#AdventureCaching Guest Post: Discovering History through Geocaching in Boston

We were about to move cities and we decided to take one last trip together before the crazy began. So we traveled to Boston! We planned this trip before the Boston Marathon bombing but ended up visiting right after, which allowed us to visit the memorial set up at the finish line. So moving as we are both runners!

We were so excited about traveling to Boston and doing some geocaching that we couldn’t wait to find our first cache of the trip.  So we found ORD Layover (Virtual Cache) while waiting for our connection in Chicago.  A great way to start the trip.

Tea Party Musuem

Once we finally made it to Boston and settled in we checked out the Tea Party museum before we hit the streets to find our geocaches.  After exploring a bit of history we decided to do a little geocaching and discovered a couple of “must discover while in Boston”.  We found a couple of great caches Where everybody knows your nameLouisburg Square, and the Boston Skyline.  It was a crazy adventure filled day but we got to see so much by geocaching!  We finished the day with dinner at Legal Sea Food before grabbing a ride on the subway to our hotel to rest for another fun day exploring Boston.

After a great night sleep, we tackled a couple more geocaches while out exploring historic Boston.  Our first cache of the day was The Sea Mine before we walked the entire The Boston Freedom Trail.  This is a great Whereigo cache where we were able to see all the historical sites of Boston. Each place we visited had a great informational page that popped up on our smart phone about each destination along the trail.  So we learned while we geocached around Boston.  It was great!


We are both history nuts so we loved finally seeing these important landmarks in person!  This was probably our favorite cache of the whole trip even though we ended up walking over seven miles visiting all the locations to earn our smiley for the cache!

Boston reminded us the importance of remembering where our country started from and how precious our liberty is today. We encourage everyone to go visit the birthplace of our liberty and see Boston for themselves!
