Early adventurers braved unknown lands armed with little more than all-terrain horses, a coal-burning GPS system, and plasma TVs useful only to barter for lukewarm porridge. Revel in the convenience of more advanced exploring with this Groupon.

Players must have a US cell phone capable of mobile web browsing or receiving texts and a digital camera or camera phone.

Stray Boots

Stray Boots is an interactive tour that sets friends and family members loose on an exhilarating, knowledge-fueled undertaking guided by clues, trivia, and riddles. They operate in cities across the country, dividing them into special themed tours that contain the historical sites, local areas of interest, or eccentric child mayors unique to each city. During the explorations, clues point the way to cultural hot spots, which Stray Boots communicates via their official mobile app. At least one player on the team will need an iPhone or Android phone to receive clues, and none of the self-guided tours require previous knowledge of the city. Adventurers play at their own pace—most tours take two to three hours to finish—which allows them to spend more time learning about the city and photographing vibrant fire hydrants for aquacentric scrapbooks.

A fun time, seeing and learning about places we'd never see on our own.
D M. · November 13, 2016
It was fun, the route was very easy to follow and we learned a few things. Its really more of a walking tour than a scavenger hunt per se. We went with 2 seasoned Manhattan-ites and they were surprised they learned a few new things. I'd recommend it more for visitors to the city. It took us about 1h 30 to complete. The app is well designed and easy to use.
