If you enjoy scavenger hunts and are looking for a way to explore your neighborhood, you might want to try your hand at geocaching. Using a pair of coordinates and a few clues, geocachers set out to find hidden gems around them.

We discuss how geocaching can be a fun way to learn about where you are, wherever you are.
