Summer Road Trip
Why not hit the gorgeous Maine coast this summer and take dad on a dream spa and golf vacation? The Spa & Golf Combo Package at the Cliff House Resort and Spa is ideal for families. And it’s just 75 miles north of Boston along scenic highways.
This 3-night, 4-day getaway includes ocean-view lodging; full breakfast each morning; lobster dinner or choice of entrée one night; and a round of 18-hole championship golf. The package also includes a $100 spa credit per person.
Dad can use his spa credit toward the exclusive Gentleman’s Day Away package or any of the Condé Nast-rated spa’s treatments. Or, he might prefer a Cliff House gift certificate for the Resort’s popular Microbrew Tasting Weekend in November.
The Autogeek Clean And Clear car wash kit includes the Pinnacle Bodywork Shampoo, XMT 360 Spray Wax, three micro-fiber towels, and Diamondite Perfect Vision Glass Cleaner, all in an easy-to-carry storage bag. Dad can wash his car, finish it with a shine, and sparkle his windows all with this bundle. Better yet, since it’s Father’s Day, you do it for him! $60

Can You See Me Now?

Ready for his close up
