If you will be in Pennsylvania for Father’s Day, it is time to begin thinking about how to spend this special weekend. Depending on what your dad enjoys, there are a ton of different options for Father’s Day in Pennsylvania.

At Woodmont Ridge Apartments in Upper Macungie, we always want to make sure our residents know about all of the fun and exciting things going on in our area and the state. Here are some activities to consider if you will be spending time with dad this Father’s Day – Sunday, June 18th, 2017 – in Pennsylvania.


1. Upper Macungie Park

Upper Macungie Park is a beautiful park you will not want to miss out on. If you live in Pennsylvania, be sure to take advantage of the incredible scenery and sights in our state. If your dad loves the outdoors, plan the perfect excursion to one of our 121 state parks. We like Upper Macungie Park because it boasts a gorgeous waterfall, expansive lake and lots of hiking trails. Take in the natural beauty and bond over some conversation with your dad for Father’s Day.


2. HBG Brewers Fest

Do you and your dad prefer to bond over some brews? You can do that and more while supporting a great cause this Father’s Day weekend. The HGB Brewers Fest is an event featuring a ton of breweries, live music and food. Once you and your dad buy a ticket, you will each get a sampling mug with access to beer from over 40 breweries. You can even buy a designated driver to make sure you get home safe if you have too much fun. The proceeds are all donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. You can get your tickets for this year’s HBG Brewers Fest here.
