    As the title says, my boyfriend is studying abroad and his little sister, 16 almost 17, is coming to visit me. What do I take her to do besides shopping??? :confused: I live in Leamington Spa, I could take her to Birmingham but that's still shopping?! LOL. Any ideas/stories from experience? :P Thanks!

    She's 16 so she will probably spend a lot of time just doing her thing like listening to music, browsing online. But you could bake stuff with her and maybe do some sort of project like make up your own drama show or something on youtube.

    Bring her to Birmingham, its so cool here! Aside all the chavs, of which there are many - and stupid Nationalists spouting racist jokes but apparently not being racist.

    Bring her down the gym for a beasting if you like, she will be to tired to do owt else and you can go on as normal.

    Take her to a museum? Or a quiet pub to meet some of your/your boyfriend's friends?

    Making cakes? :s: She's sixteen, not five.

    I dare say she won't expect to be entertained every minute of the day. Do whatever you usually do, maybe go to the cinema or rent some films? There's nothing wrong with shopping, or look up touristy stuff if she's never been to that area of the country before.

    Just think of the kind of things you did when you were 16. Now, do those things with her. Job done.

    Take her to the student union (do they have a café or activities on in the day if you can't/don't want to take her at night?).

    I agree take her to the student union, show her round your uni. At 16 I remember being in awe of university in general so I'm sure she would love to see around it. Also Warwick castle is amazing (at least it was when I was 9! :p:).
