Are you planning to surprise Dad with a beach vacation this Father’s Day? Or, maybe Father’s Day just happens to land in the middle of your summer vacation in Northwest Florida or Coastal Alabama. Either way, don’t worry. We have plenty of Dad-approved things to do at the beach that will definitely help make his day extra special!

One tried and true activity that most dad’s would love to experience is fishing. Book passage aboard a charter fishing boat in Destin, Pensacola Beach, Orange Beach or near any of our Gulf Coast destinations. These charters will allow you to take your Dad out for an in-shore or deep sea experience that will surely provide many fish tales for years to come! If you aren’t sure that Dad is up for a deep sea, all day experience, no problem. Go online to get your fishing license, grab a pole or two and do some shore or pier fishing!

If your Dad is into sports that are a little more, um, dry, that’s great, too! If he loves to golf, be sure to put his clubs in the care. Alabama’s Gulf Coast and the beaches of Northwest Florida provide some of the best golf courses in the South, many of which have been designed by top golfers and even feature incredible water views. If you will be on vacation in Destin, hit up Emerald Bay or Seascape golf clubs, both of which offer 20% off morning green fees and 10% off mid-day and twilight golf rates with Southern Perks.

There is one more thing we know all dads want to do on their special day and that’s eat something delicious! Treat Dad to some local seafood, fresh from the docks while on vacation in a condo or beach home with us. Some of our favorite choices include Harbor Docks in Destin, Sealand near our Fort Walton Beach condos and The Gulf in Orange Beach. We hope you enjoy an extra wonderful celebration with your family this Father’s Day!
