Posted May 22, 2018 3:58 p.m. EDT

Shake up your Father’s Day celebrations this year with special vacation packages designed for Dad.

From a private fishing charter on Lake Huron in Michigan to unlimited golfing in San Diego, hotels across the country are offering deals for memorable Father’s Day trips. Following are four:

‘Lake to Plate’ Dining in Michigan

At the Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island in Michigan, consider booking a private fishing charter package. The “Lake to Plate Culinary Experience” includes a five-hour private fishing charter on Lake Huron, accommodations for two nights, and dinner, from your catch of course, cooked by a resort chef. Prices start at $475 per person based on double occupancy, and are available through Sept. 29. All fish caught and not eaten for dinner — expect lake trout, chinook salmon, coho salmon and more — will be packaged for you to take home.

Unlimited Golf in San Diego

The All Play, No Pay package at Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego includes unlimited golf for two adults. Choose between the 18-hole resort course or the 27-hole Oaks North course, or play them both during your stay. The package includes one night of accommodations and starts at $329 per night (compared with the regular starting rate of $279 per night and $118 per each round of golf).

Bourbon and Poolside Drinks in New Orleans

In New Orleans, the Windsor Court Hotel is offering a “Suite Summer” package. Starting at $239 per night (compared with the $465-per-night regular rate), the package includes suite accommodations plus a $50-per-night credit for poolside drinks, dining or spa treatments. Over Father’s Day weekend, the package also includes a complimentary flight of bourbons.

Spa Treatments and Monkey Sightseeing in Guatemala

For an international Father’s Day trip, Las Lagunas Boutique Hotel in Guatemala is offering a three-nights-for-the-price-of-two package, available through June 30. Rates start at $630 for a three-night stay, compared with the regular rate of $945. The package includes a boat tour to nearby Monkey Island to see its jungle monkeys, and on Father’s Day weekend all male spa treatments are 30 percent off.
