It was a great way to get to know the neighborhood and things you might not notice. only issue is 2 things are no longer there. the Blondie mural has been painted over. And the Anyway cafe is permanently closed now. other than that, excellent

This was an overall fun expierience. I got to learn more about the city I grew up in. However, there were a few flaws in the system. For example, one of the challenge clues had a ‘B’ in the word instead of the correct’p’. There was also a clue that led us to a cafe, but when we went there were no signs of the cafe, and the clue was a picture of something that we couldn’t actually see.
