There’s no better time than Father’s Day to enjoy a little male bonding. So invite dear ol’ dad to join you on a much-deserved “mancation.” Whether he likes to live in the fast lane, shoot birdies, laugh until he drops, reel in the prize catch, yell “hey batter, batter” or dance with Lady Luck, you—his adult son—can treat him to a special experience on his special day.
Here are 6 great things to do with dad:
- Branson Guided Fishing Trips
- Richard Petty Driving Experience
- Great Golf Fore! Sure
- SAK Comedy Lab
- Gaming Vacations
- Baseball Games
Looking for things to do with dad? Grab your fishing pole and get ready for an exciting guided fishing expedition on spectacular Lake Taneycomo. If you, dad or even grandpa, fancy the fisherman lifestyle, this is an angler’s dream. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to reel in the prize catch as you learn and master the techniques for hooking Rainbow and Brown trout during your “Mancation” getaway in Branson, Missouri. Branson guided fishing trips guarantees you’ll catch fish and specializes in trophy trout. You’ll need a fishing license, so don’t get caught without one.
If your trip with dad calls for exhilarating thrills, buckle up for the ride of your life at the Richard Petty Driving Experience in Daytona, Florida. You can either ride shotgun with a pro driver or opt for the experience of actually driving this massive muscle car. Either way, you’ll shift into high gear and burn rubber in a 300-horsepower NASCAR style stock car during this fast-paced adventure. Keep your engine running for a qualifying lap around the 31-degree banked turn at Daytona International Speedway.
Hitting the links never grows old, and it’s always one of the most popular things to do with dad. Especially when you have the opportunity to play rounds of championship golf on world-renowned public courses like the Caledonia Golf and Fish Club in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina—or the Slammer & Squire in St. Augustine, Florida. Tee it up and swing for the flags unfurling in the distance. The greens will be waiting for him to try that new putter he no doubt received as a Father’s Day gift.
This Father’s Day dads laugh free, no joke! SAK Comedy Lab in Orlando is an intimate, 250-seat live improv comedy venue that is widely known as a starting place for comedic writers, actors and producers. Sak Comedy takes requests, so bring your suggestions. Based on the topic presented, the comedy team will act out scenes, make up characters and sing songs off the cuff—without any rehearsal. Beer and wine are available at the concession stand, but you won’t need any “help” to enjoy a hearty laugh. LOL!
Whether your dad is a high roller or antes up one penny at a time, the two of you can go all in—in casinos located other places than Las Vegas. If you’re looking for a little high-stakes action in the Wisconsin Dells, the Ho-Chunk Casino definitely has game—so place your bets. There’s a sweet chance you’ll score a winning hand if you play your cards right at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course near Hershey, Pennsylvania. Just north of Miami in Hollywood, Florida you’ll find the best table games and more than 2,500 slots waiting for you at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. This is an epic place with plenty of things to do with dad.
Looking for a home run experience to enjoy with dad? Take him out to the ballgame for peanuts, Cracker Jack, fastballs and major league good times. The Boys of Summer are in full swing and chances are you can catch your favorite team in action at stadiums across the land. The Arizona Diamondbacks are at home on Father’s Day and they square off against the San Diego Padres. It’s free Father’s Day shirt day so arrive early and wear it well. The New York Yankees host the Detroit Tigers on Father’s Day. If you’re in the city the day before, make Saturday plans to attend the 69th Old Timer’s Day and Willie Randolph Monument Park Plaque Dedication Ceremony.
