, and what is being described as St. Louis' Largest Slot Pull.

     

  • Lake Placid Bobsled and Skeleton Experience

    Think that you have to be an Olympian to try the bobsled? Guess again! At the Lake Placid Bobsled Experience, you can try Skeleton or Bobsled and experience the thrill while staying safe because of the professional driver and brakeman.

    I had the chance to visit this place with my dad a few years ago and had a blast. This is absolutely one of the coolest things to do in Lake Placid. While it isn't the cheapest mancation adventure, I would totally recommend it to anyone looking for a once in a lifetime experience.

  • Cowboys in Florida? Check out the Creek Ranch

    mt-newswireJust got word from the Creek Ranch in central Florida that they have just opened what sounds like a fantastic opportunity to play cowboy.

    Plus they have a bunch of other activities including 4x4 tours and it is only an hour away from the attractions in Orlando.

     

  • Bud, Bill & Jim’s Italian Cooking School Adventure

    ca-camoneThis story was sent into us by Bud, Bill, and Jim who just came back from an Italian Vacation and a visit to the La Tavola Marche Cooking School. This is a perfect example of how you can always find time for a guys weekend or mini mancation - even exploring a part of the world with other couples.

  • Park City Utah - Mancation Highlights

    park-city-mancationThere are lots of great ski resort towns that offer a chance to rub elbows with celebrities, enjoy great steaks, drink a few locally brewed beers, and enjoy fantastic powder, but one in particular that stands out is Park City, Utah. Park City might be best known for the Park City Mountain Resort ski area, but the town also features two others - Deer Valley and The Canyons Resort.

    Combined, the three resorts plus downtown Park City offers a fantastic destination for your next ski mancation.

     

  • Squaw Valley - Ski, Party, and More!

    squaw-valleyLake Tahoe is one of my favorite ski destinations with some of the best places for skiing and other activities. If you are considering visiting the area, one resort that shouldn't be missed is Squaw Valley, site of the 1960 Winter Olympic games.

    Today, Squaw still features some of the best skiing that Tahoe can offer, but also stands out as a fantastic spring skiing destination.

  • Grandeur of the Seas Review

    grandeurGrandeur of the Seas is an older ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet of cruise ships, but it still packs a lot of great opportunities for guys looking for inexpensive mancation options.

    While there were the expected bars, nightclub, pools etc. what really impressed me was that Royal Caribbean is actively marketing their spa services to us guys! Heather from Chick Vacations was disappointed though because the special "men's package" was actually significantly cheaper than the individual services that she was offered off the menu.

  • St. Pete Beach Mancation Ideas Roundup

    tradewinds-mancationIf you haven't been here before, St. Pete Beach is located just south of Tampa and St. Petersburg and has a ton of great stuff for guys looking for a quick escape. While suprisingly winter is a slow time down here, I had a great time and would absolutely recommend that you consider it for your next guys weekend too!

    While sipping a Miami Vice at one of Tradewinds's several pool-side bars, I had a chance to chat with bartender Garrick Roe and some of the guys about their favorite places to go and things to do.

  • Grand Ole Opry and Nashville Music Scene

    second-fiddleIf you are considering a visit to Nashville for your next guys weekend, there is a good chance that you are a country music fan. Make sure that the Grand Ole Opry is on your list of things to do!

    Man Tripping just got back from a tour of not just the current Grand Ole Opry House, but also the Ryman Auditorium (former home of the Opry), Bluebird Cafe, Country Music Hall of Fame, and we even recorded a song at the historic RCA Studio B where Elvis and tons of others have recorded songs.

  • Cruising the Seven Seas - thoughts on Men and Cruises

    equinox-celebrity-bowCruise ships offer a fantastic opportunity for men looking for anything from a basic lay back and enjoy the ride to the pinnacle of adventure travel excitement. Unfortunately it seems that this form of vacation has been ignored by many guys in favor of more land-based destinations such as all-inclusive resorts and places like Vegas.

    Today though, with the economy the way it is, there really isn't a better, more cost effective way to do a mancation or even an extended guys weekend with a 3-4 day cruise.

    Think of it, you have bars, transportation, casinos, food, entertainment, extreme sports, even fitness activities, and seminars like beer and wine tastings on board - and often at only $100 per day!
