With Father’s Day just around the corner (June 16), it’s a good time to start planning a special celebration for dad. The Charleston area, particularly the beach communities, offers plenty of experiences for making memories with dad.

Championship Golf in Charleston

Is Dad a golfer? Take him out for 18 holes on one of our premier Charleston golf courses. Kiawah Island Golf Resort offers five courses, while Wild Dunes Resort Golf is a links-style course with rolling fairways and rustling palms. There’s also Patriots Point Links in Mt. Pleasant and the Seabrook Island Golf Course right on the Atlantic Ocean.

Cast a line

If your father prefers fishing, book an inshore or near-shore charter trip with Capt. Ben Floyd and Charleston Fish Finders at the Isle of Palms Marina. With more than 20 years of experience fishing the Lowcountry, Capt. Ben will put you on the sheepshead, tarpon, and redfish. Explore More charters is another great choice for inshore trips. Just be sure to bring a cooler for your catch.

Take Him Out to the Ball Park

For baseball fans, a night at the ballpark is a great way to spend quality time. The Charleston Riverdogs take on the Greenville Drive at home with a four-game series starting Thursday, June 14. The Riverdogs, a Class Single-A team in the South Atlantic League, play at Joseph P. Riley Park in Charleston. They are an affiliate of the New York Yankees.

Dine on Delicious Lowcountry Fare

If dad loves a dining adventure, Charleston’s coastal communities are a foodie’s paradise. From Bohicket’s Lounge and Sea View Terrace on Seabrook Island to Coconut Joe’s Beach Grill on Isle of Palms to Poe’s Tavern on Sullivan’s Island, enjoy filling burgers, mouthwatering seafood, and ice-cold beer.

Step Onboard a Naval Landmark

Is your dad a history buff or veteran? Visit Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum on Charleston Harbor with the USS Yorktown as its centerpiece. It’s also home to a fleet of National Historic Landmark ships, the Cold War Memorial and the only Vietnam Experience Exhibit in the U.S.

With an itinerary for Father’s Day in Charleston in hand, put the icing on the cake with a Charleston vacation rental. Browse to find a rental that puts you in the heart of the activity in Isle of Palms, Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, and Wild Dunes. Then, it’s just a matter of making memories with dad during his big weekend.
