Wedged between Mother’s Day and the first day of summer, Father’s Day is a time to celebrate the men in our lives. Why not spoil dad with sports, spa treatments and amazing cuisine? It’s not too late to plan a special weekend with fun Father’s Day activities to show dad how much he’s loved and appreciated.
Some men like to stay at home and relax on Father’s Day. A BBQ, maybe a bike ride, and special Father’s Day gifts are all they need for their special day. But but for those who like to get away for a day or two, surprise dad with Father’s Day activities the whole family will enjoy.
Cater to dad’s interests with activities like boating, flying, skydiving, golfing, baseball and beer tasting for a special day. But bring the kids, too, for family fun activities at a resort or in the great outdoors. Planning in advance is best, but even last minute ideas can create a perfect Father’s Day.
