Are you traveling with your dad to NYC this Father’s Day? If so, you’re in luck. There’s no better city to celebrate a holiday in, and there’s no better place to find opportunities that your dad will absolutely love.
Here are some of best ways that you can celebrate your Father this year. From restaurants to sports games, he’ll be sure to enjoy his special day (and you will, too, right alongside him!)
Buy Him Tickets to a Yankees Game
Who doesn’t love baseball? Get your dad tickets to a game at Yankees Stadium, and you can cheer on one of the best teams in the country. While you’re there, be sure to get a hot dog and beer for a traditional American ballpark experience in the House that Babe Built.
Take Him to Dinner at Peter Luger
Practically every father loves a delicious steak. Take your dad to a celebratory meal on Father’s Day by making a reservation at legendary Brooklyn steakhouse Peter Luger.
This old school-style steakhouse is located at the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge, so the views are stunning. More importantly, the steak is so incredibly delicious that it will become your dad’s new standard for “perfect steak.” Come hungry. In addition to steak, you can enjoy traditional steakhouse delicacies like shrimp cocktail, wedge salad, a filet of sole and a host of side vegetables.
Arrange to Hit Golf Balls at Chelsea Piers
Is your dad a golfer? Take him to a driving range unlike one he’s experienced by arranging time to hit balls at the Golf Club at Chelsea Piers. The outdoor driving range at Chelsea Piers has four tiers. It also uses an automatic tee-up system so you don’t have to worry about those cumbersome buckets of balls.
In addition to hitting golf balls long distances, you can also practice your short game on the putting green. This is an excellent gift for a dad who’ll worry about his skills slipping when he’s on vacation in NYC and won’t have a chance to get out on a real course.
Get Him Tickets to See Hamilton
What better way to celebrate your own father than a show about the U.S. Founding Fathers? The smash musical success, Hamilton, which was written by Lin Manuel Miranda and won the Tony Award for best musical in 2016, has been a sellout since nearly the day it opened.
You can get tickets that are resold online. They cost a bit more than the face value, but resellers give you the easiest way to find tickets. Alternatively, you can enter the lottery to win free or cheap tickets, or check the box office the day of the show; sometimes, you can get cancellation tickets at face value.
Trust us: your dad will leave singing these catchy hip-hop tunes.
Go on a Sunset Cruise Around the Island
Does your dad love spectacular views and great food? If so, arrange for your party to go on a cruise of Manhattan around sunset. Bateaux Cruises offers an excellent three-hour cruise on the Hudson and East Rivers, during which you get a three-course meal, panoramic views of the city skyline, live music and a private table just for your party. There’s no better way to celebrate both your father and the legendary city of NYC than to get an unrivaled view of it from a boat on the water.
No matter how your dad enjoys spending time, he will love one of the items on this. Just choose an option that seems perfect for him.
