7 Spring Activities for Bored (and Broke) Teenagers

By Evie Dunn

Finding things to do can already be pretty difficult, let alone in Prescott. Here’s a list of 7 activities you can do to stay entertained for less than too much money.

7. Warm Weather Appreciation

The weather is getting better, so what’s a better way to admire it than to go outdoors? Appreciate the Spring weather by going mountain biking, hiking, or having a picnic with your friends.

6. Off-Road Rampage

Speaking of going outdoors, Prescott is holding their 10th annual Whiskey Row Off-Road Bike Race. Join the off-roaders of the county from the 26th to the 28th as you race to the finish in one of the most entertaining ways possible for a $40,000 cash purse.

5. Whiskey Row Marathon

Whiskey Row is holding their 35th Annual Marathon at the courthouse square in Prescott. Registration closes May 1st, so make sure to get your registration in by then. More information about the event can be found at www.whiskeyrowmarathon.com

4. Karaoke Night

If you’re really bored, check out Buffalo Wild Wings in Prescott valley and have some fun singing karaoke. Karaoke is held every Wednesday from 8 to midnight. If you want something closer in Prescott, check out Applebee’s on Saturday nights starting at 9:00 PM.

3. First-Impressions

If you’re really really bored, here are some creative things you can do just to get a reaction from strangers:

Get blue Gatorade. Fill up a Windex bottle with it. Drink in public.

Get vanilla pudding. Put it in an empty mayonnaise jar. Eat in public.

Go to McDonald’s. Ask for directions to Burger King. You get the idea.

2. Free Entertainment

Go to one of the numerous live music showings in Prescott/PV. You can go to http://poprocketpress.com/main.asp?SectionID=13 or simply google “live music in Prescott AZ” to find the dates for the nearest showing.
