7 Places to Take Dad on Father's Day

Posted Jun 14th, 2019 in Weekend Wish List


With the USA playing Chile in the women’s World Cup Soccer this Sunday at noon and the final round of the US Open Golf taking place at Pebble Beach, California, Father’s Day is an easy fix for sports fans. Dad will be quite happy so long as he gets to watch the game! We suggest you make it a family affair in Downtown Wilmington.
