The best fathers are superheroes. They are parents, teachers, providers, and they are role models. Father’s Day is about recognizing the many gifts that a father bestows upon his children. His love, commitment, protection, time, concern. Faith, moral code, work ethic, family values. His understanding of the world and encouragement to live your best life.
These blessings are observed year-round and celebrated in small moments, often quite randomly. But on Father’s Day, we honor our dads with our deepest displays of affection. Here are some family friendly ways that you can show your dad a great time on this special day.
Father’s Day Transportation
For starters, consider treating the man of the house (or man of the household you grew up in) with a limousine ride from Broward Transportation. He may want to look his best for his special day, so take him to be groomed at his favorite barber shop where a haircut, beard trim, or shave will make him look and feel like the celebrity he is. From there, why not get a little playful? Take him to The Sock Drawer in Massapequa to pick out a novelty pair of foot-warmers. Bigfoot, Tacosaurus, Craft Beer Socks…come on, isn’t this Dad’s kind of silly humor?
Next, try out an adventure from the following:
Father’s Day Adventure
Many dads love a good adventure. Why not treat yours to an hour of archery at Suffolk Archers, or an afternoon of rock climbing at Island Rock? Each place offers an atmosphere for amateurs and elites alike. Whether you’re new to the activity or experienced, you’ll find a family friendly environment for everyone to have fun.
For even more thrills, consider one of the most recent trends in recreational entertainment: zip-lining! Long Island Adventure Park offer great rates, but there are other places, too. Keep in mind Broward Transportation has an entire fleet of limousines and luxury vehicles if you decide you want to invite aunts, uncles, cousins or grandparents on this adventure.
For something to do that’s a little out of the ordinary, bring your family to an obstacle course. There’s great reward in team-building through a series of physical challenges. NYC Parks and Obstacle Athletics are for two excellent exercising options.
Another fun way to accidentally exercise is a trampoline. At Bounce! in Syosset, you’ll be amazed at all the jumping possibilities. They have a ninja course, foam pits, dodgeball courts, and much more – all for your bouncing pleasure.
Sports & Games
Some dads prefer more traditional outings. Maybe yours would love the opportunity to show off his golf stroke. Maybe he’ll even want to teach you. At Harbor Links in Port Washington, they have practice facilities for just that reason. They also offer mini golf, as does the Heartland Golf Park in Brentwood.
Take your dad bowling! Maybe you already have a favorite bowling alley. And when he’s finished demonstrating his fancy footwork, bring him to an arcade so you can battle him on your own terms. Q-Zar is one place where you’ll find an eclectic mix of prize games, shooting games, racing games, and classics.
Father’s Day Treats
No day of family fun is complete without a treat. If you skipped lunch but want a simple dinner, check out Liberty Links in Freeport, a gourmet sausage sandwich shop (fancy hot dogs!). You’ll find all sorts of simple pleasures and guilty goodies here.
If something sweet is what you’re after, look no further than the old fashion setting of an ice cream parlor. Send your sweet tooth to Hilderbrandts in Williston Park for some of the creamiest desserts you’ve ever imagined. You’ll also find a huge selection of candy and chocolates.
Continuing down nostalgia lane, the Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain on Henry St. in Brooklyn is a delightful callback to the diners and soda shops of the 50’s, perhaps the perfect place for your father to reflect on memories of his father or grandfather.
At the end of the day, you should remember that the most important thing your father wants to do on Father’s Day is spend time with you. This is why a luxurious limousine ride is the perfect gift. Whatever destination you have in mind, realize the true value will be in the journey.
Happy Father’s Day to all the honorable men who put their families before themselves.
