Fathers come in many forms – Dads, Granddads, Uncles, Sons, Brothers, Godfathers, Father figures, and mentors – whomever you’re celebrating this Father’s Day, and whatever his interests, Warwick’s sure to have something to make gift giving or spending some quality time together a breeze.

Does Dad like to hit the links? Valley Country Club is a public 18 hole, par 72, tree-lined course with 51 bunkers and three water holes that make for a challenging experience. Stop and have lunch at the on-site restaurant afterwards. Prefer to golf with an ocean breeze to keep you cool? Harbor Lights Marina and Golf Harbor’s 9-hole, par 36 layout provides enough tee choices to suit those of all ages and skill levels. Their Drift Bar offers a great place for a bite to eat and a thirst-quenching beer or cocktail after your round is complete. The 9-hole golf course at Goddard Memorial State Park features 3,021 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 36. The course rating is 40.0 and it has a slope rating of 90. Stop by the appropriately-named The Trap Restaurant on your way home – it’s just minutes away from Goddard Park, offering a creative twist on traditional American pub fare, a full bar, an outdoor, pet-friendly patio, and plenty of televisions!

Perhaps the man of the hour fancies himself more of a Sherlock Holmes than a Tiger Woods. Try the Riddle Room, which mixes unique entertainment with logically-challenging puzzles, creative use of theatrics, and beautiful backdrops. Team up with friends or family members to test your sleuthing skills and be the hero that saves the world or solves the cold case by working together to find clues, solve interactive puzzles, and live each game story! History buffs will enjoy a visit to beautiful Clouds Hill Victorian House Museum, which has been featured in HBO’s “The Gilded Age” and features authentic furnishings from the era, an arboretum, carriage museum, and the center for the outdoors.

Some Dads enjoy a good cigar and a drink. The Havana Cigar Bar has been remodeled to add a large bar that is the gathering place for the public and club members. Card nights, club memberships, and cigar of the month clubs are also offered. By the Bay Cigar Shop is located in Airport Plaza and provides sitting areas with televisions as well as products to purchase.

Or is something athletic more his speed? Check out Central Rock Gym, or try out the open swim and ice skating hours at the Mickey Stevens Sports Complex. Kayak down the Pawtuxet River and then enjoy some well-earned relaxation on Apponaug Brewing Company’s outdoor patio overlooking the river. Or head out to Rocky Point, City Park, or Goddard Park for a stroll or bike ride in the great outdoors, then enjoy a picnic lunch with food you’ve grabbed from one of our terrific restaurants and cafes.

Simply want to relax? Chelo’s by the Water has an extensive menu, a full-service bar, great Bay views, and live music. Captain’s Resto bar has an equally summertime vibe. Or take Dad for breakfast at the newly opened Oakland Beach Diner, which is already becoming a local hotspot! If he prefers to stay home and relax, plan a no-hassle cookout and enjoy award-winning, mouthwatering BBQ fare from Keane’s Woodfired BBQ Catering.

And, finally, it’s not summertime in the Ocean State without a trip on the Bay! Captain Cook Charters prides themselves on having an expert crew and state-of-the-art vessels, where the focus is on the thrill of fishing. Whether Dad’s a seasoned angler, or you want to try something new, Captain Cook Charters works to ensure an unparalleled experience to longtime fishing enthusiasts and first-timers alike. Give them a call and enjoy a day on the water with the Dad in your life.
