Covers the most quirky museums in DC and the best local spots of the area: Spy Museum, National Portrait Gallery, cool public art/sculptures, some Chinatown flair, and oddball spots like the house where Clara Barton founded the predecessor of the Red Cross.
From top-tier (window-)shopping to gorgeous embassies to cozy cafes, our Dupont Circle hunt has a ton of variety to please all scavenger hunters!
You'll be starstruck by the famous planes and spacecrafts in the museum: The Wright Brothers' 1903 flyer, Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis, and the Command Module from Apollo 11! And you'll see some wacky and historic crafts too!

What People are Saying
We liked the game because it took us to places and caused us to look at things we might not have otherwise.
Bernadine, Washington DC
We loved the game and the trivia tidbits you provided once we figured out the answers. In fact, the rest of our trip was spent laughing as we tried to remember the trivia or twist it to confuse each other. lol

Really enjoyed it - great way for the kids to get to know the city. We'll definitely do it again - looking forward to seeing you in other cities. I'm telling all our friends.
Amy, New Jersey
We thought we knew our city, but this showed us a side we had never seen!
We really enjoyed playing the game. It was very interesting and informative; directions were good and we got speedy responses on your end once we solved a clue. I've already recommended it to a few people.
Carla, New Jersey
The NY game is a perfect way to appreciate the smaller details that normally go unnoticed in those locations. It was tons of fun searching for all the answers.
Really fun - especially for my kids. They thought we were on the Amazing Race! Also, my husband and I saw parts of Chicago we had never seen before and we lived there for 15 years!
What a fun way to explore the city and see parts I never would have explored after living here my whole life! I loved the mix of fun and history!
We really enjoyed it. We really loved all of the little facts that were sent out in the message after we gave our answer. It's fun to walk around and check out all of the buildings, but learning about some of the history was very interesting. It was engaging, it kept us moving, and it was fun the whole way through.
