With Father’s Day coming up this Sunday, you may be stumped on figuring out the best way to celebrate dad on his big day. Sure, we often opt for the usual activities like taking him to his favorite restaurant and showering him with sentimental Father’s Day cards and gifts, but really, all dad really wants is quality time with the people he loves the most.
Luckily for us, Tallahassee has a lot of great local spots to show our dads how much we love and appreciate them. So whether your dad is more of a man of the great outdoors or one who likes to sit back and relax with a good movie, we have some great suggestions to celebrate dad this Father’s Day.
Treat Him to Brunch
We all know food is the best way to anyone’s heart, and dads are no exception. This Father’s Day, treat your dad to some of Tallahassee’s tasty options like a Father’s Day Brunch at The Blu Halo or a fun night filled with great food, good times and arcade games at Hangar 38. End the weekend with treating dad to a Father’s Day BBQ at Mission San Luis where you can expect a day filled with courtyard games, a BBQ buffet and more! If you’re feeling a little on the creative side, treat your dad to the Father’s Day Paint and Sip Paint Party at Nefetari’s Fine Cuisine. Here, guests will enjoy a night filled with assorted beverages and desserts while painting along with step-by-step instructions from local artists.
Go On an Outdoor Adventure
Kick off Father’s Day by exploring some of Tallahassee’s local trails and parks. Make an adventure out the day by taking dad to a nice beach spot such as Shell Point Beach, Alligator Point or St. George Island. Explore some of Tallahassee’s great nature trails such as St. Marks or Lafayette Heritage Trail. You could even enjoy a day at Wakulla Springs, where activities range anywhere from swimming in some of the world’s largest and deepest freshwater springs to taking guided boat tours and more. The outdoor possibilities are limitless!
Rainy Day Bonding Activities
Although spending the day with dad outdoors sounds like a great idea, Tallahassee’s weather has been a little unpredictable lately with its heavy showers and thunderstorms. Don’t let the rain dampen your day with dad! There are plenty of indoor activities that are just as fun such as going out to your local theater for a fun movie night (or staying in and watch one of his all-time favorites), making some memorable Father’s Day crafts, visiting a museum or even treating him to a yummy breakfast in bed. Whatever you choose to do, as long as you’re spending it with him, he’ll love every minute of it.
