With Father’s Day just around the corner (June 20), now is the time to start planning how you’ll be celebrating with Dad this year. For many families, the holiday may be their first outing together since COVID-19 restrictions were lifted on June 1, 2021. If you’re still trying to figure out how to make his day special, Things To Do in Las Vegas has got you covered. Check out our top six picks below for things to do for Father’s Day in Las Vegas.
#1: Cash in On These Father’s Day Freebies
Showing your father, partner, or husband how much you appreciate him doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. If you’re a little low on funds but still want to take him out, be sure to cash in on these Father’s Day freebies in Las Vegas.
- Ride the High Roller. The High Roller is offering BOGO free admission to dads on Father’s Day, and kids under the age of six also ride free. Order Dad a drink from the wheelhouse and enjoy a half-hour journey into the sky on the world’s tallest Ferris wheel.
- Visit the Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck. Purchase any full price daytime ticket at the Paris Hotel’s viewing deck, and Dad will get a complimentary ticket to check out the stunning views of the Las Vegas Strip below.
- Rock out at the Fremont Street Experience. Free nightly concerts are back at the Fremont Street Experience! Shows will run from noon on Father’s Day through 1:00 a.m.. Sunday’s lineup includes performances by cover bands Blue String Theory, Spandex Nation, Dez Hoston Band, and more.
- Annual Father’s Day Car Show. You can join Boulder City Cruisin’ at the Nevada State Veterans Home on June 20 starting at 8:00 a.m. for their Annual Father’s Day Car Show to honor our vets.

#2: Take Dad Golfing, Vegas-Style
If you’re looking to treat Dad to a few rounds of golf, there’s no shortage of great golf courses to choose from throughout the Las Vegas Valley. If you’re staying on the Strip this Father’s Day in Las Vegas, Bali Hai Golf Club is just minutes away and features lush tropical greenery, water features, lovely views of the city, and a dynamic course that builds in intensity and drama as you work your way through it. With an onsite restaurant and five-star customer service, Bali Hai is the perfect setting for dads who love the finer things in life.
For something a little different than your typical golf course experience, host your Father’s Day celebration at Topgolf. This four-level venue at MGM Grand offers interactive golf entertainment that’s perfect for the whole family, regardless of skill level. Attentive wait staff will serve you delicious shareables, burgers, and sandwiches, plus all your favorite beer, wine, and spirits. Beat the summer heat in a climate-controlled environment at this unique driving range experience Dad is sure to love.
#3: Give Him the Gift of a Premium Shave
Sometimes dads need a little pampering, too. Give him the shave of a lifetime at the luxurious Art of Shaving. With convenient locations at the Grand Canal Shoppes, Downtown Summerlin, and the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, The Art of Shaving provides high-quality men’s grooming products and services to make him feel appreciated every day of the year.
We recommend the Premium Shave for the ultimate luxury barbershop experience. Master barbers will combine their signature Four Elements of the Perfect Shave with an essential-oil infused Express Facial to cleanse and exfoliate his skin. The treatment wraps up with skin-protecting facial lotion and a premium after-shave mask for a clean, smooth shave.
#4: Treat Him to a Fancy Steak Dinner
When it comes to planning Father’s Day dinner, you can’t go wrong with one of the many renowned steakhouses in Las Vegas—well, unless Dad doesn’t eat meat, in which case we still have some pretty good vegetarian and vegan options. But if a thick juicy steak and a stiff drink fit the bill, stop by the Gordon Biersch Brewery on Sunday to celebrate “Hops for Pops”. This Father’s Day Special includes a 12 ounce Gorgonzola ribeye, choice of two sides, a flight of beer, and a pint of his choice for just $20. (Fancy doesn’t always have to break the bank!)
For the old-school dad, take him to Barry’s Downtown Prime at Fremont Street’s newest hotel, Circa. This restaurant may be new, but the interior is decidedly classic, with decor inspired by the 50s, 60s, and 70s. The vintage feel at Barry’s is enhanced by touches like burnished brass, walnut millwork, deep velvet booths, and of course, old-fashioned hospitality.
Dig in to a 40-ounce Tomahawk ribeye dry-aged for 40 days, dressed in sauces like béarnaise, creamy horseradish, roasted shallot red wine, chimichurri, and Au Poivre. Pair with a classic or signature cocktail, wine, or a drink from their impressive whiskey collection for a night well-spent.
#5: Get His Adrenaline Pumping
Las Vegas offers hundreds of pulse-pounding experiences for adrenaline junkies. From ziplining to skydiving, there are plenty of extreme activities to make this Father’s Day memorable. Head over to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway to Exotics Racing, where he’ll have the opportunity to drive the supercars of his dreams, including a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Mustang, and more around a real 1.2 mile racetrack.
If your dad likes going to the gun range, he’ll love Battlefield Vegas, where he can shoot machine guns, sub machine guns, pistols, grenade launchers, and shotguns, plus the only minigun available to the public in Las Vegas. He’ll also have the chance to crush a car with a tank and get some target practice from the gunner seat of a helicopter.
Speaking of helicopters…did you know that Las Vegas also has some of the most exciting helicopter tours of Lake Mead, the nearby Grand Canyon, Red Rock, and beyond?
#6: Explore the Great Outdoors Together
Las Vegas is essentially a city in the middle of the desert, so temperatures often skyrocket past 100 degrees in June. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t take Dad on a grand outdoor adventure this Father’s Day in Las Vegas—you’ll just want to start your day early and bring plenty of sunscreen and water!
Outdoorsy dads will love spending the day fishing or boating on nearby Lake Mead, just a half hour drive from the Strip. You can even go kayaking through Black Canyon and see the natural beauty mixed with the engineering prowess that created the world-famous Hoover Dam. If the heat gets to be a bit too much, you can always enjoy a leisurely brunch cruise across the lake instead.
