fathers day

Happy Friday, friends! For those of you who have forgotten... Sunday is Father's Day! I rounded up 10 awesome experience ideas for you to gift your pops this weekend! Doesn't necessarily mean the experience has to be had on Sunday and that will give you something to look forward to! I'm very lucky to have grown up very close to both of my parents. I love my Dad for countless reasons but one is that he is not one to care about material things. For as long as I can remember... Every Father's Day, every birthday, every holiday my dad said, no gifts! Let's just do something together! That being said... Enjoy time with your Dad! Surely, he will love the gift of simply spending time with you! Here's some great ideas of things to do together of with the whole family!

Xtreme Xperience
If your dad is anything like mine than he loves cars. Loves to look at them, research them and mostly, loves to drive them. Xtreme Xperience's goal is to make exotic cards accessible to everyone who has ever dreamed of driving one! Give your Dad the epic gift of driving one of the most luxurious, fastest cars on the planet with Xtreme Xperience!  Xtreme Xperience has 25+ events at 20 racetracks nationwide and a full-time location at NOLA Motorsports Park, you’re sure to find Xtreme Xperience at a racetrack near you.

Go Boating
What better way to spend a gorgeous Summer day than on Lake Michigan with your Dad and family! Treat your dad to a day on the boat!

Kayak the Chicago River
If you haven't done this yet, it's an absolute must!!! Kayaking the Chicago River is such a fun, different way to see the city! Urban Kayaks is a great company and it's not too pricey! Doing something active together is a great experience to give your Dad this Father's day!

Game Night Out
Ok, I don't know about you, but not much sounds more fun than a game night! Game night out takes your normal at home game night to the next level! You compete head to head in teams and play two hours of games! Plus, it's BYOB! How fun!!!

Miniature Golf
Who doesn't love miniature golf!? It's a perfect thing for the whole family to do together to celebrate dad!
