Who’s your (travel) daddy? With Father's Day round the corner, we're pairing yours Pops with his perfect place for a weekend break or total escape.
He watches Mad Men, listens to The Rat Pack, wears Trina Turk and sips a pisco sour:
Take your dad to Palm Springs... A destination under a permanent Instagram filter, this Hollywood playground has all the fixings for an indulgent weekend escape. Check in at the city’s newest and poshest digs, L’Horizon, then craft a desert itinerary of culture stops at the Palm Springs Art Museum and Architecture and Design Center, outdoor adventures in the San Jacinto Mountains and knockout meals at Copley’s, Workshop Kitchen and Bar and the Purple Room.
He watches all things John Wayne, listens to George Jones, wears Levis and sips bourbon neat:
Take your dad to a ranch...Whether city slicker or gentleman farmer, every guy we know will embrace his inner cowboy with a week of horseback riding, fly fishing and white-water rafting. Dads who carry a Black Card should shell out for the five-star cabins at Ranch at Rock Creek or Paws Up, while those feeling less spendy can check into the still-luxe Lone Mountain or Mountain Sky.
He watches Metropolis, listens to Wilco, makes a suit look casual and sips an Old Fashioned:
Take your dad to Chicago... For the architecture buff/foodie/hotel lover in your life, the Second City offers a perfect staycation. Take your pick from a slew of hip new hotels, from Virgin Hotels’ debut in downtown to Soho House’s gorgeous new outpost in the Fulton Market District, and the hipster-favorite Freehand Chicago in River North. Under sunny skies, hit up new alfresco bar, Expat, then go for a wander along the newly expanded Chicago Riverwalk.
He watches Endless Summer, listens to the Drums, wears Saturdays NYC and sips a Dark and Stormy:
Take your dad to Montauk... At Long Island’s easternmost point, Montauk is a city escape for surfing at Ditch Plains by day, bonfires on the beach at dusk, and joining a handsome crowd at hip restaurants like South Edison and Crow’s Nest for dinner after dark. Make the revamped suites at Gurney’s Montauk home base and don’t miss a quick ferry ride over to Shelter Island for rose and cocktails at summer staple, Sunset Beach.
