What you'll do

It all begins at a scenic spot that's a local favorite. We will get our missions and go over instructions/ground rules for the game. After a warm-up to prepare for this true sport, teams will take off to experience a wide variety of carefully curated locations throughout town. You'll drive in your car (special carless version available on request) to the various checkpoints, solving clues and accepting challenges that involve getting outside your comfort zone at each spot!

Both family and dog friendly, the game alternates between the indoors and outdoors with plenty of alternative spots and free choices too! You'll send photos to your host to document your progress. You can even interact with locals to solve clues! You won’t be able to avoid having fun, uncovering hidden gems and local secrets, making memories, laughing and learning along the way! Be part of the rich culture of this dynamic city! Every turn is full of surprises, so questions in advance are welcomed! Check out our hunts in Texas (Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, Fort Worth, Galveston, Corpus Christi); Destin, Albuquerque, Boulder, Charleston, Carmel, Monterrey, NOLA, Chicago, Phoenix, Vegas, Madison, & Cabo!

Where you'll be

Your quest begins west and generally unfolds all over town across roughly 10-15+ surprise checkpoints! Quirky destinations await: whimsical shops, street art, culture, nature, conversation pieces, history, more art, local quirks, culinary delights, etc. We organized the stops in a sensible, geographical fashion, avoiding backtracking/unnecessary travel. Be prepared to drive, but other options exist! Deciding how you'll get around is part of fun!

My boyfriend and I decided to spend our 7 year anniversary in Monterey this weekend and what better way to kick off the celebration than by going on a scavenger hunt? I definitely recommend people doing this activity the next time they come visit. It really made us get creative and think outside of the box and we had a lot of fun doing it. The hosts are super nice and interactive and they seem to really care about you and your experience. I’ll definitely be doing this again!

The Monterey Beach Scavenger Hunt was a great experience, we did it for our daughter's 15th birthday party and we had alot of fun. It is energetic, unique and well thought out. The interactive messaging with the host is awesome too!

This was a prompt to event for me. I wanted to do something fun with my friend. It was a beautiful day in Monterey. I wish there were more people involved in our challenge.

This was a fun and unique way to experience Monterey.... Taking pictures and dashing to historic sites... It was our very own mini version of the amazing race. Highly recommend this to anyone looking to explore the area. Keep up the great work, Kat & Team. 😍

We had a great time exploring Monterey on this Scavenger Hunt. We were able to do the whole thing except the finish on foot. It kept our kids engaged through the afternoon and allowed us to take things at our own pace. Loved that it started at a coffee shop we hadn’t been to before which was much needed!
