Father's Day is coming up and I am looking for gift ideas or fun things to do with my dad around my apartment in Tampa?

May is all about Mother's Day, but as you know, Father's Day soon follows. This year the day to celebrate dads all around falls on Sunday, June 20th. Whether it is your own dad, your father-in-law, or your husband, we put together some unique ideas for gifts and fun things to do around your Tampa apartment that any dad will surely love.

Fishing Trip

What dad doesn't love to fish? Maybe a trip to Clearwater Beach to fish off Pier 60 or fish in Honeymoon Island State Park, just a short drive from Tampa. To find a Tampa fishing charter, you may want to check out the website FishingBooker.com to scroll through options that are available by location and date. Or Tampa Fishing Charters, Inc. with a location in downtown Tampa offers deep-sea fishing charters, boat tours, party cruises, and gift cards to be used at a later date.


If the father being celebrated enjoys a round of golf, check out our other post on some popular Tampa golf courses. Or Topgolf Tampa is a popular spot to spend the day, grab some food and beverages and everyone is sure to have a good time there, and they also sell gift cards.


Speaking of good food and beverages, many options offer just that around your apartment in Tampa. From local seafood, fine dining, or breweries, we are sure you will find just what any dad would like. Cigar City Brewing offers three locations with the main brewery and tap room located on Spruce Street west of downtown Tampa. Another favorite place to dine with a great view is Whiskey Joe's Bar & Grill, located off of the Courtney Campbell Causeway. Whiskey Joe's has a great space on the beach with tiki bars, deck seating, along with indoor dining offering festive drinks and plenty of seafood.

Sporting Event

The Tampa area has something for every sports lover, including this year's super bowl champions- Go Bucs! But there are a lot more teams than just the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. For baseball, there is the Tampa Bay Rays, for soccer there is Tampa Bay Rowdies, hockey Tampa Bay Lightning, and of course, the University of South Florida Bulls. Maybe attend an event or buy a ticket or season passes for the father to use for a future event.

Fun for the Whole Family

Maybe the dad is looking to take a break from his busy schedule and just wants a day to spend with his family. The ZooTampa at Lowry Park, Busch Gardens, or east of Tampa is Legoland. One of these locations is sure to be fun for the whole family. Check online because all the parks usually run specials throughout the year to save a little money on your trip.

We hope this list gets you thinking about ways to celebrate the dad in your life this year around your apartment in Tampa. June 20th will be here before you know it, and some of these ideas may be booked as the summer season comes upon us.
