Best Places to Have Fun with Teens & Tweens

by Alison Atyia

When your kids were little, there were story times, play dates and afternoons at the park. Opportunities abounded to get out and explore the world with your little one—but “Mommy & Me” classes just don’t have the same appeal once your child is older.

When it comes to spending quality family time with teens and tweens, it can be more challenging to find fun activities that older kids will love and that families can enjoy together. Knowing the importance of continuing to connect and have fun together, we are pleased to share several local venues in the OKC metro that are perfect for spending time with your teen—and may even earn you a “Coolest Mom Ever” award.
