BRING DAD CLOSER TO NATURE

It's likely that you and your dad work a 9-5 (or longer) job in the city, so get away from all that urban sprawl and spend a day in the great outdoors. Tis the season to be sucking up the fresh air and sunshine, so if your dad enjoys fishing, then head out to the lake or hit the pier. And if the idea of scaling a fishes gives you the willies, take a more leisurely approach with a nature hike or a picnic under the trees.

1. COOK DAD A MEAL

Even though your dad may seem like a superhero, he still needs to eat. So skip the drugstore socks and visit your local farmers’ market where you can stock up on exactly what you need to whip up his favorite meal. It’s a great way to show him how much you love him, this idea also helps support local farms and business.

2. TAKE DAD TO A SUMMER CONCERT OR TO A BALL GAME

Summer is a great time to rock out at a concert or grab veggie dogs at a ball game, so bring dad to one of the many events that are happening around town. Although you may be just a tad too late to catch Pink Floyd in concert, there are dozens of incredible musicians and ensembles getting ready to tour as the months warm up. Do a bit of research (read: iTunes stalk), and find an artist your dad would truly love to see — or if you’re not such a sleuth, just get pumped up for some brewskis and burgers at the field!
