See the best of downtown Greenwich…
…on a fun, funny scavenger hunt that highlights the village’s chic shops, charming streets, and hidden history. Just ask American Express’ Departures magazine, which commissioned the original hunt here. But this isn’t an ordinary scavenger hunt: you and your team will be challenged not only to create or collect unusual items but also to take clever photos and answer tricky questions that uncover the town’s entertaining secrets.
You might tackle such questions as…
- On Grigg Street, look down outside a place where you could get help looking things up. Who warns that you should practice an automobile safety procedure? Answer: Outside Diane’s Books, celebrity quotes in the pavement include the Bette Davis line: “Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night.”
- In Greenwich Common, find a couple whose relationship seems to be on the rocks. Who created them? Answer: A small sculpture on a rock is signed “D. More” on the woman’s right foot.
We’ve left out some of the directions and clues that will lead you to the right answers. No prior knowledge is required to triumph. Just keep your eyes peeled and work with your team!
An edition for kids and adults to enjoy together is also available.
