(5) Free tours for dads — Sunday is Father's Day, and one way you can celebrate with your dad is take him to the Hackley & Hume Historic Site in downtown Muskegon. He gets in free to see these lavish Victorian homes. For the rest of you, ages 13 and older, admission is $5. The site is open from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. For directions, visit lakeshoremuseum.org.
