Whether it’s great burgers and craft beers at a local brewery or a day out on the pristine waters of the bay, Newport Beach has something for every Dad. Read on to see our picks for the best activities, gifts and outings that Newport has to offer this Dad’s Day.
For the Foodie Dad: Head to Helmsman Ale House
For the lover of brews and bites, we recommend bringing dad down to Helmsman Ale House for a meal he won’t soon forget. With over a dozen specialty beers brewed in-house daily, a full bar and an expansive menu that goes well beyond typical brewhouse pub fare, it’s easy to see why Helmsman is a favorite amongst foodies and fathers alike.
For the Adventurous Dad: Jet Skiing, Parasailing and more!
For the Dad who loves a bit of adventure, we suggest taking a trip down to the harbor for some fun in the sun. With jet ski rentals within walking distance (Balboa Water Sports) and parasailing appointments available from sunrise to sunset (Balboa Parasail), Newport has plenty of ways to help you curate the perfect action-packed day out on the bay. The Dads seeking a bit of excitement this Father’s Day are sure to love these adventurous activities!
For the Aficionado Dad: Shop for Dad at Fashion Island
For the Dad who has a taste for the finer things in life, we recommend taking a trip to Newport Beach’s premier shopping destination: Fashion Island. Here, daughters and sons can stop by one of Dad’s favorite stores for an update to his favorite wear-to-work attire or slip into Hyde Park Jewelers to browse their ever-impressive selection of designer timepieces. Nothing says “I love you” more than some sleek apparel and a new watch!
For the Family Man: Visit the Balboa Fun Zone
For the Dad who enjoys fun with the whole family, look no further than the ever-iconic Balboa Fun Zone. With everything from ice cream shops and Ferris wheel rides to Duffy boat rentals (all within mere feet of one another), this one-of-a-kind destination has something for every family man to enjoy.
Gift Card Ideas
For the dads who don’t fawn over material items, we suggest browsing through some wonderful and unique experiences that can be wrapped up and gifted this Father’s Day. These include well-known favorites such as a golf pass to The Resort at Pelican Hill, a ride in his favorite sports car courtesy of Exotic Car Rental Newport Beach or even a trip to the delicious WagyuStop or The Butchery for some grilling supplies that are a cut above!
