A single weekend – or a few days mid-week if you're on a budget – in Las Vegas is enough time to get into financial trouble or the swing of things in America's capital of "Why not"? We recommend the latter because the payout (mostly stories you can tell your friends back home) is guaranteed.
Here are some of the rewarding ways (think great golf, great cigars, and driving really, really fast) a non-gambling man can spend time in Sin City – and come away with tales of not-so-gamey fun worth telling.
Hit the man spa.
For many guys, spending an afternoon at a spa smacks of feminine indulgence and the unique discomfort that comes from being oiled up and pummeled by a woman you've just met and can't see. Forget all that. The 90-minute Tao of Man treatment at Mandarin Oriental Hotel's spa is uniquely oriented towards a male clientele. It combines a deep massage with an intensely exfoliating Asian skin cleaning (scraping!) technique called Gua Sha, topped off by application of Thai herb poultices that relax and restore muscles. Bottom line: The Tao of Man feels comfortable, even if you're not typically comfortable in that kind of environment.
