Father’s Day is fast approaching…show Dad just how much you appreciate him by giving him the best gift of all…your time…spent enjoying all of his favourite activities of course (wink, wink).
We’re going to make this incredibly easy on you. We’re telling you exactly where to go and what to do in Prince Edward County. Now you can wow your Dad and have an amazing day together, with him none the wiser about how easy it was to plan.
Here are the top five “Dadliest” things to do in Prince Edward County (Dad jokes unfortunately not included):
Grab a Beer
What better way to enjoy father’s day than by cracking a cold one with your old man? Trust us, he’ll appreciate this gesture (and so will you)! Prince Edward County has some of the best craft beers in Ontario (in our humble opinion). Here’s where you can snag them:
Whack a Ball (The Golf Kind)
What’s the only thing dads enjoy more than a cold beer? Golf of course! Hit the greens and show your Dad how great your golf game is. (Pro tip: Combine beers and golf to send your Dad straight to heaven!) There are a variety of golf courses to enjoy in Prince Edward County. Wellington On The Lake Golf Course, located right in the village of Wellington, is a great course for all abilities. This course is “an interesting mix of links style golf holes exposed to the breezes off Lake Ontario and contrasting, mature tree-lined fairways. A quality Azinger design that appeals to golfers of all ability”. If you’re new to golf, this is one course you definitely want to check out! If you’re looking for something a little more challenging, the Picton Golf And Country Club may be more your style. This is a “challenging and enjoyable 18-hole, par 72 Championship Course. Established in 1907, the Club is one of the oldest golf facilities in Ontario and has been described as a hidden gem and one of the best kept secrets in Ontario golfing circles”. This is one course you don’t want to miss!And finally, if you’re looking for something the whole family can enjoy, Caddy Shack mini golf has you covered! Come out and enjoy a round of mini golf with the kids! This course is located at the entrance to Sandbanks Provincial Park, so it’s right in the heart of PEC. (A licensed patio and bar is also available for the adults in the group.)
Hit A (Car) Show
If your Dad happens to be one of the few that doesn’t enjoy a good ol’ game of golf, then we’re guessing he’ll be into this next activity: car shows! If you’re anything like us, then hitting the car show with your Dad every summer is one of the fondest memories you’ve got. Reminisce on times past by bringing your Dad to the car show again! ArmDrop Drag Racing takes your childhood car show to a whole new level, giving you a chance to see these classic beauties in action! They “keep the old street racing spirit alive: no timing, no slips, arm-drop start, race anyone you want!”. There’s a race on June 22 from 10am – 6pm at the Picton Airport. (You can find their full schedule on their website.)
Get Your Bike On
If you’re looking for something a little more active than beer, golf, or a car show, consider cruising around Prince Edward County on bikes! Biking is a great way to explore the many beautiful backroads the County has to offer. You can also enjoy the Millennium Trail by bike!If you’re in Bloomfield, you can rent your bikes from the Bloomfield Bicycle Company.
Extend The Day…Stay And Play!
If you want to squeeze in a few more rounds of golf (or craft beers) than you can fit into a single day, then turn Father’s Day into a weekend getaway!
