I can’t remember the last time that I went on a real scavenger hunt–it’s been too long. There’s something really fun about the combination of physical and mental activity. The problem is that a scavenger hunt is only fun if someone else sets it up for you. Occasionally there will be citywide events that challenge teams to trek across the city hunting for clues, but those can be kind of overwhelming and they don’t happen all that often. What if you and your friends want to do a scavenger hunt right now? You can try Stray Boots. They’re a New York, NY based company that offers scavenger hunts and interactive walking tours of a variety of cities through your mobile phone. It sounds like a pretty cool way to explore a city whether you live there or are just visiting.

One of the first things that jumped out at me about Stray Boots is that they’ve already had “over 60,000 paying customers.” That’s impressive–especially when you consider that a lot of companies in startupland have zero paying customers. You can read up on how Stray Boots works here, but it’ll probably be more helpful to watch the video below.

What you’ve probably noticed is that Stray Boots is based completely on text messages (at least as far as I can tell). They do have an app, but they don’t make it very apparent on their website. Once you visit Stray Boots’ Career page, you’ll see that they’re working on making the app a bigger part of the business. You’ll also see that they’re currently looking for a Marketing Intern. They don’t mention whether it’s paid or not, but it seems like it could be a really cool experience.
