Single and married men are booking guys weekend trips to celebrate milestones, explore new places and escape the day-to-day grind.
At one time, bachelor parties were once the only chance guys had to do their own thing. Now, they see the value in guys weekend getaways. In fact, Men’s Health notes multiple research studies prove “going away with the boys is good for both your mental and physical wellbeing.”
Out-of-town excursions with friends for two to three days, or even a week, have grown in popularity. Elite Jets, which offers concierge-level planning services for leisure and business travelers, often transports groups to weekend getaways.
Elite Jets has three private jet options for guys weekends:
Below are five destinations that are popular for guys weekend trips:
The Las Vegas Strip
Gambling may have put Las Vegas on the map, but the city continues gaining momentum for an array of activities. Inside casinos, visitors can find sports betting venues with more big-screen TVs than any sports bar. The city’s once-legendary dinner buffets have transitioned to fine dining establishments catering to foodies with exquisite tastes.
Many cities turn down after dark; Las Vegas turns it up. Throughout the Las Vegas Strip, there are nightclubs and performing arts venues that attract comedians, musicians and entertainers.
Golf in the Carolinas
The diverse topography in the Carolinas translates to diversity in golf courses.
North Carolina’s legendary Pinehurst offers nine perfectly sculpted 18-hole courses ringed by the region’s majestic pine trees. Each course was designed by legends of golf, including Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Payne Stewart and others.
At Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina, 10 of The Ocean Course’s 18 wind-swept holes hug the coastline, offering breathtaking views of the Atlantic. Many golfers consider it among the nation’s most challenging golf courses.
This 13-block historic street in New Orleans, famous for its late-night bar scene, has evolved. In addition to drinking establishments, there are restaurants serving gulf-inspired cuisine, jazz clubs and plenty of opportunities for people-watching. After dark, ghost tours are a fun, interactive way to learn about the city’s history.
Dude Ranch out West
The movie City Slickers gave a humorous look into the world of dude ranches. These days, dude ranches are popular forms of agritourism as “city slickers” temporarily trade hustle and bustle to experience life a century ago. Horseback riding, fishing, hunting and hiking are the most popular activities and plentiful in Wyoming. Accommodations there range from rustic to uber-luxury.
Hiking the Appalachian Trail
The Appalachian Trail spans 2,190 miles from Georgia to Maine, with Virginia claiming more than one-fourth of the entire trail. The trail’s elevation in Virginia ranges from 265 to 5,500 feet and offers spectacular views of dense vegetation, rolling hills and picturesque farmlands.
