Growing up in a small town is hard. We've heard from plenty of teens and parents alike that there is nothing for teenagers to do in Texarkana. That's why we've created our Teen Spot Map to showcase all the great activities that kids and their families can do right here in the Ark-La-Tex!

To make use of our map, just click on the icons to see what kind of awesome places there are to visit right here at home. Each icon will give you a brief description of the venue and a link to a longer feature article we've written about it. That should help everyone generate some weekend family fun!

The map will continue to grow as we discover new places, events and activities the family will want to know about, so check back often. Have we missed something? Send me your tips at and we'll get all the latest information about your suggestion, then place it on the map too.
