“Cache” in on all that Conyers has to offer!
Geocaching is a family-friendly treasure-seeking adventure that’s sweeping the globe! All you need to participate is a handheld Global Positioning System (GPS) unit or GPS-enabled cell phone, the geocaches you wish to seek and a spirit of adventure!
Here’s how geocaching works:
In and around Conyers (and throughout the state, country and the world) are a number of containers or “caches” that have been hidden and their coordinates noted with a GPS unit. Identify the caches you wish you find (some listed below; others available on www.geocaching.com by zip code or a specific code) and use your GPS to discover them based on their GPS coordinates.
Once the cache is discovered, log onto www.geocaching.com and add your Conyers finds to your validated finds.
The City of Conyers has placed several geocaches within the city limits. One cache is hidden in Olde Town Conyers and four are at the Georgia International Horse Park. The information on where these caches are located is below:
