THE BAD NEWS
For years, the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio had free admission for dads on Father’s Day. (As long as someone else came along and paid admission.) We went. It was perfect. We were in town anyways for a wedding, so we took advantage of the deal. Canton’s really not far from Pittsburgh, so even if they weren’t running the deal it would have been worth the trip. This year, sadly, they’re nixing the Father’s Day free admission for some father’s day football game training thing you have to pay $25 for. Boo. (Just FYI, kids five and under always get to go for free.)
THE GOOD NEWS
This year the Pittsburgh Zoo has free admission for all fathers as long as they bring their kids along. I think it would be a fun way to spend some family time together, and the free admission would clear up some budget room for showering him with gifts when you get home.
