It’s almost Father’s Day, and dad deserves to be recognized in Vegas style, with candy, a shave, a cigar or a chance to get his adrenaline pumping. Many Las Vegas attractions, stores and spas are offering specials for dad’s big day.

Sugar Daddies
Dad will feel like a kid again with a sweet vintage gift basket from Sugar Factory at the Miracle Mile Shops inside Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Priced at $65, the “Priceless Pops Basket”  is full of classic treats such as Sugar Daddy, Big League Chew, Chocolate Cigars, Hubba Bubba Bubble Tape, Big Hunk and Mambas.

Lather your father
From June 13 to 20, you can treat dad to a 40-minute Gentleman’s Manicure and Pedicure at Spa & Salon Bellagio for $100. Dads will also love the spa’s $45 Fit for a King, featuring a private spa room with a television and music, all while being treated to an exclusive aromatherapy skin treatment, facial massage and Royal Shave.

Platinum’s WELL Spa, meanwhile, is treating dads to a  Men’s Facial for $76 (a 20 percent savings) throughout June.

Pairings for Pop
Dad can kick back and celebrate his day with the perfect pairing of a cocktail and cigar for just $20 at Rhumbar in the Mirage. Cigars include the Padron 3000 and cocktails include the Latin Manhattan, made with Cruzan Single Barrel Rum, Caribbean spices, lime, falernum liqueur, a dash of bitters and a splash of Jamaican ginger beer.

Rock out
Let dad unleash his inner rocker with a trip to Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp. Give him the opportunity to jam at a fully loaded complex with real rock stars during Rock Star for a Day or on stage at the MGM Grand during Fantasy Camp. Whether dad’s a rockin’ drummer or specializes in air guitar, there’s a camp and program for him, beginning at just $299!

Sky’s the Limit
Extreme dads can take to the sky this Father’s Day for the fighter pilot thrill ride of a lifetime at Las Vegas’ Sky Combat Ace.

Surprise dad with a popular Afterburner package, offered at an exclusive Father’s Day rate of $299. Dad will fly with a trained fighter pilot, doing loops, rolls, stalls, hammerheads, spins, snap rolls and tumbling in either an Extra 330LC or Waco Classic YMF-5C open cockpit biplane. The package starts with 15 minutes of training, then it’s time to fly. The entire experience lasts about two hours.

The Afterburner package must be booked by the end of June to receive the Father’s Day offer (the package is redeemable through December 2013). Call (888) 494-5850 for more information.

Dad vs. Dunes
Send dad out to the Nellis Dunes for  some sandy action in a custom-made dune buggy on the Vegas Mini Baja Chase. Dad will race through the desert at top speeds and enjoy the adrenaline rush of a lifetime. Learn more about the Mini Baja Chase and more Vegas thrill rides here.

Dad in the driver’s seat
Put dad behind the wheel of an exotic supercar (Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches, etc.) on a real 1.2 mile-racetrack at Exotics Racing, located in the Las Vegas Motor Speedway complex.

Purchase any five-lap package gift certificate (or greater) for dad from Exotics Racing through June 30, and he receives a free T-shirt. Click here for more information.

If your dad would rather drive at a leisurely pace and enjoy beautiful scenery, give him an adventure with World Class Driving.

Dad can drive hot rods (Shelby GT500, Corvette Z06 and Dodge Challenger SRT8) or exotic cars (Ferrari 458 Italia, Audi R8 V10, Jaguar XKR8 and Lamborghini LP560) through Red Rock Canyon — and you can ride along; any purchased driving experience on Father’s Day will come with a free passenger ride (normally priced at $99).

Hit the Gym
Dad can burn some calories from his scrumptious Father’s Day brunch with Shine Alternative Fitness’ exclusive Father’s Day gift package. Choose from five adrenaline-charged X-treme Boxing classes priced at $50.

Classes offer a combination of jumping, aerobics, toning and conditioning for a total body workout under the instruction of renowned boxer, Victoria Gusto. While the package must be purchased by June 16, dad has three months to use it.

Forget the tie
If you prefer to give dad something wrapped up in a box for Father’s Day, Las Vegas offers plenty of unique options for you to buy something he’ll never forget.

If dad has expensive taste, head to Crystals at CityCenter. Dapper dads can spruce up any suit with a pair of Harry Winston Ocean Cufflinks, created in 18kt rose gold with a black dial. He’ll never be late for a flight with H.Stern’s Sapphire Watch, made with a titanium band. Tech savvy dads will love Porsche Design’s Smartphone — it’s fully hand wrapped in genuine leather with a milled stainless steel frame, and features an internal memory of 8 GB, touch screen, Bluetooth and more. Dad can protect his iPad with Saint Laurent’s black leather case from its Men’s Summer 2013 collection.

Tipsy Totes, 1039 S. Main, in downtown Las Vegas puts an artsy twist on Father’s Day. The Las Vegas-based designer of high-end wine and spirits carriers offers handcrafted gift card holders and whimsical wine and bottle carriers and more. To further celebrate Father’s Day, customers who purchase any item prior to Sunday, June 16 will receive a free small golf towel.

Yes, I’m from Las Vegas. But I’d like to clarify a few things: I don’t live in a hotel and I’m not a showgirl. I put my pasties on one nipple at a time, just like everyone else. I’m a regular girl who plunges off the side of ridiculously tall Las Vegas landmarks and writes about it for a living. I also ride roller coasters, hang at the spa, shoot holes in zombies and take art lessons from bottlenose dolphins. You know, normal stuff. My career as a journalist and copywriter has led me out of Vegas and around the world, but the 24/7 normality of Las Vegas sucks me back in every time. Am I oblivious to the plethora of slot machines everywhere I go? Sure. But that’s because I’m distracted by all the pretty lights. Follow me on Google+ and Twitter.
