10 Urban Nature Adventures for Spring

Boy geocaching

More winter and spring adventure ideas

  1. Try geocaching: Technology plus nature plus a treasure hunt is a win-win-win.
  2. Rock treasures: Search for (or hide) painted rocks.
  3. Clam up: Clamming is easy, gets families outside in any kind of weather, and at the end of an hour or so, you have dinner.
  4. Storm away: Grab your kids and your Gore-tex and explore these beaches and parks that are at their best in wild weather.
  5. Rainy-day parks: Thumb your nose at the weather (and bring a towel) and head to the park anyway.
