How to Plan a Day with Dad in Alabama
There’s one thing that your dad wants more than anything this Father’s Day, and that’s to spend time with you. If you’re struggling to plan a perfect day with your dad, don’t panic. We’ve got some ideas — and we know that your father doesn’t care if the day is perfect. He just cares about spending the day with you.
Take a Hike
No, don’t tell dad to take a hike; instead, plan a hiking trip with dad. Pack a bag full of supplies and head out into mother nature for a day hike. Whether it’s Monte Sano State Park in Huntsville, AL or Red Mountain Park in Birmingham, AL, dad will enjoy a day full of memories with the family.
Explore the Caves of Alabama
Want to stay out of the sun this Father’s Day? Go beneath the surface and explore some of the Alabama’s caves. Lace up your shoes and prepare to take a journey into the earth. From Cathedral Caverns in North Alabama to DeSoto Caverns in Central Alabama, spelunking — or a guided tour — is a great way to stay cool and enjoy a day with dad.
Plan a Cookout
A cookout gives dad a chance to wear those new clothes you got him and for the family to enjoy a day in together. Throw some burgers on the grill and pull out the comfy chairs to enjoy a day full of memories at home.
Spend a Day at the Lake
Pack the cooler, give dad that new shirt to wear and head out for some lakeside fun this Father’s Day. Lake Guntersville or Lake Martin are great places to spend a day with the family, soaking up the sun and making memories that’ll last a lifetime.
Whether it’s a trip to TopGolf, mini-golfing local or an actual golf course, this gives dad a chance to try on that new polo. No matter how good (or bad) you are, dad will enjoy laughs with the family.
If you are planning a day in the outdoors for Father’s Day, we’re here for you. From hiking to paddling to just grilling some burgers in the backyard, we’ll be happy to help you get what you need. We want you and your dad to have the best day possible — and we know that, for your dad, that’s any day he gets to spend with you.
