Whether it’s a special occasion, your best mate’s birthday or you just want to enjoy some time with your friends, there’s nothing better than a day out with your mates to let off steam and have fun. From camping and paintballing to experiences you’ll never forget, here are some ideas for planning the perfect guy’s day out.
Check out the Races
Whether you live locally to a racecourse or you’re up for a bit of a road trip, a day out watching horse racing with the lads is a memorable experience, if you decide to go, make sure you check out racing tips for the day before you go. Royal Ascot takes place in June and is one of the highlights of the racing season, with fantastic horses, skilled jockeys and a host of great entertainment to enjoy for a truly enjoyable day out.
Go on a Camping Trip
Heading out into the great outdoors is a brilliant way to de-stress, so why not turn a day’s hiking into a camping trip? It’s a guy’s getaway staple and can be as complex as you want it to be. There’s nothing better than cracking open a beer in an off-the-grid destination and having some laughs with friends, all while building fires and experiencing the wilderness.
Take Part in a Drinking Tour
If you’re up for something a bit livelier, a brewery tour or a bar crawl is a great idea. There are numerous options around the country, so you’re sure to find something that’s local to the group, plus you can combine hanging out with the lads with sampling some fantastic beers – the ideal combination. You could stay local to your hometown or make a bigger trip of it and explore somewhere new.
Every man loves a bit of healthy competition, so why not take the guys to the nearest golf course for a few rounds of golf? You could even up the stakes and turn it into a tournament, keeping track of the scores along the way. It’s guaranteed to be a fun and memorable day – particularly for whoever wins bragging rights at the end of the game – plus it’s a great way of enjoying the sunshine during the summer weather.
Shoot some Paintballs
Paintballing makes for a classic guy’s day out – what’s better than getting your game face on and going up against teams for the thrill of the hunt. It’s unsurprising that paintballing has remained popular for such a long time, with all the elements you could want for a fun and energetic day out. Another benefit of paintballing is that there are centres all around the country, so you don’t need to travel far.
Become a Race Car Driver for a Day
If you and your maters have a need for speed, this one’s for you. Getting behind the wheel of a NASCAR car and shooting round bends on a racetrack is one of the best feelings in the world and is a truly memorable experience that the whole group will be talking about for years to come.
