Father’s Day, which happens on the third Sunday of June (June 18 this year), is a day designed to honor our dear old dads. This is a day to enjoy a little family time and show appreciation for all the things he does for you. Of course, not everyone shares a ‘traditional’ family dynamic. So consider this a day to celebrate that person in your life who helps you financially, emotionally, or otherwise. And if you need some help, consider the following great places to go with your dad and things to get to celebrate this Father’s Day in College Station…
4 Father’s Day Activities and Gift Ideas in College Station
- Grill Out in the Vineyards. Every year, College Station’s picturesque Peach Creek vineyard and winery hosts a special Father’s Day grill out. For $52.50, you get two steaks and plenty of extras (including a bottle of wine) to create and share a delicious dinner with dad in a one-of-a-kind College Station backdrop. This is especially a good Father’s Day choice for dads who love grilling and are coming to visit you from out of town.
- Grab a Bold Aggie Dad Shirt. Head over to Aggieland Outfitters and get this ‘Bold Aggie Dad’ t-shirt. College spirit + comfortable cottons = the perfect little Father’s Day gift. This shirt is an ideal way to share your pride in TAMU.
- Go fishing or boating at Lake Bryan. Or, if you’re up for a little drive, go down to Somerville Lake. The sunny weather of June is just begging for you to be outdoors. So grab the fishing poles, maybe a six-pack for dad, and head out for some great largemouth bass angling down at one of these lakes near College Station.
- Get brunch or dinner at Christopher’s. Christopher’s World Grille is one of the best, fine dining restaurants in College Station. They are one of the few places that offer more of a formal dining setting with globally-sourced menu items. Plus, every year they offer a fantastic Father’s Day brunch and dinner menu. But you’ll need to make reservations as this offer tends to fill up fast!
