Father’s Day Travel Ideas

his Father’s Day, skip the tie and treat Dad to a travel adventure. Rock climbing in Utah, race car driving in Myrtle Beach — check out our ideas to make this Father’s Day one he’ll remember.

Fly-Fishing, Idaho

For the dad who loves fly-fishing… Book a rustic vacation by the bend of a river. Eastern Idaho’s Natural Retreats South Fork Lodge rests along the south fork of Snake River, the largest North American river that empties into the Pacific Ocean. It’s also one of the best places in the US for tailwater and dry fly fisheries.

Rock Climbing, Utah

For the dad who likes to live on the edge… Head to Moab, Utah, the adventure capital of America. Popular places include Wall Street, a sandstone cliff along the Colorado River. After a day of climbing, Dad can unwind with a hearty meal of Grilled Cowboy Steak atSorrel River Ranch.

Mega-Male Spa Treatment at the Arizona Biltmore

For the dad who needs a little pampering… Treat him to a mega-male spa treatment at the Arizona Biltmore, a resort crowned the “Jewel of the Desert” when it opened in 1929. Spa options include the deep tissue and soothing back treatments.

Golf Getaway, Wyoming

For the dad who likes to tee it up… Treat him to a golf getaway at Hotel Terra near Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Dad will enjoy a round of golf on a Robert Trent Jones course. When he’s not hitting the green, he can explore Grand Teton and Yellowstone.

Paintball, West Virginia

For the dad who likes to let loose… See Dad put his strategic skills to the test in the forests of West Virginia at Ambush West Virginia’s paintball center. He’ll enjoy a real-life gaming adventure on a 4-acre paintball course, with game options such as Civil War-style battles and the ever-popular “Capture the Flag.”

Skydiving, Chicagoland

For the dad who’s got skydiving on his bucket list… Help him score bragging rights (and maybe a few laughs) with a tandem skydive. Dad will get his “knees in the breeze” as he ascends 18,000 feet in an aircraft courtesy of the Chicagoland Skydiving Center, one of the safest skydiving facilities in the U.S.

Foodie Getaway, New Orleans

For the foodie dad… Satisfy his gourmet taste buds with a trip to the Crescent City. Try the Hyatt Regency New Orleans, where Dad will enjoy a breakfast buffet at 8 Block Kitchen & Bar with classic and local menu options such as fried-oyster eggs Benedict and New Orleans beignets.

Diving, Grand Cayman

For the diving dad… He just might love Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach. The 5.5-mile beach has received travel mag accolades as “the Caribbean’s best beach.” During his stay at the Westin Grand Cayman (where the fourth night is free), Dad will enjoy diving beneath the area’s aquamarine waters — and seeing coral reefs, colorful fish and even shipwrecks.

Brewery Tour

For the dad who can appreciate a good craft ale… Take him to a major beer destination. Our top picks for Dad: Portland, Oregon, which has more breweries per capita than any other city in the U.S.; and Milwaukee, home to four of the world’s largest breweries.

Flight School, Florida

For the dad who always wished he could do something really cool… Help his dreams take flight. Cover his admission to Paragon Flight, an FAA-approved flight training center. Dad will enjoy the scenic flights over Florida, and will be speaking pilot lingo in no time.

Hi, my name is Lori Judd and I am a CTA Graduate of ICTA (Institute of Certified Travel Agents) as well as a ACC accredit agent of CLIA. I have been in the travel industry for 20 years. I started my travel career at Journey's Travel and later joined the Walt Disney Travel Company, where I booked travel vacations for the company for 10 years. I left WDTC to pursue my dream of opening my own travel agency. Why should you book through me? You will find that am I extremely knowledgeable in my field with first hand experience with many cruise ships and vacation destinations. Plus, unlike most agents who are condemned to book vacations to make their agency a certain amount of revenue (or risk losing their jobs), I am able to book what you actually want vs what the agency needs. This means your vacation needs will never be compromised just because a supplier is offering more commission to book them. Also, since we are affiliated with a larger travel company we are still able to compete with other agencies by giving our clients competitive prices. The bottom line is: Prestige Travel Vacations is more interested in making your dreams come true by booking exactly what your asking for based on your needs and not by what someone else's idea of what a great vacation for you would be just because it will get them more commission. My cruise experiences: DCL- cruised 9 times! Current Platinum Member/ Wonder (twice in '06) and recent 11/2010/ Magic inaugural & Disney Dream -Apr. 2011 RCCL- 5 times! Current Platinum Member. Sailed once in a family suite. Granduer/ Enchantment/ Mariner/ Navigator 'Jan.08 & 2010/ New- Allure May 2012 Carnival- Fantasy/ Miracle and Inspiration 9/17/09. Ship tours incld.: CCL- Legend/ Holland's Veendam /NCL Star Nov.2011/ RCCL Jewel 3/12/12/ CCL Paradise 10/21/12
