WARREN COUNTY, NY  (April 2, 2008) – For many years resorts and vacation destinations have focused on pampering women and promoting girlfriend getaway packages. However, a recent paradigm shift has paved the way for more masculine vacationing: the mancation.  


A mancation is a male-only vacation featuring “guy” activities, including sports, hunting and fishing, camping and most of all, relaxing and spending time with buddies. For men looking to catch up with old college friends, needing some quality time away from the ladies in their life, or simply looking to revert to more primordial roots for a few days, the Lake George Area has something for every group of guys.


Men looking to disappear into the proverbial “middle of nowhere” or reconnect with the great outdoors can do so in the spectacular mountains of Upstate New York. Hiking and camping in the Adirondack Mountains are always the perfect answer to a weekend away.


Great outdoorsmen will revel in the wilderness of the Adirondacks, hiking pristine trails, fishing Lake George or one of the 120 other lakes in the area, paddling back-country streams, discovering secluded swimming holes – some complete with jumping swings and hidden mountain waterfalls, and/or hunting as seasons and locations permit.  


Thrill seekers can battle whitewater rapids of the Upper Hudson River Gorge or Moose River, soar through the air at a high ropes adventure course, roam the wilds on ATVs or mountain bikes, scale the heights rock climbing or investigate caves spelunking. For those who would rather experience their thrills vicariously, rodeos are just the right pastime.


Guys in need of some well deserved rest and relaxation can also make the Lake George Area in New York’s Adirondacks their ultimate destination. Whether it’s sailing on Lake George, playing golf at a variety of courses, dining in the area’s wide array of restaurants, or playing volleyball on the beach, the area offers something for everyone.
