Vineyard Tested, Dad Approved: The Best Father’s Day Ideas on the Island
He coached your tee-ball team, helped you struggle through that high school chemistry homework, and was the first to offer a hand on college move-in day. For one weekend (and one weekend only) — let the Dad jokes slide. This Father’s Day, give dad a gift that doesn’t fit in a box. From catching that legendary fish to chowing down on his favorite meal, the best Father’s Day ideas on the island are the moments that will be replayed on that reel of favorite family memories.
If You Bought Dad a New Golf Bag: Play Putt Putt With Pops
Mom may prefer her tea time, but the best Father’s Day ideas on the island swing toward tee time. For golf aficionados, a long walk on one of our Martha’s Vineyard greens is as relaxing as a day at the beach (and a few of the best happen to be right here in good old Edgartown). Reserve a spot at Edgartown Golf Club for picturesque views of Vineyard Sound between each swing. If dad prefers the greenest of the greens, direct the golf cart toward Vineyard Golf Club. Not only is this walking course the newest on the island, it’s also one of the only 100% organic golf courses in the U.S.!
If You Bought Dad a Tackle Box: Reel in a Father’s Day Catch on a Bigger Boat
Leave those minnows at home — we’ve got bigger fish to fry on Martha’s Vineyard. If Dad’s been reminiscing about gearing up the tackle boxes and hitting the river, he may be fishing for one of the best Father’s Day ideas on the island. Save a spot with Tomahawk Fishing Charters to chase the big fish with local fishing legend Capt. Buddy Vanderhoop. The hunt for seabass and blue marlin will keep dad on his toes, and he’ll return home, telling friends that he went fishing on a charter that has seen the likes of Keith Richards and James Taylor.
If You Bought Dad a Grill: Indulge in Foodie Inspiration
They say the best way to learn is through experience, and we heartily agree when it comes to cooking. Dad may fancy himself the grill master back home, but some of the best grillin’ grub inspiration is waiting on Martha’s Vineyard. Treat Dad to Fella’s On Union in West Tisbury for Backyard BBQ. Between chicken, ribs, and pulled pork grilled right on the patio, he’ll return home with more than a few new menu items to recreate.
If You Bought Dad a Peanuts and Cracker Jack Snack Box: Catch an MV Sharks Game
Take Dad out to the local ball game. The Martha’s Vineyard Sharks are a collegiate baseball team that play from June through the beginning of August — wooden bats and all! As part of the Future Collegiate Baseball League of New England, you may be watching some of the next drafts to Major League Baseball. Hop on board as fans by sharing a baseball game at The Shark Tank, located on the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School grounds.
No matter how much planning goes into bringing the best Father’s Day ideas to life, some of the most priceless moments are spent simply hanging out together, having a drink at your Martha’s Vineyard hotel.
