Looking for something fun to do with Dad in #Austin this Sunday for #FathersDay? There are a ton of options in our fair town, so put down that tie and get out there!
Does Dad love to play Pinball and video games? Then take him to Pinballz Arcade (off 183 near Burnet Rd.) or Pinballz Kingdom (in Buda), and give him a bunch of quarters! These indoor arcades are filled with hundred of games from the classic to the brand new, and include pinball and video games. Pinballz Arcade is BYOB and Pinballz Kingdom has three bars and a restaurant.
The Goodnight has food, drink, eight vintage bowling lanes, four custom billiard tables, two table-tennis counts, and shuffleboard, plus two private Karaoke rooms! So basically, no matter what kind of fun Dad wants to get up to, you are covered at the Goodnight in Anderson Village. Keep in mind, the Goodnight is 18 and up all day until 9pm and 21 and over after 9pm.
Speaking of bowling, Dart Bowl is an Austin institution. However, it's not just their lanes that they are famous for, their cafe gets rave reviews, especially for their enchiladas and burgers. So tell Dad to lace up his bowling shoes and beat the heat at Dart Bowl!
Is Dad more the outdoorsy type? How about a hike at the Barton Creek Greenbelt? Word is the Twin Falls are beautiful and the creek is full of water after the recent rains, so now would be the perfect time to enjoy a hike and a swim.
Another outdoor option is to rent a kayak or canoe on Lady Bird Lake. Zilker Boats and the Rowing Dock are two popular options.
