4 Ways to Spend Quality Time with Dad
Start off the day with a game of golf followed by lunch with dad or brunch with the whole family.

A special way to spend time with your dad is with a family paint party at WildArt. Having a private party with up to 10 family members will bring everyone together in a fun and creative way! Painting together in the relaxing environment at WildArt will give you time to bond while you unplug from technology. Everyone will leave the studio with a one-of-a-kind keepsake along with great memories from a whole lot of love and laughter.
If your dad is a TV and film fanatic, he’ll enjoy seeing the Hollywood of the South®. When you were growing up, did your dad also love trivia? If he knew all the answers to Jeopardy, he might enjoy playing some trivia when visiting local film destinations such as the Covington Square. Search out the Walk of Stars that list the actor, project, year filmed and a prominent gold star to recognize many of the productions filmed here. Your dad might even share some stories from when he watched the original Dukes of Hazzard, In the Heat of the Night, Remember the Titans or Cannonball Run. He can also test his knowledge of TV and film against our witty tour guides during a Vampire Stalkers Mystic Falls tour.
If your dad is into nature, spend the day with him at Factory Shoals Recreation Park. Located where the Alcovy River flows into Lake Jackson, the park is a 450-acre haven for anyone who loves to fish, hike, swim, and enjoy the shoals. This is a great place to take a nature hike and then find a relaxing spot along the water as the kids swim and play. While you are walking along the nature paths, you’ll also see remnants of history. Several textile factories were attracted to the numerous shoals and rapids along this section in the early 1800s.
