Father’s Day is rapidly approaching and there’s no better time in the Finger Lakes to explore! This year marks my fourth year as a father and I'm looking forward to carving out a special time on Saturday and Sunday to celebrate! But my question is, how will you celebrate? We’ve got a few ideas for you.



1. Play a round of golf on your favorite course!

David Golf Reservoir CreekFather’s Day shares a weekend with the U.S. Open, so when you’re not watching golf you should hit the links! Did you know that Ontario County has over 10 public golf courses? Plenty of options for Dad but be sure to make a tee time. See our full list here


#2. Take to the trees at the Bristol Mountain Aerial Park & Canopy Tours

#6. Grab a great meal from one of your favorite Finger Lakes Restaurants!

Rio FoodRio Tomatlan is just one of those great restaurant options and sources say they have a great tequila selection. Those sources? Me.


#7. It’s lucky number 7, head to the Finger Lakes Gaming and Race Track in Farmington.

#8. Fill your growlers and enjoy some excellent Finger Lakes craft beer.

GAELThis isn't breaking news, but most fathers love a cold brew. Swing by and fill up for the weekend at GAEL Brewing Company. (Also, beer is always a great gift).

#9. Explore the waterfalls at Grimes Glen
