You’ll be amazed at how many geocaches are out there (over 2.5 million worldwide). We have at least 12 geocaches within a mile or two of our cabin and several more throughout the area. It's a fun activity for the entire family.  The basic app is free which will give you access to thousands of locations.  To get started you’ll want to visit www.geocaching.com for tips and more info.
