What You'll Get
Though a chartered yacht is a comfortable way to tour the seas, it can only navigate city streets with the help of hundreds of unhappy pack goats. Explore San Diego in terra firma style with today's Groupon: for $22, you get admission for one to a team scavenger hunt through Downtown from Where You Want to Be Tours (a $60 value). Tour meeting places vary, though they're always downtown and often at the Omni Hotel (675 L St.). Groupon customers can make their own team or join an existing team.
Where You Want to Be Tours helps outdoor adventurers, locals and visitors alike, unmask some of San Diego's hidden gems and offbeat scenes during weekly group scavenger hunts. On Saturdays from 3 to 6 p.m., teams of eight friends or randomly connected strangers traipse across two miles of untapped cityscape, mining for cloaked clues and coaxing directions from tight-lipped stop signs. Chic rooftop lounges, trendy hotels, and tourist destinations such as Petco Park anchor a treasure map of unique arenas where teams must work together to complete tasks in hopes of collecting prizes. Along the way, participants become familiar with and learn the names of popular landmarks and notorious clouds known throughout the Downtown area. As an added bonus, the two-mile scavenger-hunt routes avoid steep hills and spontaneous marathons to ensure that the interactive trek stays fun for puzzle solvers of all fitness levels.
