15 Fun Places to Take Tweens and Teens this Summer in Memphis, Tennessee

A couple weeks ago, I kept my nephews for some of the week. We had a fun, full house with 5 kids, and I was so excited to explore all the fun things to do in Memphis! One of my nephews is 12, and the other is 15. That’s when it dawned on me – what the heck do teenager boys like to do lol?! I can only take them to the pool so much. That’s when I enlisted some friends to help give me their best recommendations. And today, I’m sharing them with you!

These are my top 15 things to do for teens and tweens. I had ages 3, 6, 9, 12 and 15. I always know exactly where to take my kids, but I have to say, it was so fun exploring some options for a little older kids! Even Leighton loved them! Keep reading for my top 15 list of best places to take your teens and tweens for fun in Memphis,

Dave & Buster’s – Arcade, ping pong, air hockey, pool, virtual reality games and food. This place is perfect not only for tweens and teens, but the adults will love it too!

Nerd Alert – If you love old school arcade games, then Nerd Alert is for you! It’s at Carriage Crossing. Grab pizza at Milano’s or food at Nashoba afterwards.

Jupiter Comics & Collectibles – Go-carts, bounce houses, miniature golf, comics, an arcade, mining, diggers, paintball, archery and food. They seriously have so much whether you have little children or older children.

Top Golf – Golf and food, and it’s so much fun for the adults too!

Amuse – Amuse is an adventure museum, and I’ve heard such good things about it. You can do different challenges and adventures, and I think it would be fun for the entire family.

High Point Rock Climbing – For the littles and for the older kids, this is such a fun way to spend the day!

Go Ape Memphis – We love ziplining, and here they have a fun obstacle course too. You can even add on items like miniature golf and axe throwing. It is such a fun way to spend the day!
