Richmond Scavenger Hunts!
Ready to get outside and explore?
In this era of social distancing, River City Food Tours is now offering neighborhood scavenger hunts! Step outside for some fresh air, stretch your legs, and learn a few neat things about the neighborhood you’ve been calling home. Or, go check out someone else’s neighborhood – maybe you’ll find a new favorite!
Playing is simple: once you purchase your ticket, you’ll receive instructions for downloading our app and entering your unique game password. Then you’ll see a map of the neighborhood with all points of interest – just head over to one to unlock the question!
- Each scavenger hunt provides at least 2-3 hours of outdoor entertainment
- The non-competitive format means you can complete the game at your own pace. Can’t finish today? Just pick up where you left off another time!
- Scavenger hunts can be played individually or as a small team, and they’re all family-friendly
- Our hunts include a mix of well-known and little-known points of interest – even long-time residents will discover something new about their neighborhood!
Be sure to bring water and comfortable shoes!
Note: these games are a great way to get outside while still observing social distancing. At no point will players need to touch anything besides their smart phone, and teams will not need to interact with any other people during the game.

Scavenger Hunt FAQs
What do I need to participate?
All you’ll need is a smartphone! After purchasing your ticket, you’ll receive a confirmation email with instructions for downloading our app, and a passcode you’ll use to access the scavenger hunt.
Does each person need a ticket?
Nope! You need one ticket per team. Each team will use one smartphone to play the game, so we recommend no more than 5 people per team (although you can have as many as you like).
How much walking will I do?
As much or little as you like! Since our scavenger hunts are non-competitive, we set them up to be done at your own pace. In each hunt, you’ll find 30+ points of interest, and you can discover them all, or pause and continue at another time. For that reason, we’ve gone ahead and added LOTS to each hunt.
