I want to live in the sunshine state

I attended college in Florida, and fell in love with the weather.  I decided not to move back north, and found a job in Tampa. I have been living in Tampa for nearly five years, and yet I continually come across new and fun activities to try.  Between sporting events, the waterfront, restaurants, shopping and theater, there’s always something to keep me busy. My friends and I recently tried out something called Operation City Quest, which is a very large scale scavenger hunt.  The whole activity was directed by a remote guide through our smartphones, and we were sent all through the downtown area of Tampa. We were given 150 objects to find, and spent hours searching for them. Whenever we found an object, we took a photo with our phones and scored points.  Along the way, we were asked to complete various challenges and answer trivia questions, which provided the opportunity to score even more points. There was fifteen categories of objects to find during our tour of Tampa, with the objects varying in points, depending on difficulty. The remote guide prompted us during the entire scavenger hunt, and offered help and answers to questions.  We even earned extra points for creative photos. The game was a ton of fun, and my friends and I managed to find all of the objects. The best part was seeing the downtown area of Tampa in a whole new way. Despite living here for nearly five years, there’s still shops, streets, architecture and interesting little areas that I’ve never noticed before. As usual, the weather was absolutely gorgeous for the scavenger hunt, and it was a great way to spend a day.
