Go On A Real Life Treasure Hunt On Your Next Missouri River Vacation: Geocaching

Have you ever wished to embark on a real life treasure hunt while on vacation? If so, you’re in luck thanks to the hundreds of Geocaches sprinkled throughout the Missouri River region.

If you’re unfamiliar, picture this: thousands of Geocachers hiding small treasures around the world, found only by navigating a Geocaching app. Oftentimes hidden in nature, finding these small, yet exciting treasures takes you to new places you’ve never seen before.
