What Dads Want
You’re hoping to show Dad how much he’s loved and appreciated. So, skip the necktie or BBQ utensil kit and give Dad what he really wants for Father’s Day – time spent with you! Since we live in pretty much the greatest city in the nation, there is no shortage of phenomenal experiences you can find to make your dad’s Father’s Day as special as he is.
FOR THE DAD WHO LIVES FOR GOLF – Dad loves to golf, and Dad loves you. Take the whole family on a golf outing and really make his day. If you can take the heat, golf courses around Scottsdale are running their super summer specials in June and you’re bound to find a deal too good to pass up. Then again, perhaps Dad would like a day trip to cooler climes. Both Continental Country Club in Flagstaff and Oakcreek Country Club in Sedona are public courses to try. If 18 holes don’t work for your crew, how about a less traditional golf outing at Top Golf instead? With your own hitting bay and numerous games to choose from, Top Golf is perfect for die-hards and golf novices alike.
FOR DADS THAT HIT THE TARGET – How about reserving some time at one of Scottsdale’s air-cooled indoor shooting ranges? Both Scottsdale Gun Club and C2 Tactical offer firearms training courses, rentals, shooting and simulator packages. Looking for a little less “fire” for your arm? Head over to Westworld Paintball’s outdoor Splatter Ranch, with over 20 acres of lush Sonoran Desert reserved for play.
FOR THE ADRENALINE-JUNKIE DAD – If your dad likes to get his blood pumping, head over to iFLY, the indoor skydiving center. Not only can he experience flying in the wind tunnel, he can perfect his skills for acrobatic maneuvers such as transitions, rolls and flips. Or, if Dad has a need for speed, take him to Octane Raceway for some exhilarating laps on their 1/3-mile, indoor/outdoor kart track.
FOR THE LIBATION-LOVING DAD – Does your dad like to chill out with a couple of cold ones? Or does he enjoy sipping and savoring the finest of pours? For a luxury neighborhood dive bar heavy on the man vibes, check out The Rooster Tavern. Or, if Dad appreciates a good Scotch, reserve a spot for yourselves at the Westin Kierland’s The Scotch Library. There you’ll find over 300 different bottles to sample, all in the company of Scotch Library Ambassadors who are at the ready to assist guests in their selections. Cheers!
