There are so many amazing things to do in D.C. in the summer that we are so glad that Father’s Day is happening tomorrow. It gives us a reason to get outside and explore the city! Here are a few suggestions of fun activities to do with your Dad if you are planning on being with him in the D.C. area tomorrow. Enjoy!
The Athletic Dad: If you your Dad is on the athletic side and loves to be outside or get a good sweat going there are a lot of fun things to do on Sunday. We’d suggest going for a hike on the Billy Goat Trail, either on the Maryland or Virginia side. It’s a fun way to spend the day and you can end your hike over looking The Great Falls. If he’s not in the mood for that, you can always go on a regular walk around the city and go to see the monuments on the National Mall. Or head over to a fun SoulCycle class together or Flywheel.
The Intellectual Dad: This is the perfect city for your dad if he loves museums and history. There are so many amazing sights to see! Our favorite museums in the D.C. area are the Natural History Museum and the Newseum. There are also lots of great places to grab a bite near the museums so make a whole day of it.
The Foodie Dad: So many of our Dads out there love to eat! So let them do just that on Father’s Day this year. Pick one of the many hot new restaurants in D.C. and let him dine and wine all night.
The Wine-o Dad: Dads love wines and the great news is there are a lot of amazing vineyards you wouldn’t even know about in Virginia. Head over to Virginia early in the day and experience some of the best vineyards that the East Coast has to offer.
Now for all the kids out there that aren’t going to be with their Dads this year on Father’s Day, consider sending your Dad a D.C. gift basket. They’ve got so many fun treats inside of the gift baskets that your Dad will be beaming and forget all about not being with you on Father’s Day. Amazing chocolates, olive oils, fresh fruits and so much more can be included in the gift baskets. You can customize what you want to send! Another great thing to send to your Dad on Father’s Day? How about a plant. Local D.C. florists, like Nosegay, have amazing plants to order and send that can be delivered the same day your order them. It’s perfect for your Dad’s office. Check them out!
