Father’s Day is just around the corner. The Texas Hill Country offers activities, food, and gifts for any type of man. Here are a few of our favorite ideas for dads on their day.

1. Colorado Bend State Park

If the father in mind loves the outdoors, consider taking him to Colorado Bend State Park. Over 5,000 acres, the park offers miles and miles of hike and bike trails, numerous swimming holes to keep dad cool and ample camping. There are also places to climb for the avid climber and cave exploration tours available.

The park is famous for its “Western” feel. Many veterans of Colorado Bend say that the spot has more in common with something found in Nevada or California. Whatever the case, Colorado Bend State Park has a little bit of everything to offer any father/outdoorsman on his special day.

2. The Hill Country Craft Beer Trail

For fathers who are beer fans, The Hill Country Craft Beer Trail is right up their alley. The full trail consists of 15 craft brewers who make their home in the Hill Country.

If you don’t have time to hit all 15 breweries it’s okay. The trail offers suggested routes and a shuttle service to take thirsty patrons to their next destination. If dad loves craft beer, then this trail is the perfect fit.

3. Hang Gliding

If dear old dad has a thirst for adrenaline, then consider taking him for a hang gliding lesson at Austin Air Sports or Fly Texas.  Both are located near Austin.

In learning to hang-glide, the thrill-seeking father can earn his wings by receiving practical knowledge on how to fly and then taking to the air to breathe in the beauty of the Hill Country landscape from the best seat in the house–high up in the sky.
