Father’s Day is right around the corner and we know how challenging it can be to find a gift or activity for Dad that he will really enjoy. Dad’s can be picky. It’s even more difficult to find an activity Dad and the whole family will enjoy together.
He probably wants to sleep all day and the kids want to play. What can you do to bring the whole family together this Father’s Day? No worries, we are here to help!One of the best ways to show dad some love and appreciation is to take them out on the town. Here are some fun activities that the whole family can do together this Father’s Day weekend:
Share a day of art! On Sunday, June 17, fathers and grandfathers receive complimentary admission to all displays and exhibitions, including the two ticketed exhibitions: Peacock in the Desert: The Royal Arts of Jodhpur, India and Michelangelo and the Vatican: Masterworks from the Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte, Naples. No reservations necessary—simply drop in to take advantage of this special, on-site offer. All dad get in FREE!
What better way to celebrate Dad than running or walking in the annual Dad’s Day 5K, 3K and 1K Kids Walk benefiting Tex Us TOO! We call it saving the males!
