Have you ever wanted to go on a treasure hunt across your city? It may seem unrealistic, but that's only until you realize that it's totally possible. Just imagine being given a list of clues and working alongside friends to uncover secrets and hidden gems within a city you thought you already knew completely. An activity like this requires skill, cleverness, and some pretty intense problem-solving.
Luckily, there's a good chance that you can already participate in Canada's largest scavenger hunt ever. The Tourist Scavenger Hunt offers interactive and mysterious adventures across the country that take things to a whole other level. Not only do you get to discover your city like never before, but you also get to hunt for clues and uncover hidden secrets along the way!
