Have The Best Father’s Day Ever At A Vacation Pool Home!


Father’s Day will be here before we know it! If you’ve planned an Orlando trip around Father’s Day (June 18th this year), be sure to treat Dad to an unforgettable and special day. Every father is different, and some dads might love a day of meeting princesses at Disney World, but who wouldn’t? However, if your dad would prefer another type of adventure, Vacation Pool Homes has you covered. We’ve compiled a list of fun options for every type of dad. Here are some outgoing things to treat Dad to, to show him how much you appreciate him!

For The Outdoorsy Dad:

  • Fishing: Florida has been called the Largemouth Bass Capital of the World, so it’s no secret why we’re starting this post with a fishing recommendation. Take dad to Lake Monroe or Lake Harris, both conveniently located near Orlando and a short drive from your vacation rental.

  • Take An Airboat Tour: Zip through the Everglades on an airboat tour and try to spot an alligator or two! These tours are easily accessible from Orlando, and are sure to make lasting memories!

For The Sporty Dad:

  • Golf: With the Arnold Palmer Invitational hosted every year in Orlando, you can’t let Dad miss out on a chance to golf on one of Florida’s famous courses. Rent some clubs and head to the course. Practice on a driving range, or try out all 18 holes.

For The Dad Who Needs To Relax:

  • Go On A Brewery Tour: Is Dad a beer lover? Check out one of Orlando’s breweries, and go behind the scenes to find out how beer goes from the ground to the bottle. Stay for lunch or dinner and enjoy some traditional pub food.

  • Relax On The Beach: Take a day trip one of Florida’s gorgeous beaches. Pack up the cooler and head to Cocoa or Daytona beaches, great for snorkeling surfing. Is Dad a collector?  Search for shells at the famous Ponce Inlet, one of the best places in Florida to find seashells.

  • Lounge By The Pool: Does Dad just want to stay home on Father’s Day? Relax by the pool at your Vacation Pool Home, and enjoy the Florida weather. To make the day extra special, bring him a beer or grill up some burgers to really show him you appreciate what he does for the family.

For The Fashionable Dad

  • Go Shopping: Orlando is packed with malls and outlets that will make the fashionable dad’s head spin. For high-end fathers, try The Mall At Millenia, which offers upscale stores like Burberry, Armani, and Gucci, as well as more affordable options. If you’re looking for discounts, try the Orlando International Premium Outlets, which have factory stores like Under Armour, Calvin Klein, LaCoste, and Levis.

For The Kid-At-Heart Dad

  • Hit Up A Theme Park: Of course, you can go to Disney World or Universal, but don’t forget about the dozens of water parks in Orlando! If dad is looking for fun in the sun, and some thrilling rides, don’t miss out on a theme park of his choosing.

  • Indoor Skydiving: Orlando has several indoor skydiving facilities. Strap on a helmet and a fly suit, and experience the adrenaline of freefalling, all while staying safe indoors. This one is fun for the whole family!

For The Animal Lover Dad

  • Go On A Safari: Many people dream of going on an African Safari. If you’re looking for a similar experience closer to home, check out one of Orlando’s safari options. This safari gives you the option to see the sites by camelback! See grazing herds, exotic game, zebras, lions, lemurs, and more!

  • Zoo: If Dad loves animals, but doesn’t necessarily want to get up close and personal with them, opt for a day at the local zoo! See wildlife shows and exhibits, and take a look at non-native animals like polar bears, pandas, and penguins!
