We're paying tribute to and saluting all of the hard working dads out there! Father's Day is right around the corner, which means it's time to make plans for you and your pops. Need some inspiration for your celebration? An adventure is what is recommended. Here are two of the places we suggest spending your Father's Day at and why.
Vail Day Trip
Though a popular ski destination during the winter months, Vail also draws adventurous visitors during the summer. The ideal place to get in a bit of golfing surrounded by natural landscapes, mountain bike and camp, Vail is a great place to take dad for Father's Day. Not up for a round of golf, a ride or a hike? Explore the local farmer's market or do some fly fishing down at Gore Creek. There are also a number of restaurants nearby that are widely revered for their farm to table menus, so bring your appetite.
Another spot winter vacationers frequent, Aspen also offers a number of summertime activities. If your dad is physically active, why not take him on the trip of a lifetime. Ride the Silver Queen Gondola to get a breathtaking view, do some rock climbing or hike the Ute Trail and then head into town to dine at some of the best restaurants in the region. If in town the Saturday before Father's Day Sunday, we recommend checking out Aspen's Saturday Market. It's known around the globe!
With plenty to do outdoors, Colorado is where dad can explore his inner adventurer. If you live in the Centennial State or if you'll be visiting with dad this summer, we suggest heading to either Vail or Aspen. Family-friendly, home to world famous artists and known for perfect summer season weather, both of these locations appeal to dads of all ages.
