Five Fun Places to Celebrate Father’s Day Heather Hopson June 10, 2013 Baby, Dear Diary, Toddler 2 Comments (Photo Courtesy: The Crafty Clip) Dear Diary, In our family, we have a tradition of celebrating fathers at a Father’s Day brunch. My sister hosts the event at her house and does most of the cooking as I am the takeout queen in our family. This year, I am required to bring a covered dish–not drinks, desserts or paper products as I have done in the past. Not sure what I will whip up, but I do know after the kitchen is cleaned and the food is packed up, we’ll probably take the kids out and about. Here are five fun places to make Father’s Day the most memorable yet. Plus, some of the ideas are great suggestions to burn the calories from waffles, shrimp and grits and bacon!

At Art of Shaving, fathers can get the ultimate indulgence and receive a royal shave by an expertly trained barber. If the $65 fee isn’t in the budget, you can create a spa in your home with a hot towel, razor, shaving cream and face balm. (Photo Courtesy: The Pittsburgh Zoo) 2. Go Wild Zoos across the country, including here in Pittsburgh, are offering free admission to fathers this Sunday. Gather the whole herd and enjoy a safari celebration. You can make it an educational activity by teaching your little ones about all the furry fathers you see. (Photo Courtesy: New Jersey Playground) 3. Take a Ride Zoos aren’t the only attractions offering freebies for father’s. Many amusement parks, like the Land of Make Believe in New Jersey, are waiving admissions as well. You can take dad on the ride of the summer, scream at the top of your lungs while on a roller coaster and eat cotton candy until your stomach aches. (Photo Courtesy: Top Golf) 4. Go Golfing Grab the golf clubs and head out onto the greens, especially if the father in your life plays putt-putt in his backyard. Expand his horizons to play with the pros. If the children are too small to swing, check out a miniature golf course or check out Top Golf locations in Chicago, Dallas, Houston and Washington, D.C.. FOX will offer the first 150 Dads and their families one hour of free peak-time play. Click here for more details. (Photo Courtesy: Color Me Mine) 5. Get Fired up Take dad and his artistic offspring to a ceramic studio to celebrate the day. The kids can make a big impression by making gifts using their hand and footprints. Don’t forget to snap a shot, print the picture and put in the frame your little ones paint. Hey DFTM Fam–Where are you celebrating Father’s Day this year? http://sayitrahshay.com Rachée Great ideas! And they won’t break the bank http://MommyTalkShow.com Joyce@MommyTalkShow Great list. My favorite is the Art of Shaving since I regularly tell my husband I like “smooth face” not the rough stuff.
