Treat Your Dad: Father’s Day in Columbia SC
Wednesday, May 11, 2022 12:00 AM by Kelly Barbrey
It’s time to celebrate the dads in our lives with thoughtful recognition and a few of their favorite things. From BBQ and beer to outdoor adventure and art, Columbia SC has a number of dad-worthy tricks up its sleeve to show dad just how much you love him.
Nothing says summer like a little road trip for some BBQ. Celebrate dad with a BBQ feast from Big Bull's Bang'n BBQ. Grab it to-go and head to one of Columbia SC's beautiful picnic spots for an afternoon he won't forget.
For the on-trend dad, Granger Owings has items such as coveted Barbour jackets, Peter Millar sportswear and fragrances. Help him add that extra Columbia SC touch with a pair of Heart of SC dress socks, available in our online store. Out in Lexington, take your dad on a shopping spree at Craig Reagin Clothiers. He can get fitted for a new suit or prep for summertime with a new swimsuit.
Speaking of swimsuits, for a day of outdoor adventure the whole family can enjoy, book a trip down the river with Palmetto Outdoors and plan to paddle, kayak or tube in the warm Columbia SC sunshine.
We know he loves you, but perhaps it’s time to give dad a little time away from the fam. For the dad who’s ready for a clean shave and a fresh haircut, book him a trip to Frank’s Gentlemen’s Salon in the Vista to neaten up that ‘do. Throw in a gift card to Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea so he can grab a pick-me-up on the way into town.
Sophisticated dads will love a set of Whiskey Wood decanter tags to keep his spirits both uplifted and well-organized.
If dad is looking to spruce up his office, look into gifting a piece from a local Columbia SC artist, like Ty Davis Bey, and dads who are all about Columbia SC will love heading to work with a Landmark Steel Travel Mug in hand (full of local coffee, of course).
