Father’s Day is such a great opportunity to show Dad he’s loved. However, it is not always easy coming up with a fun activity or gift to make the day really special! Sure, taking him out to lunch or dinner are both good ideas. But here are some truly unique Father’s Day activity and gift ideas that we think Dad (or grandpa, or husband, or uncle…) might really enjoy. Onward!
Ten Father’s Day Activity Ideas
🎨 Is there a museum in your city or town that he’s never visited? Explore your local historical, art, science or natural history museum!
⛳ If Dad is more of a get-up-and-go type, how about a hike or a round of golf? A sunny afternoon outdoors is always good for the soul.
🏙 Spend a day with Dad sightseeing in your own city and discover it in a new light. A bicycle tour might be perfect!
🍻 Does he enjoy spirits? If so, take a tour and enjoy a tasting at a local winery, distillery or brewery!
🛶 Does a local body of water offer any boat rentals? Taking a few kayaks, a canoe or stand-up paddle boards out on the water is a great idea. Wear your life jackets!
🌱 Head over to Dad’s house with the kids and clean up his lawn or garden. It’s hard work to keep up with yard work, and Dad will appreciate your help!
✔ Is there a chore he’s been putting off, such as cleaning out gutters, washing the car, staining the deck or chopping wood? Imagine Dad waking up on Father’s Day to find that chore already completed!
⚾ It’s affordable, it’s exciting, and it’s relaxing all at the same time! Of course we’re talking about Minor League Baseball! Is there a Class A, Double or Triple A team in your area? Find out at MiLB.com and take him to a day at the diamond!
🎷 Jazz and blues clubs often host brunch with live music on Sundays, and Father’s Day is the perfect day for it. Pick up Dad, grab a table, eat a delicious brunch, enjoy some smooth tunes and support local music!
🎬 A great movie is hard to pass up. Check your listings for more than just the usual summer blockbusters. Chances are, your city has a few independent movie theaters that are showing some really unique films!
