A Boston Father’s Day
Chances are, you have a dad who’s a little difficult to shop for. By this point, he has just about everything he wants/needs, leaving you with the same old Father’s Day conundrum: how not to get him another tie. So we’re here to help, because there are a couple things we know: There’s nothing like a great experience, together, on Father’s Day. And, of course, Boston has an experience for just about everyone. Check out these 4 city experiences and gift ideas sure to knock Dad’s socks off.
WHALE OF A TALE
For the thalassophile, spend the day around the water. Start at the New England Aquarium with penguins and seals, then head out to sea to meet Sprinkles and Shuffleboard, two of Boston Harbor’s most famous whales! End your afternoon on the Greenway at The Trillium Garden for a great selection of beer and wine.
Gift pairing: Gift dad a casual watch suitable for any city excursion, and to remind him how much you like to spend time with him.
A GREAT WALK UNSPOILED
There’s nothing like a great walk in the park. With a few clubs, of course. Spend some time on the links at one of Boston’s best gems: the Donald Ross designed George Wright Golf Course. See if he knows the course was named after the Boston Red Stockings hall of famer, sparking memories of the Red Sox he watched when he was a kid.
Gift pairing: For the businessman Dad, gift him a ballpoint pen he can use daily to remind him of you!
LIFE, LIBERTY AND GREAT BBQ
If Dad’s always searching for the best BBQ (other than his own, of course), head to the Liberty Hotel. The seventh Annual Father’s Day BBQ features ribs, brisket and whole roasted jerk chicken – complemented by bourbon and live music. Have dessert on-site, or take a stroll down by the Charles River to J.P. Licks for a quindecennial Boston treat.
Gift pairing: For the more sophisticated Dad, gift him a pair of classic cufflinks to add to his wardrobe.
BIKE THE BEAN
If he loves cycling and taking in city views, hop on The Best of Boston by Bike Tour. Explore the North End, Boston Common and other spots, all while enjoying the outdoors and, hopefully, a little sun. Take the morning tour then treat him to a waterfront lunch at the Chart Room or Joe’s American Bar & Grill.
Gift pairing: For the active, on-the-go Dad, gift him a classic, sterling silver keyring that will accompany him on all of his adventures!
No matter what activity you plan for you and Dad this weekend, just remember – all he really cares about is spending time with you.
