Why You’ll Dig Geocaching (& 14 Stunning Destinations to Get Your Start)

Okay, so maybe there aren’t any snake pits or rolling boulders but Geocaching—a GPS stash hunting activity—isn’t your average game of hide and seek, either. Set your crew up for “missions” including on-site word games and coordinates needing to be decrypted, all in hopes of finding tiny treasures at the end. From bat caves to fun historical and scientific facts, don your leather hat à la Indiana Jones and discover the most engaging, all-natural geocache spots below.

Original Stash Tribute Plaque – Oregon, USA

What’s more exciting than finding the first and original geocache ever published? Stumble through a farm (get permission first) to find a plaque that commemorates this special location. The first ever geocache contained: a Delorme Topo USA, 2 CD Roms, a cassette recorder, a "George of the Jungle" VHS tape, a Ross Perot book, 4 $1 bills, a slingshot handle and a pretty notorious can of beans. What a find!
