Dads are always there to pick us up when we fall, be that shoulder to lean on when we need it and have the perfect dad joke lined up to make us laugh or hide our heads in shame. So here in Jax, we want to celebrate dads on their big day (and every day) by giving back to them with some 20+ miles of beaches for them to relax and fish on, 20 different courses to play a round of golf, countless parks to go hiking, camping or cycling, and even spas for a day of relaxation. Pampering Dads is way easier in Jax!
Pick one of 25 restaurants in Jax that offer stellar brunch options (Dads like brunch too!) or really treat your father to a special meal at Cowford Chophouse, Jacksonville’s locally owned steak house, and sit at the rooftop with one of their signature cocktails and spectacular views of our riverfront Downtown.
Dads love good beers! Take him to some of the craft breweries on the Jax Ale Trail.
Spend the day at the Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens.
Buy him a round of golf at Hidden Hills golf course or Queens Harbor or dine while you play and challenge him to some competition at TopGolf.
Spend the day at Congaree and Penn exploring the property on the farm tour.
If you are looking for the perfect Father’s Day gift visit the local shops of San Marco, Avondale, or the Beaches Town Center. Beau Outfitters in San Marco offers hip clothing and accessories or check out the Bookmark at the Beaches Town Center to pick up a book about one of his hobbies or something written by his favorite author.
Celebrate dad in Jax this year and show him how unique and special as he is!
