There’s no man in any woman’s life quite like her father. Chances are, he taught you how to ride a bike, experience (or endured) your first permit drive, and scared your first boyfriend half to death. He protected you and loved you, and his strength and demeanor left you hopeful to one day find a man even half as respectful as he.
Your dad did it all. So this Father’s Day, give him a memory he’ll never forget.
1. “Father Time” Spa Special at the Spa at Camelback Inn
Let dad start his special day with a men’s herbal body wrap, said to induce relaxation and draw out impurities. Next up, a 6o-minute Swedish massage to soothe his muscle and melt the stress away. Included in the package, he will be afforded access to the spa, which includes the outdoor lap pool, whirlpools, Turkish Steam Bath, solariums, Finnish saunas, relaxation lounges, a fitness center, exercise classes and more. This 90-minute package is available June 1 – 30 for $155.
2. Tee Off With Dad at JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort
This Father’s Day dad won’t have to golf alone because the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort is letting all dads play free when accompanied by a family member who has purchased a round. Enjoy the views of the Mcdowell Mountains, Camelback Mountain and Piestewa Peak on either of the two world-class courses. The Faldo Course, designed by three-time Masters and three-time British Open champ Nick Faldo, features 6,846 yards, generous fairways and ample landing areas for the not-so-straight and narrow golf swing. The second course, the par-72 Palmer Signature Course, designed by Arnold Palmer himself is 7,145 yards, tucked in the rugged Sonoran desert, and offers five different tee markers to allow guests to test their game and improve their range.
3. Buy Dad a Drink at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa
Ditch the traditional Father’s Day tie and get your dad a drink on his special day. Take him to The Scotch Library for the “Drams for Dads” scotch tasting event or the Father’s Day Beer Brunch at Nellie Cashman’s Monday Club Café.
The $60 “Drams for Dads” event on June 19 at 6 p.m. will feature a tasting of four Glenmorangie whiskies and guests will learn about the differences between the labels, unique aspects of the whisky regions of Scotland and explore different ways to drink Scotch. Dads who bring in an old tie can trade it for a special good bag featuring The Scotch Library’s exclusive customized Scotch glass, a cigar and a cigar cutter.
The Father’s Day Beer Brunch offers a variety of beer-infused dishes and is set at $37 per adult and $12 for children 5 to 12. For more information, call 480-624-1202.
4. Cruise In An Infiniti for a Weekend With a Stay at the Phoenician
