4 Fun Ways to Celebrate Father’s Day Outdoors
Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there! Being a dad is one of the most rewarding jobs there is. You have the responsibility of raising your kids right, teaching them how to fish, and how to shoot a gun. You know… the important things in life. But in all seriousness, there is nothing better than the relationship between a dad and his kids. Father’s Day is a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your family. What better place to do it than the outdoors? So here are some simple, affordable ideas to celebrate Father’s Day in the great outdoors.
1. Camping Trip
It’s like Boy Scouts all over again, but new and improved with a cold beer in your hand. What better way to spend time with your family than a weekend get-away? Take the RV to another city or pitch a tent at a local campsite. With camping comes all of the fun outdoor activities, like fishing, kayaking, riding bikes, or driving the golf cart around. The older we get, the more we hold onto memories instead of material possessions. Camping creates the kinds of memories both you and your kids won’t easily forget. If you live in or near Fort Myers, here’s a list of the best rated campsites in the area.
2. Boat Day
When you live in sunny Southwest Florida, there’s really no better way to celebrate Father’s Day than taking the boat out. There’s nothing like listening to your favorite music, sipping on your favorite drink, and watching your kids play in the water for hours on end. Not to mention, there’s a good chance you’ll spot some dolphins or manatees hanging out around your boat. It’s easy to forget that we live where other people vacation. Father’s Day is the perfect excuse to get out and enjoy the water.
There is no better way to “par-tee” with your family than to take them golfing. Not to mention, if your dad lives in the area, it’s a great way to celebrate with him too. Golfing is always better when there is someone to play with. Have a relaxing game or keep score for a fun competition. Or, if your dad is more of a solo golfer, offer to drive the golf cart around and hold his clubs. End the day with a nice lunch or his favorite beverage. Taking the time to be with him will be a great gift in and of itself.
4. Shooting Range
If your kids are old enough, going to the gun range can be a really fun way to celebrate Father’s Day. It’s a great opportunity to teach them about gun safety as well. There are some good outdoor shooting range options in Lee County. There are also some indoor options if the weather doesn’t cooperate. If your kids aren’t old enough to go to the shooting range, Father’s Day is at least one day out of the year you can get out of the house to have some fun by yourself without feeling guilty.
There are many different ways to celebrate Father’s Day, especially when you live somewhere as beautiful as we do. How you celebrate isn’t as important as that you celebrate. Life can easily distract us from what’s most important – family. So, whatever you do, focus on your family and making some awesome memories with them.
