Best Places to Take Dad for Father’s Day in Abilene – Our Top 5

Father’s Day is coming up on June 15th, what are you getting dad this year?

Another tie?

Seriously? He doesn’t even wear a suit, why does he need another tie that you gave no effort in buying? Granted, he and mom may want to role play and pretend he’s Donald Trump and she’s some European chick, but other than that, the tie is useless and cliche.

The finest minds in all of the great land have put together a list of the top 5 places to take dad for Father’s Day in Abilene.

OK, you’re right, we are nowhere close to the finest minds in the land, but we are dads.

In no particular, here’s our Top 5:

1. Local Steak House

You won’t find a dad on this planet that won’t include a steak house in his top 5 favorite places to spend on Father’s Day.

Looking for a good steak? You can’t go wrong with these places:


2. The Living Room

House of Pain

Take your dad to the living room and leave him there.

Unattended. For hours.

Trust me, all dad’s want a good stretch of peace and quiet. Let him have that peace and quiet while he’s in his favorite recliner or stretched out on the couch and you’ll have the happiest dad on the planet.


3. Miniature Golf

The idea that every dad loves to play golf and wants to do that on Father’s Day is preposterous, but I don’t know a dad that won’t enjoy an afternoon of miniature golf with his kid(s).

So, if you’re looking for a little miniature golf kind of fun for Father’s Day, then yell “Fore!” and check out one of the following places:


4. The Movies

All right, kids (young and old), dad has taken you to “your” movies for years. Let him pick this time. Who knows? You might be surprised to find out he wants to see one of your movies.

Regardless, this will give him a chance to stop saying, “The only movies I go to are kid’s movies, I never see adult movies until they hit DVD”.

Make sure you turn cell phones off and enjoy a movie.


5. The Park

I have to admit, some of the greatest memories I have of time with my daughter are those spent at the park, on the swings. Yeah, there are plenty of things to do at any local park, but swinging with (or pushing) my daughter really puts a smile on my face. I guess it’s the rhythm you get into on the swings, it’s just spiritual.

According to Chaz (and his research), “Abilene has 27 parks that cover over 1,000 acres in Abilene, so you have a plethora of parks to choose from.”

My favorite is Redbud Park, because of the huge playground, YMCA, and prairie dog field, but if you want to find out about all of the parks in this area, then check out #4 on Chaz’s post.


 

Stay cool and Happy Father’s Day.

While you’re figuring out what to do with that tie you know you’ll get, enjoy Louis CK talking about being a dad.
