One out of four millennial men is either planning to travel or is actually on the road right now, according to a survey conducted by the Solo Travel Society. However, reports show 75% of American women are taking solo journeys versus their counterparts. So, why is that? While plenty of men are avid travellers, now’s the time to step up your travel game and make your next trip all about bonding with the boys. Except for this time, visit the sand dunes of Arizona, discover the beauty of Cuba, or even explore the backdrop scenes of your favourite TV series.
Whether you’re looking for a quick guy’s trip, father-son getaway, a solo escape, or even the ultimate bachelor party – a guy’s vacation never goes out of style. Here’s how to make your next guy trip the best one yet.
Explore the GoT Scenes in Malta
While you may not have heard of Malta until recently, the small Mediterranean island nation is the backdrop for countless scenes on the Game of Thrones. However, for those heading off to visit Malta, there’s much more to it than that. Listed on UNESCO, the capital of Valletta will be the EU Capital of Culture for 2018. Thus, there will be hundreds of events and festivals offering discounts throughout the year, including feasts in villages across the country to honour each patron saint. Not to mention, Malta’s island of Gozo has some of the best scuba spots in Europe, including the famous Blue Hole.
Experience Mardi Gras at New Orleans
Despite the tragic Hurricane Katrina in 2005, New Orleans has jumped back stronger than ever and reclaimed the joie de vivre with more reasons to celebrate. This year will mark the city’s 200th anniversary with special events and exhibits about the long history at the Historic Tall Ships of America, Jazz Fest, and Crescent exhibit at the Old Ursuline Convent. That’s all in addition to the usual Mardi Gras parade.
Enjoy the New World of Old Havana
Cuba is, of course, the mecca of Cigars and Rum. However, there’s more to the country than just Gangster history and the revolution of Fidel Castro. The beautiful beaches, clear blue water, friendly people, and Havana nights are what make the country truly memorable. Not to mention – there are plenty of streets with live music to enjoy while you sip on craft beer.
So, if you’re looking to bond with your mates outside the streets of Vegas, consider these options to make your next guy’s trip the best one yet.
