Life on ACK: Father's Day

Life on ACK: Father's Day Activities

Father's Day is this weekend and we hope you have plans with your dad. Last week, we brought you our Father's Day Style Stack with gift ideas for dad.  This week, we've got some Father's Day activity suggestions. 

Fishing

Stock up on gear at Bill Fisher Tackle and then head out to Great Point or Smith's Point for some surf-casting with Dad. If you prefer to get out on the water, book a charter. There are many to choose from including Fishing Nantucket with Captain Matt and Just Do It Too Sportfishing.

Golf

Nantucket has some great golf courses. Although Sankaty Golf Club and the Nantucket Golf Club are both private courses, there are still courses available to the public. Check out Miacomet Golf Club for a full 18-hole expereience on a beautifully mainted course. For a more laid-back course, try the Old 'Sconset Golf Course. Better known as Skinner's to locals, this course offers 9 holes with a more rustic feel.  

Boating/Sailing

Take dad out for a day on the water. Grab some sandwiches at Something Natural or Fresh and head out for a day on the water. While it's always nice to have a friend with a boat, rentals are availalbe at Island Boat Rental on Straight Wharf.

Prefer to be powered by the wind? Nantucket Community Sailing offers sailboat rentals at Jetties Beach. 

Your Ideas

We've catered our ideas to Nantucket, but of course these can be applied to wherever you live. What are your plans for Father's Day? Any suggestions that we missed?
