West Bend Four Seasons GeoTourPublished: May 13, 2015
West Bend is the Geocaching Capital of the MidwestTM. Not only are there 1,400 caches within a 10-mile radius of the city, West Bend is also home to Wisconsin’s only geocaching mega-event, the West Bend $1,000 Cache Ba$h, held every August. In July of 2014, the West Bend Area Chamber of Commerce added a geotour to its already impressive resumé. You won’t want to miss it on your next visit.
The West Bend Four Seasons GeoTour is made up of 20 special caches, taking cachers on an exciting adventure through the historic city. The caches can be found in any season, proving geocaching is a year-round sport in West Bend.
Since officials began tracking it in September of 2014, more than 620 people from 15 states and countries have participated in the GeoTour, traveling a total of more than 42,000 miles to take part.
Geotour participants start by downloading a passport online at visitwestbend.com/geocaching or picking one up at the West Bend Area Chamber of Commerce. For each cache and code word uncovered, as well as for each meal and overnight stay purchased, participants will receive points, logged on their passports. Once they reach 25 points, they will receive a limited-edition Four Seasons GeoCoin. See the complete list of caches at geocaching.com/adventures/geotour/west-bend-four-seasons.
