The Best Father’s Day Activity For Every Type Of Dad
We’ll admit, it’s hard to come up with the perfect Father’s Day gift. And if you ask, most Dads will say that they have everything they need. So this Father’s Day, we propose doing away with tangible gifts. Instead, find a fun experience that the Dad in your life can enjoy with his loved ones!
The Chef Dad
Does your Dad do most of the cooking? Does his kitchen look like the set of Chopped? Then you have a Chef Dad. You need to find a food-related activity, but you don’t want to make him cook on Father’s Day, so take him on a food tour! He’ll get to tickle his tastebuds at up to six different restaurants, cafes, and food purveyors in a single afternoon. It’s sure to leave him feeling happy and full. Plus, Discover Richmond Tours Tours offers gift certificates that never expire!
The Sports Enthusiast Dad
Does your Dad wear his team’s jersey with pride? Tell everyone that he bleeds the colors of his alma mater? Then you have a Sports Dad. Treat him to a round of golf at his favorite club around town. It won’t matter that you are terrible at golf – he’ll just be happy to share his interests with you. If you’re unsure about where to golf, try The Club at Viniterra in New Kent or Brickshire Golf Club in Providence Forge. And if things go sour on the course (think thrown clubs and ripped up scorecards), head over to The Diamond to see the Squirrels or City Stadium to watch the Richmond Kickers play instead.
The History Buff Dad
Does your Dad spend hours watching The History Channel and World War II films? Or maybe he just has a general dislike for anything “newfangled?” Then you have a History Dad! Hop in the car, and get the family to Tredegar and The American Civil War Museum. From there, you’ll have plenty of options – visit one of a handful of Civil War battlefields around Central Virginia, or check out The Valentine to learn all about Richmond’s 400-year history!
The Outdoorsy Dad
Does your Dad have a kayak permanently strapped to his car? How about a Camelback and a pair of hiking boots ready to go on a moment’s notice? Then you have a Nature Dad! Make him happy with a family outing to one of Richmond’s best parks – The James River Park System. There you’ll find miles of trails alongside lots of wildlife and swimming areas. Or go white water rafting with him through some urban rapids! Fancy getting outside the city? Pocahontas State Park is just 20 miles south of Richmond.
The Artist Dad
Does your Dad always wear paint-stained jeans? Is Picasso his childhood hero? Then yours is an Artist Dad! Lucky for you, one of the nation’s premiere art museums is right here in Richmond! Check out the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts for impressive collections of American, African, Ancient, 20th- & 21st-century art, and more! Cap off your cultural experience with a delicious cocktail at Amuse on the second floor!
