Getaways for dads…

1.      The Florida Keys

The tropical islands that make up the Florida Keys are a fisherman’s paradise. From the northernmost island of Elliott Key to Key West, the southernmost point in the continental United States, fishermen can find all types of fishing, including light tackle, deep sea and wreck fishing. Anglers can get their hands on a wide range of underwater species like grouper, snapper, blue marlin, tuna and yellowtail. No boat? No problem. The historic bridges that border the Florida Keys Overseas Highway serve as great fishing platforms (saltwater licenses are still required) for those who aren’t able to head out to sea. Another option if you don’t own a boat is to book a fishing package for Pops and his buddies through Pretty Work Charters in Islamorada, Florida. A three-night package includes one full day and one half day of fishing on a 46-foot or 50-foot Sportfish boat and accommodations at the charming Islander Resort. The boat can accommodate up to 20 people.

2.      Las Vegas, Nevada

Gambling, music, nightlife, extreme sports, and entertainment galore… doesn’t sound like your Dad? Think again. While it’s true that the siren song of Vegas beckons all men, it doesn’t do so for the sole purpose of leaving a trail of debauchery in his wake, like most movies would suggest. Vegas has plenty of class left, and is still more The Rat Pack than it is The Hangover. Sending Dad to Vegas is perfect because it gives him a chance to pack a lot of fun in a short amount of time, be it golf, cards, fine dining, or a critically-acclaimed show.

3.      Brooklyn, Maine

Brooklyn is a wonderful outdoor adventure vacation, with areas to kayak, canoe and sail. Now imagine doing those activities in a vessel that you built! If that sounds like something Dad would enjoy, then spend a week here and take classes from WoodenBoat School. Pops will learn the whole spectrum of skill levels, from basic woodworking to actually building a sailboat! Now that’s a true handyman.

4.      Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Myrtle Beach has been called “the golf capital of the world” not only because of its 115 golf courses, but also due to its 46 mini golf courses! Make this Father’s Day a family affair in Myrtle Beach, where Dad can tackle some of the world’s most challenging golf courses designed by Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Robert Trent Jones during the day, and then challenge the kids in a game of putt-putt at night. To really win the “Child (or Wife) of the Year” award, book the Champions Package at the Tournament Players Club of Myrtle Beach which includes accommodations in either a 3-bedroom or 4-bedroom luxury villa located on club grounds and three rounds of golf. The Tournament Players Club features a real PGA Tour layout, as it played host to the Senior PGA Tour Championship in 2000, and is the only course in Myrtle Beach to earn a five-star rating from Golf Digest.

5.      Napa Valley, California

The Napa and Sonoma Valley regions of Northern California make up the heart of what is simply known as “wine country” throughout the state, as well as across most of the U.S. While the entire area is predominantly agricultural, it’s rather easy to stumble into (or meticulously book) countless opportunities to explore the picturesque countryside and sample the delicately-crafted wares of the vintners who cultivate it. Given the area’s close proximity to San Francisco’s high-end culinary scene, you won’t run short of delectable pairing options for your favorite bottle any time soon.
