Albany, Georgia is an amazing community with many hidden gems to uncover. The Good Life City has many incredible dining, shopping, and hangout spots. We are highlighting 50 challenges to encourage you to discover or rediscover why you #LoveABY. 

It is summertime! This is a great time to get out and enjoy time with friends, family and even coworkers. To make it easy, we have developed the #ILoveABY Scavenger Hunt! Although there are a few challenges that may require an entrance fee, this activity is free to participate. To win, creativity will be key. Your team does not have to complete all challenges, do what you can between now and July 31, 2021.

The challenges are fun, awkward, and sometimes difficult to execute. Starting with Position 1 at Chehaw Parks Disc Golf course to a group selfie with the Albany Welcome Center Staff, you can experience new places and meet new friends throughout Albany. Teams can make a fun day trip or fun-filled weekend out of this scavenger hunt.

We even incorporated activities like taking a brisk bike ride on the Riverfront Greenway Trail, where the ½ mile marker makes the perfect water break and snap a selfie. Your team can mark off reading the Discover Albany Brochure while renting bikes at the Albany Welcome Center. Then, reward the team with a break at the king of popcorn before heading next door to Pretoria Fields for cold brews, relaxing tunes, and another opportunity to score a point by snapping a shot with staff members. Not of age to enjoy the cold brew, grab a soda. Everyone can enjoy life size Jenga, cornhole and family games. Or just be weird,ask to take a selfie and run out.

Riddle me this riddle me that, the hints range from easy to difficult. But we give you a chance for bonus points. A team who includes a video of their hunt, at least 30-60 seconds long, with the photos will get 8 bonus points. Be sure to show your team’s creativity, quality, and awesomeness. The best video will earn 20 extra bonus points, second place will earn 14 bonus points and third place will earn 10 extra bonus points. Did we mention the pictures downloaded to a USB drive will also earn 5 more points? What a deal!

What do you win? The team wins an I Love ABY prize pack, which will include 5 -$100 Visa Gift cards. For those overachiever teams who like to do things early, we will have weekly drawings July 9, 16, 23, and 30. Each team must complete at least 25 challenges to qualify for the weekly prizes. We will announce the GRAND PRIZE WINNER August 6th.

Turn in your USB or printed photos at the Albany Welcome Center, 112 North Front Street, make sure they are labeled with team name, members, and phone number. We can answer any questions and concerns about the scavenger hunt email cmcinvale@visitalbanyga.com Best of Luck!
