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.

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.
