Father’s Day Events: Best Activities to do with your Dad

If you’re in City Limitless® this Father’s Day and are looking for some local ways to celebrate the special man in your life, you came to the right place.

Visit Mesa has the scoop on some of the best events and activities that we know your father will love!

Take a cruise with the Desert Belle to get to know the area! In addition to two daytime nature cruises, the Desert Belle is offering a more relaxing boat ride for Father’s Day featuring live music at night. A ride on the Desert Belle is sure to put dad in vacation mode! Bonus Tip: There’s a bar on the boat so dad can enjoy a cold brew while he cruises!

If your dad loves the outdoors we have just the thing: a full moon night hike! Experience the sights and sounds of the desert at Usery Mountain Regional Park, after hours. Resident Ranger B is hosting a two-mile hike under the glow of the “Strawberry Moon” on the eve of Father’s Day. All you need to bring is water, a flash light, closed-toe shoes and your sense of adventure. Insider tip: You can pack up all the fixings for a BBQ and head to Usery Park early to grill dad dinner before heading out on the hike.

Love museums? We do, and if dad does too, take him to the i.d.e.a. Museum. Here, imagine, design and experience art with your dad. Create life-long memories while learning and interacting with all of the fun exhibits in this hands-on children’s museum. The kiddos and dad are bound to have fun using their imaginations together. Plus, on Father’s Day, dads get in for free! Another must-do museum with dad is the Musical Instrument Museum. Come join Beat It! Family Drumming Workshop and learn the basics of African, Latin, and pop-music hand drumming with master instructor Frank Thompson which wraps up with a real jam session.

Another option: Celebrate a day with dad at the Superstition Mountain Museum. All fathers and their children get free admission on Sunday. Have fun spending time with your kids at this fun and exciting museum learning about the legendary Lost Dutchman – see the Peralta Stones on display, too! Extra: Be sure to check out some original artwork by Ted DeGrazia currently on display in the museum exhibit gallery.

Dads deserve a little rest and relaxation too! Give dad a luxurious spa day this Father’s Day at Fuchsia Spa! Spoil your dad with the pampering he deserves. The best part? Most of the dad specials come with an ice cold beer, putting dad into his element! From manicures to massages, your dad will remember this Father’s Day treat til’ next year!

From boat rides, to museum visits, and even a spa day, you’re bound to make your dad's Father’s Day the best one yet. Make sure you check out places to eat for Father’s Day, too. Wherever you head this Father’s Day, we’re sure the day will be special when you spend it in City Limitless®.
