- Gone fishin' - Salmon Fishing in Anchorage, Alaska
Send the adventurous dad in your life on the ultimate experience with a guided fishing expedition to Lake Hood in Anchorage, Alaska to catch the mighty king salmon.

- Hit the Links - Golfing in Florida
There is nothing like sending dad on a little healthy competition among peers to get the Father's Day vacation started. Grab his clubs, his favorite golf shirt (the one you got him last year for Father's Day), and hit the course. The Plantation Golf Resort, located about an hour north of Tampa, is truly one of Florida's hidden gems. Not only is it home to two world class championship courses, it is a mere 20 minutes from the renowned World Woods, featuring two public courses that consistently make industry best of lists. Both golf courses are the perfect spot for an extended golf vacation.

- Take a Hike! - Backpacking in Montana -
If your father is a rugged outdoors man, there's no better place to send him than on a hiking or backpacking trip through Montana's rugged peaks, large valleys and high basins. Covered by dense forests, alpine tundra, waterfalls and two large lakes, Glacier National Park is the perfect place to experience the call of the wild. The park has more than 130 lakes, hundreds of species of animals, including elk, bighorn sheep, bison and mountain goats. After a long day of hiking, dad can rest at the Gallatin River Lodge, a breathtaking bed and breakfast ranch.
