Fuel His Day
Help Dad start his day off right with a relaxing brunch starring one of our favorite recipes, such as the Smoked Salmon Fritatta. Offer him our spicy Bloody Mary for a morning cocktail he’s sure to love.
Grab your bikes and enjoy some fresh air with Dad on a scenic coastal trail. If he prefers a slower pace instead, try one of our favorite seaside hikes, such as Sea Pines Forest Preserve in South Carolina where four miles of marsh-side trails await.
