Geocaching is an outdoor adventure game similar to a treasure hunt played with a GPS device. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, then share your experiences online. There are over a million active geocaches around the world and now, with the Downtown GeoTour, there are even more reasons to bring the family to Downtown Douglasville.
Obtain a Downtown GeoTour Grid Sheet from the Douglasville Welcome Center (12385 Veterans Memorial Hwy., Douglasville, GA 30134) or download it online by clicking here.
If you are not already registered to geocache, go to www.Geocaching.com, create a log-in and find the GPS coordinates and additional information for the Downtown GeoTour locations.
Start your search and locate one or all caches using a hand-held GPS unit. The cache containers are labeled as Official Geocaches. Caches are located in 10 points along Downtown Douglasville, GA.
When you find a Downtown GeoTour cache, log your name and any comments on the logbook inside the container. Also, fill in your Downtown GeoTour Grid Sheet with the letter unique to that particular cache, also located within the container.
Bring your completed Grid Sheet into the Douglasville Welcome Center during regular hours to receive your coin.
Or, mail a photo copy of your completed Grid Sheet to:
