Father-daughter day

Too old for a daddy-daughter day? No way! Make your dear old dad feel extra special this Father’s Day by gifting him with some solo time with his favorite child – you, natch!

Check out these fun ways to spend Father’s Day with Dad.

Forgo brunch

Sure, you and your mom could linger over brunch for hours, but that’s not Dad’s forte. Do some research to find a cool, retro mom and pop joint that serves up frosty beers and juicy burgers instead. You could order a salad, but it’ll be much more fun if you indulge in a man-wich with Dad.

If your pop prefers to lunch at home, fire up the grill and show off your impressive burger-making skills. Don’t forget to serve him a cold one and invite him to kick up his feet and relax… after all, it’s his day.

Toss in a line

Remember when you were growing up and Dad would take you down to the creek to fish? Why not relive that childhood memory by planning a fishing day-trip-a-deux for you and your dad? If you live near a big river, lake or ocean, charter a fishing boat for a few hours and toss in a line.

Take in a game

What Dad doesn’t love baseball? It’s no accident that Father’s Day falls during the season of the boys of summer. Get your hands on some tickets to a local ballgame. If your town doesn’t have a major league team, consider planning a day or weekend trip to treat Dad to a big league game. If Dad likes to play baseball more than he likes to watch, head on over to the batting cages and swing for the fences

Hit the links

Team up with Dad for a day of golfing. Even if you have more fun riding around in the golf cart trying to keep up with the beer cart, you’re sure to have a great time on the greens with Dad.

Get sentimental

After spending the day sporting around with Dad, don’t be shy about spending a few moments waxing sentimental. Even though you’re all grown up, you’ll always be your Daddy’s little girl. Make sure you tell Dad what an important part of your life he was while you were growing up — and what an important role he plays in your life as an adult. Awwwww. Now give Dad a big ol’ hug!
