June usually sees a spike in both temperatures and humidity in Savannah — which means staying cool is of the utmost importance. One of the best ways to keep the whole family cool and satisfy your sweet tooth on Father’s Day is to stop for an ice cream cone at Leopold’s Ice Cream.

Leopold’s Ice Cream is an iconic ice cream parlor in Savannah that has been serving homemade ice cream since 1919. Some of the most popular flavors include Butter Pecan, Rum Raisin, and Tutti Fruitti. One thing is for sure — your dad will be sure to find a new flavor he loves on Father’s Day at this popular dessert spot in Savannah.

3. Throw back a cold one at a local brewery

If your dad is a self-proclaimed craft beer enthusiast, planning a brewery-hopping tour to some of Savannah’s best breweries for Father’s Day may be a fun way to spend the day.

Southbound Brewing Company is one of the most popular breweries in Savannah, GA, with a taproom that serves pints and flights — and it is dog and kid-friendly, so the entire family can tag along! The brewery’s two award-winning beers are the Hop’lin IPA and Mountain Jam Southern Lager, so be sure Dad gives these a try before trying some of the limited-release and pilot batch beers.
