Father’s Day may be over, but summer is a great time to get away with Dad or just plan a “mancation” with your son or your guy pals. makes it really easy to find unique things to do, so here is their list of manly getaways you might enjoy this summer:

Get Your Motor Running – Ah, the thrill of the race! Put dad in the stadium for a weekend of car racing at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca! Then let him sleep with the sound of the ocean outside his window at the Captain’s Inn at Moss Landing, central coast, California. Only 12 miles from the back gate of the raceway, this inn offers packages for Champ Car World Series, Grand Am Series, the AMA Superbike, and the Monterey Sports Car Championships. The race and room package includes two “3-day” admission and paddock passes to the race track.

Easy Rider – The sprawling ranch-style Brookside Mountain Mist Inn Bed and Breakfast, in Waynesville, North Carolina, has a Mancations Special that appeals to the Peter Fonda in all men. Rent a Harley and take a ride on the wild side down one of the most famous drives on the East Coast, “The Tail of the Dragon.” With hundreds of hairpin turns and an eye-popping view of the Smoky Mountains, dad needs to be on his game. Especially if he is going to take advantage of the guest privileges he can enjoy teeing off at one of the three nine-hole golf courses at the private country club this inn has arrangements with.

Fish Are Jumpin’ – Some dads dream of solitude: trout fly fishing in a crystal clear stream, the crests of the Sangro de Cristo Mountains towering in the distance, an occasional eagle soaring overhead. Whether a beginner who wants to catch trout on a fly rod, or an intermediate angler, the Martinez y Ewens Anasazi Ranch provides instruction and guided fishing for fathers that dream of experiencing the unspoiled and rustic high country of Penasco, New Mexico.

Daddy, Get Your Gun – Dads with itchy fingers can head on down to the scenic Atwood Lake Region of Dellroy, Ohio, for a guy getaway that features clay pigeon shooting. The Whispering Pines Bed and Breakfast gets you set up with discount coupons for shooting, fishing and even eating a juicy steak at the locals’ favorite bistro. Back at the inn, join the card game at the fire pit, and have a late night snack with the gang of guests on hand.

Your Dad is Smokin! – The secrets of a superb meat marinade are revealed by the skilled innkeepers/chefs at the Holladay House Bed and Breakfast in Orange, Virginia. Marinating, smoking, and eating a manly steak is only part of the fun of their Father’s Day Man-cation Weekend. The inn declares itself “frou-frou free,” and promises hungry man breakfasts laden with meat and cheese, meat smoking demonstrations, dinner with local micro-brewed beer and bourbon, and a list of outdoor activities to help work up an appetite. Arrangements for skydiving, golf, and other activities are easy to add to the weekend, or dad can just hang around the kitchen and glean more cooking tips to take home with him. offers Father’s Day packages for Dad’s everywhere or let him plan is own getaway with a travel gift certificate.
