Fun and great way to learn about this area of San Diego!
Robert_M, Mar 2022
This was a fun and excellent way to see and learn about an area of San Diego that we’ve visited several times in the past, but never took the time to pay attention to the details. We enjoyed taking in all the sights and learning the history of the location! Highly recommended! Personal tips and critiques - The location and challenge tips we’re not too helpful for us. Take a little extra time to read each question carefully so you’re answering them accurately and completely.

Me and my wife loved working together to figure out this scavenger hunt! It brought us close and we were able to get to know the area so well. When locals showed us around we showed THEM new areas!
Response from Host, Nov 2021

Even though we come to San Diego every year, we still thought this was a really fun and different way to explore the city. Whoever thought of this is a genius! My only change would be to update the clues. We vowed to avoid using Google on this, but a couple of the landmarks and their associated signage had changed slightly since this was put together forcing us to cheat... only once or twice though.. in order to get all the info we needed. Great fun - I look forward to trying this out in a couple of other cities!
Super fun. We explored places we...
