Geocaching

 

Grab your GPS and get ready to hunt down the hidden cache.

Geocaching is a modern day, outdoor hi-tech treasure hunt. A “geocache” (small hidden container) is hidden at a secret location – you’ll use GPS coordinates and clues to find it! The coordinates for each hidden geocache are listed on Geocaching.com.

In addition to the fun of a treasure hunt, you’ll get to know the neighborhood better along the way: learn about the area’s history, fun things to do there and little-known fast facts. Look for the geocaches placed in Wauwatosa, or make a day of it and try to find all fifteen throughout Milwaukee’s neighborhoods. Be warned – once you’ve started, it’s easy to catch the geocaching bug!

All you need to get started is a GPS-enabled device and a thirst for exploration! Geocaching is fun for all ages, so head out as a couple, with a group of friends or bring the whole family along (TIP: many geocaches are hidden close to the ground, so eagle-eyed kids are a great addition to your hunt).

Check out Milwaukee County Parks for more information on geocaching in the area.
