Grilling and Father's Day are synonymous. But instead of buying dad new grill utensils or a "Kiss the Cook" apron, why not take a different spin on it? This year, consider gifting your father grilling lessons.
Chef JJ's Grilling Chef Table, in Broad Ripple, offers several different small plate grilling classes. Participants will get great recipes, non-alcoholic drinks and beer tastings. This dining experience/lesson will help you father hone his grilling skills while eating fresh, local food. Classes range in price from $45 - $55 per person.
If your father is a baseball fan, you don't have to drive to Chicago, St. Louis or Cincinnati to treat him to a great baseball experience. The Indianapolis Indians offer great minor league baseball and great prices - at one of the prettiest minor league baseball fields in the country! Stay close to home and take the entire family! Tickets begin at just $10.
If your dad is adventurous and up for anything, perhaps he'd enjoy a skydiving experience. Dad will thank you as he plummets toward the earth after jumping from an airplane! If you're brave enough, consider joining your father for a special bonding experience!
SkyDive Indianapolis offers special Father's Day packages and is locally owned and operated. The company has an excellent safety record, so if you're crazy enough to jump out of an airplane, SkyDive Indianapolis can help! Their regular price for a jump is around $200.
For dads who enjoy fishing, you could buy him the typical set of lures or a new pole. Or, you could join him on a special child/father fishing trip. If you want to do something completely different, consider taking Dad on a special guided fishing trip.
One such option is Terry McWilliams' FishIndy. FishIndy provides a guided fishing tour, complete with lots of tips and techniques. Dad will get an education on bass fishing - everything from bass behavior to season patterns on Indiana waters. Courses are customized to your interests. Prices begin at $200 for a four hour trip for 1 - 2 people.
For the dads that love to golf, the obvious Father's Day gift would be a package of his favorite brand of golf balls, a new polo shirt or any number of golfing accessories. If you want to step things up a bit this year, consider purchasing golf lessons. When it comes to the game of golf, there's always room for improvement and Dad will appreciate the opportunity to get a few pointers from a pro. Once Dad has perfected his swing, take him for a game at his favorite golf course.
Nearly every course has a golf pro on hand to offer lessons, so there's no shortage of options. Prairie View Golf Academy offers lessons for anyone wishing to hone their golf skills. Dad will learn how to read the greens and improve his swing. Single lessons begin around $90. Packages are also available.
