Schools won't want me to spill the beans on this, but let's face it - not every teen wants to go to prom.
This could be for any given reason: no date, dances are awkward, some kids would rather be antisocial (NOT necessarily a bad thing!), etc. There are probably some more personal reasons unique to each teen, as well.
I didn't go to prom myself - not for any of the reasons above (well okay, I didn't have a date), but mostly because my high school didn't have a prom. Not going to prom really wasn't a huge deal for me, and it doesn't have to be a huge deal for other kids, either.
So if you don't think you'll have as much fun at prom as the girl smiling in the photo above, check out these 5 things to do in Northern Colorado instead of going to prom.
