Warm weather, late sunsets, and the sound of the ice cream truck circling around the neighborhood; summer is definitely here and Father’s day isn’t too far behind! Father’s day is June 17, and now is the time to start planning your perfect day of celebration that will let him know just how much you love him. Whether it’s his first or his fifth, what can you do to make this Father’s Day special? We have three celebration ideas for every type of dad: the wine dad, the nautical dad, and the ESPN dad. Whichever one you choose, he’s sure to be one proud papa.
The Wine Dad: He thinks he’s a sommelier every time he picks up a bottle or orders a glass.
Trust us, Dad just wants a day free from any pressure and what better way to relax and unwind than a day that begins and ends with wine. Head to a local vineyard for a wine tasting that’s guaranteed to make him feel extra special. Get a taste of Malibu’s finest wines, and meet the exotic animals who live at Saddlerock Ranch, as you explore the Malibu Wine Safari. Tickets are limited, so reserve your wine-filled day of fun and food in advance here.
The Nautical Dad: Never takes his Sperry’s off and includes the word “boat” in his retirement plan.
Enjoying each other’s company as a family seems simple, but it’s so easy to get sidetracked from your time together. Get away from the house, set your sights on the sea and rent a Duffy boat for the day! Located in Newport Beach (Newport Harbor), Duffy Electric Boat Rentals are always a fun way to celebrate with family and friends. Pack a picnic and you’re ready to go! Last minute walk-in customers are welcome, but we recommend that you book your boat in advance. Explore everything Duffy has to offer here.
The ESPN Dad: He probably coached your childhood soccer team, and loves to call you “sport”.
If dad taught you how to throw a baseball and the best way to break in your new glove, then why not return the favor and treat dad to an unforgettable afternoon at the ballpark on his big day! For fathers who like to spend their free time following sports, an afternoon in the sun, soaking in America’s Pastime, is the way to go. Nothing says “DAD” more than cracker jacks, ice cold beer, and foam fingers. Take dad to the ballpark and watch the Los Angeles Dodgers play against the San Francisco Giants this Father’s Day. Buy your tickets here.
Father’s Day is traditionally a day of breakfast in bed and carefully selected (but hardly ever worn) ties. For every kind of dad, there’s a perfect Father’s Day activity to enjoy and remember forever. From wine tasting and boating to a ball game, make it a day dad will never forget with a celebration that perfectly fits his personality.
