The popular geocaching “ ” will be held on August 8th and 9th, 2014 right here in Washington County, or more specifically, West Bend, WI. Thousands of people will gather in the area stalking in almost every corner. Visitors come from all over the world for this event.
Here’s a thought – get an edge on your competition by staying at Hidden Serenity Bed and Breakfast and casing out the area now! There is plenty to be found for the geocache enthusiast in the surrounding area and taking a trip now could help you learn the area better for the “Ba$h” later in the summer. You can definitely get a jump on the 925-team field with a “scouting trip” before the event.
May and early June is a great time to seek out caches since they are no longer buried in snow, the vegetation is still small and walking is much easier in spring. Also worth mentioning is how gorgeous everything looks in spring as the buds come on the trees and some of the early wildflowers start to bloom.
Recent publications have counted over 1300 unique Geocaches within a 10-mile radius of West Bend which resulted in a trademarked slogan “West Bend is the Geocaching Capital of the Midwest™” that recognizes West Bend’s unique position in geocaching circles. With many parks, trails, paths you can enjoy the thrill of the hunt while still being only a 10 minute drive from the shops and restaurants in the city. The convenience even makes restroom breaks easy, which is not always the case when chasing caches in more remote areas.
Hidden Serenity Bed and Breakfast is the perfect waypoint for your home base whether scouting out the area or attending the “Ba$h”. We provide you with a restful sleep, a hot gourmet breakfast and knowledge of the Kettle Moraine Area. Get ahead of the rest and book now before there is no room at the inn. Plan your trip today and don’t forget your GPS! For more information on where to start your caching adventure visit: http://visitwestbend.com/geocaching/
