Seek Retreat

By The Editors

The call of the wild.

A man must heed it, just as he must the call of the missus.

But the woods are usually more enjoyable.

So as fall nears we’ve compiled this: The Six California Adventures Every Man Should Do.


  • Dining on gourmet salmon after dirt-biking from Sequoia to Yosemite
  • Helicoptering to a kayak trip around Catalina
  • Cruising to oyster bays in a tricked-out VW bus

Some are casual day trips. Some are weekenders on less traveled back roads. Still others are burly expeditions in the deep wilderness. 

But every one of them embodies a sense of adventure and style that would make Hemingway proud. (Or Kerouac. Or Guevara. Or whoever tickles your romantic fancy.)

And all come with delicious cups of coffee and microbrews by the fire.

Get inspired. And get out there.

Enjoy the guide.
