What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. Geocaching gives anyone with a smartphone a free, safe, and fun outdoor activity while maintaining COVID social distancing recommendations.
Treasure hunters can get tips on exploring the area and log their finds by downloading the League City GeoTour Guide at www.visitleaguecity.com/geotour. Watch the video below to learn how to start:
League City is hoping this new tour provides residents and visitors from the Houston metro region and beyond with a family-friendly activity that can be done safely. “We are providing a new and safe experience for people who are eager to get out of the house, while introducing them to some of League City’s hidden gems”, said Stephanie Polk, Manager of the League City Convention and Visitors Bureau. Users are encouraged to share geocaching photos on social media with the hashtag #LCGeo.
