Make this day all about Dad

Every June, Father’s Day gives us an opportunity to celebrate the dads in our life. From camping and fishing trips to beer tastings, golfing and more, here are some of our favorite ways to celebrate with Dad in Greater Miami & Miami Beach.

Cerveceria La Tropical interior
Discover a new craft beer with Dad

Brews & Wine

If your dad loves craft beer, take him to one of Miami’s many breweries. In Wynwood, you can sip a cold one at a number of spots, including Cerveceria La Tropical. This Cuban-inspired brewery features a taproom, a restaurant, live music, and Jardines La Tropical, a 10,000-square-foot tropical garden with 30-foot trees, orchids and exotic plants. The brewery has even partnered with Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden to offer guests a self-guided tour of the garden with interesting facts about the different plants. Doral is another neighborhood with a number of local breweries. The Tank Brewing Co. has a large brewery and tap room. Dad will love all of the beers here, especially the signature Freedom Tower American Amber, named after the iconic Miami landmark.

In South Dade, a fun family option on any weekend – especially when you’re celebrating Father’s Day – is Schnebly Redland's Winery & Brewery. This venue is home to Miami Brewing Company, where Dad can try fan favorite brews such as Shark Bait, a smooth wheat beer with mango, and the Big Rod, a coconut ale. If his favorite sport is wine tasting, then don’t miss Schnebly’s fun tastings and tours. After savoring wines made from local tropical fruits, your group can relax under the large tiki hut, eat a home-style dinner at The Redlander or simply enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Plan a golf day

Tee Time

If Dad has been complaining that he never has time to hit the links, then spoil him with a golf day. Crandon Golf Key Biscayne is set among mangroves and has been ranked as one of the top championship courses in the country. Its seventh hole – a par-4 that requires golfers to hit the ball over sparkling-blue Biscayne Bay – has been called “One of the Greatest Holes in Golf.” Miami Beach Golf Club, a historic 18-hole, par-72 course with an Art Deco clubhouse in the heart of Miami Beach, is another great option. Go a little farther north to the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa Golf Course, in Aventura, and treat your father to one of two championship 18-hole golf courses. Afterward, step into CORSAIR Kitchen & Bar, the golf course’s signature restaurant and bar. If he’s not up for 18 holes, you can always take him to Topgolf Doral and spend the afternoon hitting balls and playing point-scoring games.

Mountain Biking in Oleta River State Park
Take Dad on an outdoor adventure

Enjoy the Great Outdoors

If your dad loves outdoor adventures, take him to Oleta River State Park in North Miami Beach. Considered Florida’s largest urban park, this protected river estuary encompasses more than 1,000 acres of green space and tidal mangroves. You can camp there overnight in one of 14 rustic, air-conditioned cabins, or just spend the day kayaking, biking, hiking and swimming.

Great Grooming

Show Dad you love him with the gift of style. Treat him to some “man-pering” at The Spot Barbershop, with various locations offering both classic and contemporary cuts for men, from hot towel shave treatments and beard trimming to face masks and waxing.

Watch A Film Together

Celebrate Dad by celebrating the diversity of Miami. Starting June 15, the American Black Film Festival (ABFF) will return to Miami Beach for its 26th edition, bringing with it five days of in-person parties and networking opportunities followed by 11 days of virtual screenings and speaking events.

A Day Out With Dad

The annual Father’s Day Marketplace was established to celebrate men as the backbone of their communities. Make sure you carve out time for this event in Liberty City, where Dad can enjoy food trucks, drinks, spa services, pop-up shops, cigars and more.

Act Like a Kid Again

There’s nothing more exhilarating than acting like a kid, so pack your bags and head to Tidal Cove at JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa in Aventura. Spend the entire weekend floating along the lazy river, racing down a freefall loop, going on a gravity-defying raft ride or relaxing under one of 25 cabanas. Follow it up with dinner at the hotel’s signature restaurant, Bourbon Steak, which Dad is sure to love. The butter-poached steaks and duck fat fries are scrumptious.

Pelican Skipper
Go on the Father's Day Fishing Cruise

Fishing Fun on Father’s Day

Does your Dad love to fish? If so, give him a chance to catch a big one and have a great story to tell his friends. On Sunday, June 19, Deering Estate will host its annual Father’s Day Fishing Cruise. This fishing excursion is a three-hour trip aboard a 45-foot catamaran, the Pelican Island Skipper. Deering Estate naturalists are on board to educate guests about sea life and native birds. While some rods are available, guests are encouraged to bring their own rods and tackle. Bait will be provided.
