good place for a men's weekend

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
ok, a friend and I are looking to go on a weekend trip. it could be anywhere in North America or maybe the caribibian. the perfect idea would be someplace where we could kayack, canoe, atv, bike, snowmobile or something like that in the day, and then have a reasonably comfortable hotel and pretty good food.

we dont need strippers or gambling, or drinking of that kind of stuff.

any suggestions?

What time of year? Maybe Vail for snow stuff? I've never been but I hear Jackson Hole is quite the place these days. Seattle is also supposed to be known for quick access to some outdoor stuff, isn't it?

oh, and we don't ski or scuba dive, so anything taht we can learn easly would work.

as to time of year, I guess we are pretty flexible.

You can do a lot of that stuff in Vegas, as cliche as that might be.

Austin Tx. Nice place to visit in the fall, lots of good food and music. Sixth St, hiking trails, biking and the river, plenty to do.

I like anywhere in the Rockies in the fall. It's quiet because it's in between summer season and ski season. Hotels are reasonable, some are even cheap because it's considered low season. Restaurants are easy to get into, a few close down during this period. Foliage and weather is beautiful. Anywhere from Boulder to Aspen. Maybe Lake Louise or Banff if you want to go into Canada.
Try paragliding in the mountains. First time you do it tandem with an instructor. It's great thing to do.

Jackson Hole, WY?

How about Lake Tahoe? Until November you could boat, kayak, hike, mountain bike and then stay at a nice place like the Ritz Carlton http://www.ritzcarlton.com/en/Properties/LakeTahoe/Default.htm?utm_campaign=09147&src=ps After mid November it is pretty much a skiing resort.

Another option is to stay in Squaw Valley -take the tram up to the top of the mountain, hike up there, etc. Beautiful views. Golf, etc...

I like to go sport fishing with guys. To me that is a great get-away. You can do that from many places-San Diego, Cabo, etc.

cool, keep the ideas coming. Austin sounds good - maybe bike durng the day, eat bar-b-que and mexican and listen to music at night.

Hawaii would be interesting.

A hop around the Virgin Islands would be fun.

Go to the Caribbean and learn to scuba. It's awesome.

I third this recommendation. I was down there for a month in May, both St. John and St. Thomas. It's a lot of fun.

Don't laugh: Been up to the North Shore in Minnesota? Stay in Duluth or nearby... Gunflint Trail... one of the lodges or cabins... Lake Superior, trails, snowmobiles etc... gorgeous and off the path... it's about a 3-4 hour drive north of the Twin Cities airport however.

Best time though unless you are really into winter outdoor activities (and cold) is really over the next few weeks. And really- you probably want about a week.

GT - Right now, Acadia Nat'l Park on Mt. Desert Island in Maine. Hike, mountain bike, kayak - there's a variety of places to stay, good food available, and it is an awesome place. Very doable over a (long? weekend. Foliage on the way up, lobsters, etc. - you can't go wrong.

I agree. it's best to bring an escort with you. Better quality control that way.
