It is hard to know where to start when it comes to all of the opportunities for teenagers to keep busy in the state of Massachusetts. Teenagers can visit Battleship Cove, spend time in the Berkshires, bike to Cape Cod beaches, try zip lining and even attempt a ropes course! Massachusetts teens can visit an indoor waterpark, attend sporting events and access all sorts of shopping and dining. Some teenagers, however, may choose to spend some of their leisure time gaining work experience. With a 4.2% unemployment rate in the state, there is opportunity for teenagers to get in the door of a workplace.
