Urban Adventure Quest: 3-Hour Interactive Tour in San Diego

1. Urban Adventure Quest: 3-Hour Interactive Tour in San Diego

If you’re looking for a way to turn San Diego into a giant board game, try the Urban Adventure Quest. This is an interactive scavenger hunt that combines the fun of the Amazing Race with a 3-hour sightseeing tour of San Diego. Guided from any smartphone, groups make their way among well-known and overlooked gems of the city, solving clues and completing challenges while learning about local history. The adventure begins at the Waterfront Park and takes you on a well-designed course through Little Italy, the waterfront, and down to the war memorials. The tour involves approximately 2.5 miles of walking and uses the downtown transit system at one point in the game. Using a smart phone as your guide means that you can begin when you like and determine your own pace of play. Stop for a stroll in the park or gelato in Little Italy. The Quest is offered at a fixed price per group rather than per person, making this city tour/game great value for those on a budget. Points of Interest on Your Quest: • Little Italy • Maritime Museum • USS Midway • Bob Hope Memorial • "Kissing the War Goodbye" Statue

What people are saying about National Salute to Bob Hope and the Military

This was the most fun my husband and I have ever had exploring a city. Since COVID I wanted to find safe things for us to do together when traveling. This was top of my list and we had a blast. People all around were stopping and asking us questions about what we were doing and how cool it was. I would give this 10 stars if I could. It's a must if you're traveling to San Diego and an exciting way to see and learn about the city. I highly recommend it and you can't beat the price.

It was great seeing and learning about places in my town.

The hunt was so much fun! I have lived in the San Diego area most of my life, seeing this city from a different perspective allowed me to better appreciate it.
