Father’s Day is upon us. And with that in mind, we thought to share some possible activities you can do with your old man today. You may find this post especially useful if you still don’t know what to do and are trying to find something last minute. It’s okay, we all do it.
For the Outdoorsy Father
If he loves spending his time outside enjoying nature’s landscapes, you have to consider taking him hiking on the Sara Wan Trailhead at Corral Canyon. This is where mountains views meet the sea’s horizon. And best yet, Malibu’s Corral Canyon is the only coastal canyon in Los Angeles county that has never been developed. That’s right, raw nature, just as it was intended.
The Art Lover
Just in time for the Father’s Day weekend, bring him to the Pasadena Chalk Festival where more than 600 artists gather to make street art in many styles from classical to contemporary. Held at the Paseo Colorado Shopping Center (280 E Colorado Blvd.) it’s the largest street painting festival in the world. In addition to the art, there’s plenty of food, shopping, and live music to enjoy. Oh and it’s free, so go.
If he can’t resist the chance to kill two birds with one stone, you gotta take him to Blind Barber in Culver City. Not only can he get a traditional haircut and straight-razor shave here (please take him if he needs one,) he can also enjoy crafted cocktails at their speakeasy space. Yes, this place doubles as both a barbershop and a bar; business in the front, party in the back. The atmosphere has a younger, hipper vibe, so make sure that’s cool with him. The happy hour is 6-8pm btw, if you’re into that.
