8 ways to celebrate Father’s Day

Fathers and father figures play an important role in the lives of children. They are motivators, mentors, friends and confidants. Here are eight ways to celebrate all of the dads in your life this weekend.

1. Have brunch.

Many restaurants are devoted to making dads feel special on Father’s Day. Remember to make a reservation, as this is often one of the busiest weekends for restaurants. You can also serve up a healthy brunch at home with this baked apple-cinnamon French toast.

2. Go to the zoo.

Give your dad a bear hug at Zoo Atlanta.

3. Head to Stone Mountain.

Stone Mountain Park. is a wonderful place to go for a hike or take a picnic.

4. Visit the aquarium.

Sea the ocean with your dad at the Georgia Aquarium.

5. Watch a movie.

Take your dad out to the theater or simply enjoy a good movie from the comfort of your couch.

6. Check out a street festival.

Street festivals are a great way to experience the best music and food Atlanta has to offer. Dads may be particularly fond of the Atlanta Summer Beer Festival or Malts & Vaults of Oakland: Father's Day Edition at Oakland Cemetery.

7. Go fishing.

Grab your tackle box and find a nice fishing spot on Lake Lanier, just 30 minutes north of Atlanta. The lake is full of largemouth bass, crappies and walleye fish.
