Geocaching on the North Shore

Geocaching North of Boston

Geocaching is a free, fun, high-tech treasure hunt, where players use a handheld GPS and coordinates to find the cache or treasure. Our cousin introduced us to the game this past spring and it is really fun.  Plus, it is free to start and it is an activity your entire family can enjoy together. The north shore lends itself to many fabulous Geocaching locations with over one million caches stashed all around the world – many here on the north shore. I very much enjoy and recommend it so join in and let the hunt begin!
