Do you have a smartphone! Do you like to solve clues? Do you love history? Do you like to walk? Do you like friendly competition? Do you like solving clues? If you answered yes to all of the above then you should come to Oberlin and take part in the Amazing Oberlin Smartphone Race! All that is needed is 2 to 4 persons per team, with one person on each team with a smartphone. You start at the Oberlin Heritage Center where you are texted the first clue. When a team figures out an answer, they send a text or photo back to the center and receive the next clue. Now there are a total of 14 clues, covering about 2 miles, and should take you about 90 minutes if you are not side tracked for ice cream, coffee, or a beer!
This is a super activity to add to that list of things to do when you visit Oberlin, Ohio during your ‘Staycation!’ You may find there are so many activities to schedule that you will need several days to get it all in! You need to make time for the Oberlin Heritage Center and tours, the Oberlin Art Museum, the Oberlin Theater Festival, the Zip Line Canopy Tour, the antique shops, the quaint downtown shops, and then you need to take time to stop, smell the roses, and relax by the pool at Hallauer House Bed & Breakfast. You can race from now til October!
