Most people have access to a personal GPS device these days, whether they are the portable GPS units like Garmin and TomTom or a GPS enabled smartphone. Although it is a great tool to help you find your way around unfamiliar territory, it has some fun uses too, like geocaching.
Geocaching is a great way to explore your town in a fun and interesting way. All you need to do is find a website that lists geocaches, such as Geocaching.com. Once you find a cache near you, plug it into your GPS unit and get started on your adventure.
After following the directions to your destination, follow the clues for your geocache to find the treasure. Once the cache is located sign your name in the log, learn about the people who had been there before, and maybe even leave something for future travelers to find.
You can have fun geocaching alone, with your family or with friends. Here are a few geocaches near Peachtree City to help get you started. Let us know about your adventures geocaching by leaving a comment on the Balmoral Village Community Blog.
