Scavenger Hunt USA’s activities span the country, but they all share a similar bent—blending group bonding with city exploration. Scavenger Hunt USA teams up with iAdventure.com to produce scavenger hunts that reflect a unique experience that stands out from the hunts offered by other scavenger hunt companies, and utilize their local contacts to enhance outings with perks and prizes. The events range from themed scavenger hunts, complete with a clue-unveiling smartphone app, to pub crawls with drink specials guaranteed to be better than a free eyedropper of beer.
The dim glow of chandeliers and tableside candles, private nooks created by heavy curtains, and architectural features such as recessed ceilings, pillars, and scalloped carvings help transform Le Rêve Restaurant and Lounge from a Manhattan bistro into something out of Arabian Nights. As DJs, belly dancers, and Arabic musicians entertain, guests partake in Middle Eastern and American cuisine, such as chicken tagine (a Moroccan stew) or hanger steak topped with tobacco-mushroom sauce. They can also enjoy lighter bites, such as Angus sliders or hummus, while imbibing in hookahs, bottles of wine, or happy-hour drink specials. Those looking for a more private atmosphere, Le Rêve also offers two VIP rooms perfectly suited to more intimate events such as birthdays or tzatziki-eating contests.
The New Hope & Ivyland Railroad winds through the grassy hills and sweeping valley vistas of Bucks County, much the same as it has since the first tracks were laid more than 100 years ago. Not much has changed in the decades since—except for the fact that today, its passengers likely carry smartphones to commemorate their trips instead of hiring an oil painter to join them on the journey. The railroad has pushed into the modern era with a mission to preserve the "Golden Era of Steam Railroading"—a mission it furthers with public rides on its antique passenger train.
Every hour each Friday–Saturday—and sometimes on other days as well—an authentic steam or diesel locomotive pulls a train of restored 1920s passenger coaches and an antique bar car out of the station for a 9-mile history tour. As the train chugs through the countryside, narration unveils some of the history of the railroad and surrounding county. The railroad also offers special themed holiday train rides, dinner express outings, and a singles' mixer held in the bar car, where riders can connect by discussing the season's hottest conductor hats. Trains depart from Lahaska Station or the original New Hope Station, which has been in operation since 1891.

The staff of Pocono Segway Tours leads groups of up to 5 sightseers on segway-propelled escapades through the scenic Split Rock Resort in the Pocono Mountains. A battery-powered personal transporter, the segway allows recreationalists of all shapes and sizes to navigate the gyroscopic machine along wooded paths and roadways while taking in the area's picturesque vistas during guided, multimile excursions.
Though Washington DC has taken Philadelphia's place as the capitol of the United States, it remains a bustling metropolis rich with American history. Independence Walking Tours' guides––all of whom have at least a bachelors degree in history––dredge up past centuries' landmark events and scandals during their 75-minute walking tours. Their narration blends historical facts and local insight, with stops at Betsy Ross House, Walnut Street Prison, and Independence Hall, where teens often go to escape their uncool parents.
