Father's Day is coming up on June 18. Trying to figure out the perfect Father's Day gift for the father-figures in your life? Look no further! Here are 5 Top Ways to Celebrate Dad in DuPage!
1. Plan a Golf Getaway
Always a favorite and with more than 50 courses to choose from, DuPage is the destination for golfers. Plan a whole day: golf with friends, a stop afterwards for a cold craft beer, and end the day with the whole family at dad's restaurant of choice. For those avid golfers, one day in DuPage just isn’t enough. Make it a getaway and book a stay at one of DuPage’s hotels and resorts. Plus, you can even surprise him with some knowledge about the history of Golf in DuPage.
2. Enjoy Polo Town
Treat dad to an afternoon of tradition with the Oak Brook Polo Club, one of the oldest polo clubs in the United States. Played on the Cecil Smith Field adjacent to the Butler National Golf Course and The Drake Hotel in beautiful Oak Brook, each match sets the stage for a spectacular event and social scene.

3. Explore and Venture
Take your father-figure on an adventure like no other. The Forge: Lemont Quarries is a great place to go to create memories. As the nation’s largest outdoor adventure park, you can try over 300 rope climbing elements of varying difficulty so you can challenge yourself the way you want.
Another great Father's Day activity is a nature walk or hike. With over 500 miles of recreational trails, you can visit one of our many forest preserves. You can also venture down the Illinois Prairie Path, the first successful rail-to-trail conversion in the United States. Looking for other outdoor activities? Rent canoes, kayaks, rowboats, and paddle boats or try your hand at archery.
