With a smartphone and some good walking shoes, Urban Adventure Quest has a maze of clues to be found around central Dallas in an interactive and exciting modern scavenger hunt customized to Dallas. Even those who live in big D will get to know their city on a new level.
This self-paced journey will take teams of friends or families through the city to the most famous and infamous sites around Dallas and even to some lesser-known places important to the history or development of the city, sniffing out the next tidbit of necessary information. This hunt can be conducted in one stint in around 2 to 3 hours beginning at Union Station or over the course of days, however it fits best into your schedule.
DART rail can accommodate those who need a break from the walking, but with a good pair of shoes, most will enjoy the pleasant walk throughout downtown. Spanning from Union Station to Pioneer Plaza to Thanksgiving Square, all the must-see's and do's of Dallas are included but at a more profound level than most would expect. Participants are challenged to spot details and explore in more depth than a snapshot and a smile, checking dates on historical markers and eying carvings in Dallas' ornate architecture.
For only $49 per team, groups of two to five friends can register for a hunt in the city of their choice and become experts on their own town or one far away. A great deal compared to standard tours, especially for groups, the sights will be seen, and what's even better, is that they will be learned about and made into memories. Urban Adventure Quest's website provides an extra $5 coupon, making the experience even more affordable. Aside from missing out on bad tour guide jokes, and finding better photo opportunities, this self-guided tour rivals standard tours in an unexpected and worthwhile way.
