5 Great Father’s Day Ideas to Try in Greater Morgantown

Give Dad a Day to Remember!

Father’s Day is just around the corner and if you’re like many, you are a last-minute shopper. It can be difficult to determine what your dad would want as a gift, so why not make memories with him instead? With these top ideas, you and your dad will have something to talk about for a lifetime.

Head to Brunch


Greater Morgantown restaurants are offering Dad-approved deals you can work into your weekend plans. Check out Preston County Inn’s Fathers Day Brunch on Sunday, June 16 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. for a delicious morning meal with your father. For reservations, call 304-329-2220.

Lakeview Golf Resort will be hosting a Father’s Day Buffet beginning at 10 a.m. Fathers are also offered a complimentary Greens Fee – check here for more details.

Grab a Drink  


Take Dad to Tin 202 for amazing tapas and drinks that are perfect for your Father’s Day celebration. Try one of the classic or house cocktails, or ask them to make a cocktail crafted just for you and your dad.

Head to Mario’s Fishbowl for a frosty fishbowl, and order some mouth-watering chicken wings while you’re there! Try the craft beer and paninis at Apothecary Ale House and Cafe. For a delicious steak dinner with your choice of signature bourbon, visit Bourbon Prime with Dad.

Sit Back and Relax


Who says men can’t have a spa day? Give your dad the gift of a massage, pedicure, haircut, or facial at Tuscan Sun Spa and Salon. Tuscan is offering a Father’s Day deal: if you purchase a $100 gift card, you’ll get a free men’s haircut.

Adventure in Greater Morgantown


Looking for adventure? Soar through the trees and overcome obstacles at WVU Zipline Canopy Tour with your dad. If you’re not ready to leave just yet, rent a yurt (bunkhouse) and spend time with the family in the West Virginia hills.

Introduce Dad to the exciting activity of axe throwing! Mountain Man Axe Throwing is offering a Father’s Day Special – all dads that come in with a family of 4+ throw for free. Call and schedule ahead of time to ensure you get the chance to throw! Pro tip: This activity is for families or groups with individuals ages 16+. Those ages 16 and 17 must have an adult with them and sign a waiver to participate. Wear close-toed shoes!

For a less adrenaline-pumping activity, rent kayaks, canoes, or a boat on Cheat Lake for a fun family day in the sun. Another option is to try the many hiking and biking trails around Greater Morgantown that are great for quality time together.

Enjoy a lake day at the Bruceton Mills Lake with PADLZ Canoe & Kayak Rentals Fun with your Father Weekend. Offered on Saturday, June 15 and Sunday, June 16, this family and pet-friendly event encourages you to take in the mountain scenery and relax, paddle and swim for the day.

Bring the whole family to the West Virginia Botanic Garden for the Family Forager Fun Run, a one-mile run for kids ages 6-12 to discover the joys and traditions of the Appalachian woodlands. Both pre-registration and onsite registration are available.

Hit the course with Dad for some Father’s Day golf memories. Greater Morgantown offers a variety of golf courses in the area where you can swing into the fairway.

Celebrate at a Baseball Game


If you plan on celebrating Father’s Day a few days before the holiday, take dad to a West Virginia Black Bears vs. Mahoning Valley game at Monongalia County Ballpark. Friday night at the ballpark offers fireworks, and Saturday night is Super Hero Night.
