For those who are needing a little break from their normal routine, why not see your city through the eyes of someone else. We all have little things we're drawn to day in and day out and everyone is bound to see things just a little differently. Find a friend or whole group of them and then...

...make a map of great things in your city that you've always loved. It could be a giant old tree in your favorite park, or the lady that always feeds the birds on a certain corner. Maybe you had your first kiss by a specific fountain or have a serious thing for the window displays at a specific building — the options are wide open!

Next, trade them with a friend or group of friends and go through a hunt through the whole city to mark off items on the list and see the world through the eyes of someone else. You'll be surprised the new things you notice, the cracks in the sidewalk or different graffiti, but the idea of staying put, while getting out to see, hear and experience new things is one we love!

For extra credit you can write up your places ahead of time and make it a true scavenger hunt by hiding notes of where to go next at each landmark before you begin! Happy sightseeing at home!
