THE FAIRMONT FIVE fun father's day playdates

Father's Day is coming up!  We love dads and appreciate having so many wonderful fathers involved in their children's education.  Here are a few suggestions of fun places to go and things to do with dad on his big day:
  1. Nature hike--get out and enjoy the great outdoors together. Find a trail near you by going to LocalHikes and entering your zipcode.
  2. Movie--bond over popcorn and a family-friendly flick at your local cinema.
  3. Children's Museum--dads are really just big kids themselves, so they'll love a hands-on children's museum like Discovery Science Center or The Bowers Museum's Kidseum.
  4. Beach--so cal dads love the beach!  Head over to Crystal Cove State Park for swimming, tide pooling, and sand castle making.  Dad and kids will love the burgers and hand-blended shakes at the Shake Shack or for fancier fare book a reservation at the Beachcomber
  5. Camping--dad can showcase his outdoor survival skills on a weekend away camping. Check out these last minute camping ideas from Sunset magazine or for something even closer to home pitch a tent in your own backyard!
