Getting away with the guys for a weekend is one of the best ways to recharge. There are an unlimited number of destinations both near and far where you’ll find mancation-ready accommodations, from rustic retreats to all-inclusive resorts. The best guys’ trips offer a mix of adventurous excursions with good food and drink. Whether it’s cooked over a fire or in a five-star kitchen is up to your group!
Use these ideas to inspire your next guys’ weekend.
Explore a National Park
With 58 to choose from, the guys won’t have a problem finding a national park that fits their criteria. In Yosemite National Park, you can hike, fish and rock climb throughout the park’s almost 750,000 acres. Skip the overlook at Grand Canyon National Park and backpack, bike or raft through the canyon instead. For a central location, Michigan’s Isle Royale National Park offers camping, watersports and hiking.
Try a Watersport
There’s no time like a guys’ weekend to try something new. Why not head to the water for a couple of days? Try one of these ideas:
- Deep sea fishing
- Scuba diving
- Staying on a houseboat
- White water rafting
Hit the Green
Meet the guys at a golf course for a relaxing weekend in the sun. If golf isn’t your group’s thing, road trip together to a major league stadium or watch a race in Daytona, Indianapolis or Talladega.
You can also hit the slopes at a ski resort that has it all. Ski or snowboard all day and enjoy the comforts of the nearest town at night. Head to Vail for 195 trails in the Rocky Mountains. Park City and Killington are both awesome guys’ weekend ideas too.
Sip Craft Drinks
If you’re all whiskey lovers, head to Louisville, Kentucky. When you get tired of the drinks, there’s also zip lining, arcade bars, Louisville-style pizza, soccer and baseball teams, and more! For guys who prefer beer, check out Asheville, North Carolina. Here, you’ll find dozens of breweries, as well as the Biltmore Estate, plenty of hiking, eclectic art and lots of good food.
