Live in Colorado and wondering what to get dad for Father’s Day? If you have a dad who likes baseball, fly fishing or whiskey you might want to gift dad with a getaway to enjoy the things he loves most.

The Ultimate Baseball Experience at The Rally

Get in the game at all new Rally Hotel in Denver. Score dad two infield box tickets (behind home plate) to the Rockies home game on the day of his arrival and a $50 credit to The Original or The Rally Bar. Stay just steps away from Coors Field and explore Denver’s newest playground, McGregor Square. With shopping, dining and entertainment options just outside your doorstep, we’ve got your gameday plans made.

The hotel’s location next door to Coors Field isn’t The Rally’s only geographic advantage. It’s also part of the new McGregor Square development, which features restaurants, shops and a circular plaza with a 110-foot LED screen that will show live sporting games and other entertainment. The Rally’s guests will be right in the heart of one of Denver’s most exciting scenes. The property takes its name from an age-old baseball superstition – the rally cap – in which fans wear their caps backwards or inside out as a talisman for their team to pull off a come-from-behind victory.

“With its location in the heart of Denver, The Rally Hotel is meant to be a community gathering place for guests and locals alike,” said Dick Monfort, a partner in the development team of McGregor Square. “From the stunning rooftop views on the skybridge rooftop and pool deck, down to the multitude of restaurants spilling out into McGregor Square, our hotel is uniquely situated to be a destination for year-round excitement and fun.”

Flights and Flies Creekside at Antlers at Vail

Whether you gift dad on Father’s Day or for a future date, the Flights & Flies package hooks dad up with the Gore Creek Fisherman for a half-day fly-fishing wade trip on scenic local waters, including the upper and lower Colorado, Eagle and Roaring Fork Rivers. Gore Creek Fisherman, known for helping anglers enjoy the finest trout fishing in the Vail Valley for over 35 years, provides flies, waders, boots, rod and reel (guest must purchase Colorado fishing license) along with the guided experience to where fish are biting.

For the ultimate in guest comfort, all Antlers at Vail condominiums include living room with gas fireplace, private balcony with propane grill, dining area and full-size kitchen.

For the ideal follow-up to a refreshing day on the river taking in the Colorado mountain scenery and angling for trout, Antlers at Vail has again teamed up with the award-winning and philanthropic 10th Mountain Whiskey & Spirit Co for the “flights” portion of the package. The boutique Vail distillery offers an exceptional collection of house-branded whiskey, moonshine and vodka to enjoy in the cozy lounge and pub-style tasting room that is genuinely steeped in the Army infantry division’s Colorado past. The “Flights & Flies” package includes two vouchers treating guests to a flight of five of the distillery’s locally crafted spirits, a souvenir rocks glass and a $5 gift certificate good toward a merchandise purchase.
