Father’s Day is a great time to celebrate our Dads and all they do for us. Unfortunately, it can also be a stressful time where we try to figure out what to get our dads besides another boring tie or mug. 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 him a lifetime of memories.
Yes, you read that right. Give your dad 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 a convenient Chicago location right on the lake. 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 Chicago 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 Chicago Beer Experience, offer affordable day-long tours that include transportation to multiple breweries, behind-the-scenes tours with brew masters and even meals in some cases and souvenir glasses.
Pitch a Tent
Some of the coolest places to camp around Chicago are the state parks near Lake Michigan where natural sand dunes still exist. 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 the Chicago area Cruise America. Then hit the open road and enjoy some outdoor time with your old man.
