Father’s Day should be that special day where Dad is singled out and thanked for his hard work. Serious… It’s not easy being the right-hand-man to mom. So to show him his efforts are appreciated, why not spend the day doing what he likes to do.

Dad the Coach

Father’s Day for “Dad-the-coach” is no different for the rest. He’s at the diamond, pitch, field or pool – ready and waiting for his team. But this year, why not let him coach from the stands? The NFL kicks off in June with many stadiums offering family zone ticket deals. Dad and a child can go to a Calgary Stampeders game for $33. Or, catch the Blue Jays  for about $70 for dad and a child.

A walk in the park at the end of the street or a walk in a national park is a great way to spend time with dad. This is the first summer since 1990 that the gondola at Sunshine Ski Resort is open for the summer crowd so why not plan a trip to Sunshine Meadows in Banff National Park? The gondola and the Standish Chairlift do all the work, you get to take an easy stroll through beautiful alpine meadows.

Want a thrilling hike across a suspension bridge? Head to North Vancouver to Lynn Canyon and follow the trails to the suspension bridge across the narrow gorge. At 40 metres long and 50 metres above the water, it’s a pretty thrilling crossing.
