Father's Day is this Sunday, June 18! Make Dallas a part of your weekend plans and let our guides help you plan for the perfect day.


Hit the Golf Range

Treat dad to a game on the green at one of Dallas' notable golf courses. Book a tee time at Tenison Park that has two 18-hole courses to play on or take it easy with some practice swings on the range.  Keeton Park was named one of the Top 50 driving ranges in the country, so show off your skills or get some tips from a PGA pro. Grab a bite to eat at the cafés on site to keep you fueled while you play.


Go for a Sport Outing

Treat dad to the ultimate Dallas Cowboys experience. Tour the impressive AT&T stadium – deemed the world's largest dome structure, check out the players' locker rooms and stand on the field for the perfect photo opportunity on the star. Or make an afternoon outing at Globe Life Park to see the Rangers take on the Mariners. Grab a beer and a hot dog, and you're set for the perfect day.

Spend the day in the Arts District

If dad is into art, take him to the Dallas Arts District to explore all it has to offer.  Take a stroll through Klyde Warren Park and grab lunch from the food trucks on the scene. Then, check out a museum like the Dallas Museum of Art (it's free!) or the Nasher Sculpture Center. End the day with a show at the AT&T Performing Arts Center to see Something Rotten or Inherit the Wind.


Trek the Trinity Audobon Trails

Make your way to the Trinity Audobon Center in Dallas and spend some time exploring the trails. The center offers five miles of trails, 120 acres of restored prairieland, and plenty of bird watching opportunities with more than 60 species that call the area home. Plus, you can rent binoculars to get a closer look!

Go for lunch in Trinity Groves

No matter what Dad is into, Trinity Groves is the place to go: the foodie destination in West Dallas has an impressive lineup of restaurants. Need seafood? Stop at Amberjax for a lobster roll. More into burgers? Go for the laidback patio and table game at Off-Site Kitchen. And if you're in the mood for something sweet, Cake Bar won't disappoint. Their generous slices of homemade cakes are a great way to end your meal but the fun doesn't have to stop there. Go for an after-lunch cocktail at Saint Rocco's and enjoy gorgeous views of Downtown Dallas or walk it all off along the Ron Kirk Pedestrian Bridge, which also offers eye-catching views of the city.
