Whether you’re a visitor or a local who’d like to experience Washington, D.C., in a new, fun way, here’s an opportunity to turn the city into one big game board you can play from your smart phone. It involves some walking (3.3 miles) and about three hours, so choose a day when the weather is tolerable and sign up online at UrbanAdventureQuest.com.
The scavenger hunt starts on the National Mall near the Smithsonian Metro Stop and ends at Ford’s Theater. Along the way you’ll discover sites such as the Smithsonian Castle, Sculpture Garden, Native American Museum, U.S. Botanic Garden and the Heritage Trail.
The scavenger hunt is available 365 days a year, sunrise to sunset, at the regular price of $49 total for a team of two to five people. Check the website for military discounts when you sign up, and for seasonal discounts such as the winter promo code BRRRR, which will save your team $5.
