Mancations: Weekend Getaway with the Boys

Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion, such as an engagement or promotion, or just want to spend some time with your best buds, a weekend getaway lets you leave the stress of everyday life behind for a few days. It can be a bit difficult, however, trying to find a unique and fun mancation that you and your friends deserve. Thankfully, the following ideas can help you plan the perfect getaway that you’ll remember for a lifetime.

Take it to the Beach

For those who love the water and the sports that go along with it, consider planning a trip to the beach. For added luxury, rent an ocean front house for the weekend so you can enjoy that ocean view all hours of the day and night. One of the great things about this idea is that there are a slew of different beaches all over the world and you can choose one that is closest to you for added convenience or experience an area you’ve never been to before.


Catch your own Food

If you and your friends are the hunter and gather types, why not plan an outdoor adventure filled with fishing and quail hunting South Carolina. Bring your own hunting and fishing tools or rent gear that you’ve always wanted to try out. You can have a friendly competition to see who can catch the most fish, or make a rule that you eat what you catch.

Roughing It

There may be nothing more synonymous with masculinity than camping out in the wilderness. It also gives you and your best buds a chance to reconnect without the distractions of the modern world. Cook by a campfire and sleep under the stars. If you want to camp without actually roughing it, there are thousands of cabins all over the United States that provides that forest view with the modern amenities.

Set Sail on the High Seas

If you really want to go all out on your mancation, why not go on a cruise. Cruises can last a few days to several weeks, and provides a slew of entertainment, food choices, drinks, and activities while sailing to the designated ports. Once at the port, guests are typically allowed to get off the ship and visit that area for several hours. Keep in mind, however, that cruises are rather expensive and not everyone can afford the cost.
