Best Guys Weekend Vacation Spot
The guy at work in the cube next to you just pinned up pics from his surfing trip. Man, does he seem relaxed. The woman who talks about her cat all day isn’t even getting under his skin! Time you planned your own guys getaway. Talk to the guys and get a bro trip to the Smokies on the books! With a little planning you can pack a trip with full of outdoor adventures and male bonding that all your buddies can afford.
First up, ya gotta go off road. Mtn Trax in Townsend TN will hook you up. You can take a guided off-road tour or rent some street-legal UTVs for tooling around the mountains on your own! Give them a call at 865-365-8654. Down South Outdoor Adventures (865-973-0005) offers ATV and UTV rentals, and can give you a line on the best places to cut loose in the wide open!
If you’d rather go big or go home, Smoky Mountain Jeep Rentals will put you behind the wheel of a ton of big fun! Go off road or take the paved route all over the mountains. You can reach them at 865-366-7063.
Kan Am Fun of Gatlinburg (912-270-5222) can get you in a unique “slingshot” vehicle, a Can-Am or a Honda UTV to give your mancation that extra kick! They too can give you a line on best places to enjoy their vehicles and how to be safe in the process.
If you’re into watersports, we’ve got whitewater rafting adventure par excellence here in the Smokies! Smoky Mountain Outdoors offers guided adventures through class III and IV rapids!
Call 1-800-771-7238 to schedule your roll down the Pigeon River today. There’s a guide in every raft, so if you’re inexperienced, no problem! They’ve partnered with CLIMB Works to offer a ziplining/rafting package deal that’ll get your blood pumping for sure.
If your day-to-day life is exciting enough and the more meditative sports suit your fancy, you can bring your clubs and your fishing rod to the Smokies for a guys getaway better geared to gear you down. Bent Creek Golf Course in Gatlinburg bills itself as “all at once challenging and relaxing.” This par 72 course will give you a chance to polish your game while recovering from the stresses of the real world. If fishing’s your game, then fly-fish in the Smokies you must! The professionals at Rocky Top Outfitters will take you where you can reel them in! Put on your waders and drink in the fresh air in the midst of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park!
Finally, if you like the outdoors at all, you should hike while you’re here. If you’re in good physical shape and really want to challenge yourself (and take some great photos to prove you did), hike to Gregory Bald via the Gregory Ridge Trail. You’ll gain more than 3,000 feet in altitude during this strenuous hike. Make sure you’ve got plenty of water! Gregory Bald is a peaceful meadow approximating ten acres. Take some time for a picnic and a little rest! You’ll certainly be tired. Plan to sleep well the night after you do this one.
A cabin in the Smokies is the ideal starting place for a guys getaway. Skip the shopping. Leave the ladies at home! Guaranteed to become a tradition.
