For the fishermen

A day on the lake is a day well spent. Treat dad to a guided fishing tour of LKN with a local expert like Captain Gus Gustafson of Fishing with Gus. If you want to tackle the fish on your own, visit Ramsey Creek Park’s fishing pier. Grab some snacks from the concession stand and you’ll be set to fish all day.

For the NASCAR lovers

It’s no secret that the Lake Norman area is a NASCAR fan’s heaven. If dad loves the sport, you can’t pass up a visit to Joe Gibbs Racing. Home of the team’s legendary cars, JGR headquarters offers a race shop viewing area and an extensive souvenir shop.

For the foodies

You can’t go wrong with barbecue on Father’s Day. Save dad the hassle of cooking his own and visit a local joint. Enjoy some eastern NC style barbecue brisket at Lancaster’s BBQ or some hickory smoked pulled pork at award-winning, Mac’s Speed Shop.
