Father’s Day is almost here, so we hope you’ve made plans! If not, we at Believe Inn Monterey and Carmel Hill Lodge have some suggestions on great activities for Dad on his special day.

Newly renovated, the two courses have elegant bunkering and graceful greens. Or you could take Dad to Pebble Beach, which has five courses in all (831-622-8723 or http://www.pebblebeach.com) and is the dream destination of any golfer.
  • Maybe Dad wants something more strenuous than a game of golf? He’s in luck! Monterey has wonderful spots for a day hike. Jacks Peak County Park has dramatic views and is a perfect spot for birding (http://www.co.monterey.ca.us/parks/jackspeak.html). Or maybe head to Garrapata State Park, with its gorgeous redwood groves and breathtaking Santa Lucia Mountains (http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=579), or the rock formations and beguiling caves at Pinnacles National Monument. For a tougher hike, try the steep trails at Garland Ranch Regional Park. The great wildlife and panoramic views are well worth the climb!
  • After all that exercise, treat Dad to a great meal! Indulge him at Chart House Restaurant, Monterey (831-372-3362), where he can choose from seafood (Seared Mahi!) or steaks (slow roasted Prime Rib, anyone?) for his dinner. If he’s craving Italian, then the menu at Alberto’s Ristorante (Pacific Grove, (831-373-3993), with classics such as Linguine Pomodoro, should satisfy him. Otherwise, Edgar’s – Quail Lodge in Carmel (831-620-8910; open for lunch and dinner), which supports farms and fisheries, has delights sure to please, like the Tilapia BLT.

Whatever you do, spoil your Dad and thank him for all he’s done for you over the years. And if you have weekend guests, Believe Inn Monterey and Carmel Hill Lodge are great places for them to be spoiled! Call us on 831-373-3252 or 1-888-551-4455 to make reservations.
