Dad, we see you. Lugging around all that beach gear. Patiently teaching them how to boogie board. Refereeing the inevitable squabbles. Fathers (and father figures) are the super champs of the summer vacation. Celebrate Dad this Father’s Day or any day, with one of these fun things to do in Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches.

Drop a Line on a Fishing Charter

Win big with Dad when you book him a day on the water with Grand Slam Fishing Charters. Join Captain Caleb Blackburn, a USCG certified captain, and fish for species like snook, black drum, and sea trout.  

Putter Around the Golf Course

Casual and kid-friendly, Cypress Knoll Golf and Country Club in Palm Coast features a “Pitch & Putt” style Par 3 course that’s open for play on all 18 holes. A great way to improve Dad’s short game while also allowing younger kiddos to participate in the sport.


Rent Surfboards and Hang Ten Together

If Dad can hang, then shredding waves is a cool way to spend Father’s Day. Find everything you need, from board rentals to swimwear, at Z Wave Surf Shop in Flagler Beach. Check out the Flagler Beach surf cam for that day’s waves.

Hit the Family-Friendly Trails

Game for some Gamble? Spend an afternoon with Dad at Gamble Rogers Memorial State Park, where you can explore all the park has to offer. At just three-quarters of a mile, the Joe Kenner Nature Trail is an easy walk for the whole family. Keep an eye out for birds and other wildlife along the way.


Get in on the Axe-tion

Let Dad channel his inner lumberjack with an afternoon at Tomahawk Tavern in Bunnell. Start with a hearty steak or juicy burger, then move on to the main event. Choose from 15-, 30-, or 60-minute increments of axe-chucking fun. The minimum age is 14, so this is a good activity for dads with older kids.
