There’s nothing better than spending a Sunday with Dad, but with Father’s Day just around the corner we can’t wait to celebrate this special day with the favorite men in our lives!  Whether you’re a Charleston local, or your vacation plans in the lowcountry include a Father’s Day celebration, if you’re wondering what to do with your dad on Father’s Day Weekend in Charleston, we’ve got a few suggestions:

For the adventurous

Whether you’ve lived in Charleston for a few months or many years, chances are you haven’t seen it all.  Plan your weekend for a “staycation” or vacation like a local and enjoy the beauty of the lowcountry by heading out to Boone Hall or Magnolia Plantations for a bike ride or picnic.

If your dad enjoys a hotdog, a cold beverage and a chance to do the “seventh inning stretch” you can take dad out to the ballgame — the RiverDogs are in town all weekend! Nothing is better than a night at “The Joe” and you can count on the RiverDogs to deliver a night of family fun.

For the history buff

If the dad in your life loves to kick back with a documentary or loves the History Channel, there are plenty of places to visit that he may not have been yet! If you want to stay outside, check out Fort Sumter or take a daytime ghost tour. Bulldog Tours even offers a haunted Pub Crawl for the dad who enjoys sipping on a pint.  And, even though Palmetto Carriage Works offers the chance to tour Charleston’s historic streets by carriage, they offer a great historic walking tour too.

For the foodie

It’s no secret that Charleston’s food scene has exploded in the last few years. Sometimes it feels like we can’t even keep up with all the openings! Instead of trying your tried-and-true watering hole for Sunday brunch, branch out to eat something new. A few places we love: The Royal Tern on John’s Island, Darling Oyster (Downtown) and James on James Island.

For the jokester

If you haven’t been to Theatre 99, it’s a true Charleston gem. Aside from their weekly “Laugh for a Lincoln” series, they also put on “Improv Riot” virtually every Saturday night. There’s no better way to celebrate with Dad than laughing together!

For the water lover

Did you know that you can rent boats in Charleston? Even yachts! Treat Dad to a weekend on the water aboard a dream vessel. After all, when else when he will he get to wear a skipper’s cap?

And while dad is sure to enjoy captaining a yacht for a day, there are great less expensive options for water fun with dad.  Rent kayaks or stand up paddleboards at Shem Creek and spend the day on the water together!
