Frequent visit of temples would be boring for teens and kids. The place that would entertainment kids would be boring for the adults. So try going to a single place which both the age members can enjoy just drive towards the Sathuragiri hills, that has a temple dedicated to lord Shiva, but the travel towards the temple would be a trekking experience, as you will walk through dense forest, a pond and many other adventurous pathways.
If you have kids it is a must to visit the Golwarpatti and the Pilavakkal dam which is the best picnic spot that has children’s play area.
