Around town scavenger hunt

All you need is a couple of lists, transportation, and possibly one camera per team.

The list below includes things to find and photos to take. Use either one or both. 

Choose the items that best suit your town and/or add a few items of your own to make it a custom around town hunt.

Every town is different, so this list can be written a hundred different ways! Have fun exploring your town and meeting new people. Maybe you'll even make a new friend or two.

Added Challenge:

If you are conducting your Around Town Scavenger Hunt in a big enough town or city, let teams know that they are required to use public transportation only (no use of personal vehicles). This will provide an added challenge and a completely different view of the city.
