Father’s day doesn’t have to be all about ties or pizza (unless that’s what he really wants). Take him to a ball game or enjoy KISS-aoke after playing mini-golf. Maybe he fantasizes about being a knight for an evening or enjoys a pirate experience? There’s no lack of choices when you live in Las Vegas. Treat dad to a fun outing and build some memories together.

KISS Mini-Golf

Las Vegas, NV 89169
(702) 558-6256

If dad loves to rock and roll all night to KISS, this is the place for him. It’s everything KISS, from the music and ambience to the Destroyer Boots (yes he can wear them and have his photo taken for only $5). If he think he rivals Paul Stanley’s or Gene Simmons’ vocals, perhaps he’d enjoy KISS-aoke, free from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Monday evenings. But mostly, it’s about the KISS-inspired Monster Mini-Golf where the whole family can try their skill and luck for $11.95.


Mob Museum
300 E. Stewart Ave.
Las Vegas, NV 89101
(702) 229-2734
www.themobmuseum.orgIs your dad fascinated by Bugsy Malone, Al Capone or Bugsy Siegal? Then a trip to the Mob Museum might be the ideal Father’s Day experience for him. The Mob Museum presents a well-organized and fascinating authentic trip back into the influence of organized crime and law enforcement on Las Vegas and its history. Best yet, Las Vegas locals get a special admission price of $10 with an ID.Related: Best Mini Golf Courses In Las Vegas

Tournament of Kings
The Excalibur
3850 Las Vegas Blvd. S.
Las Vegas, NV 89109
(702) 597-7600
www.excalibur.com

Is dad a fan of “Game of Thrones” or has the legend of King Arthur always fascinated him? Then this would be the perfect way to make him a knight for a day by treating him to a visit and dinner at the Tournament of Kings at The Excalibur. Imagine real horses, real dinner, knights and knaves dining like a medieval king while watching the jousting show and other entertainment. Just beware that there is an allergy/asthma warning, so you may want to take this into account since you’ll be ringside.



51s Baseball

Cashman Field
850 Las Vegas Blvd. N.
Las Vegas, NV 89101
(702) 386-700
www.milb.comDoes dad love baseball? If he follows the games regularly on TV, then just maybe he’d like to go to a game here in town. Enjoy a late afternoon/early evening Father’s Day at one of the 51s’ games. While the game may not fall right on Father’s Day, there’s nothing wrong with celebrating a little early or a bit after the fact. This can be great fun for the whole family.Related: Best Spots for a Picnic in Las Vegas

If dad is into swashbuckling excitement, pyrotechnics and pirate battles, coupled with beautiful sirens who try to lead the pirates astray, the outdoor attraction of Sirens of Ti may be exactly what he would enjoy on Father’s Day. He will witness high dives into the water from the crow’s nest, sword fights and brilliantly colored lights and fireworks as the ship “sinks” after the battle is done. The whole family will thrill to the spectacle and dad can be Jack Sparrow in his imagination for one bright and shining moment.
