Top 5 Toast-Worthy Trips for
Father's Day, Hideaways-Style

Irish Whiskey Tour

Portsmouth, New Hampshire -(June 2013)-"This Father's Day, forget a new tie . . .

"This Father's Day, forget a new tie and instead send Dad packing on a toast-worthy trip to a guy-approved destination with unforgettable sights, accommodations, and libations," says Mike Thiel, Founder and President of , the ultimate source for tempting travel. "As we wander the globe, we've uncovered some exceptional experiences tempting enough to lure Dad off the recliner and into a tasting room for a celebratory libation or two."

Here are's Top 5 Toast-Worthy Trips for Father's Day.

1. Mile-High Buzz
Denver, Colorado, is nicknamed "the Napa Valley of Beer," with nearly 75 big-name and craft breweries within a 100-mile radius of downtown. Dad-Worthy Experience: Send Dad along the Denver Beer Trail. Brews Cruise hosts three-hour guided tours with equal parts enthusiasm and education. Dad-Worthy Accommodations: For more than a century, Brown Palace Hotel & Spa has set the standard for luxury in Denver.

2. The Maine Event
Those in the know herald Maine for its great lobster and its bounty of beer! Dad-Worthy Experience: Direct Dad to follow the Maine Brewers' Guild's Beer Trail to 25 breweries. Along the cobblestone streets of Portland's Old Port alone, he'll find three breweries within a half-mile walk. Dad-Worthy Accommodations: Dad can feel like royalty at the family owned and operated Captain Lord Mansion , a romantic inn in Kennebunkport.

3. The World of Whisky
Scotland is famous for its whisky, with its distinctive nose, color, texture, and taste. Dad-Worthy Experience: As Dad travels the Scottish Whisky Trail-from the great distilleries of The Highlands to the Scottish Heritage Whisky Centre in Edinburgh-he'll gain insight into the world of whisky. Dad-Worthy Accommodations: Set on 800 acres along the Ayrshire coast, The Turnberry has nearly everything, including world-class golf.

4. 40 Shades of Whiskey
Ireland's 40 shades of green are dazzling, as is its whiskey (Ireland is credited with inventing the stuff, after all). Dad-Worthy Experience: The Ireland Whiskey Trail is Dad's free touring guide to all that's enjoyable and exceptional about whiskey in Ireland. Dad-Worthy Accommodations: Here are a few of our favorites: Dromoland Castle (Co. Clare), Adare Manor (Co. Limerick), and Ashford Castle (Co. Mayo).

5. Dad, the Pirate
Sitting in the Eastern Caribbean, Martinique impresses with a charming blend of Caribbean and French culture and lifestyle . . . and rum (aarrggg!). Dad-Worthy Experience: Invite Dad to follow La Route des Rhums, a self-guided rum-themed tour with 11 distilleries throughout Martinique. Dad-Worthy Accommodations: With nearly every amenity Dad could desire, Cap Est Lagoon Resort & Spa is the premier resort hotel on the island.

Bonus: For Active Dads!
If your Dad's a golfer, we recommend: The Turnberry (Scotland), Casa de Campo (Dominican Republic), and Banyan Tree Mayakoba (Mexico). If your Dad's a water enthusiast, we recommend: Laluna (Grenada), Bitter End Yacht Club (BVI), and Scrub Island (BVI). Finally, if your Dad's into fishing, riding, and a must-try experience called glamping ("glamorous camping"), we recommend: The Resort at Paws Up (Montana).

Tip: Plan a Bespoke Trip
Hideaways' in-house boutique travel agency has a penchant for personalized travel planning, and can tailor an escape to perfectly suit your Dad's interests. Call 800-843-4433 to plan a bespoke trip, or to get Dad started with a Hideaways Travel Certificate.

"Each recommendation is an experience at a dreamy destination that offers plenty more than libations," says Mike. "And, if you're good, Dad just might ask you to go with him."
