Father’s Day is a great time to celebrate Dads and all they do for us. But for many of us, it’s also a stressful time where we try to figure out what to get our dads besides another boring tie. Fathers can be hard to buy for, but one thing all dads love is a day where they can just relax and enjoy their family and friends. Rather than giving your dad something he doesn’t need or will never use this Father’s Day, consider gifting him one of these relaxing experiences that will give your dad memories to last a lifetime.
Yes, you read that right. You can give the dad in your life the gift of unlimited boating without spending tens of thousands of dollars and without the inconvenience of maintenance. Carefree Boat Club offers its members unlimited use of a wide variety of boats, from deck boats to fishing boats to sailing or pontoon boats for an annual fee. The cost varies by location but is generally less than ⅓ of the annual cost to actually own a boat. Carefree Boat Club has nearby and convenient locations in both DC and Annapolis. Insurance, towing, maintenance and everything else is taken care of by Carefree Boat Club. This gift will give your dad an entire year of relaxation on the water – whenever he wants!
Brew It Up
Craft and microbreweries are popping up all over the country and the DC/Annapolis area is no exception. If your dad loves to imbibe on the latest craft brews, consider buying him a ticket to a Brewery Tour. Lots of companies, such as DC Brew Tours, offer affordable day-long tours that include transportation to multiple breweries, behind-the-scenes tours with brew masters and even meals in some cases.
Pitch a Tent
With easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive, camping opportunities abound in our area. If pitching a literal tent seems like too much work for dear old dad’s day off, consider renting an RV from an area RV dealership such as ACE RV in Northern Virginia or Annapolis RV Center. Then hit the open road and enjoy some outdoor time with your old man.
This father’s day, ditch the traditional gift, and instead give your dad the gift of an experience he will never forget – by boat, bus or RV!
