tours for teens

I'm gradually getting through the reports for travelling with teens, but havnt come across anyone who took a tour aimed at teens, such as a movie/tv/music etc. I know there is the s** in the city thing but I don't think my 13 and 14 year old boys would enjoy that!!! Any ideas would be great thanks.

they have "as seen on tv" tours they might like...just google "TV tours NYC" also can do the Hip-Hop tour and google for that website as well.

also try The Lower East Side Tenement Museum,they put on a great tour with a teen playing the part of a new immigrant to NYC my son who is resistant to anything with "museum" in the name really ended up enjoying it.

You could also try a "tasting" tour yourself...Pizza,dumpling houses whatever they are into and travel around to the different places eating your way thru NY just pick a few places get the addresses and you can plot it on hopstop.com to make more use of your time.

Go to sceneontv.com click on TV & Movie tours. THey also have one for S** and the City but not appropriate for 13 year olds. The TV and Movie tour takes you to scenes from Friends, Will & Grace, Spiderman etc. THe hipHop city tour might be good. Also most Grayline and Citysights tours are aimed at all ages. They go to places like Empire State Building , Statue of Liberty, Times Square etc. Hope this helps. Also Circle Line has a speed boat tour to the Statue of Liberty your teen might like . It's called the Shark boat tour.

Depending on your dates of travel, your kids might like the Vic Teens events at the New Victory Theater http://www.newvictory.org/victeensMain.m. My kids are still pre-teen so I can't report on them, but judging by everything else I've seen at the theater (which is a lot) it should be great. These are fully chaperoned events, which include a show plus on and/or off-site events, parents not allowed (but you can buy your own tix to the show yourself). I think these sell out quickly.
