Last-minute Father's Day gift getaways

Posted: Updated:
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

Father's Day is this Sunday and if you're still wondering what to get dad look no further than a "gift-away" from the West Michigan Tourist Association.

Michigan is ranked #5 in the nation for the most breweries, microbrews and brewpubs, so spoil dad with a trip to Holland to experience the best of the "Great Beer State." Treat dad to a brew house and distillery tour at New Holland Brewing Company. Celebrate June 16 during the Hatter Days Street Party.

For the history buff, take dad to the west side of the state.

The Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners has more than 250 extraordinary cars, including the new Automotive Heritage Center for dad to explore. Exhibits showcase cars from the 1890s classic Duesenbery to the muscle cars of the '60s and '70s.

After the museum treat dad to a meal at the restored 1941 George & Sally's Blue Moon Diner located on a 90-acre historic park-like campus.

The Air Zoo of Kalamazoo showcases aviation history, celebrating air and space flights with more than 50 aircraft on display from World War II bombers to the modern SR-71B Blackbird.

Harbor Springs is a charming waterfront community where dad can enjoy an evening of wine tasting, local foods, live local music and more at the upcoming Waterfront Wine Festival June 23.

Relive the simple pleasures of life and take dad back in time with a trip to Mackinac Island.

Visit the annual Mackinac Island Lilac Festival this weekend, or take advantage of a special anniversary package the weekend of July 13-15 to celebrate the Grand Hotel's 125th anniversary.
