Ideas for an above-average Father’s Day for your above-average Dad

Posted on June 1, 2017 | By Peg McGuire

Your Dad is your biggest fan, your best buddy, your confidant, your mentor, your superhero. So, what do you get a man who has done so much for you?

Easy. You give him an experience, an adventure, something you’ll both remember for years.

Here are some ideas:


Your dad wants nothing more than to spend time with you. Talking with Dad over a cold beer is a simple, yet perfect, way to connect with your superhero.

But don’t go with the typical generic “dad-beer.” Take him to one of the craft breweries along Virginia’s Blue Ridge Beerway.

Along the Beerway, you’ll find gems like Big Lick Brewery, Chaos Mountain Brewing, Soaring Ridge, Flying Mouse Brewery and Parkway Brewing, to name just a few. You and dad will find a craft brew that fits the occasion.

Check out a Craft Beer Tour. It’s the most convenient and fun way to explore Roanoke’s Craft Brewery scene. Enjoy beer tastings, brewery tours, fun, and friends. We provide the transportation, the tour, and the beer. You bring your dad and the fun.


Dad doesn’t sit around, so why not take him on an adventure. Kayak the James River (and then explore a new Craft Brewery)! The next one is on Father’s day!  How about climb McAfee’s Knob. Ride a bike along the Greenway. Or go rock climbing.


Fathers and sons and daughters have shared many a day in a ballpark watching America’s pastime from the stands. The slow pace of the game allows you to connect with dad and share memories. In Roanoke, our team is the Salem Red Sox, a farm team for the Boston Red Sox and part of the storied Carolina League. A hot dog, a cold beer, and a round of “Take Me Out to the Ballpark” makes for a Father’s Day you’ll remember forever.


Dad likes to eat, and thanks to the plethora of great restaurants in Roanoke, you can’t go wrong. And because the Star City of the South boasts a long history of welcoming immigrants, you can experience global tastes without leaving the city.

Check out a Food and Cultural Tour or Sunday Bunch Tour. Discover the tastes, sights, lore, and aromas of Roanoke’s vibrant food scene.
