Have you just agreed to make arrangements for a fun guy’s weekend? The options are only limited by your imagination (and budget!). From race car driving experiences to hockey games, check out the events taking place near your final destination. Follow these recommendations from the travel professionals to ensure your guy’s weekend is one filled with positive memories.
The first step is to determine your dates and your budget. For transportation and accommodation purposes, confirm your headcount. A terrific option for accommodations is taking advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and secure reservations through the killer deals on rats offered by Hotels.com. Another option for accommodations is the increasingly popular choice of private home or apartment rentals. There are several reputable websites that list vacation home rentals. Be sure to connect directly with the owner either via email or phone to confirm the specifics about the property. Unfortunately, no industry is immune to scammers and this includes the online private vacation home rental industry.
Depending on the distance to your destination, either book flights early or have your car serviced for a road trip. Another increasingly popular option for long distance travel is taking a train. While this is generally the option that takes the most time, the train ride in and of itself can be a fun part of the guy’s weekend. Reserve a compartment for your group and you’ll have privacy throughout your journey.
Finally, consider the events and activities available at your destination. For the best options it’s recommended to book as early as possible to secure tickets and preferred seating. The same applies to restaurant reservations. Some of the most popular dining destinations book well in advance. Plan to take plenty of photos, partake in adventures not available in your hometown and make a commitment to continue the tradition of booking a guy’s weekend away on an annual basis. Best of luck on your fun filled weekend!
