It’s Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19th and if you haven’t already thought about how you’re going to celebrate dad, now is the time. We know what you are thinking. “Just what are we going to do for Dear Old Dad?” Hmm. We can help you with that. There are a lot of dads at our many conveniently located Valley Honda Dealers. So we asked them “What would you like to do on Father’s Day?” We got some interesting responses.

“Take a weekend trip to Paris.” (Ah, Oui Monsieur! Would you like pommes frites with that?)

“Bungee jump into the Grand Canyon.” (Uh, they don’t let you do that. Pick again.)

“Dress up as Elvis and hit the Las Vegas Strip.” (Interesting choice. May we suggest therapy?)

“Invite the Kardashians over for dinner.” (Fascinating. But delusional.)

“Play golf all weekend.” (Now we’re talking.)

“Have a great brunch or dinner with my family.” (Now that’s something we can definitely help you with! Read on for some fabulous dining choices that are perfect for Father’s Day.)

“Attend some terrific Father’s Day events and activities around town.” (We got you covered. There are lots of things to do in the Valley of the Sun this Father’s Day. Check some of them out below.)
