Geocaching in Hilliard Ohio teaches people of the town’s history

The city of Hilliard Ohio is putting together a very cool event this summer to help celebrate their 200th birthday.  The cities high school arts department have created and will place 20 nicely designed geocaching containers and will be hidden by the students.

The event is called, “Explore the Heart of Hilliard in 200 Minutes” because they expect it to take about 3 hours and 20 minutes to find all the caches.  The first 200 finders will get a free pathtag and all of the players will be eligible to win a $200 gift basket full of products from local merchants.

This is a great and fun way to get local residents out of the house to exercise and to learn about the history of the town.

More towns should do this to promote tourism in their area.
