There are plenty of places to hide in Queens - hide geocaches, that is!
The uninitiated in Queens walk by them every day, but those armed with the right map and a handy little GPS unit can find these hidden treasures all over the county.
Many coordinates and information can be found on www.geocaching.com. Type in the postal code or town name in the "Browse" search bar and a list of nearby caches will appear.
This is a wonderful way to spice up a walk with the kids or add a new dimension to your trip! If you are visiting the area and don't have a GPS handy, you can borrow one from the Region of Queens Recreation Department. You can reserve it by calling 902-354-3453 (Monday - Friday). Remember to bring some pins or small souvenirs from home to leave at the geocache locations!
