Dads don’t typically ask for much. Chances are that if you ask your dad what he wants for Father’s Day, he will tell you ‘nothing.’ You know that your dad deserves much more than nothing for all that he has done for you. If your dad has a cupboard full of mugs and a closet full of ties, it’s time to get a bit more creative. Here are five amazing things to do with your dad in North Carolina this weekend.
1. NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher
Imaging gazing at lazily swimming sea creatures with your dear old dad. Stay behind the safety of glass as you gaze upon the fiercest of ocean creatures housed at the NC Aquarium! Admission is free for dads on Father’s Day, and the aquarium is holding a special BBQ.
2. Zip Lining
Head over to The Whitewater Center and take dad zipping through the sky. It’s a perfect day for the adventurous father and a great bonding activity for the two of you. Plan on spending an entire day at the center and taking part in all of the activities they offer.
3. Brew Tour
Older children, or those over 21, will enjoy taking dad on an amazing brew tour. You can find some great tours throughout the state, like NoDa, Foothills, Birdsong and Wicked Weed. Forget dad’s old standby Bud Light; these breweries serve delicious craft IPAs and stouts.
If you and your dad enjoy spending time together outdoors, why not take him camping for the weekend? Find the perfect place by visiting Only In Your State and make it a weekend for two.
5. The Perfect Meal
You don’t have to take dad out for an adrenaline rush. Why not just take dad for a great meal? One of the best Father’s Day brunches is held a Raffaldini Vineyards. It’s already sold out this year, as a matter of fact, but you can always call and ask if there have been any cancellations. Of course, there are many other great restaurants around Charlotte that are perfect choices for Father’s Day; just be sure they serve food he likes!
You don’t have to buy another cheesy gift and wrap it for dad. Spending the day doing something he enjoys is often the best gift of all. Use one of these ideas or simply use them for inspiration.
