I have had great fun doing many scavenger hunts at partyies and youth events. This list may be too long so copy and paste the ones you like. The underlines can be filled in with stores and places in your area, so have a blast.
You can have the groups find and do activities like a check list, but I've found it much more fun to take pictures and be able to share the laughs and memories for years to come.
If you want to have a winner to the game give points to each activity.
Specify whether or not the list has to be followed in order (in which case you may want to give each team the list in different orders). Also, be sure that each team knows that if they speed, vandalize or break the law in anyway they will be disqualified. And HAVE FUN!!!
