Destination: Dad!

Father’s Day is right around the corner. Have you decided what you’re going to do for Dad yet? According to Vincent, one of our guest bloggers, people truly value experiences much more than things, as we highlighted in one of our blogs. Why not gift your dad a road trip or destination he’ll always remember?

Road Trippin’
Route 100, Vermont–Catch Vermont’s Route 100 for a tour of the beautiful Green Mountains and lush farmland that looks like this:

California State Route 1– If you want a plethora of scenery from mountains to seascapes, look no further than California’s never-ending road that runs along most of the Pacific.


Cool Campouts

Paws Up Ranch — If the best in wildlife camping is what you’re seeking, look no further than Paws Up Ranch in Montana. It’s 37,000 acres of camping and wilderness attractions that some have called “The American Safari.”

Red River Gorge, KY — A popular stop for visitors both near and far, the RRG is known as the site of some of the most beautiful trails in the U.S. Plus, if you’re a local Kentuckian from Lexington, you should know that views like this are only 40 minutes away…


Yosemite National Park — If Dad’s travel motto is “Go big or go home,” don’t miss Yosemite. But make sure you both know what you’re in for first: Most of Yosemite has no roads, electricity, or structure–just wilderness as far as the eyes can see.

Beach, please
Assateague Island, Maryland — This 37-mile island on the coast of Maryland and Virginia marks an ideal destination for those who want to camp on the beach, blaze a trail, and watch beautiful horses run along the pristine shoreline.

Gulf Shores, Alabama — It’s probably less expensive than your go-to beach town, and it has beautiful views.

Cape May, New Jersey — When most of us think of beautiful beaches, we too often rush to book in southern states like Florida. Once you’ve seen this beautiful Jersey shoreline, however, you’ll probably plan a return trip for next summer.


Unconventionally cool ideas

Huntsville, AL — Does your dad love tech? Take him to see the Space Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

Nashville, TN — Or maybe picking a guitar is more of his thing. Make sure he gets a full tour of Nashville, lovingly named “Music City.”

Portland, OR — Hello, beer tourism! Portland boasts over 60 breweries within its city limits, making it the perfect destination for beer snob dads.

Where are you going to go? Let us know which sounds like your dad’s style in the comments below!
