Father's Day | Holiday Builders
Home Builder Value Homes
Father's Day is celebrated annually on the third Sunday in June. This year, the holiday falls on Sunday, June 20th coinciding with the first day of summer. In most parts of the country, that means dad will be able to enjoy warm weather and sunshine. In Florida and Coastal Alabama, the warm weather element is a certainty. 

Holiday Builders has devised a list of Father's Day ideas and gift suggestions for our dear old dads. And by ours - we mean all the dads living in Florida and Coastal Alabama or wishing they did.

Take Dad Fishing

There's nothing like being out on the water. We know a lot of dads who enjoy boating and fishing. Lucky for "our dads" there are many options to make this happen. If your dad doesn't have his own boat, why not arrange for a professional guide to take dad out fishing for Father's Day? 

Port St Lucie on Florida's Treasure Coast offers many great outings for anglers. We found a great website that shows all the various charter boats, destinations and information on the fish dad wants to catch. Websites like Fishing Booker come in handy but a quick Google search of Port St Lucie fishing charters will reveal a long list of providers. 

"Hopping aboard a Port St. Lucie fishing charter will put give you the chance to explore the St. Lucie River, as well as the variety of inlets, creeks, and lakes – and the mighty Atlantic is just a stone’s throw away!" The Fishing Booker/PSL

If you're in the Florida panhandle, you can send Dad venturing into Gulf waters for an outstanding fishing adventure. From Pensacola, Florida to Gulf Shores, Alabama the coast stretches nearly 40 miles and you can't throw a Father's Day necktie without hitting a fishing charter provider. Once again, the Fishing Booker website folks have compiled a summary of charter companies from which to choose. Or if you're in the area, just ask around for a referral. 

"We’ll start inshore, where a couple of hours can sometimes be enough to get you filling the boat. Bull Redfish and Gator (Spotted Sea) Trout promise to put up a fight, while Sheepshead and Flounder will make for delicious rewards. Come in summer and you can battle it out with a Tarpon, or go after Mackerel and Pompano by the mouth of the bay. 
When Red Snapper season hits, however, all attention shifts to the reefs. The action is good all summer, and you’ll want to spend 6–8 hours on the water getting your fish on. Go after these prized creatures along with other Snapper species, Groupers, Cobia, Amberjack, and Triggerfish, and head home with plenty of meat to feast on." The Fishing Booker/Pensacola

Golf in Cape Coral

Resist the urge to buy dad socks or a tie. Instead, put dad on the golf course. For this gift suggestion we made our way to sunny Southwest Florida where golf is king. The Cape Royal Golf Club is featuring a Golf and BBQ promotion where dad's get 18 holes of golf, plus a full BBQ meal for $45 plus tax both Saturday and Sunday, June 19th and 20th. Book a tee time between 7 am to 12:50 pm. 

Our model center on Chiquita Blvd is a short six miles from the Cape Royal Golf Club. Feel free to drop by and visit us at 3101 Chiquita Blvd or visit us online to learn more about new Holiday Builders homes in Cape Coral. 

To The Moon Dad

If you have a dad who prefers a more "climate controlled" Father's Day, here's an outing that is sure to be thrilling but without blood or sweat. Treat dad to a day at the Kennedy Space Center. The Kennedy Space on Florida's Space Coast, provides visitors with a full day of fun with educational exhibits and adventures chronicling the history of man in space. Plus, dad can immerse himself in adventures like astronaut training. We found some great ideas on OrlandoInsiderVacations.com highlighting ideas for dad at the Space Center. 

Holiday Builders offers new homes in Palm Bay on Florida's Space Coast. Palm Bay is about 50 miles south of the Kennedy Space Center. For more information on new homes by Holiday Builders in Palm Bay, click here. 

Food Is Always Good

There is one clear path to every man's heart and it isn't lost on dads. That path is food. Your dad may not be a fisherman, a golfer or a space adventurer, but surely - he is fond of a good meal. For these dads we offer recommendations on a couple of our favorite dining establishments.

The Garlic in New Smyrna Beach offers a variety of cuisine in a very unusual venue. The dining spaces at The Garlic are interspersed between works of art, pottery, plants and even trees. Musicians are placed in several of the different areas within the restaurant. Reservations are not accepted so prepare to wait a bit before being seated. The Garlic is packed most every hour it is open. 

Holiday Builders offers new homes in nearby Palm Coast with new communities soon to come in Edgewater. These cities are within close proximity to one another on Florida's northeast coast. For more information on homes and these great northeast Florida coastal towns, click here. 
If dad is living anywhere near Vero Beach, consider making Father's Day reservations at the Ocean Grill. This Vero Beach icon has withstood the test of time. It was built by Waldo Sexton in 1941. It served as an Officer's Club during World War II. In the mid-1960's, the Replogle family came into town from Wisconsin to lease and operate the Ocean Grill. The family still manages all operations, with second generation of Replogles at the helm. This oceanfront restaurant is ripe with old-world charm. The bar overlooks an old ship wreck, the remains of which lie just below the surface of the ocean. Dining at the Ocean Grill is an unforgettable experience. 

You can find new homes by Holiday Builders in Harmony Reserve, a gated, 55 PLUS community in Vero Beach. Learn more about Harmony Reserve here.
