Father's Day Golfing

Father’s Day is approaching quickly. What do you have planned?

Like mothers, most fathers are pretty easy to please on their designated holiday. As long as we show care, put some thought into it, and take their likes and dislikes into account, they appreciate whatever we do for them.

In this short post, we’ll share some good restaurants in the area that always offer great Father’s Day specials. We’ll also share some family activities that the dads in our lives will love.

The key to a successful Father’s Day is to listen. If Dad is stressed out, one of the best gifts you can give him is leaving him alone and letting him do what he enjoys in the morning– reading the paper, watching television, reading a book, playing a round of golf, or anything else he likes.

Then, spend some quality time with him. It’s really that simple.
