Spring Break for Teens

It seems like there is always plenty of information available about fun things to do on spring break with kids, but what about your teens?

Sure, they could sleep until noon and then play video games the rest of the day. But Oklahoma City offers tons of activities to get them out enjoying time with family or friends!

Why not make this spring break one they will remember?

Spring Break Weather in OKC

Here in OKC, the spring break weather is unpredictable.

You might need your flip-flops and sunshades. You might need your gloves and earmuffs. You might need your umbrella and rain boots.

And, although a little more rare in March, you just might need your emergency kit and tornado shelter!

No matter the weather, though, there are plenty of things to do in OKC on spring break for teens!

For the sunny days…

Get out on the water with Riversport OKC!

If you’d rather stay dry, you can climb the sky trail, zipline over the river, or try your skills out on the pump track. Make sure to get some time in on the slopes, too (coming Spring 2021)!

Check out all the activities offered at each of their three locations: Boathouse District, Lake Overholser, and Lake Hefner.

Don’t Miss Scissortail Park!

Hop on the OKC Streetcar and ride over to Scissortail Park. This is the newest part of OKC’s Maps 3 project, which is enhancing the quality of life for residents.

At Scissortail Park, you can rent pedal boats, fly a kite, grab lunch from a food truck, play in the water at the spray ground, or hang out at the outdoor skating rink!

It’s also a great place for an impromptu photoshoot among the 40,000 daffodils or on the famous Skydance Bridge.

Drop by the Wheeler District!

You won’t want to miss a photo-op in front of the huge OKC sign with the historic Santa Monica Pier Ferris Wheel in the background!

The ferris wheel won’t be open for rides until after spring break, but it’s still a great instagrammable place to hang out!

Go Wild at the OKC Zoo!

You can never outgrow the zoo! Our teens love it every time we go!

The OKC Zoo is continually upgrading their facilities, and we were so impressed on our last visit.

The habitats are just incredible! Our favorite is Sanctuary Asia.

You can’t miss the Wild Encounters, either. Our teens love feeding the giraffes!

For the cold or rainy days…

Chisholm Creek is the place to be in OKC!

Your teens will love all of the exciting activities and mouthwatering food over on the north side of town. Top Golf, iFly Indoor Skydiving, and Red Door Escape Room will be a special treat for your teens.

Then, the whole family can satisfy the hefty appetites they will have worked up at Uncle Julio’s, Razoo’s, or Birra Birra Craft Pizzeria, and then grab some craft ice cream at Bibi’s.

Just across the highway from Chisholm Creek, Main Event is another great option to spend a fun day inside.

Of course, there are a ton of other places in OKC to find fun things to do on spring break, but we need to save some for ideas for summer!

I know getting your teens out of the house every day during spring break might not be feasible, but choosing a day or two to get out and see your local area is a great way to make some lasting memories!

What are your favorite things to do on spring break in OKC with your teens?

    This looks like a great trip-although I think I will skip the kayaking 🙂 That boat on the canal and the golfing look very promising however!

    • Melissa F Reply

      They have kayaks on the calm Oklahoma River, Lake Overholser, and Lake Hefner, as well. That’s more my speed these days, too! 🙂
