It’s that time of year again – time to go shopping for some socks, golf balls or car polish. That’s right, Father’s Day is on the horizon.
It may not carry the same weight as Mothering Sunday, but Father’s Day is still an important date in the parental calendar.
It’s easy for dads to sometimes go unrecognised and unsung for all their hard work. But without them, how would any of us know how to ride a bike or be rude to staff in McDonald’s?
Father’s Day takes place this Sunday, so there’s still time to get your dad something a bit special this year. Instead of a humorous card and a bottle of foreign beer, why not try one of these ideal breaks for dads?
What dad doesn’t love the big cars and even bigger food of the USA? With stunning views to be found across this vast nation, there will be something to suit every dad out there.
If you have the time, a cross-country trip is the best way to really get a feel for the American culture and way of life. After all, a trip down Route 66 is high on many dads’ list of life goals.
Going skiing is definitely something that is passed down from generation to generation. If your dad is a snow-lover then a ski holiday could be perfect.
The ski season is over in all but the very highest places in Europe, such as the Northern Alps, but it’s just getting started in the Southern Hemisphere. Head to the Andes in South America for some stunning views and great skiing.
Exploring a vineyard
Most dads like to have a drink or two, so why not get them off the bitter and on to some well-crafted European wine?
Vineyards can be found throughout Europe, but head to Northern Italy for some of the best vineyard and winery tours.
