Father's Day In North East Florida
Celebrate Dad with North Florida Festivities
Looking for something fun to do with Dad this coming Father’s Day? There’s plenty of exciting family things to do around the Fernandina beach and Jacksonville area. Whether it’s going to the beach, cooking out or going on adventurous excursions, the whole family will be happy! Most importantly, Dad will be happy too! Make sure to spoil him around these lovely areas with all the beauty, great food and family friendly activities that North Florida has to offer.
Fishing the Pier
Where: Fort Clinch Park, Fernandina Beach
If the fam is feeling a bit outdoorsy, consider fishing from the long pier at Fort Clinch Park and catch yourselves some dinner. Maybe take it back to BBQ in the backyard for a fresh caught meal. Fort Clinch is a must if you’re visiting Amelia Island. Along with fishing, the whole family can hike, camp or sit out by the water.
Where: Lofton Creek, Fenandina Beach
Check out Lofton Creek and go on a Kayak excursion on its beautiful, calm black water canal system. A Kayak tour is also available, and it’s perfect for children or beginners as well.
A Downtown Visit
Where: Main Street, Fernandina beach
It’s always nice to take a walk along the historic Main Street of downtown Fernandina Beach. Take a joy ride around town in a horse-drawn carriages for the full experience. Be sure to buy Dad something nice in one of the many shops along the way. Without a doubt, it’s a shopper’s paradise and a fantastic place to dine (ahem, check out Timoti’s Seafood Shak in Fernandina Beach).
Where: Beach Blvd, Jacksonville
For some more adventurous dads, check out Adventuring Landing. If you buy one water park ticket you can get Dad’s free! There’s a wide range of exciting things to do, such as the Shipwreck Island water park or Gator Alley. There’s even laser tag and mini golf.
If you’re closer to the Jacksonville area, Jax is the place for having the perfect beach day and it’s just a short drive to Downtown. You can even have your own cookout on the beach, since both charcoal and gas grills are permitted. What would make a beach BBQ grill out even better is Timoti’s famous Cajun Blackening Seasoning blend, a perfect rub for any chicken, seafood, steak, or veggies.
Let Timoti’s Treat Dad!
If cooking isn’t on the Father’s Day agenda, why not stop by Timoti’s Seafood Shak for a great dinner? We promise, dad won’t be disappointed.
