3 Ideas for the Best Father’s Day Present Ever

3 Ideas for the Best Father’s Day Present Ever

Father’s Day is just around the corner (hint: June 19th). Instead of getting Dad another tie, do something special this year. Our idea? A weekend getaway filled with all the things Dad loves. From sporty excursions to a food-filled escape, we’ve got you covered.

1) If your Dad loves to golf…

Every year the U.S. Open ends on Father’s Day. While you may not be able to take your dad to the Oakmont Country Club in Pennsylvania, you can celebrate the sport and your Dad with a golf trip in none other than Las Vegas. From dream courses like the legendary Shadow Creek to the more reasonable Angel Park, you’re sure to find the perfect fit.

When you are done golfing, consider taking in a show or lounge by the pool with a cocktail in hand. Not every trip to Vegas needs to be a party, although we promise it will still be a trip your Dad will never forget.

2) If your Dad considers himself a beer aficionado…

Does Dad love beer? Do you love beer? Perfect. Bond over your shared passion with a visit to one of Portland’s many breweries and microbreweries. We recommend starting your trip with Brewvana, which offers walking, bus, and private tours to some of the best breweries in Portland.

If spirits are more your thing, check out Distillery Row in South Portland, home to several up and coming microdistilleries. One of the best is House Spirits, with its pre-Prohibition-style Aviation Gin, Westward Oregon Straight Malt Whiskey, Volstead Vodka, and more.

3) If your Dad wants to get out of the suburbs…

If your Dad is more used to carpooling in minivans than hailing a taxi, take him to Chicago to get out of the rut. Start with a sailing trip on Lake Michigan to see stunning views of the city, then head to some of Chicago’s classic establishments for dinner and drinks. Our suggestions? Hugo’s Frog Bar for classy steaks or Chicago Pizza Oven Grinder for mafia inspired pizza pot pies.
