Entertainment - for teenagers!

What's a teen to do on the weekends?



When I was a teen - especially before I had my drivers license, my friends and I had a hard time figuring out what to do on weekends. We felt there was a limited amount of fun to be had. Here were the choices:
Go to a movie
Go bowling
Go eat
Go to the beach (only in summer - we live in Chicago)
Hang out at someone's house (which was usually Wendi's house because she had a kitchen that was carpeted - great to sit, eat, and hang out)
When hanging out with friends, we did the bowling/movie thing a lot. But when I got a boyfriend, life changed. Now to be added was trying to find a place we could be alone, just the two of us. Insert drive-in movie theatre. Those killed two birds with one stone...seeing a movie and being alone. The movie theatre by my house closed down and I don't even know where one is anymore.
I forgot to mention Great America, the adventure park near where I lived. It would have been great to go there, except I'm afraid of roller coasters. In fact, I think I'd pass out if I went on one.
For teens out there, what unique activities can you come up with for entertainment? With friends and with dates?
Let's help our teen readers figure out what to do!

My daughter, a screen arts major at an arts school, has been making movies with her friends in her spare time this summer. (Pretty easy these days, what with camcorders and macbooks!) Their creativity never ceases to amaze me!

Teens around here (UT) go skiing or snowboarding a lot. They can get pretty good deals on season passes. If they can't drive yet, they just have someone drop them off at the resort and pick them up later on. In the summer, there's always the beach (lake, not ocean) and camping.

Do parents let kids go camping without supervision? My parents would never let me go camping, except in our backyard.

Simone,
I used to go camping with my friends, but I was older, like 17 or 18. And yes, the backyard (or even driveway when your parents had a pop-up tent trailer) worked great! :)

The best summer activity is reading!!! And if anyone wants some suggestions for books, I know some really talented authors who have some great books out...

Reading at the beach or pool is best, BTW. :) Or... when I lived in Utah, we used to head up to the canyon and lay out (reading!) or go tubing down the river (um, not reading...)
