Any parent of teenagers will know how difficult it is to keep them entertained during the summer months. With Sixth Form breaking up until September soon, it’s imperative as a parent to consider them when planning days and weekends away. While they may claim to be happy chilling in their bedroom for six weeks playing video games and chatting to their mates, they’re bound to appreciate some time away – especially if the activities are based around them. Perhaps ask them to invite their BFFs too, so that they can socialize without being stifled by their mum and dad.
Enjoy a weekend in Liverpool with good deals with Travelodge and you will have access to a plethora of fun-filled activities that would be perfect for your teens. With the abundance of attractions in Liverpool, you can cram as much or as little into your days away – just make sure you don’t cramp their style and plan your itinerary around them to stay in their good books.
The great thing about travelling with teens is that you can leave them to their own devices for at least part of the break if you wish to. While you wander around the dazzling museums scattered around the Albert Docks, your teens could head for the Liverpool ONE shopping center to spend their hard earned savings. Organize a time to meet up with them, grab a late lunch and head off for the evening together.
Luckily, Liverpool is jam-packed with activities that are perfect for the energetic teen. Take a look at these fantastic options that will make them realize that lazing around in their room all day isn’t everything.
Situated in Knowsley, Aerial Extreme provides a fab day out for all the family, as you navigate your way around a high ropes course elevated above the ground. Fight your fear of heights and get to grips with zip wires, cargo nets and obstacle courses as you try to get to the end in one piece.
Perfect if you’re travelling with footie mad lads, Liverpool is extremely proud of its football heritage, with world class teams, Everton and Liverpool FC being found in the city. Stadium tours are a great way to while away the afternoon, while if you coincide your visit with a match, you and your teens will have an electric experience.
While this may not be an activity to do during a family trip to the city, it’s a great idea to suggest to your teens to keep them occupied for a day with their mates – perfect for a summer birthday, perhaps!
Ideal if your teens love an adrenaline rush, book them in for a kitesurfing lesson on Aindale Beach with Airforce. They don’t need to pack any kit either – it’ll all be there on the day. All your teens have to do is turn up! Have a go as well if you fancy it!
Whatever you decide to do during your trip to Liverpool, you can guarantee you won’t be disappointed. From culture to food, shopping to live music, there’s something for everyone, including angst-ridden teens.
