    Guided from any smartphone, groups make their way among well-known and overlooked gems of the city, solving clues and completing challenges while learning local history. Your adventure begins at the Four Corners of Law and takes you on a well-designed course through historic squares and cobblestone streets, among ancient gravestones and down through the beautiful neighborhoods of this true Southern gem. You’ll visit famous civil war defense installations and experience the beauty of the Charleston Bay. The tour requires approximately 2.5 miles of walking and uses the free trolley at two points during the adventure. Using a smartphone as “the guide” allows participants to start when they want and determine their own pace of play. Stop to enjoy a historic monument, take in the ocean views or grab an ice cream… why not, it’s your schedule right? Offered at a fixed price for a group vs. per...

    My team bailed on me so I did the scavenger hunt on my own and actually had fun! Saw lots of cool things and walked a LOT! I suggest bringing paper and pencil for a few of the questions…they didn’t translate well to notes on the phone. Took me about four hours to complete, partially because I got sidetracked a few times. It was fun! I would definitely do it again in another location. It is, however, a bit expensive, I think.
