From sporting events, to cigars, dad approved restaurants and more, we have rounded up some of our favorites.
We even included activities for the dog dads in your life! So don't worry about a last minute shopping trip to the same old stores to get dad a new tie, we've got you covered!
1. TREAT HIM TO ALL-You-Can-EAt SEATS at a Rangers Game
Since the move to Globe Life Field, the All-You-Can-Eat seats at Texas Rangers baseball games have relocated to left field in the lower concourse, in sections 27-33. The closest entrance to these sections is the the TXU Electricity North Entrance by Texas Live. You'll go down the elevators to the lower concourse and they'll check your ticket one more time when you get down there to make sure you're in the right place, and give you an All-You-Can-Eat wristband. Prices for individual tickets start at $39, and entitle you to free grilled chicken sandwiches, hamburgers, footlong hot dogs, nachos, peanuts, popcorn, and unlimited soft drink refills.

2. Book a Round at Cowboys Golf Club
Etched into Grapevine's rolling hills, Cowboys Golf Club is the first and only NFL-themed golf club in the world, and one of the region's only all-inclusive world-class resort golf properties. The club is open to the public seven days a week for golf, dining, hospitality and private events, ranging from weddings and golf tournaments to corporate outings, fundraising galas, business meetings, holiday parties and other special occasions. Dad will absolutely love grabbing a bite a the Ring of Honor Kitchen at the turn.
3. Treat him to a manly massage
Did you know that most spas offer specific treatments just for men? Pamper dad with a massage, pedicure, scrub or facial this Father’s Day. Some of our favorites are the Adolphus spa which offers a full men’s manicure and pedicure, or the Hotel Crescent Court which has an array of men's services like their Sports Massage. The scrub is designed to increase circulation and purification with body brushing, exfoliation, therapeutic oils and mud. You can also just get him a classic Four Seasons Signature Massage at the Four Seasons in Las Colinas, because sometimes a basic massage is all he needs.

7. Indulge in Texas BBQ at Terry Black’s
Give dad a break from cooking and take him to Terry Blacks in Deep Ellum. This barbecue spot is a Dallas favorite and the perfect spot to spend the afternoon.

If you want a fancier experience where dad can get a bottle of wine and a filet, then grab reservations at Dakota's Steakhouse. The swanky downtown joint is actually hidden underground, making for a really mysterious and cool dining experience. All you’ll see is an elevator, that will take you downstairs below ground level where you’ll find an intimate steakhouse, a bar and a beautifully vibey patio section.

13. Buy him some time at Texas Card house
Reserve dad some time at the new Texas Card House for some poker! To get through the legal loopholes around gambling in Texas, you can pay a membership fee and then pay an hourly or daily rate for a seat at the table. It's also BYOB!

20. go for a tour of at&T Stadium
Take an afternoon to throw the ball on the field or admire the works of art in AT&T Stadium.
