Miami is a great city to spend any holiday, and Father’s Day (which is coming up, by the way) is no exception. Instead of taking the father in your life to the fanciest restaurant you can afford, like you probably do on Mother’s Day, Father’s day requires some creative thinking. Fortunately, in Miami there is no shortage of places that dads of all kinds will enjoy. Here are just a few of the great places in Miami you can take your dad on Father’s Day.
If you know a father who loves art, or just one who likes doing new things and having unique experiences, Wynwood Walls is a great place to visit on Father’s Day. Wynwood Walls is one of the top places for art lovers in Miami and a great place to spend the day walking around. Some of the murals on the walls will have anyone in awe, regardless of whether they’re a fan of art or not. It’s also a great place for the entire family to spend a day and provides the perfect backdrop for family photos. There are also plenty of places to grab a bite to eat nearby, so it’s easy to make it a day of hanging out in Wynwood on Father’s Day.
Miami Marlins Game
Few activities in the world are geared more towards fathers and sons than attending a baseball. Fortunately, Miami’s major league team has a home game on Father’s Day, making tickets to the game the ideal Father’s Day present. You can go to a nice brunch in the morning and then head out to the game and spend all afternoon at the ballpark. If your dad’s a baseball fan, he’ll think it’s the perfect way to spend Father’s Day.
Of all the places in South Florida for animal lovers, Jungle Island may be the best option for Father’s Day. It’s affordable, conveniently located on Watson Island, and it has so many interactive exhibits and events that there’ll never be a dull moment. Since it’s a special occasion, it’s a great time to spring for one of their VIP Safari Tours, giving your dad up close and personal interactions with animals that he’ll never forget, ensuring that he has a memorable Father’s Day.
Edge Steak & Bar
If you’re not going to be creative on Father’s Day and just want to treat your dad to a nice lunch or dinner, the least you can do is go all-out and take him to the nicest spot you can find, which is the Edge Steak & Bar located in the Four Seasons Hotel. As you can guess from its name, steak is kind of their specialty, so there’s no doubt your dad will be able to get a delicious meal. The location is perfect too, right near the water on Brickell Avenue, so afterwards you can always wise up and finding something fun and creative nearby to do to treat your dad to the Father’s Day he deserves.
