From teaching you how to ride the ocean’s waves to grilling the best summer barbeque, there’s nowhere dads thrive more than at the beach. Keep the holiday weekend simple with a 3-night mini-cation in New Smyrna Beach. Play frisbee on the beach, drink beers at the local brewery, and spend the June weekend celebrating Dad in NSB. Add our favorite Father’s Day activities to your list of things to do and surprise him with a memorable weekend.

Book a Surf Sesh


If you inherited your adventurous side from your dad, reserve a couple boards for a Father’s Day surf session. New Smyrna Beach is known to be Florida’s surfing hub as the inlet has the best waves to ride. If you and your family are still getting the hang of it, we recommend surfing further south where the waves are milder.

You can pick up a board and wax at either Nichols Surf Shop or Red Dog Surf Shop. If you need a Father’s Day gift idea, we recommend a private 2-hour surfing lesson with Nichols Surf Shop.

Cruise Around in a Private Boat


Good music and a boat day are a perfect Father’s Day pairing. Make Dad captain for the day with a private boat from Sanddollar Boat Rentals. From pontoons to bowriders, choose one that suits your group and spend a summer afternoon cruising New Smyrna’s intercoastal waters. NSB has plenty of riverfront restaurants where you can dock the boat and celebrate with a Father’s Day lunch.

If everyone wants to take a swimming break, head to NSB’s Disappearing Island; a sandbar that only exists at low tide. Boat over to Ponce Inlet and you may find it!

Grab a Beer


While beer may be a Father’s Day cliché, there’s nothing like cracking a cold one on a hot summer day. If your dad wants nothing more than a good IPA for Father’s Day, take him right to the source at New Smyrna Beach Brewery. This hang-out spot proudly serves locally brewed beer on tap. We recommend ordering a flight so you can try more. If your dad loves the science behind the brew, check out their taproom where the magic is made.

Stay In for Game and Movie Night

One of the best parts about being a father is simply having fun with family. Bring out the board games and brace yourself for a night of cheesy dad jokes.
