I think there are plenty of things to do in Payson. Teens need to stop complaining about having to live in a small town and not having anything to do.
I have lived in Payson for 10 years, and I have never been bored with different sports and hobbies. The town offers many opportunities for kids to play sports, such as soccer and baseball, by having town leagues and two parks to play at.
The kids who aren't into playing sports should get a hobby, like fishing. There are lots of lakes and streams along the Rim and south of Payson where kids can fish and swim.
And even if you can't leave town, you could always meet some friends at one of the parks or the pool and have just as much fun.
