Local activities to spend one-on-one time with Dad.
Father’s Day is June 15, and it’s the perfect time to get outside and enjoy some summer sunshine. Sometimes the kids need a little assistance when it comes to planning a day with Dad. Following are just a few suggestions.
Stand-Up Paddle Boarding
If being outdoors is Dad’s thing, take in some summer sun in the Newport Beach, Dana Point or Huntington Beach harbors for some paddle boarding. Not only is this a fun way to be outside, catch some rays and spend quality time with Dad, but it also offers a full body workout as paddle boarders utilize their core and legs for balance, and arms for paddling. Rental rates range from $25 for one hour and up to $65 for four-plus hours.

BBQ at the Pool
Make a day out of a dip in the pool and add some BBQ to the equation! Dad and his family can work up an appetite by playing some Marco-Polo or competing in swimming races. When your toes and fingertips have turned to raisins, have Dad show off his grill-skills by cooking up some hot dogs, cheeseburgers, chicken and steak! It’s a stress-free (and easy on the finances) way to spend some quality time with Dad.
