Concord Scavenger Hunt for New Hampshire

The 603 History Hunt kicks off on July 1, giving people a chance to see New Hampshire in ways they never have before. The 603 History Hunt takes you on the road to test your knowledge of the Granite State and complete a series of challenges. Visit the world’s longest candy counter, locate a scene from the movie “Jumanji,” or find the grave of America’s first Black celebrity — all located right here in New Hampshire. Choose which challenges to accept based on your own interests and abilities, with over 100 challenges to choose from. Challenges ask players to complete a variety of tasks, such as film a video, take a photograph, answer a trivia question, or scan a QR code. Players choose which challenges to complete and how many challenges they want to undertake, and they earn points and win prizes accordingly. The 603 History Hunt is free, and players must be at least 13 years old to officially participate, but the challenges are great with family and friends. To sign up, download the Scavify app through the App Store or Google Play Store, or visit Scavify’s website at Participants will be asked to create a free account and should then search for “603 History Hunt” to join the scavenger hunt.
