The Secrets of Old Philadelphia Scavenger Hunt

Ever try team-building time travel?

This hunt takes you back to colonial times and the tumult of 1776. You’ll see and uncover the secrets of such hallowed historic places as Independence Hall, Carpenters’ Hall (where the Continental Congress first met), the site of Ben Franklin’s home, the First Bank of the United States, City Tavern, and Dolley Madison’s digs. The hunt also dips into Society Hill, with its carefully preserved homes of the colonial elite, and Old City, the commercial district turned trendy neighborhood with artists living in cast-iron buildings.

Don’t worry if you can’t tell Ben Franklin from Ben Affleck: the hunt requires no previous knowledge. You just need to use your wits and work well with your team.

A 5-star review on Yelp: “Our team of six did the Secrets of Old Philadelphia scavenger hunt this week. The game was really fun, easy to use on our phones and our guide Karen was always nearby if we needed something. Educational, entertaining and overall a great team building activity. Highly recommend.”

Another 5-star review on Google: “Fantastic hunt staged for our company offsite of 170+ employees. Staff onsite were super communicative and helpful, did a great job setting up the event and had fun personalities. Really enjoyed this and would highly recommend for any other corporate or team events! So much more fun to get out and explore the city for team building rather than staying in conference rooms, etc. Would definitely suggest working with the Watson Adventures crew!”

Yet another 5-star review on Google: “After 2+ years of not being together in our offices, the staff at the Alzheimer’s Association Delaware Valley Chapter needed to reunite and reconnect (and in some cases, meet for the first time)! The goal: fun and team building. Watson Adventures delivered on both! The Secrets of Old City Scavenger Hunt was interesting, challenging and exciting. Our host, Andy, was energetic and entertaining! When you see your colleagues relaxed and smiling, you know it was a good day! Thank you, Watson Adventures, for making the planning easy and for helping us execute on a memorable outing!”
