It’s time to celebrate the men in your life with some fun-filled #VisitWilm adventures! This year, take advantage of the amazing opportunities Greater Wilmington brings and spend a full day with the men who raised, encouraged, and played catch with you throughout the years.

Father’s Day Weekend is filled with Fun and Excitement

Explore Land, Air, and Sea… with Axes Thrown Between


We know Dads want to sit on the couch and watch sports for their Father’s Day fun, but they won’t know what hit them when you explore the exciting special events and attractions throughout Greater Wilmington, Delaware.

Let’s start with Air! Treat Dad to a day filled with transportation as you explore classic cars, motorcycles, and aircrafts at FatherFest presented by the American Helicopter Museum and Education Center. And when you throw in the beer garden, food trucks, and HELICOPTER RIDES sports will become a thing of the past (for the day at least).


Will we SEA you by the River? Wilmington’s Riverfront is filled with adventure. Treat Dad to a round of golf, mini that is, with Riverfront Mini Golf, and maybe even splurge on some ice cream! You can always let him “show you how it’s done” while playing cornhole with a river view at Constitution Yards Beer Garden or let him “teach ya a few things” at the DuPont Environmental Education Center! If Dad needs a more aquatic attraction reserve your spot today to set sail on the Riverboat Queen with a Sunday Brunch Cruise! There really is something for every kind of man at the Riverfront!


If Dad is a True Golf Pro May we Suggest Big Kid Golf!?

Now is the time to Land on something fun for the adults in the family! Release your inner Viking and throw some axes with Greater Wilmington’s Battle Axe. End in a tie and see who really shines by throwing Vader, the attraction’s 2-foot long axe! It may be easier for some to handle than others but it’s always a blast!

If Dad really just wants to enjoy a quiet, relaxing day stop by Hotel DuPont for Father’s Day Brunch featuring carved prime rib or try Father’s Day Dinner at Domaine Hudson with scotch and bourbon flights!

Don’t leave Dad so soon! Turn your day into a weekend-Here’s where to stay!
