This Father’s Day, skip the crowded restaurants and treat your dad to a day on the river for kayaking on the Hudson with the Downtown Boathouse from 9:00 AM–05:30 PM. All you need to bring is your bathing suits or shorts and your sense of adventure!
If your dad is a man who’s always looking to try something new, we’re pretty sure he’s never been on one of Wildman Steve Brill’s fascinating foraging tours. They’re sort of like scavenger hunts except you’ll be searching the city’s parks for wild edibles like dandelions, garlic mustard and jewelweed, and them tossing them up as a tasty salad to devour afterwards. This Sunday’s tour will be a stone’s throw from NYC in Pawling, NY, but if you’d rather stay close to home, Saturday’s tour will be right in Prospect Park.
