Dining around Phoenix
Of course, we haven’t forgotten the main event of Father’s Day, brunch! Or indeed, tea, dinner, or all three. And with the selection of talented chefs, kitchens, eateries and restaurants around Phoenix, dads of every palate will find themselves spoiled for options. Blue Hound Kitchen and Cocktails boast an enviable selection of a la carte items, Westin Phoenix Downtown’s Jacy and Dakota’s brunch buffet offers an extensive meat, seafood and cheese bar while the CIELO restaurant’s carved bone-in leg of lamb is a local highlight. We recommend the versatile selection, live music and amenities at the Camelback Inn Resort and Spa for those families who can make the trip, where Dad can dine on salmon, chimichurri lamb chops and unwind with a full spa treatment afterwards.
Whether yours is a sports going family, baseball fanatics or just wanting to engage in Arizona sporting culture, catching the Diamondbacks game at Chase Field is a great addition to any travel plans here around Phoenix! Watch as the hometown heroes, the Arizona Diamondbacks are fending off the Minnesota Twins, and enjoy the electrifying atmosphere including food, drinks and the crowd at this major league baseball game in the Valley of the Sun.
Cars and Cowboys
It does what it says on the tin, a great way for dads to enjoy the spectacle of Arizona cowboy culture and the car show, with live music, food and small business pop-ups amid over 100 classic cars and the Cowboy show! This is a great photo opportunity as well as a trip to write home about, out on the Blazin M Ranch.
Hiking, Picnicking around Phoenix
We’ve put these two together due to their proximity, Papago Park is another of these lookouts over Phoenix celebrating the natural beauty of Arizona, while also making for a great viewpoint and family hiking trip on its own. The Desert Botanical Garden is a further celebration of the natural beauty of this state, showcasing its native variety of flora in a colorful and lush backdrop, a great tour for families to enjoy the natural beauty of Arizona with Dad in the June sunset.
