Group Planner: Steak and Bourbon, A Man’s Trip


For each year, a man’s trip must come. Fostering a bro-tastic weekend requires A) the perfect activity, and B) selecting the right wheels from charter operators listed on BusRates.com. Picking the perfect wheels for your group can accentuate the outing. It’ll allow you to set a tone for your trip or excursion, mitigate losing that one person who manages to go astray and keeping everyone safe at the same time. Below you’ll find our list of some guy-tailored fun, along with our suggestions for how to get there in proper fashion.

Put a Fork in It

Suggestion: Steaks in Chicago, New York, Kansas City, anywhere in Texas. Men and meat call for luxury. Loosen the business tie and roll up the cuffs as you lean back in captains chairs aboard an executive coach.

Made in the USA, Barrel-Aged

Suggestion: Celebrate bourbon at the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. A deluxe motor coach or full-size charter bus will get you everywhere you need to go along the bourbon trail safely and comfortably for large groups.

Drafts on Tap

Suggestion: Lift pints in Portland at one of their many beer festivals. Maybe opt for a more intimate traveling experience in a minibus with close friends for quick and easy loading and unloading at even the best-kept secret watering holes.

The Need for Speed

Suggestion: Go to the races be it the car in Indy or horse Belmont. An executive or day coach would put the outing in high gear even in between races and off the track with its comfortable lounge and office interiors.

Music to Your Ears

Suggestion: Listen to jazz in NOLA, blues in Memphis, everything in Austin. This could go many different ways—all board the yellow school bus for a conservative budget, go straight for les bon temps with a party bus or travel like a rockstar in an overnight excursion with a sleeper or entertainer bus.

Flop a Flush

Suggestion: Lose, we mean win big in Vegas baby, Atlantic City, Reno or even a Mississippi gambling boat. To win big, you’ve got to play big—ante up for a full-size limo bus with a minibar onboard (but drink responsibly!)

Fore!

Suggestion: Golf be it Pebble Beach or Ponte Vedra. A golf outing could run the full range of BusRates.com catalog of charter bus types. Go big for larger groups like reunions; mini-bus for more local travel and groups under 40; school bus for a “Caddyshack” themed trip; or an executive coach or limo bus for a high-end excursion.

Regardless of which way you’ll roll, you’re making the right choice by chartering a bus. This way you’ll have more mobility for your crew at a reasonable rate, while also keeping everyone safe (not to mention the environmental impact you’ll have by traveling as a group).
