Clarks Hill Lake- Rent a boat from Clarks Hill Marina or a jet ski from Keg Creek Watersports and take to the high seas. Well…not exactly but you can navigate the largest lake in Georgia, Clarks Hill Lake! The beauty and tranquility of this 71,000 acre lake is sure to provide Dad with a day of peace and relaxation.

P.S. Do not argue over the name of the lake. Us Georgian’s know it as Clarks Hill Lake but if he wants to call it J. Strom Thurmond Lake, just let him. It is his “day” after all.


Active Climbing- Why not challenge Dad to a bouldering bout at Active Climbing, the areas only indoor climbing gym? May we suggest a competition to the top of “the twins”?  Now, now…go easy on your old man. Be sure to challenge yourselves, but have fun. And… don’t leave without testing your skills at the Ninja training Center. Obstacles include: the salmon ladder, jumping spider, cliff hanger, and the warped wall. Get active with Dad this year, a memory he won’t soon forget! Probably because he will be sore for days. We’re just sayin’!


Tip Top Taps- Make Dad  'hoppy' with a trip to Tip Top Taps. Sit a spell and sample a cold brew from one of their 20 rotating taps. Then, let him fill his favorite in a growler to enjoy at home. Tip Top Taps strives to offer a wide selection of craft beers from pale ales to porters, ambers to imperial IPAs. Dad is sure to find something he’ll love.
