Whether you were born and raised in Utah, or if you’re a newer resident, exploring the city where you live can be a great way to connect with your community and discover new local favorites. However, knowing where to start your explorations can be daunting; how do you know where to go to find new and interesting places to visit?
Well worry no more, because Scavengerhunt.com has you covered. Utah is no stranger to treasure and scavenger hunts. From gold and silver mining in the 1800s, to the 2020 Utah Treasure Hunt, people in this state have always seemed to have a fascination with finding hidden treasure. While historically treasure hunts end in just one person finding the treasure and leaving everyone else nothing, that luckily doesn’t have to be the case anymore. Now, with the help of technology, anyone can participate in a hunt in their own home towns and find the treasure of history, art, knowledge, and fun.
Scavengerhunt.com has games all across the country, in each major city. For those of us in Salt Lake, there are a few different scavenger hunts we can join in on. If you want to bring your kids then you can try the Salt Lake City Sights hunt or the Reading, Reverence, and Rock Legends hunt where you explore public art, parks, museums, famous historical figures, and more! Each person in your group will have a role assigned to them by the app which will keep everyone involved and excited.
Or if you’re more of a history buff and want to learn new trivia about how the city was built, you should try the Salt Lake Settler’s hunt. Get to know all about the state’s founders, pioneers, and the meaning behind our city symbols.
There’s also a Salt Lake City Bar Crawl hunt for those of you who are looking for an adult night out on the town. Any way you play, there’s something fun for everyone in the family to enjoy. Tickets and more information can be found at Scavengerhunt.com
