If you’re a father with one or more daughters, you may have experienced the scenario where what you would like to be doing is very different from your daughters’ idea of a good time. Of course, making gender assumptions such as girls love shopping and men don’t, or men like sports and women don’t, is outdated and offensive. However, it is true to say there are fewer activities dads can share with their daughters that you will both enjoy. It is particularly true as your girls get older. When they are small, they’ll be happy to join in with whatever their parents get up to, but as time passes you might be grateful for a few good vacation ideas you can all enjoy.
This is perfect for dads and daughters, as even children who aren’t very interested in sports enjoy the feeling of being on skis – or maybe a snowboard. If your daughters are into fashion and the media, they will view skiing as a very desirable pastime, and ski resorts are seen as some of the most aspirational places to visit. Luckily there is no shortage of fashionable resorts all across the United States, so you won’t have to splash out on a trip to the European Alps to enjoy a luxury winter break! Colorado and Utah are hotspots for ski resorts, and of course, Canada has some of the best mountains in the world. For the ultimate in convenience, you could stay in one of the Whistler ski in ski out rentals, saving yourselves the hassle of walking down to the ski lift in the morning and trudging back home each night.
These could be an ocean or river cruise, or simply a tour around a lake, but whichever option you choose you will all have activities to keep you happy. The scenery is bound to be spectacular if you or your girls want to relax and watch the world go by, or do a spot of sunbathing. You’ll have restaurants on board for mealtimes, and on larger ships, there will be a range of activities and facilities to entertain all different tastes. Some boats will have spas and beauty parlors, so if your daughters prefer the idea of a pamper session to taking in the view, they won’t get bored. It’s also a perfect opportunity to just chill out together, have a chat and a laugh, and spend time being in each other’s company without the need to rush off somewhere else as there so often is in everyday life.
You might have a daughter who shares your passion for science fiction and would like nothing better than to spend her vacation at Comic-Con with you. Or you might have girls who enjoy going hunting and are happy to head off into the woods in their camouflage and orange vests. Fathers and daughters have a wide variety of relationships and connections, and the most important thing is to find the place where you will both be happy and enjoy being together.
