5 Great Guys' Trips

Posted by YMT Vacations on Jul 10, 2018 9:18:00 AM


Family time, date nights, and your everyday responsible life is terrific, sure, but it’s sometimes very important to get away with the lads. Kick back, talk (or not) about your goals, your concerns, and whether LeBron could ever surpass MJ as basketball’s true Greatest of All Time, on these 5 perfect Guys Trips:

Head Outdoors in Zion National Park—More than 200 million years ago, the Virgin River cut through Utah’s burnt-red Navajo sandstone to create Zion. With soaring monoliths and dramatic buttes, this “temple of God” is a wonder of nature. Take a hike or wander through the desert landscape. Zion is just one of the stops on YMT Vacations’ National Parks of the Golden West Tour which includes the “Mighty Five” and the Grand Canyon.

Throw Back a Pint in Dublin—With more than 1,000 bars in the city, the dark “Dublin gargle” is always on tap. Enjoy a pint o’ Guinness, tapping your toes to an Irish band, and practicing the gift of the gab with locals. The Best of Ireland Tour takes you from St. Patrick’s Cathedral to the Cliffs of Moher, from the Ring of Kerry to Giant’s Causeway. Just make sure to save room for another round.

Explore the Last Frontier—From the bow of your cruise ship you can hear the sound of thunder as calving glaciers drop giant slabs of ice into the water. Alaska is home to more than 100,000 glaciers and some of the planet’s most fascinating wildlife. On a YMT Vacations Alaskan cruise tour you can search for pods of migrating whales, walk onto the Athabasca Glacier and sail the Inside Passage.

Explore NOLA—New Orleans has a flavor all its own. From second line parades to jazz in the Vieux Carre’, cable car rides to toe-tapping Cajun dancing, there’s always a spicy little something extra in the Big Easy. After enjoying the tastes of one of the world’s best culinary cities, stop by the Roosevelt for a Sazerac, America’s first cocktail. The New Orleans & Western Caribbean Cruise and the Southern Music and Dixieland Tour both make stops in this exciting city.

Experience the Wild West – Buffalo Bill Cody was the star of his own wild west show, and a major contributor to the romantic image of the “Wild West.” Visit the flamboyantly mustached cowboy showman’s museum to learn about one of the most interesting periods in American history. On the Rocky Mountains & Western Frontiers itinerary you’ll also get to see Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse, visit the site of Little Big Horn and see Old Faithful at Yellowstone National Park.

These are just a few of our favorite trips to take with your best guys. But, we do have an entire collection to choose from—try cruising through the Panama Canal or visiting the battlefields of Gettysburg, seeing the Great Barrier Reef or enjoying a whisky flight at the Jack Daniels Distillery.
