Rutherford County Father’s Day Round Up
Father’s Day is right around the corner, and we know how hard it is to shop for the man who already has everything. After all, he’s got you for a kid, right? But seriously though, if you’re looking for a way to make this Father’s Day meaningful, Rutherford County has you covered with a whole list of ideas.
Motorcycle dads will find everything they need for their two-wheeled dreams at Sloan’s Motorcycle & ATV. Give the gift of Saturday rides through the Tennessee countryside. Buy, sell, trade-in, or outfit dad’s bike with top-of-the-line equipment. Sloan’s has a huge inventory of pre-owned and brand-new bikes. They also feature a new rider training course for those who have never hit the road before.

Sports dads can step up to the plate and practice their home run hitting over at Triple Threat Training. Nothing takes the edge off a hard day quite like some time in the batting cages or at the indoor driving range. Grab dad a membership so he can practice his swings year-round. If your dad is a golfer, get him out on the green for some quality time at Old Fort Golf Club. Tucked up against the banks of the Stones River and adjacent to the earthen Fortress Rosecrans, Old Fort offers a lush and scenic experience. Want even more holes to hit? Indian Hills and Cedar Crest are gorgeous, resort-style country clubs waiting for you to hit that perfect shot!
Is your dad “The Dude?” Well, take him to the lanes at Strike and Spare for some first-class bowling, arcade games, and Dark Ops Tactical Laser Tag. Or go check out the lanes at Stars and Strikes for additional bumper car, virtual reality, arcade fun and more! Then put dad’s escapist skills to the test with Murfreesboro Escape Room. Nothing says teamwork and family time like racing against the clock to escape from a locked room.

Does your dad love music and beer, perhaps both at the same time? Hop Springs is one-part outdoor concert, two-parts craft brewery and a whole lot of fun. Get him the perfect Father’s Day gift - tickets for the Grammy and CMA Award-nominated Josh Turner over at Hop Springs on June 26th. Brew dads will enjoy the specialty beer selection offered at Liquid Smoke. With over 230 craft, import and domestic beers along with local favorites on draft, there’s something for every style beer drinker. Plus, with bar games and an assortment of cigars and hookah flavors, Liquid Smoke promises a relaxing time for your favorite pops. For even more local beer finds, check out The Casual Pint of Smyrna where you can grab a pint, growler or a keg. Check out Mayday Brewery for live music and fresh local flavor on tap. And if Dad is into fine quality cigars, The Humidor has all the tobacco offerings he could be looking for.

Dads always dig a little low-key personal maintenance—whether they admit it or not. At Pastime Barbershop and Pool Hall, you can score your dad a haircut AND a free game of pool to go along with it. Pastime has been in business for 116 years, and you can trust they know what they’re doing when it comes to providing Dad with a fresh ‘do. And for your woodsman dad, the lost Viking son, the man, the myth, the absolute legend…you can find quality hair care at Woodsviking Barbershop. They know how to give a beard its best care with all-natural ingredients and oils that will make the man smell like a man and feel like a million bucks.

Another tried-and-true Father’s Day treat comes in the form of steak and boots. Go take Dad over to Steakhouse Five for the best beef he’s ever had. And then outfit him with the best boots he’ll ever own from French’s Shoes & Boots. A hard-working man needs good grip on his soles and protection for his toes. Nothing says, “You’re the best dad” like a new pair of kicks. Now, that’s the gift that REALLY keeps on giving.
