A Destination for Every Type of Dad

As a travel advisor, I’m big on the gift of experience. Whether it’s a cooking class down the street from the house or a fishing trip to Wyoming, there’s nothing like spending quality time with those you love while creating long-lasting memories. 

For those of you that are still searching for the perfect Father’s Day gift, or maybe haven’t started, I have curated a list of top activities and destinations for every type of dad that will guarantee adventure.

The History Buff

If your dad has a love for history, there’s no better destination than the Churchill War Rooms in London. On a private tour, you’ll have the incredible opportunity to step into the very bunker where Winston Churchill orchestrated the Allied victory. With exclusive access by the museum’s Director Emeritus, you’ll explore rooms off-limits to the general public. Don’t miss the chance to visit the legendary ‘Map Room,’ in which every move of the Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and the British Army was recorded. 

The Golf Fanatic

If you’re seeking the ultimate golfing experience, look no further than Adare Manor – where golfing meets luxury resort getaway. As the host of the upcoming Ryder Cup in 2027, this property is a dream come true for golfers. Imagine playing and staying right on the course where the pros will compete! But it’s not just the golf that sets Adare Manor apart. This incredible resort has also been named the #1 Resort in the World by Condé Nast Traveler in the Readers’ Choice Awards, ensuring a luxurious and unforgettable stay.

The Bourbon Lover

For all the bourbon-loving dads! If you’re looking for the ultimate trip through Bourbon Country, Kentucky is the perfect destination. With its rich history and legendary distilleries, it offers a wide range of tastings. 

“I recommend taking a distillery tour where you can witness bourbon-making firsthand. Whether you’re a connoisseur or just starting your bourbon journey, these Kentucky distilleries have something for everyone, for a delicious affair.” – Jennifer

A few top distilleries to add to your list: 

  • Wild Turkey, Lawrenceburg
  • Bulleit Distilling Co., Shelbyville
  • Maker’s Mark Distillery, Loretto
  • Woodford Reserve Distillery, Versailles
  • Buffalo Trace Distillery, Frankfort

The Wine Lover

Napa Valley is a wine enthusiasts’ playground. From rolling vineyard hills to exquisite cuisine, there’s more wineries (over 400 to be exact) and urban tastings than you could ever attempt to experience in one trip. A few of my favorite places to stay?

The Fishing Fanatic

With twenty-five canvas tents, Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge is a Canadian destination for any earth-loving angler. 

“Vancouver Island’s celebrated luxury outpost Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge skirts the banks of its namesake ocean inlet, Clayoquot Sound and offers an escape to the still, tranquil beauty of Canada’s remote wilderness. Accessible only by seaplane or boat, the journey to Clayoquot is symbolic of a real departure from the everyday. Adventure-filled days are bolstered by local produce-driven, sustainable dining, fine wines, world-class accommodation and the chance to unwind in generously appointed campaign-style guest tents.” – Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge

While you’re there, make sure to try heli-fishing! The resort’s fly-fishing adventure will take you in a private helicopter to remote, secret fishing spots that aren’t accessible to anyone else (without a helicopter) and guided by local experts. 

Until our next adventure,
