Recreation, outdoor retailers, and delicious food make Bellevue an excellent place to celebrate the father(s) and caregivers in your life. You can spend time bonding while hitting the back nine or reminisce over their favorite meal, but whatever you decide to do, it will be special in Bellevue. We’ve put together some great options for celebrating Father’s Day in Bellevue.
Father’s Day Outing
Switch it up this year and take Pop on an outdoor excursion. Bellevue has access to wonderful outdoor activities to enjoy this Father’s Day, which most fathers are sure to enjoy.
Some fathers aren’t much for chatting and they connect best in silence on the open green. Bellevue is home to the stunning Golf Club at Newcastle, where visitors can play golf while gazing out to Lake Washington. This golf course is loved for its gorgeous grounds, delicious restaurant, and impressive pro shop. If golf is your dad’s favorite pastime, spending your Father’s Day at the Golf Club at Newcastle is highly recommended.
Is your dad itching to try something new this Father’s Day? If they are a bit of a thrill-seeker, make your way to Edgeworks Climbing + Fitness for an introductory rock-climbing course. This is a great opportunity to test your strength and learn something new with your father figure. This one course could lead to a new hobby in the future you can share together.
A hike through one of Bellevue’s many hiking trails is a fun and affordable way to enjoy Father’s Day. Bridle Trails State Park is between Bellevue and Kirkland, and is a favorite for local hikes due to its well maintained trails. Visitors can view the horse show grounds to catch a glimpse of the beautiful horses. This option is perfect if you want to stretch your legs, enjoy nature, and keep things low-key this Father’s Day.
Go on a shopping spree
Let’s face it- when thinking about Father’s Day gifts, a new set of grilling tools probably comes to mind. Not that that’s not an awesome gift, but a new set of hiking poles or a tailored blazer might just be what they really want. Whether your father is a gear head or dapper dad, Bellevue has amazing shopping to get them exactly what they really want.
To help you find the perfect gift, The Bellevue Collection put together a Father’s Day gift guide and a list of Bellevue Collection partners celebrating Father’s Day. Before you head out on your father’s day adventure, be sure to swing by the Bellevue Collection to get them outfitted and geared up.
