During a family vacation to Newport, Rhode Island, we visited two car museums.  For my husband and two boys, the car museums ended up being the highlight of our trip.  Shockingly, they weren’t as excited as I was to visit the Newport Mansions!  Lol…

If you research the area where you live, you might be able to find a car museum or event near by…Or you could plan a road trip!  Even if you don’t visit the museum on Father’s Day, you can buy your Dad a ticket for a future date!

  1. We’ve been to that exact same car museum and loved it! (Well, my younger two boys are not into cars and were less than impressed but the rest of us enjoyed it). My husband almost always picks fishing on father’s day. We pack lunches and load up kayaks and make the day of it that way.

  2. Great idea Shelley. I know some men would love the car museum. We enjoy kayaking in Kauai and zip lining. Happy Sunday. I am happy to feature this sweet post at Love Your Creativity.

    1. Thanks so much for the feature! What a nice surprise! And kayaking in Kauai sounds amazing!
