Flight of beers


Have you been searching for the perfect Father’s Day gift only to feel as if something is missing? Sure, your dad appreciates getting gifts from you. But sometimes giving him the gift of your time is what he prefers! Here are some ideas for things to do with Dad this year on Father’s Day.

  • Go Fishing
    Did you enjoy going fishing with your dad when you were a kid? If so, this is the perfect thing to do on Father’s Day! It gives you both a chance to relive the past while making new memories.
  • Try New Beers
    If your dad is a beer drinker, he’d probably love to join you for a beer tasting. This is a great opportunity to try a new brewery or to attend a beer event together. Follow that up by treating him at his favorite restaurant, and you’ll have the perfect day!
  • Go Camping
    Camping is a perfect Father’s Day activity for dads who really like the outdoors. The nice thing about camping is that it can be a great way to relax and unwind. You can spend the weekend hiking, fishing, and enjoying simple meals cooked over the campfire. If your dad likes the seacoast better than the forest, there are plenty of campgrounds in most coastal areas.
  • Enjoy a Day of Golfing
    Golfing is a great outing for Father’s Day, especially if he absolutely loves the sport! Instead of going to his regular golf club, take him somewhere special. Is there a course that he’s always wanted to try? If so, taking him there is the perfect activity.
  • Go to a Game
    Scoring your dad tickets to see his favorite team is a perfect gift if he’s a big sports fan. You can even try to find tickets for a game on Father’s Day! Although, if he loves a sport like football, you’ll need to wait for the season to begin before you can take him to a game. However, it’s possible to get the tickets well in advance.
  • Pamper Him
    Even though “spa days” have a reputation of being something women enjoy, dads love being pampered as well! If your dad could use a break, consider taking him to a spa for Father’s Day. Dad’s love things like massages, sitting in a sauna or steam room, and he’s even been known to enjoy a good pedicure.
  • Look at Cars
    Does your dad absolutely love cars? If so, taking him to a car show for Father’s Day will be a fun activity to do together! Sharing a favorite hobby with your dad will make the day feel extra special.
  • Treat Him to Dinner
    Treating your dad to dinner is also a wonderful thing to do with him on Father’s Day. If he has a favorite restaurant, it makes your job even easier! This can either be an outing by itself or as part of a day packed with activities. For example, you can take him out to dinner after bringing him to a local car show.

Participating in one (or more!) of these activities on Father’s Day will definitely make the day extra special for Dad!
