The time is right to start planning for your most fun Father’s Day weekend yet! In a place as exciting to live as the Ormond Beach area, you’re bound to find something fun to do with the whole family. Between all the lovely Florida sunshine and free time for outdoor fun, you shouldn’t waste a single moment. Here’s some ideas to plan ahead for early-summer fun – or any sort of family-friendly fun, all summer long.
Celebrate with Sand and Sun
Ormond Beach is well-known for its lovely oceanfront – so holiday weekend planning would be incomplete without a relaxing, fun-filled day at the beach. As part of a 23-mile stretch of coastline covered in white sand, Ormond Beach offers endless opportunity to kick back and enjoy the expansive nature views, take a walk along the waves, observe local seabirds, or have fun with the kids splashing about and building sandcastles. With so many convenient spots for beach access, it’ll be the perfect way to create Father’s Day memories you won’t soon forget.
Reel in Your Next Catch
Get dad a gift he’ll truly enjoy – a day spent fishing with the family! Between the Halifax River and the Atlantic Ocean offshore, there’s endless options for fishing fun in Ormond Beach. Not sure of the best spots to visit? Enlist a fishing charter to get the expertise of a local guide familiar with the area! You’ll enjoy an easy and fun trip that’s great for the whole family, while a talented local captain can point out the best locations, local catches, and techniques to reel in some magic – and experience isn’t necessary!
Grab Some Great Food
Whether dad’s hungry for incredible, fresh seafood or any other type of local good eats, Ormond Beach is the place to be! Father’s Day weekend is the best opportunity to explore for new favorite bites. For example, opt for delicious shrimp, oysters, fish, and more at Riptides Raw Bar & Grill, along with live music and a laid-back, surfer vibe. Or, if you’re seeking something casual and fresh, don’t miss Hull’s Seafood Restaurant for right-from-the-ocean offerings – the restaurant doubles as a seafood market, just in case you want to bring some fresh fish home! Alternatively, try out Ormond Garage for American-style eats and enjoy their craft beer brewery – decorated with a touch of the area’s local racing history.
Catch a Baseball Game
What’s more fun and summery than bringing the family together to watch a baseball game? You don’t have to travel far to support a local team – Jackie Robinson Ballpark, opened in 1914, is home of the Daytona Tortugas. On Father’s Day, they’ll be facing the Palm Beach Cardinals – but you can enjoy plenty of other home games throughout the season. Plus, depending on the day of the week that you visit, you can enjoy different themed nights and special events – like catching some fireworks or bringing along your pet!
