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.

Denver International Airport – Denver, Co

Adventurers heading home after an amazing trip in the outdoor city of Denver can still learn about the earth at the Denver airport. Hidden in the floors near Gate B29 of Terminal B are actual fossils embedded into the tile floor. Get your little iSpy masters and let them learn about the outdoors while being inside. User caccbag gives an excellent, quick lesson in fossilization here.
