As summer begins to enter the horizon, thoughts of vacation days and mornings that start late may drift into your mind, but there is another thing that summer brings that may be a little worrisome. Father’s Day, held on the 3rd Sunday of June, is a day that we often try not to think about until the last moment, knowing how difficult it can be to find a gift for the main father figure in our lives. Dads are a funny sort, never asking for much while still doing everything for their children, and buying them the perfect gift has never been easy—until today! A Dripping Springs vacation and a stay in one of our I Love Dripping Springs dad pads is destined to make the old man in your life shed secret tears of joy during a Father’s Day in Dripping Springs, as he would never cry in front of you!
The Texas Hill Country landscape is one filled with many opportunities to make dad happy, starting with a fishing expedition to one of the many rivers or lakes that can be found in the area. Pedernales River runs through the Milton Reimer’s Ranch Park and is a popular spot to drop your line, and if your dad is the solitary sort, meaning he doesn’t want to talk or socialize during his angling moments, the rest of the family can enjoy hiking, mountain biking, and exploring areas that are far enough away from him that he won’t be bothered, but close enough that when he shuts the lid of his tackle box, you can all head out for a delicious lunch, perhaps at the nearby Route 12 Filling Station! Located just 10 minutes away from the park at 31560 Ranch Road, this isn’t a gas station, it is a diner that offers some of the best burgers in Texas. Closed on Sundays, the Route 12 Filling Station doesn’t offer anything to fill your cars fuel tank, but it does offer a fantastic menu of foods that will happily fill your stomach; it’s international menu includes Cajun pasta, Italian pizzas, and all-American burgers, steaks, and even chili dogs, so we can’t imagine that your dad will have any problems finding a dish he will devour!
The Art of Beer This Father’s Day in Dripping Springs
If your dad is anything like ours, he has developed the art of drinking beer to new levels of perfection, and Dripping Springs offers many ways to perfect his skills! Treat dad to a tour of breweries, perhaps beginning with a visit to Twisted X Brewing Company, located at 23455 Ranch to Market Road. Brewing up their own small batch beers, all of which can be sampled in their tasting room that is open daily, they often offer special events that include holiday celebrations, trivia events, and even art adventures that take place on the first Sunday of every month. Bell Springs Brewing Company, 3700 Bell Springs Road, shares acreage with the popular Bell Springs Winery, so the family can divide and conquer as they drink their way through to Texas Hill Country. Kids and dogs are invited to join in the fun (not the drinking) on their outdoor patio, and a food truck provides delicious food that all will enjoy! Finally, Ghost Note Brewing, found at 23663 Ranch Road 12, provides new beers for dad to love, live entertainment, and special events and festivals that are destined to be the highlight of your Dripping Springs Fathers Day escape!
