This year we propose a road trip to your favorite little mountain town for Father’s Day. Father’s Day normally occurs on the 3rd Sunday of June, and this makes it June 19th this year. Your dad is always there for you, whether that’s a shoulder to cry on, telling dad jokes to make you smile, or slipping you an extra $20 for gas. It’s about time we treat him to a weekend getaway to the Sangre de Cristo Mountains! From fishing to good food and even better beer, there are many ways to honor your dad while in Red River. Here are some ideas to celebrate your dad when you are in our neck of the woods!
*Fishing in the heart of Red River, New Mexico is a must! There are plenty of places to cast a line and enjoy the mountain air as you spend time with your dad. Be sure to purchase a fishing license before you head out with your fishing gear. You can purchase yours and your dad’s online or at one of the shops in town. Didn’t think about going fishing and needing a pole? Lucky for you there are shops in town just for this reason. Pack a lunch, or grab a burger from the Dairy Bar on your way to the river and start making memories.
Embark on an Adventure at Hidden Treasure Aerial Park
Spend time with your dad as you experience a thrilling adventure in the air. Three levels of difficulty are available so the whole family can enjoy the ropes course. You won’t want to miss the grand finale at the top of the 3rd deck. This zip line will take you to the other side of the ropes course. From there you will descend from the tower to the ground just to do it all over again!
Treat Dad to Dinner
Enjoy pizza from Capo’s for dinner one evening after a day of fly fishing. Be sure to grab a piece of their cheesecake for dessert to share with your dad. Looking for a soft lunch spot? Check out Red River’s newest restaurant Vine and Dine, located on Main Street in the old Timbers building! Enjoy sandwiches, salads, soups, and fine wine with dad!
If dad is craving Mexican food, call Sundance and make a reservation for dinner one night. They serve enchiladas, tacos, and burritos, as well as salmon and steak.
ROV riding in the BLM public ground with views of the Rio Grande and to the base of Ute Park, an inactive volcano. Whether you’re bringing your own ROV or you have scheduled a day and time to rent one from Weezie’s Wild Rides, you will have to drive out to Questa to meet for the ROVs and begin your trail along the Rio Grande.
Art & Wine Festival
Enjoy the town of Red River as your taste buds experience some of the best wine in the state. You may purchase one-day tickets or a 3 day pass for the whole family. Not only will you get to taste wine but there will also be live music for you to enjoy.
You’ll need a place to stay when you celebrate Father’s Day and we would love to have you stay with us at any of our properties! Book a cabin or call our office today for availability and rates.
*Please contact any local businesses for hours of operation.
*While the forest is closed, fishing can only be done from the town side or the ponds. You may not fish from the mountain/forest side. Please verify fishing guidelines with the town or local angler store.
