Washington State offers a great variety of things to do for people of all ages, teenagers included. There are all sorts of outdoor activities to enjoy, to include whale watching trips, and visits to places like Mount Rainier National Park, Mount St. Helens, and Riverfront Park in Spokane. There are sporting events and museums along the coast. Teens in Seattle can visit the Pike Place Market and the space needle, and we cannot overlook the opportunity for root beer tasting! For teenagers in Washington who are interested in employment, the 5.8% state unemployment rate should not get in the way of their job search.
If you're under 16 years of age, there are specific labor laws in Washington that don't allow you to work for traditional employers.
