On behalf of the wannaB inn, we would like to wish all of the Dad’s out there a very Happy Father’s Day!

At the wannaB, we know that there is no better way to celebrate Father’s Day than to get out and spend some quality time with the big guy. So, if you’re looking for some ideas for what to do this weekend, here are some of our favorites:

Going to the Beach

With 900 feet of pristine beach at the wannaB, we love to spend time basking in the sunshine, listening the waves. So why not grab Dad and hit the sand for the day? While you’re there you can search for shells or sharks’ teeth, toss around the football, build sand castles, or splash around in the water. There is no shortage of things to do at the beach.

Fishing

It’s no secret that we are partial to fishing, and we couldn’t think of many better ways to celebrate Father’s Day. Whether you’re out in the boat or trying your luck from the docks or the shore, there are plenty of options for you. Our only suggestion is if Dad tells everyone he caught the biggest fish of the day … maybe let him have that one, just for the day.

Catching a Ball Game

Baseball is a time-honored past-time in Charlotte County, and we think it would be a great idea to treat Dad to a ball game. Admittedly, the local Charlotte Stone Crabs won’t be playing a home game until Monday, June 18 when they host the Lakeland Flying Tigers so, if you can put off your celebrations for a few days this would be a great alternative.

Stump Pass State Park

At the end of Manasota Key is the beautiful Stump Pass State Park. If your Dad loves to get outside and enjoy nature, then this is the perfect solution for you. In addition to the secluded beach, Stump Pass features a hiking trail that passes through five distinct natural communities that provide homes for many species of wildlife. While at the park, keep an eye out for manatees, tortoises, egrets, terns, and much more!

Regardless of what you choose to do to celebrate Father’s Day, we hope that you and the whole family have a great day. Happy Father’s Day!
