Washington DC Scavenger Hunt 2017-11-29T11:00:13+00:00

Where are the most EPIC hunting grounds in Washington, D.C?

National Mall

If you want an awesome scavenger hunt in the most iconic part of the Nation’s Capitol, look no further than the National Mall. Your team can get ahead on the leaderboard by taking photos and videos in front of the Lincoln Memorial or the Washington Monument! You will have a blast exploring these incredible sights with your team!

“This was one of the coolest things we’ve done in DC! It was an awesome experience and tons of fun to do with friends. We also learned a lot about our city! Thanks cityhunt!!”

Penn Quarter

Between the Capital One Arena and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, there will be plenty of things to do and see at the Penn Quarter. Whether you’re a sports fanatic or a history buff, your team will be bonding in no time!


The moment you walk through the beautiful Friendship Arch, you’ll be welcomed into the small historic neighborhood of Chinatown. Your whole team can enjoy a delicious meal from one of the authentic Chinese restaurants while laughing at the photos and videos the groups took during the scavenger hunt.

The National Harbor

This stunning waterfront location has so much to offer. From the Capital Wheel and Casino Resort, to shops and fine dining on the water, there is something for everyone here. This team building adventure will have your group working together and bonding the entire time!


Explore the historic “Old Town” of Alexandria and enjoy the scenic views of Captain’s Row right on the Potomac River. You’ll be able to see the National Harbor and the Washington Monument. With views like this, you will definitely have great backdrops for your photos!

“Such a fun work team building event in downtown DC! Definitely recommend it for any teams looking for a unique event!”

“What a great team building activity! Had such a fun time exploring dc with my coworkers. The hunt took us to places we hadn’t seen before and the we loved the friendly competition. Thanks for a fun afternoon!”


Arlington is a densely populated urban county that is home to the Pentagon and many other “must see” places. Since your scavenger hunt will be done on foot, take a stroll down to Theodore Roosevelt Island so you can take a photo of one of your teammates posing in front of the President Roosevelt monument!

Our Washington, D.C. team building exercises are guaranteed to boost your corporate morale!
