Scavenger Hunts Redux! (Rainy Saturday Alternate Activity!)

Since the National Mall Kite Festival has been moved to Sunday on account of the rain, let's still meet-up and make the most of a soggy day!

Come join me down at the Smithsonian Castle where I will have copies of ALL of the old National Mall Scavenger Hunts (four total!). We'll form teams, you'll pick a hunt you haven't done, and we can kill a couple of hours before grabbing drinks and food afterward.

With such short notice (on account of the darn rain!) I expect we'll have a nice intimate group setting and we can travel around the mall as one cluster of multiple teams. This is a great way to get to see the museums, so sign up now!

If you haven't had an opportunity to do one of the scavenger hunts, they are a combination of riddles, puzzles, and quirky challenges. They are fun, I promise!

P.S - Most of the hunts are indoors, but be sure to bring an umbrella for walking between museums.


--- MEETUP INFORMATION ---

LOCATION: The Smithsonian Castle. It's the red-brick building on the National Mall. We'll meet next to the diorama of Washington D.C in the middle of the lobby area.

METRO: Closest Metro stop is the Smithsonian Station. You can also walk from Chinatown / Metro Center on the Red Line.

PARKING: D.C parking sucks. Park at your own peril.
