Are you looking for something fun to do this Father’s Day? Try these ideas.

Visit the local zoo: Going to the zoo can be a great family outing as both parents and children can enjoy the exhibits. Walking around the zoo also provides a little bit of exercise for the day.

Barbeque: Enjoy the June weather with a BBQ this Father’s Day. Gather the family’s favorite foods to toss on the grill and maybe even give dad a break and have someone else do the grilling.

Sporting event: Take dad to a game this Father’s Day, whether it’s watching the pros or even just the local Little Leaguers.  

Enjoy a round of golf: If your dad likes to golf consider joining him on the links for a round of golf. After your round you can come home and enjoy the final round of the U.S. Open.

Go to the movies: The summer blockbuster season at the movie theater is in full swing. Celebrate Father’s Day by seeing a movie the whole family can enjoy.

Do yard work: Does dad have some projects around the yard that need to get done? Give him a break and have the family pitch in and get the lawn work done for dad.

Go to the beach: Spending Father’s Day at the lake or the beach can make for a fun and relaxing holiday for the whole family.

Go to brunch: A popular Father’s Day outing is to go to brunch. Find out where your dad’s favorite brunch spot is and make reservations.

Let dad decide: Are you not sure how your dad wants to spend Father’s Day? Then let him decide. Let him make up an agenda for the entire day of everything he wants to do with the family.
