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.

Escape from Alcatraz – San Francisco, Ca

Travel the seas to Alcatraz. This cache is unique as it will have searchers role-playing to “escape.” Puzzle solvers will be running high and low through the cell blocks, the recreation yard/garden and on the dock! Answer the questions correctly and send them to user Jbond for an official certificate of your escape. If you make it outside, celebrate the rest of the day by soaking up the sun!
