A scavenger hunt often helps citizens get to know their community better, giving them the chance to explore the nooks and crannies of their neighborhoods while searching for the scallywag who's been scavenging in their attic. Find an excuse to explore your hometown with today's Groupon: for $5, you get entry for up to four people to a CityStreak scavenger hunt (up to a $20 value). CityStreaks are planned for Saturday, September 24 at 2 p.m. and Thursday, October 6 at 6:30 p.m., with more dates to be added later. Each event can accommodate an unlimited number of teams.
CityStreak pits teams of up to four people against one another in an Amazing Race–style scavenger hunt across Nashville, enlisting them to unearth clues and complete an array of fun and memorable tasks. Teams will access the CityStreak website to find their starting point and use a smartphone to access their StreakSheet, a dossier of all of their clues. During the hour to hour-and-a-half quests, teams trek across the urban playing field, solving puzzles or violently shaking magic 8 balls until they relinquish the answers to such puzzles. Each clue leads them to strategically placed orange Xs, which mark locations where members must perform tasks, such as finding hidden objects, line-dancing down the street, or serenading random passersby. The first team to complete all the objectives wins an unannounced prize package, which in years past has included plane tickets to Vegas and $300 cash. Races end at local restaurants where teams can take advantage of CityStreak discounts and mingle with opposing teams over a beverage or an impromptu break-dance battle.
