Treat him like king of the castle with these fun ideas:
- Tap into his rugged side with hiking, fly-fishing, river rafting, or a drive through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Father’s Day forecast promises lots of sun and temperatures in the low 80s, a winning combination for a day spent outdoors.
- Tee up on one of our numerous golf courses. Share a laugh or reminisce as you try to out-putt dad.
- Sample some of the best brews in the nation with a Brews Cruise of Asheville or take a self-guided tour of downtown’s micro-brewing scene. Asheville’s rocking beer scene was recently named East Coast Beer City USA!
- Indulge with a delicious meal that celebrates Asheville’s field-to-table culture. Barbecue ranks high on the man-food menu, so check out the numerous barbecue joints around town. Local restaurant 12 Bones won Good Morning America’s “Best Bites” contest in 2007.
