Looking to spend some quality time with Dad this Father's Day? Discover great restaurants, outdoor adventures, awesome breweries and more in our Father's Day experience guide!

Is Dad outdoorsy?

Treat dad to a round at one of Howard County's world class golf courses:

Or lace up your hiking boots with Dad and head out for some Father's Day Fun with the Howard County Conservancy at Belmont. A great way to get the whole family involved in the celebration, there will be fun available for all ages. Keep the adventures going and visit Centennial Lake or Lake Elkhorn for an evening of fishing with Dad. 

Does Dad prefer a little excitement or competition?

Challenge Dad to a game of bowling at Brunswick Columbia Lanes located in Columbia & Ellicott City featuring 32 lanes, arcade games and signature drinks. 

Suit up with Dad for a friendly game of lazer tag at Shadowland Laser Adventures 

Head to Terrapin Adventures for some high-flying fun on the ropes course, zip line and giant swing. 

Work together to beat the clock at Breakout Games. Part problem solving, part adrenaline, and end-to-end fun Dad will love.

Is Dad into craft beer? 

For the Dad who prefers a nice cold pint, get him on the HowardOnTap Craft Brew Trail.  He'll discover brewpubs, up-and-coming farm breweries and much more about Howard County's quickly growing craft beer and spirit scene. Visit at least 4 stops along the trail and there's a souvenir glass in it for him.  

Does Dad prefer to celebrate over a great meal?
