Father’s Day Weekend in Tualatin Valley

Saturday, JUNE 15

Plan a day of adventure for dad with an indoor skydive at iFly Indoor Skydiving. Suit up and take a flight. Fun for the whole family, this adventure will keep Dad’s adrenaline pumping.

After the thrill of flight, treat Dad to a pint and a meal at FlyBoy Brewery & Pub. The vintage plane and pin-up theme pairs well with the grub and brews at this hole-in-the-wall, family-friendly restaurant.

Next, spend a few hours at an escape room, where Dad can be the hero and solve the puzzles to grant your escape. Or head over to Topgolf for a friendly game in the state-of-the-art hitting bay, which noshing on tasty bites and entrees.

Sunday, JUNE 16

Jump start your Sunday with a drive along the Vineyard and Valley Scenic Tour Route. Spend quality family time on this 60-mile stretch of the lush Tualatin Valley. There’s an activity to match Dad’s interests: explore nature at the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge or pick berries at Smith Berry Barn or Rowell Brothers Berry Farm.

Next, venture off the route a tad and visit Raptor Ridge Winery for a “Barrel Tasting for Dad.” Spelunk in the cellar with winegrower Scott Shull. You and Dad can preview the progress of the 2018 vintage before it’s even bottled.

Get back on the scenic tour route to explore more of Tualatin Valley’s farmlands. Stop for a bite at Helvetia Tavern, “home of the jumbo burger.” Its juicy, perfectly grilled goodness is a dad-approved. Plus, find Dad’s favorite team from the vast collection of baseball hats lining the tavern’s ceiling.

Whether you’re enjoying this special day with your dad, grandfather or as a dad yourself, be sure to make some memories that help you cherish all the reasons you love spending time with your pops.
