Father’s Day is just around the corner, which means it’s time to spoil Dad on his special day. Enjoy a day of golf, kayak or paddle boarding on the river, or go for a bike ride around town! Then, treat him to dinner at one of Chattanooga's amazing restaurants!. Here are just a few ways to celebrate Father’s Day in Chattanooga this year.

Whether you’ve been planning something for months or you’re scrambling at the last minute, these are just a few ways you can show Dad how much you care.  After all, Dad deserves a day of celebration just for him. Happy Father’s Day!

Outdoor Adventure

Who doesn’t love a dose of outdoor adventure? After all, Chattanooga was named the Best Town Ever by Outside magazine – twice. Schedule a private guided hike with Experience Chattanooga or find a Chattanooga area hike he will love on your own. Pair local craft beers with a bike ride through the scenic city with a bike and brew tour. There’s no shortage of amazing outdoor activities that dad’s going to love in Chattanooga.


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.

Want a different type of golfing experience? Challenge dad to a round at Top Golf or head to Albatross Golf Sim and Bar.

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!

Take a Cruise

For a relaxing journey down the Tennessee River, experience the Southern Belle Riverboat and treat yourself to views of the Tennessee River Gorge--treat dad to the Father's Day cruise with a buffet meal! Explore Chattanooga via land and water with the Chattanooga Ducks. Or, if you feel like touring the river via your own manpower, rent a kayak or paddleboard from L2 Outside.

Father's Day Brunch & Dinner

Chattanooga has no shortage of good brunch spots. Treat dad to a James Beard Award-winning chef’s version of brunch and Father's Day Dadmosas at Big Bad Breakfast at the Chattanooga location or in South Pittsburgh (and swing him by the Lodge Cast Iron Factory Store next door for a gift!). Take dad to Bridgeman's Chophouse for exclusive menu items, signature cocktails, and more! How about some live music to accommodate your Father's Day meal at 1885 Grill?

Main Street Meats is a no-brainer if your dad is looking for a top notch burger or prime cut. Head to Number Ten Chattanooga for a classic steakhouse vibe or Zaya 1943 Korean Steakhouse
