Teens taking a selfie together

What happens when teens get bored? Well, let’s just say it’s better if they have parent-approved recreational activities to keep them and their friends busy instead of the alternatives.

To put your mind at ease – and to help your kid find fun things to do for teens that aren’t totally lame – we’ve rounded up some great local events for teens.

Activities and things for teens to do are happening all across southeast Michigan.

Interested in adding an upcoming teen-centric Detroit event to this roundup – or to our events calendar?
