The Munch Around Cambridge Scavenger Hunt

  • private
  • adults
  • outdoor

Eat, think, and be merry—and win!

See the best of Cambridge and Harvard while indulging in tasty snacks along the way. You can taste victory! On your culinary adventure, you’ll find surprising facts about John Harvard, a spot where George Washington made Revolutionary history, a bullet hole shaped like an L, the Harvard Lampoon headquarters, a blacksmith and a bookstore made famous by poetry, and more. And that doesn’t even touch upon the many delicious eateries you’ll also discover.

The incredible edibles include…

  • Cardullo’s (cricket lollipops, anyone?)
  • The Hi-Rise Bread Co., featuring surprisingly delicious grilled-cheese sandwiches with mustard
  • Pinocchio’s Sicilian pizza and a wall of famous fans
  • Herrell’s ice cream, from the man who also gave us Steve’s

One element of teamwork on this hunt: deciding which Munch stops you’ll hit and which treats you’ll share. We’ll make some scrumptious suggestions, of course. You’ll also be challenged to document your culinary conquests by taking creative Team Photos.

The hunt is a feast for all of your senses and has proven popular with all kinds of groups, whether they’re looking for a corporate team-building outing, an out-of-the-ordinary birthday activity, or a great way to have fun with friends and family.

  • outdoor

An adventure fit for a foodie

Dig into Boston’s oldest, tastiest neighborhood, collecting treats and answers along the way. Starring: a smorgasbord of edible and historical delights, including the site of the Great Molasses Flood of 1919, minty hot cocoa, graves of men who really “Mathered,” lobster-tail pastries, octopus tentacles, the center of the infamous Sacco and Vanzetti trial, a welterweight champion, cream puffs, and much more.

Along the way, you’ll take creative Team Photos to document your snap-worthy snacks.

Between-snack highlights include…

  • Paul Revere’s house and a sneaky question about planets
  • The Old North Church and a tricky problem involving, yes, lanterns
  • The early stomping grounds of the Kennedys
  • A site associated with the fight to free Sacco and Vanzetti, wrongly accused of murder
  • A bygone tavern where the owner was arrested for helping Quakers
  • Copp’s Hill Burying Ground, where tombstones are pockmarked by British bullets

Don’t want to spoil your appetite? For private groups, we also offer a version of the hunt that focuses more on local history than food.
