Geocaching is a popular, world-wide sport that can be played by nearly any age. Geocachers are known for their enthusiasm, and many of them enjoy friendly competition to be the first to find new caches. Georgia’s State Parks and State Historic Sites have offered the game since 2010, with more than 35,000 documented “finds” by players. Inside each hidden box – or cache – are trinkets for players to trade, as well as log books. Caches at historic sites require players to answer questions about Georgia history before they can unlock the box, making them a fun educational tool.
