Geocaching

geocachingThe Great River Road is great for geocaching. Geocaching is a treasure-hunting game played with a handheld GPS unit in which players search for hidden caches using only coordinates. The counties and communities along the Mississippi River are home to thousands of caches. Caches are often hidden in some of the Great River Road’s most historic, culturally-significant and scenic locations.

To find the coordinates of caches hidden throughout all ten Mississippi River states, visit geocaching.com.
