Father’s Day is coming up, which means offspring everywhere are scratching their heads trying to think of what to get the man who has everything. We’ve compiled a list of some of the best places to shop for Dad, as well as some experiences he won’t soon forget.
Treat Him to a Tasting
Lynchburg is home to two great tasting experiences- Fifth and Federal and Small Batch Barbeque.
Fifth and Federal’s extensive tasting menu means that Dad is sure to find his new favorite spirit. Pair the drinks with some of their famous pulled pork and he’s sure to never forget the afternoon. Likewise, Small Batch offers tastings of both whiskey and bourbon, which pair well with their ribs and smoked wings. Whichever restaurant you take Dad to, we’re sure he’ll love it.
If your Dad is the outdoorsy type who loves to brag about his latest catch, TaleTellers Fly Shop is the place to take him. This new addition to Downtown Lynchburg offers everything you need to have an epic fishing adventure—flies, rods, tackle boxes, you name it! Additionally, the shop offers classes and guided fishing adventures.
A Close Shave
Some Dads long for the almost-forgotten experience of a hot shave. The good news is, The Parlor Spa is working to revive this practice. In addition to their massage services, they also offer a special facial and shave for men that’s designed to eliminate razor burn and leave Dad feeling relaxed.
For the thrill-seeking Dad, check out James River Adventures. They offer tube, paddleboard, boat and kayak rentals as well as guided tours for those looking to get the most out of their experience. Once you have your gear, set out on the river to experience a view of both the city and the wildlife that surrounds it.
Music for the Soul
Most Dads love listening to music that reminds them of their “glory days”, so treat him to a new record from Speakertree. Better yet, take him inside to browse. He’ll get lost in the wide selection of vinyl, CDs and cassettes. He may even have some great stories to tell you about his finds. Happy Father’s Day!
