While we all know by this point that Mother’s Day originated in Philadelphia, the beginnings of Father’s Day are a little murkier…
But that doesn’t make this day, or your dad, any less recognizable!
We want to help make celebrating that special man that taught you so much a little easier, so we’ve decided to help with your Father’s Day (and Father’s Day gifts) plans! And guess what? All of these spots are SEPTA Perks Partners, so you can use your SEPTA Key to save! Check out some of our ideas.
For the Philly sports fanatic, treat your dad to shirts repping his favorite team. Check out Shibe Sports and Philly Phaithful for more whimsical garb. The old-school-guy might prefer a classic from the Phillies Majestic Clubhouse, Philadelphia 76ers Online Shop, or the Wells Fargo Center - Team Stores.
And speaking of experiential… is Dad more into learning and hands-on kind of fun? Maybe what he wants is a day to be a kid again at the Franklin Institute. If he wants to take in the arts, we’ve got that covered at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, or at a show at the Arden. Maybe he just wants to laugh! We relate to that. If so, treat him to a comedy show at Philly Improv Theater. There are so many great SEPTA Perks in Arts and Entertainment… check out the rest!
If Dad has a sweet tooth, help him indulge with a treat from one of our many Perks Partners that specialize in just that!
Or maybe he’s just a simple kind of man. And in that case, he just wants to sit in the sun, and have a beer at all of the great traveling beer gardens around Philly. In that case, treat him to his first drink; your SEPTA Key gets a $1 off the first drink at any Parks on Tap location! Over Father’s Day Weekend, the park will be at Belmont Plateau.
