Must do activities with teens

Hello. I just booked a trip for Spring Break with my children (18 & 19). This will be our first visit to the island and I am looking for suggestions on things to do and places to eat. Thank you!

Definitely book a snorkeling tour.. We use Island Vibes.

My kids love to jet ski with Sun&Fun, horseback ride with Provo Ponies, parasail with Captain Marvins or Island Vibes, Thursday Fish Fry at Bight Park.

Fun places to eat - Da Conch Shack, Danny Bouys, Somewhere, Ricky Flamingos, BBQ, one at Somerset on Tuesdays with a fire dancer and DJ, and the other at Seven Stars with live music on Sundays.

We all have our favorites. Some of mine are.

Magnolia $$$$

Bella Luna $$$

Le Bouchon $$$$$

Hemmingways $$

Tiki Hut $$

Tour Turks Head Brewery and sample the beers

Visit the Where When How Magazine for more dining options. http://www.wherewhenhow.com

I am sure others will chime in as well

We just got back last week with my 19 and 21 year olds. Their favorite activities were Parasailing off Grace Bay, snorkeling Bight Reef, the music/general energy at the Thursday Fish Fry, kayaking in Chalk Sound.

The drinking age is 18 and they liked being able to walk up and buy a drink at the Fish Fry.

My teen were 17 and 15 when we went. We did a half day snorkeling tour with Island Vibes, which was great. We also did parasailing, which was fun. We stayed at OCW, so there were kayaks and paddleboards that guests can use.

S.leader - I will be heading there in April with two teens who want to kayak (they are pretty experienced) Did you just rent them yourself or take a tour?

We stayed at a villa on the sound that had a pair but there are rentals at Las Brisas and Sapodilla Bay Beach on that side.

I'd taken my 18 y/o daughter for her 1st gaming experience with some sampling of adult beverages @ the Casablanca Casino. You can do that legally on the Island @ 18. Dr. Jim
