All About Dad

There is nothing quite like a day out with Dad. Whether you are looking for high-speed action or a more leisurely pace, here are a few ideas for quality time together in and around Hamilton County.



  1. Put Dad in the driver’s seat at K1 Speed in Fishers. This is not your typical go-kart experience. Dad will delight in this world-class entertainment venue filled with authentic racing memorabilia, plasma screen TVs and leather couches. And forget those noxious fumes typically associated with go-karts. K1’s electric karts offer a smoother, faster ride for novice and veteran go-kart enthusiasts alike.

  3. Indulge Dad’s inner child at Ben & Ari’s in Fishers. With two designer miniature golf courses, two lanes of mini pin bowling and a massive arcade, this is the perfect place to spend a day. And when you need a little break from all the fun, stop in at the on-site cafe for a hearty helping of pizza and wings.

  5. Set adrift with Dad at the White River Canoe Company in Noblesville. Whether you prefer a leisurely float down the White River on an inner tube or a more adventurous full-day canoe trip, White River Canoe Company has you covered. They take care of the details, including transportation to designated drop-in sites, tips for navigating the river safely and help launching your kayak/canoe, so that you can focus on enjoying the ride.

  7. Hit the links with Dad at Shortee’s Golfon Indy’s far north side.Beginner and experienced golfers will feel right at home at Shortee’s. Hit a bucket of balls at the netted driving range, play a round at the 18-hole pitch and putt golf course or try out foot golf – the latest craze that merges soccer and golf on a modified 9-hole course. With reasonable rates (a traditional 9-hole round of golf is just $8 for adults and $7 for kids 12 and under), this is a fun and inexpensive way to golf together.

  9. Take Dad to see the Indianapolis Indians downtown. Summer just isn’t summer without a trip to the ballpark, and a visit to Victory Field is always entertaining. Take advantage of special deals like Two-for-One Tuesdays and Kids Eat Free Sundays to get more bang for your buck. Speaking of bang, Fireworks Fridays make a trip to game extra special.

So grab Dad and make a day of it! With so much to do close to home, there’s no shortage of “dad friendly” fun for everyone.
