He encourages you, challenges you, and claims that any old car can be fixed with just the right amount of duct tape. He’s been there for you since the day you were born, driven you to school, and listened to your dreams. On June 17th, show dad the best that South Florida has to offer. Who’s your daddy? Is he a closet science nerd who loves watching The Discovery Channel? Or is dad a secret superhero, with his comics and trading cards? Or is dad a beach bum? A chilled out papa? Find where dad fits among our Dad Categories and select a very special gift for your unique padre.
My dad had a weird fondness for science. For those with science loving dads like mine, check out South Florida’s best science museums. From the Miami Science Museum to Fort Lauderdale’s Museum of Discovery and Science, SoFl has plenty of fun and interesting options for the ever-curious dad.
My brother – now a dad of two – went through a huge, late-in-life comic book stage. I’m sure he’d get a kick out of this offer from The Comics Factory in Hollywood. The Comics Factory will custom draw dad’s face onto the superhero of his choice. Dad can become Spider Man, The Hulk, Captain America, Wolverine, The Punisher and many others. Whole families can also let loose their superhero alter egos. (Mom can even become Spider Girl or Wonder Woman. Now that’s awesome.)
Jet skis and beachside bikes are available for rent at Hollywood Beach or Fort Lauderdale Beach, in case dad wants to spend his special day chilling out by the water.
Many men enjoy the relaxation of a pedicure or massage, so why not book dad at an eco-friendly South Florida spa? Studies have shown that massages can reduce stress and even lower blood pressure, so give dad’s health a boost and book him a soothing rub down. Check out this network of green spas and choose from hundreds of national green spas. Not sure if a green pedicure is for dad? Think again. Many men don’t take care of their feet, which can result in calluses and other foot issues. Plus, all he’ll have to do is sit there and get pampered for Father’s Day. Is that so hard, dad?
