BUZZARDS BAY – Are you looking for a new way to get outside and explore Buzzards Bay’s special places? Try geocaching: a modern-day version of treasure hunting. Geocaching uses GPS technology to lead you to hidden caches at parks, along trails, and in cities and towns around the world.

In the Buzzards Bay region, there are hundreds of geocaching adventures to discover. Some are probably hidden near your favorite hiking spots, while others will bring you to brand new places. So grab your smartphone and sense of adventure, and get geocaching.

Caches are hidden containers that people place in public spaces under rocks, behind trees, and in other clever spots. These caches are then listed on geocaching websites (the biggest one is Geocaching.com) along with their GPS coordinates and a few clues to their location. Caches usually include a logbook and some goodies left behind by fellow geocachers.
