Father’s Day in the Grand Haven Area

A quick reminder that Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 18. The Grand Haven area offers something for every father to enjoy on their special day, from restaurants and shops to parks and beaches. If you don’t know what to do for Dad this year, here are some ideas.

Relax on the Beach

If your looking for a day to just hangout with dad and give him a day of relaxation the Grand Haven Area has plenty of beaches for you to spend the day at.

Swing Away on the Range

Golfing is a classic Father’s Day activity. The Spring Lake Country Club, Pigeon Creek Golf Course, and American Dunes are just a few of the 25 public and private courses in the area. With so many courses to choose from, you’re bound to have a great game (or two). If you’re looking for something more laid-back and kid-friendly, there’s a mini-golf course at Chinook Pier Park in downtown Grand Haven.

Reel in a Fish

Who doesn’t love reeling in the catch of the day? Fishermen have been finding success in Lake Michigan and Spring Lake for centuries now. If you have your own boat, you can take it out on the water from one of our many public boat launches. If you’d rather have someone else take care of the heavy lifting, consider renting a charter boat and hang with the fishing experts! A captain will take you out to an ideal fishing spot and help ensure you get the perfect catch.

Have a Drink

After being out and about all day, nothing will taste better than a crisp, cold beer or hard cider. The Grand Haven area offers many local breweries that take the time and effort to craft drinks that will satisfy anyone’s taste buds. Toast to Father’s Day at Odd Side Ales,  Burzurk Brewing or Grand Armory Brewery.

Grab a Bite to Eat

Chances are you’ll need a nice meal to finish out your perfect day with Dad. Whether you want to do some bar hopping or get everything all in one place, there’s a variety of cuisine available in the area. Dine on some stacked sandwiches at The Toasted Pickle, fresh seafood at Snug Harbor, creamy pasta at Porto Bello, and so much more.


With so much to do and see, Father’s Day in the Grand Haven area is sure to be a memorable one. For more ideas, visit the “Things to Do” section of our website.

Wishing all the Dads a very Happy Father’s Day!
