Just like you, Dad’s probably been through a lot lately. He deserves a day to treat himself. What does he like—golf, cars, booze, thrills? Here in Las Vegas, you can check all those things off your list. So, here’s to making this year’s Father’s Day unforgettable for more reasons than the coronavirus pandemic.

Hell’s Kitchen

Modeled after Gordon Ramsay’s hit television show, this restaurant also delivers all of Ramsay’s culinary hits, such as scallops, beef Wellington and sticky toffee pudding. But if Dad is eyeing something even meatier, the New York strip’s a fine option. (Caesars Palace, 702.731.7373)

Range 702

If you and Dad are harboring some sore feelings since quarantine, get ready to blow up that anger. Choose from several adrenaline-pumping experiences, such as the Black Ops Package, where you can fire rounds from an MP5, M4, SAW and Glock. (5999 Dean Martin Drive, 702.425.5312)

Sky Jump

Sky Jump


Is Dad feeling dangerous? At SkyJump, he can channel his inner action hero by jumping from 829 feet above the Strip. The controlled descent can reach speeds up to 40 mph, too, so tell him to bring a change of underwear. (The STRAT, 800.998.6937)

The Big Apple Coaster

Make Dad feel like a kid again by riding this classic roller coaster, which spirals, loops and twists around the faux-Manhattan skyline. Dad might be a little jittery when the ride’s over, but he won’t be able to shake off his smile. (New York-New York, 702.740.6616)

Vista Cocktail Lounge

Even if Dad is too manly for fancy cocktails, this sleek lounge might change his mind. Let him try the Pear Fizz, a blend of Grey Goose la poire vodka, St-Germain, lime, egg white and soda. If he doesn’t budge, classic cocktails like an Old-Fashioned will suit him just fine. (Caesars Palace, 702.731.7852)

Fashion Show

Does Daddy need a new pair of shoes? Whatever he desires, buy him something nice. Between Banana Republic, Foot Locker, Apple and more, he should be able to find some clothes or gadgets that he likes. (3200 Las Vegas Blvd. S., 702.784.7000)

Bali Hai Golf Club

Remember tea time with Dad? Well, now it’s tee time. Enjoy some sun, fresh air and a relaxing round of golf. He’ll also love the course’s lush landscape and its incredible views of the city. (5160 Las Vegas Blvd. S., 888.427.6678)

Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens

Is Dad searching for serenity? He’ll find a little at the Conservatory’s latest installation, Japan Journey: Magic of Kansai, which is inspired by a Japanese spring garden. And not only will you see beautiful flowers, plants and trees, you’ll be witnessing a work of art. (Bellagio, 702.693.7111)

Speed Vegas

Speed Vegas


Dad could only afford a used Dodge Stratus because he was graciously taking care of you. Return the favor by buying him a few laps in his dream car, like a Lamborghini Hurácan, or let him ride off-road in a Baja race truck. (14200 Las Vegas Blvd. S., 702.789.0568)
