Boats on the harbor in Gothenburg, Sweden

"I would take my dad to Gothenburg, Sweden, where his grandmother immigrated from almost a century ago.

Myrtle Beach golf

"My Dad loves golf, so I'd take him to Scotland to play the course at St. Andrew's. Either that or a golf weekend in Myrtle Beach. Pebble Beach is a bit out of our price range..." —Kaeli Conforti, Digital Editorial Assistant.
