Today is Columbus Day, to honor that great explorer. Why not celebrate the day by becoming an explorer yourself?
Your family can learn something unique about the City of Duluth in an exciting and new way. The City of Duluth has their very own Geotour entitled “Caching Duluth” which highlights different areas of Duluth that are historic, playful, educational, and fun.
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants must navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. Once found, participants must write down what treasure they found by using a logbook or log sheet provided on site. If participants take something, they must leave something of equal or greater value for other participants.
Right now, there are over 2 million geocaches in the world and the City of Duluth just added 39 more. This is the first Geotour in Gwinnett County and the fourth in the Peach State; making Georgia the largest active Geotour location in the United States.
The GeoTour stretches across ten square miles of Duluth, GA showcasing their unique history, award-winning parks and must-see hot spots! You will experience quite a bit on this tour from hidden gems within the City and new adventures.
