This was my second Watson Adventure and it lived up to my expectations! The staff was personable and professional and the tour was fun and educational. There is so much great history downtown that I tend to forget about it as a tourist attraction. This tour takes you to it all. We unfortunately didn’t have time to get to about 8 of the 25 or so questions. The first 2 that we had were a bit difficult and that put us behind. I am a New Yorker who walks at least 2 miles a day and this tour wore me out – admittedly we had already walked a bit too much before the tour. You really need to come at this one fresh as it is a ton of running around… really… even for us jaded folks. – But totally worth it – take this tour if you are a tourist or resident – I learned quite a few things on this hunt. We were a pair of 2 and were partnered with 2 other lovely people as they prefer you hunt in groups larger than 2. This was fun to have some other perspective too. Sometimes these questions are tricky and it “takes a family”.

While the event started off bumpy (there are TWO flagpoles in Battery Park and the contact person for Watson seemed less than knowledgable about this)...and because of being late we didn't get to start on time or have the pleasure of joining with...continued
July 2, 2011: *The Revolutionary New York Scavenger Hunt:** *It’s a special Fourth of July edition of the Scavenger Hunt! Discover downtown sites where the Founding Fathers battled the Brits—and each other. Highlights include Alexander Hamilton’s grave, Federal Hall (where Washington was inaugurated), the street where Jefferson lived (and brokered the deal to move the nation’s capital to Washington, D.C.), Fraunces Tavern (where Washington bid farewell to his officers and where Hamilton worked as Secretary of the Treasury), a place where Washington slept, Bowling Green (with a fence bearing the scars of patriot fervor), a former hanging ground, a bank founded by Aaron Burr, Battery Park, singe marks from the great fire of 1776 and more. It’s a great, fast-paced tour of the Wall Street area.
About the Ticket Supplier: Watson AdventuresWatson Adventures sprang from the mind of Bret Watson, a veteran writer and editor (and occasional stand-up comedian), who started creating scavenger hunts in the early '90s for friends as a way to share his unique take on the lighter side of museums. As word of the unusual scavenger hunts spread, companies began to ask Bret to let them get in the game, and a business was born.
Since then, Watson Adventures has grown to span the nation, with more than 200,000 people participating in hunts, including employees of more than 1,000 prestigious corporations. All the while, Watson Adventures' scavenger hunts have received more media raves and other acclaim than any other company of its kind. Below, you can learn more about the creative, clever crew who've made our success possible.
