Our Favorite Gifts for Dads

Father's Day is this weekend, and we want to thank all of the great dad's out there. We wouldn't be where we're at if it weren't for you.

Gifts are great, but we're pretty sure what most fathers are really wanting is to make a more memories with you. Take some time, do something fun, and celebrate what makes your dad so special.
If you're looking for a way to show the dad in your life how much you appreciate them, we have a few ideas.

A Beer

Or cocktail, or cup of coffee, or any drink really. It's not so much about the drink, but the time together. Find somewhere scenic (like pretty much anywhere in the U.P.), get your favorite beverage, and enjoy a conversation. If you want to make it extra special, you can give them cup or mug as great as they are. A YETI mug or bottle is something thy will use all year and think of you with each sip.

A Hike

Time outside is never time wasted. Grab your dad and head into the woods on any of the Upper Peninsula's amazing trails. The walk will give you time to connect, share some laughs, and maybe return with a story or two.

Whether it's a trip up Sugarloaf in Marquette, Bare Bluff in the Keweenaw, or completing the Munising Waterfall Challenge, you and Dad are sure to make some memories together

A bike Ride

Biking is just fun. And it's more fun with dad. Hop on two wheels and hit the roads or trails around the Upper Peninsula. Maybe you're in for the gnarly single track mountain biking in Copper Harbor, or want a downhill cruise on the best bike path in Michigan, or maybe a gravel ride on the roads around Pictured Rocks in Munising. No matter where you ride, your sure have a good time
