It’s that time of year again! FATHER’S DAY, but don't worry, we’ve got you covered! We know that question of what to buy dad for father’s day is hard ENOUGH, but figuring out what TO DO for dad is even more difficult. Fear not, we have the absolute perfect activities to entertain dad and the in-laws. Here are 10 GREAT places to go for Father’s Day in and around the beautiful town of Jupiter, FL!
1. LIGHTHOUSE COVE ADVENTURE GOLF
Terrible at golf? NO WORRIES. Mini golf is the perfect fit for you! Lighthouse Cove in Jupiter offers two fun courses: Paradise Falls and Lost Lagoon, both containing 18 adventurous holes with wheelchair and stroller accessibility! If the family worked up an appetite after a great round, do not worry! Lighthouse Cove has a full restaurant, Burger Shack, along with an ice cream shop, 3 Scoops, right next door! And of course for the adults recovering after a long round, a full wine and beer menu is available just around the 18th hole. Lighthouse Cove is open from 11am to 11pm, 7 days a week, so there is no hassle trying to pick out a day or time of the week to go.
2. CINEPOLIS LUXURY CINEMAS JUPITER
Tired of sharing awkward elbow room with your neighbor? Yeah, we are too. Luckily, Cinepolis is not your average movie theater. Cinepolis in Jupiter offers many services that only enhance a movie-goer's experience! For a little extra money, there is the option to view your movie in the VIP section that includes: your own SERVER, a RECLINER so comfortable you have to keep yourself from falling asleep in it, and not to forget, a full food and drink menu! Hello, is this the White House or what!? Waiting in line for popcorn and trying to find seats are now ancient problems thanks to reserved seating and servers. BUT, if you are looking to save a few dollars, Cinepolis does offer a "traditional" side where customers have to wait in line to order their food and drinks, and the seats are not as lavish. However, there is still reserved seating with each ticket purchased having a specific seat number so the whole family is guaranteed to sit together. Get your tickets online to reserve your seats now! Considering the amount of rain South Florida has over the summer, Cinepolis would be a perfect indoor destination for a family to spend quality time together!
3. BOWLERO JUPITER
Bowlero, the new and improved bowling alley in Jupiter, is another great destination for Father's Day. Again, Bowlero goes beyond your average family bowling experience. Besides having 60 lanes for bowling, Bowlero offers a full blown arcade, corn hole, multiple pool tables, and even beer pong! And don’t worry, instead of your average plastic chairs for lounging upon during bowling, Bowlero supplies luxurious couches for their guests! For our nightlife dads- black-light lines are turned on and popular music is blasted! There is no better place in Jupiter, FL that can accommodate such a wide range of ages, with an immense amount of fun!
4. DUNE DOG CAFE
There cannot be a list of places to go in Jupiter without listing a Jupiter classic, Dune Dog restaurant. Dune Dog has been situated in Jupiter, FL since 1994 and is known for their "crowd-pleasing" food, island atmosphere, and local vibes!

9. JUPITER DUNES GOLF CLUB
If your fam is a little too “pro” for mini-golf, Jupiter Dunes Golf Club might be the perfect outing for you. If Dad likes to golf, and maybe the rest of the family isn’t too great, this public course is a great spot. It features waterfront views, and the entire course is par-3! So it’s a perfect location to learn how to play, or better your skills, with each hole ranging in distance from 70 to 178 yards. There are 18 holes and no tee times, so it’s first come, first-served.
