Sometimes, you and your guy friends need a getaway -- a chance to either relax and unwind or be active and adventurous. Bros are always looking for new and exciting ways to hang out. If your get-togethers have been feeling uninspired recently, it might finally be time for a bro trip.
According to the Urban Dictionary, a “bro trip” is defined as, “A vacation, especially a road trip, with a bro [or group of bros] for the purpose of recreation and building camaraderie. It is often used as a means of escaping female companionship”. Bro trip is also synonymous with “brocation” and “mancation”.
One of the biggest things to worry about when brainstorming a bro trip is pleasing everyone in the group. If your posse is tough to please, planning a vacation with a group of guys can be a logistical nightmare. But whether it’s a brocation, a bachelor’s party, or just an excuse to hang out, these getaway ideas can help! Here are a few tips and destinations for your next bro trip.

Here are a few final tips to help you make your trip even better! Some of these can be done while you choose a destination, while some should be saved for after.
- Plan to go to a location that can cater to every group member’s interests. Your group of friends knows each other best, so compromise on destinations to make everyone happy.
- Get everyone to research local activities at your travel destination. Find fun and adventurous things to do. Bro-friendly activities include everything from rock climbing and sports events, to golf courses and breweries.
- Invite bros only. Inviting a casual friend or acquaintance can spell disaster. Don’t bring someone you might get sick of after a few days!
- Bring a video camera or take a video on your phone. You’ll want to document your journey, and you might even want to make a short compilation to share with your friends.
