Father's Day Adventures in Arkansas

Located in the heart of Arkansas and serving the surrounding areas, Arkansas Family Doulas has compiled a list of exciting events this Father's Day that will make dad really feel special.

It can be difficult to find the perfect event or activity that the whole family can enjoy and really have fun, while still making it specific to the father in your life.

Some dads like spending Father's Day out and adventuring while others are much more inclined to seize the opportunity to get a little extra rest and relaxation.

Below are some ideas for you and your family around the beautiful state of Arkansas.

Soak in the sunshine!

Pack up the kids and a big basket of lunch and head to the nearest park. Parents can sit back and relax while the kids play, and dad can grill up his signature dish with some fresh local produce from the nearest farmers market. Outdoorsy fathers will love the opportunity to get outside with their kids and do some hiking or even horseback riding. If your dad isn't the hiking type, he certainly couldn't turn down an amazing BBQ lunch with all of his favorite people. This could get you thinking outside the restaurant box this Father's Day.

Looking for a little more thrill than grill?

Take a weekend adventure to the nearest zip-line park! Zip-lining is one of the newest outdoor recreation trends and for good reason. Most zip-lines have breathtaking views of the Arkansas landscape that you are completely immersed in. Get birds eye views while zooming high in the air with an adrenaline rush that dads will not forget. There are zip-lines available in multiple skill levels, from beginner to expert that will accommodate each family member. Set the adventure bar high this Father's Day to the nearest zip-adventure park near you!

Get Moving this Father's Day.

Arkansas is always on the move. There are numerous activities that will get your family out and enjoying the summer sunshine while making exercise fun. Families can reserve spots on a bicycle tour through historic areas of Little Rock that even include bikes, trikes and safety gear! For the older crowd there are also bike tours that include samplings of the best barbecue in Little Rock and hand crafted bourbon and spirits. Get Dad and the family out to see the sites and sounds of the bustling city and the rich history of our area. Dads will love spending time with his family and appreciate the change of scenery as you go zooming around town without having to cart all the heavy bikes to and from!

Put on some sunscreen and hit the water slides. 

A water park is always a great time especially to cool off and cut summertime heat as a family. We are fortunate enough to have a large water recreation park in our area, take advantage of a sunny beautiful day here as dad works on his tan and gets to test his bravery on massive water slide fun! If you get a larger group together there you might be able to grab a discounted rate.
