Daddio deserves to be cherished and appreciated every day, but there’s one day it counts the most. Head to Dublin GA for the dadliest ways to celebrate Father’s Day!

9 Dadliest Ways to Celebrate Father's Day

1. Fishing Trip

Does your old man fancy himself an angler? Grab the rods, tackle box, tents, and coolers for a outdoorsman’s delight! Decked out with picnic shelters, a 109-acre lake, and primitive campsites, Hugh Gillis Public Fishing Area is the perfect Father’s Day family outing. Fish together or allow Dad some serene alone time. The fishing area is open 24 hours a day during June, so why not make it a Father’s Week?

2. Cold Ones at the Brewery

Share a brew with the big man at Dublin’s up-and-coming hangout spot, Crooked Finger Brewing. Talk about all the good times you shared while sipping through their growing assortment of house-brewed beers. Play a few games of cornhole in between munching on smash burgers and dirty truck fries. The whole family’s invited, even Fido!

3. Tee Up

A trip to Riverview Golf Course keeps you on par for a great Father’s Day! Make it a family event and play the role of caddy as Pops swings through 9 or 18 holes. Ace the gift giving game by purchasing Dad his very own membership, which is on sale for $100 off during the month of June.

4. Lounge away!

All work and no play will make Dad a dull… man. Twist his arm to laze about the lazy river of Southern Pines Water Park and let him float into a world of imagination with cool water freshness lasting all day long.

5. Pottery Time

Spend quality time making time with Papa! Stoke Studios presents their Father’s Day Pottery Class at Society Kaffee on Saturday, June 15th from 11 AM to 1 PM. Create a working clock from clay while building a stronger bond with your dad. $75 gets you 2 tickets, clay, glazes, firing, and lasting memories. Reserve your spot by calling (478)304-3096 or by purchasing tickets during regular business hours.

6. Strike a Few Pins

There’s a full day of play in store for the whole family at Shamrock Bowling Center in Dublin GA. Dad can work on his turkey, score big at the arcade, munch on snacks from the cafe, and enjoy a game of pool. Keep the ball rolling without worrying about burning a hole in your wallet because until 6 PM, games and shoe rentals are $1 each for kids under 14 during Summer Dollar Days!

7. Explore Dublin

Start a geocaching adventure with Papa to discover well-loved areas of Dublin GA.   Whether he’s a treasure hunting enthusiast or a history buff, Dad won’t get enough of the hours of family time fun geocaching brings.

Tip: Don’t just take a piece of swag and move on. Make the most of your caching quest by partaking in the all the area has to offer, like going on our self-guided Historic Downtown Walking Tour after finding the cache at Martin Luther King, Jr. Monument Park.

8. Treat Dad to a Feast

Treat dad to course upon course of decadent Italian delights by reserving a table at Dublin Farm‘s Ristorante da Maria. Chef Maria prepares a special menu every Friday and Saturday that will keep foodie fathers satisfied.

The Italian flavors keep coming during Italian Night at the Page House Bed and Breakfast on Saturday, June 22nd. Chef Mono Cruz’s food will have dad saying, “Mamma Mia!”… or is it “Papá mio!”?

Soothe Dad’s craving for good food and good music at Miller’s Soul Food Restaurant during An Evening of Dinner, Jazz, and R&B on Saturday, June 29th. Dinner is $30 per person. Find a snazzy, dressy outfit for dad and book your reservation by June 26th by calling (478)272-5983 or (305)826-2858. Dinner choices can be found HERE.


9. Find Father a Fit

Whether he is fashion foward or just wears whatever he’s given, the Sir Shop makes sure dad looks GOOD. They have casual looks, fancy fits, and customizable selections that will elevate any pop’s wardrobe.

What about some footwear to go with those clothes? Strickland’s Boots applies the personal touch by keeping up with each person’s favorite styles and wishlists. If he hasn’t been to Strickland’s before, make sure to bring dad along to guarantee perfectly fitting boots that will make pappy happy.

With these ideas and activities, planning out your extra fatherly getaway to Dublin GA is a walk in the park! Stay rested for Dad’s big day with a hotel stay.
