Father’s Day is a special day to celebrate fathers and father figures who do so much for us and are so important in our lives. We know that our fathers deserve the world and not just another tie for his collection. Luckily there’s a way you can give your dad a spectacular gift on a budget with a Fathers Day vacation experience!
Your first thought may be that booking a vacation for your dad is way outside your budget. Luckily, you can find a variety of free or low-cost activities, and you can rent a timeshare for incredibly low rates while still staying in luxurious, well-equipped accommodations.
Here are some fantastic Father’s Day vacation ideas that your dad will absolutely love—and so will your wallet!
You don’t have to be a space-enthusiast to enjoy a trip to the Space Coast of Florida. Some of the best area attractions include the Kennedy Space Center and its Shuttle Launch Experience, the American Space Museum and Space Walk of Fame, and the Exploration Tower. Tickets for these attractions run under $10, with the exception of the Kennedy Space Center. These tickets go for $50, but you can turn that into a full day experience.
Stay in Cocoa Beach to be close to these space-themed attractions while also enjoying the relaxed vibe of a coastal getaway. Check out our inventory of Ocean Landings Resort and Racquet Club timeshares and book a two-bedroom suite with access to swimming pools, tennis courts, and on-site dining.
What dad doesn’t love history? There is nothing like spending quality time with family while learning something new, and exploring America’s great history is a fun way to spend a vacation. Take a trip to Maryland and visit the nation’s capital, Washington DC. DC is known for its many free museums, making it easy to plan a full vacation itinerary with minimal spending. Be sure to check out the National Museums of Natural History, the National Museum of American History, National Museum of the American Indian, the Smithsonian, National Archives Museum, and many others—all completely free.
While activities in Washington DC cost virtually nothing, city hotels can be very pricey. Stay a bit outside of the city at Wyndham National Harbor. You’ll not only have easy access to the Metro, but the resort offers a shuttle service to get to the surrounding museums and monuments in DC. Wyndham National Harbor also offers multi-bedroom accommodations, a swimming pool, game room, and fitness center.
If your dad doesn’t love rock and roll music, is he really even your dad? Plan a Father’s Day vacation to the city of Austin for unforgettable live music experiences. Top venues include The White Horse, Sahara Lounge, and the Elephant Room. Many of these places feature free shows, and some charge a small cover. This is an incredible and affordable way to check out a number of shows from rock and country, to jazz and blues. You will also want to be sure you get some classic Texas BBQ during your trip.
Stay in one of our Texas Timeshare in Lakeway timeshares for a low-key lake retreat when you need a break from the nonstop music scene. Your dad will love fishing and boating along with various other water sports on-site. Accommodations offer two bedrooms, a full kitchen, and a gas fireplace.
With the warmer weather coming, who doesn’t love the beach? A beach vacation is just what dad needs for relaxation and fun. And spending days at the beach is a great way to vacation without spending a lot of money. This time of year, we recommend checking out the coast of Maine for a New England summer experience. Ogunquit is a charming beach town with a relaxed vibe and beautiful coastline. Pack a lunch and spend the day at the beach sunbathing, playing frisbee, and taking a dunk in the Atlantic. And it wouldn’t be a New England vacation without some seafood, so be sure to treat dad to a classic lobster roll from Perkins Cover Lobster Shack.
Take advantage of prime access to the shores by staying at The Falls at Ogunquit. One- and two-bedroom units are perfect for a family trip to celebrate dad with pools, an exercise room, and a picnic area with BBQ grills all available on-site.
