If you’re like me, you’re always looking for Father’s Day ideas for the special man in your life, whether it be your dad, your husband, son, or even a special father figure. Instead of spending money on store bought gifts, what better way to honor Dad than by spending solid quality time together. Try one of these ideas to celebrate the man in your life!
Bring Dad to AVAC®
He can take advantage of our resort-style swimming pool and Poolside Cafe’. With fresh and healthy choices, and even frosty beers on draft. Dad can kick back and relax by the pool and be pampered with our resort-style amenities! If you’ve got a man looking to Get ACTIVE, bring Dad to our Sunday 9 am Ultimate Athletic Conditioning Group Fitness class. Here, he can boost his metabolism, burn calories, increase strength, proprioception, and endurance with this overall strength and sports conditioning class. Or, if he’s a fan of the outdoors, try out our tennis drop-in clinic at 10 am with Brett. Last but not least, why not surprise him with a post-workout Massage? Jessica is currently offering 20% off by appointment on Sunday massages for new clients at AVAC®. Contact Jessica at 408.802.1206 via email.
Fire Up the Grill (or Smoker, Oven, etc…!)
What is Dad’s favorite food? Whether it’s steak, chicken, fish, ribs or even tofu, there’s surely a way to make it better on the grill, Don’t forget the sides, and of course the desserts! Prep these goodies ahead of time and you’ll have Sunday free to spend with Dad. And don’t forget to let him put up his feet while you pamper him with the clean up.
Hit the Trails
As residents of the California Bay Area, we are lucky to have access to some of the most beautiful recreational areas on the planet. Sharing a hike can do wonders in bringing families closer, as well as fostering a lifelong love of the outdoors. As Chris S. of the American Hiking Society states, “Dad was the one that got me into the outdoors at a very young age. And that was one of the reasons I was so excited to join scouts. Throughout the years in scouts he helped with leading our pack, being a scout leader, was on most of the trips with me and I will never forget our experiences together out hiking in the woods.”
Here’s a list of local San Jose/Bay Area trails worth checking out:
Quicksilver Mines Park
Los Gatos Creek Trail (Lexington Res. to Campbell)
Los Alamitos Creek Trail
Guadalupe River Trail
Villa Montalvo, Saratoga
Stevens Creek to Bay Trail
Santa Teresa Park
Rancho San Antonio
So what are you waiting for? Grab the DAD in your life this Sunday and have FUN together!
