Chances are, you've seen a Little Free Library while you were out running errands, going for a jog, or taking your dog for a walk. Since the first Little Free Library was put up in 2009, thousands of them have sprung up across the country and around the world.

Geocaching is a hobby that's being adopted in ever greater numbers by urban adventurers near the best Richmond homes for sale. Anyone who is interested in spending more time outdoors and has a mobile device, like a smartphone, can participate.
What is Geocaching, Exactly?
In geocaching, you use your smartphone to navigate to a "hidden treasure" stored somewhere in a publicly accessible outdoor space. These unique geocaches are left by other players.
The usual geocache is a small container, sealed from the elements, that includes a logbook and pen. When the cache is found and logged, the player should return it to its original location so it can be found again and again.
Players might be from the local area or just passing through. Likewise, many geocaches contain small items like toys or other trinkets, so each new discoverer can find an item and leave an item.
Get Started With Geocaching in the Richmond Area
Of course, we can't tell you precisely where to find active geocaches in Richmond!
