5 “Boy” Hobbies Every Woman Should Try

As we get older, we conform to more traditional gender activities. Men and women nowadays share many professions and household duties. But it’s very common to see men stick to more “manly” hobbies and women to participate in more “feminine” tasks.

There are so many hobbies that can be enjoyed by both genders. Here are a few classical “boy” hobbies that women many enjoy and should definitely give a whirl.

Beer Brewing

It’s no secret that men love beer. And it’s a GREAT time to love beer. Most recently local breweries are getting a lot of attention. You can’t leave a liquor store without seeing a wide array of microbrews.

But it’s not just the boys picking up those cool new brews. Many women prefer the taste of beer over other drinks. If that sounds like you, you may want to pick up a home brewing kit.

Since there’s so much attention that there are many home brew kits on the market today. Some of these kits will brew some really amazing beer.


It’s a familiar sight. A motorcycle gang of 20+ bikes cruise down the interstate. All men clad in leather jackets. But this is the stereotypical view of motorcycle riders. Did you know that about 14% of all motorcycle riders are female?

You can easily be one of these 14%. Motorcycles are fun and a great way to enjoy the outdoors. If you’ve never been on a motorcycle, be sure to get proper motorcycle training and licensing before hitting the road. These machines are fun but without the proper training they can harmful


There are many benefits to fishing and it’s not fair that men take advantage of them more than women.

  • It’s relaxing – There are few more calming places than an ocean, lake, or stream.
  • Enjoying the outdoors – The locales are typically beautiful and it gets you outside and one with nature.
  • Practical food source – If you are able to catch a fish (bravo!) you’ve been able to provide yourself with your own food.
  • Bonding – Fishing can be done alone or with others. If you go with others this is a great time to bond without the distractions of the modern world.

Video Games

Teenage boys are typically the target market for most person shooters or Madden football games. But there are many games that can also appeal to women. Even if shoot-em-up games aren’t your style, you can look into the other types of games available.

  • Puzzle Games
  • Simulations
  • Mystery/Detective Games
  • Arcade Style

There are endless options to choose from.


Don’t let those power tools scare you, ladies! You can use a hammer, power drill, and table saw just as well as those boys.

Woodworking requires you to use many different skills, like your mathematical skills and physical skills. And one of the best reasons to jump into this hobby is that at the end of the day you made something awesome! By yourself!

So next time the man in your life goes off to do one of the above, ask to tag along. You’ll never know how much fun you’ll have.
