If you’re looking for some last-minute Father’s Day gift ideas, you’ve come to the right place. Why not give Dad the gift of adventure! Pair one of these books with a picnic lunch or a weekend getaway, and you’re golden:
Best Tent Camping: Kentucky—If you’re looking to sleep under the stars without traveling too far from home, Best Tent Camping: Kentucky leads you to the best tent-camping destinations in the state. It also describes fun outdoor activities nearby each campsite!
One Best Hike: Yosemite’s Half Dome—Help Dad cross an item off his bucket list by giving him One Best Hike: Yosemite’s Half Dome along with one of those elusive permits. Since Half Dome is one of the most difficult hikes in Yosemite, this guidebook will prepare Dad from Day 1 of conditioning to his final push toward the summit.
Walking New Orleans—If Dad isn’t the hiking type, pick up a copy of Walking New Orleans and learn all about the history and culture of the neighborhoods beyond Bourbon Street. With points of interest and restaurants clearly marked along the walks, you can be sure to wine and dine Dad at locals’ favorite spots.
The Stand-Up Paddler’s Guide to Southern California—Stand-up paddling is the fastest-growing water sport, and with good reason! It’s a killer workout, you get to explore different waterways, and your vantage point allows you to see underwater. If Dad is a SUP newbie, the beginning chapters will teach him everything from how to get on the board without falling off to how to strike an impressive yoga pose.
The Ultimate Fly-Fishing Guide to the Great Smoky Mountains—Who says the Great Smoky Mountains are just for hiking? The park and surrounding areas are also one of the best fly-fishing destinations in the country! This guidebook will help Dad learn all the best places, seasons, and weather situations to catch wild trout.
