Treat the Superman in your life to a weekend to remember this Father’s Day in Savannah. Father’s Day falls on June 16 this year, so there’s no time to waste in planning. Fortunately, we’re here to help, and we know all the best activities to make it a fun and memorable occasion.
Go For a Paddle
If your dad loves the outdoors, book a salt marsh paddle tour with Sea Kayak Georgia just minutes from downtown Savannah on Tybee Island. Their seasoned guides love showing off our pristine coast on half-day, full-day or sunset tours. Explore the marshes, barrier islands or open ocean. They offer an array of tours for all skill levels. Oh, and prepare to see lots of wildlife, maybe even a dolphin or two.
Kick back and enjoy a cold one with dad at one of Savannah’s breweries. Southbound Brewing Co. is a go-to spot for live music and brews. Did your father serve in the military? Drop by Service Brewing Co. It is veteran-owned and operated and dedicated to service men and women. The award-winning brews at Coastal Empire Beer Co., include unique flavors like Southern Delight Praline Ale and Madagascar vanilla. Last, but not least, is the Moon River Brewing Co. which offers an outdoor beer garden and an air of humor to their line-up. Raise a glass to Dad.
Golf for Father’s Day in Savannah
Take your Dad for 18 holes of some of the best golf in the Southeast during your stay. Whatever you and your Dad’s skill level, the local courses are a challenging, relaxing way to spend quality time together. The Club at Savannah Harbor offers greens that roll true and wide open fairways. Savannah Quarters is a Greg Norman signature course that weaves through lagoons, natural areas, cypress groves, and live oak trees.
Hit the History Trail
Savannah is a dream destination for history buffs. In fact, you’ll probably stay in the Historic District, which is a National Historic Landmark. It’s one of the largest in the country with 22 public squares, beautiful churches and historic homes literally on every corner. There’s lots of military history as well with Fort Jackson on the Savannah River. More than 200 years old, Fort Jackson offers interactive programs on the life of a soldier. Guests learn from various drills and can watch a daily cannon demonstration.
Cast Your Line
There’s nothing quite like bonding with your Dad on a fun fishing excursion. Book a Tybee Island fishing charter, then cast your line in the Atlantic Ocean or on an inshore trip. Reel in a Mahi Mahi, Savannah Slam, flounder, black drum, mackerel or redfish. These experienced anglers can put you on the fish.
With so much to do, it’s easy to plan a Father’s Day in Savannah for your SuperDad. This year, throw out the same-old last-minute plans and leave the tie and socks at the department store. Give Dad what he really wants…time together.
