Scavenger hunter with telescopeGive the Gift of Adventure

Your dad has enough ties.

Mom always likes flowers, but do memories of flowers last a lifetime? And your brothers, sisters, and friends have plenty of books and DVDs. What they all really love is a great experience.

A gift certificate for a Watson Adventures Scavenger Hunt is a passport to adventure, letting the recipient rediscover his or her city with new eyes. On teams of two to six people, hunters follow clues to explore fascinating places, such as museums and historic neighborhoods, and answer fun, humorous questions about surprising details and remarkable secrets.

A Watson Adventures scavenger hunt is like a walking tour spiked with caffeine. And you don’t need any previous knowledge to do well and perhaps even win: all you need is a sharp mind and comfy shoes.

Gift certificates can be redeemed for admission to Public Hunts in seven cities: New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Prices for public hunts range from $16 to $45, depending on the venue, plus a $1.50 service charge per ticket. Gift certificates can also be used for Private Hunts in more than 27 cities across the U.S. And for procrastinators, workaholics, and everyone in between: fear not! Our gift certificates never expire–so you have the freedom to hunt whenever your schedule allows.
