Exclusively Brevard Adventure
Brevard has so much to offer, that it’s easy to plan an exclusively Brevard adventure to share with your dad. Some great options include fishing, surfing, camping, hiking, or kayaking. Any excursion you and your dad can enjoy together is always the right choice. Consider a day of hiking at the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge or an afternoon of kayaking at one of the many beautiful local waterways. If your dad enjoys camping, plan a weekend of camping to enjoy together or with the entire family.
Brevard is known for world class fishing and surfing, as well as any number of watersports, so why not plan a day on or around the water with dad. Your Father’s Day of fishing can happen from the shore of the lake, river, or ocean, or you could hop aboard a deep-sea fishing excursion for the day. You’ll both enjoy telling your share of fish stories from your fishing adventure, especially about the one that got away. If fishing isn’t really your thing, how about a day of surfing. If neither of you know how, it’s the perfect way to learn something new together and enjoy each other’s company and that’s what Father’s Day is all about!
