Happy Father's DayFather’s Day Ideas For Every Type Of Floridian Dad

Father’s Day is coming upon us quickly so it’s crunch time for making plans. Knowing that not all Dads are made the same…we have come up with several options that may work for your special man. Show him how much you care with a Gift Certificate to a Florida Bed and Breakfast Inn! Whether your Dad is/does:

Enjoys a fine meal ~ There’s nothing like al fresco dining on the water. Or is a no-frills dad who’d rather go out for burgers and beer ~ Perhaps taking him to a sports bar for casual dining and watching a game.

For the dad who loves to get out and move, enjoy a little adventure and spend time with the family: Why not try a picnic? Florida has beautiful Local and State Parks with plenty of activities such as nature trails, kayaking, paddle board, bike trail, nature cruises, canoeing, hiking or perhaps an airboat ride through the Everglades…something for everyone in the family.

Does Dad like fishing? There are several fishing piers throughout the state, state parks or chartering a boat for deep sea fishing which may be more his style.

 Does Dad think he’s a golf pro? There may be more than 1,000 golf courses in Florida offering a short course for beginners, greens with varying elevations, wetland areas that attract wildlife or semi-private courses offering various tee times.

 For the dad who just wants to unwind: Give him a spa day… Yes, men enjoy spas too. Florida has some of the Best Spas in the country. Or “Dad can always bro it up at ManKind—a spa for men—where all services come with a complimentary beverage (beer or wine). The establishment recommends its One of a Kind shave, which is great for men with sensitive skin. Alternatively, you can make dad a massage appointment (as long as mom is OK with the all-female spa staff) or let a real shoe-shine specialist spiff up his kicks.”

Is Dad a Fan of History? There are countless museums, notable estates, other historical buildings, or cultural art museums across Florida where Dad can enjoy the days of yesteryear.Father's Day

Tropical Bar on the beach - Naples, Florida

Cool off with a drink at this tropical, beachfront café in Naples, Florida.

Naples is one of Southwest Florida’s gems. It boasts superlative beaches and many beautiful, challenging golf courses. It is widely recognized for its world-class shopping and abundant restaurants. Opportunities for outdoor recreation are numerous and varied: salt-water and fresh-water fishing, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, bird watching, and more.

Explore the nearby Florida Everglades or take a manatee sightseeing tour. Enjoy a Champagne Sunset Cruise aboard a Catamaran, or look for alligators and panthers during a wilderness adventure tour. Kayak into the backwaters of the Everglades, or learn to sail. The possibilities may not be endless, but they are numerous enough to keep guests of Southwest Florida Bed and Breakfasts happy for weeks.

In addition to outdoor activities, Naples is home to several fine art galleries and museums. The Naples Museum of Art displays sculptures, paintings and drawings by acclaimed artists from around the world. Its permanent collection continues to grow and includes French Protest Posters from May 1968 and Masters of Miniature; current visiting exhibitions include Modern Mexican Masters and Leaders in American Modernism.

Other draws of Naples Florida include the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra – considered one of the top regional orchestras in the country – and a variety of festivals that take place throughout the year. Book a room in a Southwest Florida Bed and Breakfast in April during the Venetian Carnival. Visit in May for the Outstanding Artists of Florida Exhibition and the Kayak Fishing Classic, or come in June for the Festival of Great Organ Music.

Couples will find Naples, Florida, ideal for romantic getaways. It is a place made for long walks on sugary beaches and cool drinks at sidewalk cafés. There is fine dining in Naples, Florida, as well as plenty of casual places to enjoy a meal. Seafood is of course a specialty here, but guests of Southwest Florida Bed and Breakfasts will also find a wide variety of cuisines such as Thai, Caribbean, French and Irish.

Naples is less than 30 minutes from the Florida, Everglades and an hour south of Sanibel Island. It’s a wonderful addition to any SW Florida Bed and Breakfast vacation.
