Geocaching Friday: Searcy

On Fridays, I’ll share some of my favorite geocaching spots throughout The Natural State. Even if you’re not a cacher, the Friday blogs will feature towns and attractions throughout the eastern section of Arkansas…perfect for a weekend trip!

It’s Friday, so we’re talking geocaching!! The temperatures are rising, the sun is shining and it’s going to be a beautiful weekend…the perfect time to do some geocaching!

Today’s town is a smorgasbord for cachers…beginners and longtime hunters alike. Searcy has an amazing 306 geocaches within a 10-mile radius. Yes…I said 306!! I’ve done some caching in Searcy but not NEARLY enough!

I have to say that caching is only as good as the cachers who plant and take care of the hides. Searcy and the nearby area have a group of dedicated cachers who not only enjoy FINDING caches but HIDING them as well.

The wonderful thing about caching in Searcy is that, regardless of your experience level, there are tons of caches to find…skirt lifters, red men, magnetics. If you’re in the mood to challenge yourself, Searcy caches are a great place to start.

And there’s so much to do in Searcy in addition to the geocaching. March 9 starts   Center on the Square’s production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. While in town, don’t miss Searcy’s scenic downtown, featuring shops and restaurants and the beautiful White County Courthouse, which claims the distinction of the being the  oldest courthouse in Arkansas still being used for its original purpose. Harding University is located in Searcy and is home to the Stevens Art Center and the Ulrey Performing Arts Center.

So that’s our caching community for today! I hope you get out this weekend, enjoy this beautiful weather and do a little caching along the way! Happy Friday, everyone!!
