Pick up the tab and take Dad out for a Father’s Day meal!  Celebrate at Peter B’s Brewpub at the Portola Hotel & Spa where Dad can catch his favorite sporting event including the World Cup, play a game or two of pool or just soak up the Monterey sunshine out on the patio. Gift him a souvenir Growler or Growlette and let him fill it with one of Peter B’s original craft brews – top it off with tickets to the Fourth Annual Monterey Beer Garden and you’ll be golden for the entire year!

There’s no better way to show your dad you love him than to spend some quality time together in a place that you will never forget.  If golf is more up Dad’s alley book the Golfer’s Paradise Package at the Portola and spoil him with a weekend of world class golf and time to kick back and relax Monterey Bay style.

Perhaps Dad is a waterman; explore the Bay by kayak or stand-up paddle board  - with rentals available just steps from the Portola at Adventures by the Sea, it’s as easy as 1-2-3.  Get in an evening hike and catch the sunset at majestic Point Lobos State Reserve or hit the Coastal Recreation Trail for a run or casual walk.

Whatever you do this Father’s Day, there’s one sure way to make it special, show your dad the love by celebrating in one of the most charming and unique places on the planet.
