Dear Reader,

Why should June 21st be marked on your calendar? Yes, it is the first day of summer, but it’s also Father’s Day. Why not surprise him with a present from our Father’s Day Gift Guide? You know he deserves a new Audi Q5 Prestige, our Car of the Month, but maybe that’s not in your budget. With the weather warming up, you can celebrate with Dear Old Dad by taking him to one of the Best Outdoor Dining Restaurants Near You, or even one of the Best Outdoor Dining Restaurants in the Country. If you’re trying to cut the costs of eating out, you can at least treat him to one of our Top Breakfast Restaurants Near You.  Don’t forget to take a look at the Gayot Economic Stimulus Plan to see how you can save money on restaurants, hotels, spas, cars, wines and more.

We’ve got you covered no matter what type of Dad you have. Is he rugged? Test his mettle at one of our Top 10 Extreme Hotels in the World, or do some male bonding at home with one of the Top 10 Action Movies. If he likes to pamper himself, take him to one of our Top 10 Spa Hotels, or The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa, or buy him some spa products(although Mom might like some Kerstin Florian Serum C+ Infusion). We feature a Weekend Getaway Guide to Providence and Newport for sailors, and a 72-hour Vacation Guide to London for Wimbledon-bound tennis fans. Duffers will enjoy our list of Top 10 Golf Resorts Around the World, even if they never visit them.

No matter what kind of Dad you have, you can toast to his good health with one of our Top 10 Father’s Day Wines. Which reminds us, with the Summer Solstice approaching, it’s time to stock up on our Top 10 Summer Wines.

There’s plenty more we have for you online, including June’s culinary events calendar, restaurant ratings, thousands of hotel reviews, and our blog, but we also want to hear from you. Post a comment on our forum, or review a restaurant or hotel on our site for our millions of visitors to read. And don’t forget to visit us on and Twitter.

Happy Father’s Day and Summer Solstice!
