Father’s Day is fast approaching and we don’t want you to be the least-favourite child in the family so we’ve put together a quick list of sure-to-be-a-hit gift ideas to put you on dad’s good list through at least the month of June! Father’s Day is on Sunday June 18th and we suggest narrowing down the perfect gift now. Here are some of our favourites to get you started:
1. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE QUALITY TIME!
Spend the day exploring Essex County with a kayak ride to Peche Island or head to Pelee Wings Nature Store & Kayak Shop and have a paddle along the shores of Lake Erie. Check out all things paddling in the On the Water section of our website.
Lure dad into a great day by spending it on the lakes or rivers surrounding Essex County fishing. Chart your course at visitwindsoressex.com/fish.
Is Dad more of the adventurous type? Add a bit of excitement with a boat or jet ski rental from RAW Watersports.
If dry ground is more your speed grab your bikes and hit the trails of the of Windsor Essex, there are miles to explore! Check out our Cycle Tourism Map and plan your route!
2. GET A TASTE OF OUR CRAFT BREWERIES & DISTILLERIES WHEN YOU PURCHASE A FLIGHT LOG!
Explore & pour the 11 craft breweries & 2 distilleries in Windsor Essex that make up the Barrels Bottles & Brews trail! Visit the stops along the way of the Windsor Essex barrel trail – the birthplace of Canadian whisky, award winning vodkas, and craft breweries featuring some of the finest ales, lagers, stouts and more! Raise a glass to dad and treat him to a 1 year Flight Log to taste the best that YQG has to offer and become a Frequent Flyer to get a years worth of tastings & exclusive offers.
3. GET IN THE SWING WITH DAD
With over 20 local golf courses to choose from you’ll be able to get in a round (or two!) and make dad’s day – just make sure your score is a little higher than his! If you’re looking for more fun than focus head to a mini golf course or try a round of disc golf at Lakewood Park. Head straight to visitwindsoressex.com/golf to plan your hole-in-one day.
4. BE A GRILL MASTER
After working up an appetite during whatever activity you choose it’s time to barbecue! Use our W.E. Heart Local partners to put together a hearty dinner that will have dad ready to pass on the grill master title. Check out our blog from Tailgate Takeout to see what she was able to whip up!
5. GIFT DAD A NIGHT OUT AND THE CHANCE TO WIN BIG!
Snag a pair of tickets to an upcoming show at Caesars Windsor — comedy, country, rock — whatever dad is into, they have a show for that! Don’t forget to add in dinner too before the show. Try Neros for a fine dining experience, Legends for the sports lover, and you can’t go wrong with Spago for a hearty Italian meal.
