Father’s Day is just around the corner, which means it’s time to spoil Dad on his special day. Play a round of golf, catch a ball game, or take a rafting adventure down the Ocoee River. Here are just a few ways to celebrate Father’s Day in Chattanooga this year.

If there’s one thing any father is bound to love, it’s a good round of golf. Enjoy the beautiful mountain views at the Moccasin Bend Golf Course or the Lookout Mountain Club, or spend the day by the water at Bear Trace at Harrison Bay. Great views and a good game of golf are sure to make this Father’s Day a hole-in-one.

Father’s Day Brews & Blues at the Chattanooga Market, 11 a.m.– 4 p.m.
Treat Dad to a Chattanooga Market experience — themed just for him. Let dad relax and enjoy some local Brews & Blues. The whole family can grab lunch at one of the eateries or food trucks. If you need a great gift, don’t forget to pick him up a special present from one of the local vendors.

Outdoor Adventure
Who doesn’t love a dose of outdoor adventure? After all, Chattanooga was named the Best Town Ever by Outside magazine – twice. Take time to explore miles of amazing trails, battle the raging rapids of the Ocoee River, or conquer the skies in a hang glider. There’s no shortage of amazing outdoor activities that dad’s going to love in Chattanooga.

Go Rock Climbing
With its luminescent, color-changing outdoor walls, High Point Climbing & Fitness is hard to miss. With areas for bouldering, lead climbing, top rope, and 20 auto belays, the gym provides a great introduction for anyone interested in seeing what rock climbing is all about. Spend the day scaling the 30,000+ feet of rock walls and then head next door to Mellow Mushroom for a slice of pizza and a cold beer.

Burgers and cold brews - what could be better? Thanks to the Collegedale Market, your dad can get both!  Shop for some local ingredients to take home and have a family cookout too! This is the prime time for growing season. 

Music & Entertainment
If you’re looking for toe-tapping tunes, check out Summer Music Weekends at Rock City Gardens or stop by the Flying Squirrel for Sunday Brunch and killer vocals from Shaun Munday. 

Take a Cruise
For a relaxing journey down the Tennessee River, experience the Southern Belle Riverboat and treat yourself to live music, tours of the pilot house, and a delicious buffet-style dinner. Or, if you feel like touring the river via your own manpower, rent a kayak or paddleboard from L2 Outside.
