When looking at local social media pages for not only Kilgore, but all over East Texas one of the biggest complaints you will see is there doesn't seem to be enough fun activities for kids or teenagers. Let's be honest, when kids are bored it's much easier for them to find something to get them in trouble. Or at least that was my experience growing up. But when I saw a group of locals on a Kilgore social media group talking about this very subject I wanted to pass along the suggestions.

Before you look at all the suggestions below remember that some of these ideas are coming from keyboard comedians. These people answer the question trying to get a laugh, so please don't take all of these suggestions as fun ideas because they could get you in trouble with the law.
