Lucky Strike Bowling
In the excitement and entertainment center that is LA Live, Lucky Strike is a bowling experience fit for an LA Father’s Day. From 11 am to 8 pm, Lucky Strike is a family friendly venue that includes plasma TV screens where dad can watch some good ol’ sports, bowl on 18 lanes with deluxe lighting, get his pool on at the billiards tables, and order from a menu featuring the tastiest versions of your favorite appetizers plus an upscale twist on some pub classics.
More than your average park, this outdoor venue has enough activities to appeal to at least a few of your dad’s fancies for your LA Father’s Day. Take him for a picnic, practice on the driving range, hit the tennis courts, enjoy some cycling on the bike paths, and if you’re feeling rather adventurous saunter on down to the LA Zoo and let your favorite dad explore his wild side!
In supplement to the glorious beach view of the coast, the Malibu Pier also offers the ideal fishing experience. If your pop isn’t baited by the idea of reeling in his own catch of the day, he’s guaranteed to be enticed by the various aquatic activities you can rent gear for, or just enjoy the opportunity to indulge in some delectable cuisine to celebrate while taking in the superior SoCal view of the ocean sunset.
Aquarium of the Pacific
If you aren’t the type to explore the ocean blue from the inside, enjoy its splendor on land at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. You can even venture to request a behind the scenes tour, where aquarium-goers can feed the awe-striking inhabitants of the fantastical live aqua environment.
Trump National Golf Course
Overlooking the Pacific shoreline in Rancho Palos Verdes, the Trump National Golf Course is an LA Father’s Day favorite. Donald designed this luxurious golfing landscape himself, so you can rest assured it will be a million dollar memory. Fresh air, sea breeze, and a breathtaking view will have Mom rolling the camera for hours while Dad tees off on the ultimate golfing terrain.
Camping with a touch of glamor brings the newest outdoor luxury vacation hybrid to LA. The Los Angeles Athletic Club has created an urban camping experience that allows for chic hotel amenities with an ample list of activities for enjoying the entertainment and wonder of the whimsical great outdoors.
Whether you’re an experienced shooter or just a rookie, the Oak Tree Gun Club has what you seek. Take on a game of trap and skeet, give it your best shot on the rifle and pistol ranges, and finish off a day of shooting with homemade pizza and a pint at the Oak Tree Bar & Grill.
White Water River Rafting
You’ll have to tack on a two-hour road trip to this adventure, but it’s well worth the drive up for a Kern River Tours excursion. One of their white water rafting (or other river activity) tours can be a one day-er, or it can last up to three days. Fun and food are found in bounty here, just supply the father.
This will be a special treat for the dads out there who know how to weekend brunch with ferocity. Food GPS and Firestone Walker Brewing Company combine the leading LA craft brewers, chefs, and coffee roasters to host this epic Collabrewtive brunch of all brunches. From 11:30 am to 3:30 pm, families can soak up the $50 per person, all-inclusive mid-Saturday morning delight in honor of your LA Father’s Day.
