Whether you choose to explore busy cities, or spend some time out in the wilderness, a road trip with the guys is a great way to get away from it all. Here are OROGOLD’s picks of the top dudes’ road trip options around the country.
Las VegasLas Vegas is one of the ultimate destinations to visit on a dudes’ road trip. If you want to combine the high-stakes excitement of Vegas with some quiet time in the country, OROGOLD recommends arranging your road trip to include the two and a half hour drive from Vegas to Death Valley. Alternatively, you could also drive from LA to Vegas, making the most of the isolated stretches of the I-15, which cuts through the Nevada Desert, to keep your speedometer at a high constant. Once in Las Vegas, there is so much to see and do, no matter what your interests may be. While your time spent in the city may be action-packed, OROGOLD recommends setting aside a few hours to visit the Canyon Ranch Spa, taking advantage of their many male-orientated treatments.
The Maine Beer Trail
While the Maine Beer Trail may be absolutely perfect for a road trip with the guys, keep in mind that the person driving will not be able to have quite as much fun as the other passengers! The Maine Beer Trail was established in 2009, and connects around 50 different craft breweries. When beginning the trail, you will be given a map and a checklist, with ten brewery visits earning you a free hat, and twenty brewery visits earning you a free t-shirt. From the award-winning McGovern’s Oatmeal Stout at the Belfast Bay Brewing Company to the Belgian style brews from the Oxbow Brewing Company to the ice cream featuring the brews from the Penobscot Bay Brewery, the choices are endless, but the Maine Beer Trail passport that you receive contains descriptions of each brewery, to help you to pick the ones that appeal to you the most.
Glacier National Park
Located in Montana, by the US-Canadian border, the Glacier National Park has one of the best roads for driving in the entire country. The road is called the Going to the Sun Road, and combines steep, winding curves with different altitude changes and some of the country’s most spectacular scenery. There are many different points of interest that you can stop off at and explore further, such as the Saint Mary’s Falls Trailhead, the Logan Pass and Saint Mary’s Lake. There are also plenty of activities around the park to keep you busy, from hiking to biking to ranger-led programs.
A dudes’ road trip is a great way to bond with the guys while seeing parts of the country that you may not have otherwise visited. From taking a drive along the Maine Beer Trail to road-tripping to Las Vegas for a weekend of excitement, these road trip options are ideal for when you want to get out and about with the guys.
