Father’s Day Picnic Spots in OC

Father’s Day Picnic Spots in OC

Father’s Day picnic spots! I know. I always recommend taking Father’s Day outdoors. Please don’t limit yourself to this list! It’s just to get the ideas going. Pick somewhere close or go for a road trip. Just get outdoors!

Beaches, kids and Dads are made for each other.  There are playgrounds on the sand at:


Set yourself up to play with views of the shore at:


Go for a nature walk at:


Easy picnic ideas:

  • Read my post about How to Barbecue Near the Beach
  • Bag of baby carrots and some hummus for dipping
  • Pumpernickel pretzels and pub cheese for dipping (TJs)
  • Pineapple spears (Costco)
  • Ready-made salads and sandwiches/wraps from the refrigerator section (TJs)
  • Some vintage sodas or low-cal lemonade (TJs)
  • Foot-long, ready-made sandwiches from the deli case (Ralphs, Albertsons, etc.) usually only $6.99 and feeds everybody.
  • I’ve even seen people have pizza delivered for a picnic! Anything goes!

I love the TJs soft-sided coolers for easy packing.  Don’t forget towels or picnic blankets. (Can you tell I love TJs?)  Happy Father’s Day to all the dads who take their kids out to play all year long!
