This geocache blog post shares the trip to Chicago for a conference and squeezing in some geocaching around the city. Especially when business is in a new state as the aim is to find a geocache in every state.
I started my taking a map of Chicago – looking at the tourist sites – and matching those to where Geocaches were – circling the spots that were walkable from my base hotel.
I then went out and had some fun! Here are some of geocaches I found and recommend:
Navy Pier was a fun place to go, a few geocaches in the area in walking distance.
I had a few DNFs (Did Not Find) on the day – so a little sad because I can’t just go back the next day.
GCHG28 – Navy Pier Micro
GC1PPOX – Gate to The Illinois Waterway
Chicago Water Tower
This was in the middle of the shopping district and with the sales on it was hard to keep my attention on either. Went into a store and then went for a geocache….perhaps that is the perfect combination?
I enjoyed the virtual cache which had a bonus webcam geocache!
