From spa weekends to bachelorette getaways, women are always getting together and going away for the weekend to bond and maybe do a little guy-bashing. Why should the women have all the fun? Men can get together and have their own guys-only weekend getaways too. Whether it's a camping trip or a partying it up in Vegas, a guys' weekend help solidify friendship and brotherhood among the men.
Car Show Weekend
Take your car enthusiast buddies to Chicago for a weekend at the annual Chicago Auto Show, the largest automobile show in the country. The show, in February each year, features car manufacturers' latest models as well as futuristic electric models. The city of Chicago also offers plenty to do for a group of buddies. Have a beer and listen to blues artists at Buddy Guy's Legends or take a food tour of Chicago's best loved foods such as deep dish pizza and Chicago-style hot dogs.
Game Road Trip
Buy tickets, pack up the cooler and take a road trip with the guys to support your favorite football team. A road trip with the guys can be a great bonding time. Take turns driving and stop off at interesting sites along the way. Bring a mini grill so that you can tailgate in the parking lot of the football stadium with hundreds of other die-hard fans.
Sin City is the ultimate guys' paradise, with its casinos, women and open container laws. Live it up like kings and get a fantasy suite at the Palms Casino and Resort. The Hugh Hefner Sky Villa penthouse suite has four bedrooms and an outdoor pool hanging over the edge of the building, a glass elevator and an eight-foot round rotating bed. The Hardwood Suite has its own basketball court with Murphy beds on the court. Take a limo tour of the strip, play some blackjack at the Playboy Club and party in some of the hottest clubs in Vegas, such as Rain and Tao.
Pack your hiking gear and head to the woods for a camping trip with the guys. Set up camp and have a competition to see who can put their tents up the fastest. Camp somewhere near a lake so the guys can go fishing and boating. For lots of adventure options, camp at a national park like Yosemite National Park, where you can go rock climbing, white-water rafting, mountain biking, and horseback riding.
