Show dad just how much you love and appreciate him with a fun-filled day of memories and relaxation. For Peoria, AZ families, your June 16th celebration can conveniently include plenty of outdoor activities pop is sure to soak up, as nature and activities abound in all directions.

Water adventures on the lake
A short drive north will land you in Lake Pleasant Regional Park. It’s one of the most scenic water recreation areas in the Valley, and a huge draw for fishing, boating, hiking and camping. It’s a dad’s dream vacation right at your fingertips. Pleasant Harbor is full service, offering rentals of pontoon boats, sail boats, kayaks and paddle boards. For those a little daring, they even offer hydro flying and a giant waterslide. To round out your day, head over to Dillion’s Bayou for award-winning barbeque.

But don’t forget, there’s a whole other marina to the west to explore. At Scorpion Bay you’ll find charters, cruises, and other rentals along with a floating obstacle course called Paqua Park sure to bring laughs to the whole family. Then, refuel with burgers, fresh salads and sandwiches at their floating restaurant, Scorpion Bay Grill, which is also dog friendly.

Happy hiking trails
Just steps outside your Shea neighborhood, a morning hike with dad awaits. Peoria Regional Preserve boasts more than 12 miles of interconnected trails through mountain vistas and acres of saguaros, mesquite and paloverde trees. You can make your walk with dad as leisurely or as briskly as you’d like—a perfect escape to enjoy dad’s time and connect with nature.

It’s tee time on the green
There might be no better way to get to know dad than spending quality time with him on the golf course. And, if you’re lucky enough to live in Peoria, then you’re already surrounded by some of the most scenic destination courses in the state. Just 10 miles from your new Shea home, gorgeous greens await at Trilogy Golf Club at Vistancia Crafted by renowned golf course architect Gary Panks, Trilogy Golf Club welcomes public play and every skill level on this picturesque 18-hole, par 72-championship course.

Venturing out just a little further west, a perfect day on the links with dad could bring you to the Quintero Golf & Country Club. Quintero is award-winning and has been nationally recognized in several golf publications since 2007. Here, the views, experience, and fun would be a day to remember.

Entertainment districts with dad
Just eight miles south from your new Shea community, Peoria Eighty-Three or P83 for short is a one-stop shop for all things entertainment, food and shopping. You could spend the whole day here with dad, and even take in a movie or hit the ice-skating rink. Or you could head a little further south to Westgate, which they call “the district of fun” for another collection of outdoor shopping, incredible dining and entertainment, including Tiger Wood’s new popular putt course called PopStroke.  

Leisurely resort and spa staycation
If slowing way down and relaxing is more dad’s speed, just 4 short miles from your Shea home brings you to the Cibola Vista Resort & Spa. Pamper dad with this tranquil setting, and perhaps a soothing massage. On the menu, a “Men’s Escape” and a gentleman’s facial could be just what he needs. Then, enjoy the Lagoon pool, tasty restaurant eats, and the daily resort activities that highlight the wonders of the desert.
